Makes sense. All that mobile talk was kinda sending a mixed message.

...or ever, for the kinds of games Epic makes.

Mobile gaming is a phenomenon, if the game costs $0.99, and the publisher didn't spend more than $250K on making it.. if that.

I don't think most serious gamers are ever going to be pleased with a game that costs less than $250K to make, especially on hardware like the Tegra 3, etc.

Mobile gaming needs to get popular in the $10-$15/game range before any serious publisher will make serious games for it.

Epic has no interest in chump change apps. My point is made.

chump change? Didn't angry birds sell over 50 million?

even "chump" change adds up. those mobile developers know that, which is why they are in that business to begin with.
