Game creator Hideo Kojima feels that the newer systems have to play up connectivity. "Well I really feel that there needs to be a lot of interconnectivity, just with other devices and anything out there. So then whether it's media, music, all that, it's all connected with that console so we could do it over cell phones and tablets. All that interconnected in one place, as one media” It looks like this is the next logical step in video gaming because it would allow a company to have a monopoly in this realm. All the gaming companies want this monopoly and if they made a phone and tablet, it would give them a leg up in the competition. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft moves forward.
