The video game industry is constantly throwing new platforms at us, and that's a good thing. Atari once ruled; now it's out of the console business. People once feared a Nintendo monopoly; now it's one of three major competitors. SEGA was once Nintendo's chief rival, but it, too, dropped out of contention. Browsers and iOS are making inroads against hardware in general. This constant jockeying for position means that game companies stay on their toes and deliver the best products possible.
