Friends List: What does the new iPad mean for video games?

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Surprise, Apple wants people to buy more iPads! Does new hardware mean the end of console video games, as some people predicted years ago? Or is the mobile device less relevant now than ever with the arrival of the next-generation of consoles?

If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series in which members of Polygon's editorial staff answer an important, unusual or agitating question related to video games. The goal is to give Polygon's many team members across the globe an opportunity to speak with you directly via video.

Today, I'm joined by Managing Editor Justin McElroy to answer this question: What does the new iPad mean for video games? The episode will begin at 2:35 p.m. ET and will be available via YouTube following the recording.

Share your opinion in the comments. We'll field some questions at the end of the episode.
