Miyamoto Describes Smartphone Gaming as “Pathetic”

To say smartphone and tablet gaming has blown up in recent years would be the understatement of the century; Apple has made a fortune off of the iTunes store, games like Angry Birds are known the Continent over, and Candy Crush probably leaves more people broke and crying than Las Vegas at this point. All praise aside, however, it did not fulfill the doomsday scenario that market analysts everywhere predicted; the end of handheld consoles.

Cmon... that's not wat he said...

This is kind of old news.
Taken out of context "news"
I agree though.
Smartphone gamers are pathetic.
I played angry birds and blitz brigade fer a bit... but the only games I play are emulators.
To me its the only game purpose a smartphone has.

Journalism at it's finest.

Y'know what I'd like to see?
A popular gaming news website that is willing to call out the people that make these kinds of BS click-bait articles.

Put enough of these idiots up on the virtual "wall of shame" and eventually there's going to be an ebb of click-bait articles around these parts.
Sometimes being an a** is the only way to counter a click-bait-producing bunch of a**es.XD

Well its true which ever way you slice it.

Chrischi19881501d ago

It is true, but not really what Miyamoto said.
