Insomniac Boss: Mobile And Tablet Won't Kill Off Consoles And AAA Blockbusters

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell: ''There's a lot in the papers right now about next generation being the last console generation, and accordingly, a lot in the papers about the "death" of so-called "traditional", time and concentration-intensive gaming versus the explosion of mobile software. Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price reckons you all need to calm down and see sense. One way of playing a game doesn't exclude another, given a bit of flexibility on the part of developers.'' (Industry, Ted Price)

Of course they won't.

Unfortunately, some "industry" people don't have enough common sense.

Saying apps will take over AAA games is like saying inde movies will take over the box office. One or two does not equal a trend, and some people just can't seem to get a grasp of that.

Also with next gen around the corner with steam box bringing steam in the living room will lead ms and sony to be more competitive in pricing. Right now I see gaikai as quick rental option for gamers and non gamers to play high quality games instantly.

The cheap phone game era is basically going to die because game prices online from downloads to streaming will completly take over. I can see people accessing their PS4 from other device via cloud or miracast technology.

Ted price is a real good guy I read about how insomniac came to be its very interesting stuff by that backstory alone I became a bigger insomniac fan and to get on topic im happy he sees beyond this phone/tablet fad consoles and gaming pcs are for the people that take gaming seriously I say "yes I want to buy a game console and pc rig for my gaming hobby!"

EDIT: pressed send early and corrected some words

Idk if you saw my other post but I was on E3 few years ago and the guy was doing line with me to play KZ3 demo and I say wtf? in my mind can't this guys just say to sony "let me try KZ3 demo on the privet boot you guys have on the top floor? " he was doing line like any other guy on the show and me and my friend's start talking about Resistance and what we want for
R3 and he seem to know all this already and he was very nice to talk to and if you play R3 campaign you an see how he did please his fans and did a great SP.. one of the best!

I just hope he going to Sony as a exclusive I do think Insomniac can improve with Sony more then the others or been alone, I hope EA show their true face and scare Insomniac and make them rethink about going exclusive to Sony. but that my personal opinion I may be wrong.
