Nintendo aims to counter Apple with new portable 3D gaming system
AppleInsider | Nintendo aims to counter Apple with new portable 3D gaming system
Quote:
Nintendo surprised the gaming world this week by preannouncing a glasses-free 3D successor to the Nintendo DS, a new portable platform that the industry leader hopes will fend off surging competition from Apple's iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
It seems Nintendo feels threatened by the success of gaming on Apple's portable devices like the touch and iphone.
So maybe the next IT war will not be Apple Vs MS. It very well could be Apple Vs the Big "N".

******************

iPhone, iPod touch carve 19% gaming share from Sony, Nintendo

Over the last year, Apple's share of the US video game software market has jumped 500%, eating into the growth of console games while also putting pressure on mobile gaming leaders Nintendo and Sony.
Just another random article on a very similar subject. Hmmm maybe Apple without planing for it have become a major player in the gaming market. And people say Apple can not make a a good machine for games. Well the stats say otherwise

I am also a fan of the Big "N". So I really don't want to see Apple put them out of business (and by definition MS's and Sony's gaming console division would by pretty much dead at that point too). I will really be interested to see how this plays out. Cause No matter who loses this war I'll be sad. As I've always been fans of  and the big "N".

And lastly this:
Games command 44% of apps tested by Apple for use with iPad

Quote:
As Apple continues to test applications for use on its forthcoming multimedia iPad, nearly half fall into the games category, while just 3 percent are books.
It seems many people are seeing Apple (ipad) as a good platform for games, cause a lot of people are making games for it.
