Analyst firm Pacific Crest Securities believes that in just two years from now, Microsoft and Nintendo will be launching new gaming consoles.

“We believe that peak industry sales will occur in 2010, given that Microsoft will likely introduce its next console that year and Nintendo will likely launch before then,” said Evan Wilson in a GameIndustry.biz article.

The analyst firm also mentioned that the highly popular Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable will reach the end of their life cycles at the same time as the consoles, and will be replaced with new handhelds.
