The Generation Game - Eighth generation of video game consoles - Netflix

In the history of video games, the eighth generation includes consoles released since 2012 by Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony. For home consoles, the eighth generation began on November 18, 2012 with the release of the Wii U, and continued with the release of the PlayStation 4 on November 15, 2013, and Xbox One on November 22, 2013. The Wii U was eventually discontinued in 2017 due to low sales to make way for the Nintendo Switch on March 3, 2017, a handheld-console hybrid. These video game consoles follow their seventh generation predecessors: Nintendo's Wii, Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360, respectively. For video game handhelds, the generation began in February 2011 with the release of the Nintendo 3DS, successor to the Nintendo DS, in Japan, followed by a North American and European release in March. Nintendo released additional variants in the 3DS family, such as the New Nintendo 3DS and the New Nintendo 2DS. The successor of the PlayStation Portable, the PlayStation Vita, was released in Japan in December 2011, and in Western markets in February 2012. The generation was predicted to face competition from smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs. In 2013, gaming revenue on Android overtook portable game console revenue, while remaining a distant second to iOS gaming revenue. In FY 2013 (ending early 2013), Nintendo sold 23.7 million consoles, while Apple sold 58.2 million iPads in FY 2012 (ending late 2012). One particular threat to the traditional console game sales model has been the free to play model, wherein most users play free and either a small number of dedicated players spend enough to cover the rest, or the game is supported by advertising. Before 2017, all three of the eighth generation home consoles use AMD GPUs, and two of them use AMD CPUs, a transition from IBM's PowerPC Architecture used in the previous generation. Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony were not aware that they were all using AMD processors until all their consoles were announced. Both AMD and Nvidia are optimistic for the PC market, as the unified CPU/GPU processors in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One use the same x86 programming architecture found in PCs, with AMD planning to introduce similar processors to desktop and laptop PCs in the near future.. With the release of the Nintendo Switch however, Nintendo used an Nvidia GPU and an Nvidia Tegra X1 chip as their CPU. Various microconsoles have been released since 2012, although they are seldom referred to as part of the eighth (or any) generation of consoles. These have included the Ouya, Nvidia Shield Console, MOJO, Razer Switchblade, GamePop, GameStick, and PC-based Steam Machine consoles.
