Darkness 2 dev: iPad will 'encroach' on consoles

The Darkness 2 project director Sheldon Carter believes that Apple's iPad poses a threat to traditional home consoles, expressing his "absolute" belief that it will encroach on the market. 

"I think the home console experience is going to be with us for a long time," he said. "Do I think that the iPad will encroach? Absolutely, it has to. You think about how many iPads are out there already, iPads and other mobile devices. 

"But I don't think it'll be exclusive, I don't think that just because somebody buys one of those things they wouldn't buy a console."

Carter said it would be "awesome" to have a Darkness game on an iPad, with swipe controls for the demon arms. Sounds ripe for the Wii U version, right?
