Steve Jobs, iOS voted biggest influence on game industry

According to a survey completed by over 1,000 professionals at the London Games Conference, Steve Jobs is considered the most influential person in the videogame industry, with the iPhone providing the most significant gaming device. 

Jobs got 26% of the vote, followed by Valve honcho Gabe Newell (16%) and Nintendo's design elf Shigeru Miyamoto (7%). As far as products and services, the iPhone came out on top with 17%, followed by the Wii (7%). Xbox Live and the original PlayStation sat at 3% each. 

46% of the industry members named Jobs in their top five personal influences, while 53% of them named the iPhone as a top five influential product. 

There is no denying at this point that iOS is a huge force in the games industry, and stuff like this goes to show that the industry has embraced the fact. I dare say that gamers themselves will need to learn to accept Apple as well, because the company is not going to just disappear.
