Hopefully Nintendo would get their act together like in the good old days.

quantum computers require super cooling, as well as only being useful on specific problems like optimization. They most likely will not be used outside of research and military applications.

I hail from the year 2016 to tell you denizens of the ancient past that, judging by current trends, consoles of 2020 will likely become PCs. Current console makers recognize the limits of remaining stuck to hardware that's often outdated upon release. In the '90s and '00s, this wasn't a problem since GPUs weren't a thing. PC gaming back then was always known to be second-tier to console gaming because of just how limited PCs were. A console could dedicate *all* its power towards gaming; computers needed some of that power distributed towards several things. But now, PCs no longer have that drawback since GPUs are just so damn powerful. 
 
With the latest "mid-generation" consoles coming out, we've seen that the console makers want to design consoles to be as much like PCs as possible. They're allowing mods to be downloaded onto consoles, which is just the first step. The next step would be to make a 'futureproofed' console that can be upgraded at one's leisure, which is probably what the Nintendo Switch will play with. 
 
So with that in mind, all I can say is...
 
HEIL PC


People have moved and are continuing to move away from desktops in favour of laptops. Tim Cook seems to think tablets are the next step, but even though he's wrong, desktops belong to yesteryear. The 8th gen console sales have shown that console gaming is anything but dead. With a market of that size, the giant game makers aren't going to protest en masse to produce PC exclusive titles. Fallout 4, Mass Effect Andromeda, Cod Indinite Warfare, Batlefield 1 etc.

It's possible that if hardware moves too quickly, development cycles will be shorter and we've seen this with PS4 Pro and Xbox One S. By 2020 very little will have changed but give it another 5 years and I suspect consoles will take the shape of living room entertainment hub that Microsoft tried to make the Xbox One. Later on, maybe all gaming will be done via streaming which removes the need to design games to fixed and finite hardware.

In the short term anyway, consoles priced around USD$500 will continue to be made as the vast majority of people buy laptops and want a dedicated gaming system that is always connected to their TV for when they come home.

Eventually, we will no longer have consoles when all sorts of games will be accessed from the cloud. That's the direction we're heading.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

I think this is spot on. Sony have tried to introduce this before, but they jumped the gun a bit.

 

It will be interesting to see if, when 5G starts rolling out, enough people will get access to the bandwidth needed to stream games reliably. Whenever this happens, a cheap console(or PC, or even smart TV)+broadband+paid subscription to PSN or XBOX live = cutting edge video game graphics.
