Apple gives E3 the finger with its own big gaming announcement

Digitally Downloaded writes: "Apple of course holds its own event at the same time, and an announcement over there has, essentially, kicked E3 where it hurts the most. Apple has made a gaming announcement that will have far-reaching ramifications for the entire industry." (Apple, iPad, iPhone)

Why use a controller with a touch device when you can just game on a console where games are designed to be played with a controller? I'm not interested in playing Angry Birds or Temple Run with a gamepad.

Presumably they are expecting games to be designed to use a controller. Still it doesn't appeal to me.

Being a two piece solution it's not very good for gaming on the go, and if I'm not moving around there are much better options for gaming.

Was funny because the Apple conference completely wiped the MS conference off all social networks/trending topics instantly haha.

MS had to pay to get a promoted trend up on twitter!

Talk about unlucky timing/being owned in the casual sites

Apple can kiss my rosey red arse. They're the high tech industry's trolls.

Sadly today, people were impressed with iOS 7, which is a white color scheme with a new lock screen and icons.

A glorified theme that people are excited over.

Awesome!! Now I can go into an Apple store and game on a 4 inch screen with my proprietary Apple controller for $60!!

/ sarcasm. I can't believe I stuck with a 4/4S for so long, the Galaxy S4 is the best phone I've ever seen in my life. Although, I do love me macbook pro.

This article is Trolling

How did this by any means kick the gaming industry where it hurts?

Who cares if Apple made an announcement at the same time... You want to know the difference real gamers had no idea because they are all watching E3. And I can already use controllers with Android devices so... too little too late and hasn't changed anything.

I give apple the finger, because they produce overpriced toys (called Iphones), I mean ...are they jacking serious, who buys such overpriced crap? Id rather go to ToysRUs to buy Furby.
