I think a third scenario is likely.They won’t die next generation but will lose a notable amount of market share. How much will depend on how streaming is adopted by consumers. If it takes off then Sony has a ton of hard work cut out for them to stay in the game beyond next gen.
To think Sony is doa next gen is silly but I also think a ton of people here are putting fingers in their ears trying to ignore the fact that the market is changing and it will impact Sony in a big way.
Streaming gets bigger and bigger yet consoles keep doing well
Consoles didn’t kill PC gaming and vice versa. Mobile didn’t kill console and handheld gaming, as PS4 and switch prove
The market has ebbs and obbs but it’s very likely that the 2b ppl Google reaches via Streaming or streaming in general are consumers who wouldn’t necessarily buy a console new anyway.
I can easily see the two market co exist. Like 150-200M+ console sales combined next gen and the gen after that even if streaming gets Netflix huge
