If you constantly follow the happenings of what goes on in the video game industry than looking forward into what gaming will offer in the future is something that is bound to come touchtunes_Allegroacross your mind. Obviously we thrive on new ideas and new releases to keep us going so anticipating what might be around the corner is worth considering. AH contributor and arcade industry consultant Kevin Williams has just penned an article dealing with the future of both console and arcade gaming and what direction it might go in and it has something to do with digital jukeboxes. Kevin makes a well-thought out case for such changes and with download-only services becoming increasingly popular, this is an idea that is on it’s way in some form. In case you are unfamiliar with what the jukebox model might be and how this could work out, I suggest checking out Kevin’s article, which you can read here at the Vending Times.
