MMGN writes: The times, they are a changin'! Video games are being played by more people now than ever before, thanks to the Wii and mobile gaming.
Now that a casual, broad audience has been introduced to the market, the video game industry is suddenly very appealing, and it's absolutely no surprise that industry figures believe Google and Apple will soon compete with the three big players in the console market: Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.
But do Google and Apple have a place in the industry?
That's the question often posed by gamers, especially MMGN members. Gamers in general seem to be cautious of any entry by the companies, as current software and hardware offered by both arguably don't really appeal to the hardcore gamer.
