Apple today unveiled its new tablet device called the iPad. There's been speculation over the last week or so about how the new Apple platform would impact the games space. Prior to the big announcement today, IndustryGamers briefly spoke with Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter.
"The Apple tablet is going to be priced pretty high, certainly more than $300 [indeed, it starts at $500 - Ed.] so it's going to have limited appeal to gamers, although some people will buy it obviously. I think the early offerings on the tablet will be a lot closer to iPod Touch/iPhone style games, and then probably morph into DS kind of games and then ultimately will morph into PSP quality games," Pachter commented.
