I don't like Apple and their closed format products

People forget that Apple doesn't actually make any games, nor have they made any effort to keep games exclusive to their platform. People buy Apple products for the social status first, the functionality second, and the games third (if at all).

That's what scares me about gaming on Apple. I'm not even sure Apple cares about games. The former CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, was notorious for not caring about games on his platform and if Apple are dominant, who will care for portable gaming anymore if the hardware maker doesn't?

"I don't like Apple and their closed format products"

How is that different from consoles? all of them are closed platforms.

On topic

No i dont think Apple will be much of a threat, yes they will be an annoyance on the handheld sector specially for the casual gamers. For the hardcore not at all.

I would think Steam is a far bigger threat to consoles at the moment.

"closed format products"

Like their support of HTML5 and helping to popularize it and make it a standard. Or what about H.264? AAC? Webkit? Or how about their Operating System which is based on Free BSD. Dude you have no idea of what you're talking about. Compared to the rest of the companies out there, Apple is the least closed/proprietary these days and especially when compared to Sony or MS...bwahah!

And it's because of Apple's iTunes store and its business model that the PS4 will be more open and less restrictive next-gen then what it was this gen. Sony copied it down to the last detail.

Apple's focus is elsewhere, they have no desire of getting into the gaming space in the traditional sense like Sony and MS have, what they do is create a platform and allow creatives to populate it with whatever they want to create and if it sells great, if not they move on to what will.

I have recently moved to Android and it's not great. I am going back to my secure and closed environment that even MS are now copying lol

Nope because apple isn't taking gaming that seriously, plus there cutting into sales of the 3ds and vita not the home consoles

I could see them having game apps through they're console just like they do with ipad(if it be any console). They also have a load of money like Microsoft. Apple/Nvidia, game over...
