The future of gaming

Mobile and console games cross paths.

I have been playing video games ever since Atari released its first game console in 1977, and in the almost 40 years since, I've never seen anything change the landscape of the gaming world like the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. With Apple's mobile operating system, suddenly you could play console-caliber games anywhere, against competitors from around the world.

As technology is improving with Metal, iOS 8's new programming system, as well as with breakthrough accessories from top gaming companies, I see a future where console and mobile games will blend until they're almost indistinguishable. Mobile gamers will have access to all the best console games and will have the same access to professional gaming competitions.
