Android Will Have No Effect on Mobile Gaming for the Foreseeable Future

"I love my iPhone. One of the reasons is the massive amount of quality games on the platform. With the recent explosion of Android handsets, one would think the mobile gaming space would immediately evolve, but that won't be the case. Android will not have any meaningfully impact on mobile gaming for quite some time."

its pretty sad the portable format with the most powerful phones suffers to a more popular less powerful format.
PSP vs DS much

You can have all the hardware in the world in a device, but if the Operating System doesn't deliver the necessary tools to succeed with major development, it's all a wash.

good pt.

Mobile gaming is making strides but the days of making the PSP and DS obsolete are distant.

Android phones are great. I'm hoping that some devs will see potential in making games for Android handsets. But as of now nothing can take Nintendo's throne from them. Not even with the iPhone's slew of killer apps and amazing games.

"Android Will Have No Effect on Mobile Gaming for the Foreseeable Future"

Sure about that?

this is such a pointless blanket statement. To say that there will be "no effect" is to discount even a minimum addition, you also disregard any direct or indirect effect that the Android can have on mobile gaming. Just one example...Verizon does not offer the iphone, but does have a couple of phones equipped with Android. A developer can decide to go after these individuals, and in effect the snow ball on mobile gaming begin. The fact that developers have another platform to develop on is an effect in itself. Apple realizing a rise in competition and continuing to tweak the iphone is also another effect. Responsible journalism...where has it gone?

but if you buy a iphone for gaming, I feel bad for you son. It sucks. Mobile gaming sucks, period.

I buy smart phones to connect online, check news, web browse, watch vids. But not play games.

If he kept up with the android news he would know that the limitations he speaks of that are the "reason" for android not succeeding with games is already coming to an end. Google has already said that a patch will come shortly after 2.1 is released that will let apps install to the removable memory and no longer be limited to internal storage.

Android OS pwns the iphone OS as it currently stands
