The next round of game-platform redesigns might still be four or five years out, but chip and software designers inside the regions of wireless, microeletromechanical systems, displays, miniature cameras, sensors, actuators and storage provide an possibility to participate those multi-100-million shipments as platforms respond faster to user demands by centering on interactivity, connectivity and knowledge display.

Indeed, this might push gaming platforms from peripheral to the center of the home-entertainment system and replace the set-top box with broadband and cable/satellite capability, complemented by fully digital or optical video and audio inputs and outputs and PVR storage.

From the time the latest crop of game platforms began rolling out late a year ago, improvements and upgrades were already from the works. The Xbox 360 Elite's major advances over the Xbox 360 console were a bigger hard disk and a HDMI connection.

Sony is also planning to to push out a PS3 having an 80-Gbyte harddrive, up from 60 Gbytes--and will kill the 20-Gbyte option. The move to on the net along with the ability to download content has become a huge driver of local storage.

Nintendo's Wii was included with Wi-Fi capability out-of-the-box and while the mediocre ones support Wi-Fi as a peripheral, SI expects these phones own it from the box soon. Together with the runaway success of Wii's 6-axis controller technology, MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) is anticipated to get an increasing portion of controller design, as well as PDAs as well as other handsets. For wireless, 802.11n is hot.

Features that is to be common next generation of video games include force feedback and rumble capability, motion sensing, vision feedback and high-definition using either Blu-ray or HD-DVD.

Also in the future, storage size or hard disk size increases from Gigabytes to Terabytes. When the debate on Blu Ray and HD-DVD settles down, game titles is going to be released on one of such mediums instead of the current DVD technology.

The caliber of video game graphics will also improve as more powerful graphic processors and game engines come out and can allow 100% realism in gaming experience.
