In terms of raw polygon count and processing speed, gaming consoles are getting to the point of diminishing returns, most people don't notice a difference between 60fps and 120fps, and Xbox One already supports 4k in their newest slim model...so what's next?

Switch clones.

The future will be handheld/home console/tablet all-in-ones. Hardware progression on desktop computing has slowed, but has been rapidly accelerating for small form factor computers in phones, tablets and smart watches. ARM processors allow for tablets to be able to wake from sleep mode at ease without needing fans to cool them down. Increasingly we are entering an era where you don't have to sacrifice portability for power.

And speaking of diminishing returns, as the graphical improvements of each new generation of consoles becomes indistinguishable, consumers will start to gravitate towards aesthetics, quirks, and gimmicks rather than pure horsepower.

"BUT...BUT...VR?" Virtual reality will not go away, nor will it become the industry standard; it will be an optional add-on. Not everyone wants to lose visual and audio awareness when they play video games. Some people play games and talk to friends and family members in the room at the same time. Some of them talk and text on the phone during loading screens. Some of them do schoolwork and chores between matches. VR isn't practical for the lowest common denominator and will never be the primary interface of a console.

There are 4 different video game markets right now: cellphone/tablet, handheld, console, and PC. If Microsoft created a Switch clone with Windows 10, they could reach all four markets and reach the lowest common denominator of customers. That is the future of gaming.
