The past couple of weeks have seen the release of two next generation video game consoles: The PS4 and the Xbox One. I love when new consoles come out. It’s such an infrequent occurrence that every console becomes a milestone for design and technology. So I thought it would be fun to break down the game industry’s efforts, as well as try to decipher where they’re going next, with my buddy Peter Rivera-Pierola. Besides being an avid gamer and tech nerd like myself, Peter is also an industrial designer and a manager of strategic concepts at McDonald’s in Chicago.
