Gaikai predicts Sony or Microsoft to bow out of next gen

"That will be the big news at E3."

One of the three main platform holders doesn't have the stomach for the next generation of console hardware, according to a top exec at game streaming service Gaikai.

As reported by IndustryGamers, chief product officer Nanea Reeves told an audience at CES in Las Vegas today that she anticipates that one of the main platform holders will decide not to launch another round of hardware.

"Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3," she said.

With Nintendo already prepping the Wii U, that leaves either Sony or Microsoft. Grab yourself a pinch of salt and place your bets.
