Bill Gates thinks the future of gaming is in its “social” aspects.

In comments made in an article on GamesIndustry.biz Bill gates expresses the opinion “that most of gaming, particularly as we draw in both men and women and people of all ages, […] is going to be social.”  While I do not disagree with this, the GI.biz article implies that Gates thinks XBOX Live is more social than devices like the Nintendo Wii.  Or at least that is what I read into it.  Bill might like staying at home and playing Rainbox Six against other 14 year olds, but personally, I’d rather have a bash at Wii sports with friends while we all stand in the living room together than do the same thing online with random strangers.
