Edge: Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has suggested that the "iPod touch is the most dangerous thing that ever happened" to game publishers.
Putting major franchises on Apple products cheapens their value, according to Pachter, who also believes that youngsters brought up playing games on iPod touch and iPhone are less likely to graduate to other gaming systems than previous generations of players brought up on arcade titles and Nintendo handhelds.
"I think the publishers are completely lame on this, I think they have it wrong," Pachter told Bonus Round. "EA's chasing it because they think it's an opportunity. I think the iPod touch is the most dangerous thing that ever happened to the publishers, ever, and they don't get it for two reasons."
