Apple's iPod chief on the bright gaming future in store
iPhone gaming is set to top Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS, according to Apple boss
Greg Joswiak, Vice President of iPod and iPhone Product Marketing for Apple, is confident that gaming is at the centre of Apple's future successes and that the iPod is a better gaming device than Nintendo's DS or Sony's PSP.
Games are central to the success of the iPhone and iPod touch, in Joswiak's opinion, as he tells T3.com: "The biggest category of all in the apps store has been games. There are over 1,500 games and there's a great affinity between the iPod touch customer and those games.
"Whereas a lot of these devices [picks up Nintendo DS and Sony PSP] are more in the past. And a big part of that is not just the device itself, which is easier to carry, and has the touch display and accelerometer which is great for gameplay, but it's the electronic distribution of the apps as well."
