What if console games are sold on a platform that has low piracy rates and millions more potential customers.? The AAA industry is drowning. This could be a life preserver. Keep the chin up!
Noting this here, because I expected more replies from people who didn’t read the article:
The entire point of connecting controllers to iOS7 is to make console games playable on Apple’s mobile devices. In theory, you’d be able to pay for a full priced game — not a 99 cent one — and play it on your iPhone, iPad and possibly Apple TV.
As for the cost argument, that assumes you don’t already plan to own an iPhone or iPad. People buy consoles to play games; people buy phones to make calls, surf the internet, fiddle with apps and play games.
The point is controller support allows “real games” to exist on iOS, meaning they reach a broader and bigger user base. Wouldn’t you want to have all your games with you at all times?
Noted and double noted. As anyone who listens to the show knows, the rules and structure are… flexible.
We’re always looking for more opportunities to film the show. Hopefully we can squeeze in a few more video episodes before the end of the year.
This is an op-ed by someone who doesn’t work for Polygon. At least finish the article before making baseless accusations.
Ha, I actually used /r/buildapc when I built my PC.
I love all of you. Let’s get ice cream.
Pretty sure this isn’t a photoshop.
This is a healthy mindset.
For a couple weeks, I resisted Animal Crossing because the concept of collecting items day after day seemed pointless, like the world’s deepest, value-free time sink.
But on Friday, I spent an hour with the game and started to “get it.” It’s a virtual bonsai tree, this calming space that you groom and modify to your liking. Griffin’s right: playing Animal Crossing is like a vacation, a mini-zen escape.
I probably will buy or be given a console. My work requires me to be up to date on the entire industry, even the parts I like less than others.
Thanks for reading. There’s an interesting story to be told about Relic. Hopefully we’ll dig into it soon.
This was one of my favorite seasons. Cochran’s growth from his previous season to this one captured what I love about the show.
As did Brandon’s “I’ll pee in the rice. I’ll be in the beans. I’ll burn the shelter to the ground.”
