With the ongoing trade war between the United States and China, major problems could start to surface for Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. The three largest console developers all manufacture 96% of their consoles in China and video games are on the list of items to be hit by the new 25% tariffs. There’s already been speculation about the cost of the next generation consoles, but a 25% price increase on top of that will undoubtedly affect peoples purchasing decision. Also take into account that console’s are already very low margin, today most of the revenue comes from video game sales, peripherals and micro-transactions. With all of that in mind, could Stadia be posed to take the next gen by storm?
