I'm all for looking to the future and judging by the way things are going, all outboard gear will be surpassed by soft synths soon enough.
HOWEVER, having said that, I have a microkorg that is completely unused because I solely use Reason. And music is not just about being at the pinnacle of technology.
Using actual (ie not emulations) classic synths adds story and character to your music. That is something that will never cease to exist. In the same way using a real guitar or a piano does. Sure emulations sound great, but it's not the real thing!
