People said this last year and I think the demand for dual cores has actually increased since then.
Its really looking like we're going to see more GPU accelerated physics than quad core optimized games.
No doubt, more cores is better, but you also get more heat, less overclocking head room, more power consumption and higher cost.
Its really hard to beat a CPU that costs $200 and can easily hit 4Ghz for gaming price vs. performance.
Maybe next year things will be different, but I think we're more likely to see more CPU load shifted to the GPU than a huge increase in quad core support.
