Same thing was said at the start of the last console generation, and, while the prices did rise, output from the industry didn’t decrease – it increased.
There are still unexplored markets in the games industry, lots of them.
Anyway, even if the worst comes to the worst, and the industry implodes (unlikely in the extreme), The expertise and the demand for games to be made will still be there. A new distribution model will emerge – and that may even be a good thing.
Actually, come to think of it, a new model is emerging – online distribution. Ireland isn’t much a part of it yet, but once we have omnipresent wideband (at the very least) internet infrastructure in place, it will become obvious.
bla, bla bla bla bla-bla.
