Did anybody else catch Apple's iPod event this a.m.? Lots of demos of new games for iPods, but they made a comment basically saying that Sega and Nintendo have nothing on Apple when it comes to a gaming experience. I think this is a crock. How many people were showcasing and playing iPhone/iPod games at PAX? None. Ok fine. Next to none. Hard core gamers just aren't switching to iPod games.
While Apple does have a great new platform for the gaming community and a lot of great game apps for that platform, I just don't see a huge switch in that direction for real gamers. At least not yet. Scrabble? Tetris? Wurdle? Sure. First person shooters with sucky frame rate and slowdown? Yeah not so much. I admit, I have games for my iPhone, but do I play them all the time? Not really. Nowhere near as much as my DS. I don't want clumsy controls that share the screen with my graphics when I need precision movement!!
Drop the cocky attitude already, Apple. You're just not there. At least not yet.
