Gabe, shut up and make Ep3 or HL3. Until then, your words are worthless.

I think he's right. I really wish valve would double down and get steam on a phone os as well. Preferably Android. Using steam cloud for saves would mean I could jump between platforms easily for certain types of games. The xperia play (hopefully series) should make even more games playable on a phone.

I wouldn't class a PC as an open platform because they are all different, more like and xbox for instance without microsfot attached it would a be a platform that anyone can program games for without having to worry about hardware conflicts etc...

He doesn't actually say it will be a console, just applying the console model So It could be a closed system that allows multiple functions such as video playback, some gaming, some web browsing etc...

Sounds like an iPad to me.

I'd rather Apple sort the sh*t out they already have before making a console. Trying to watch the Avengers trailer on Apple's website was like sticking pins in my eyes, before I found it on Youtube. Seriously, why is QT/safari such a pile of crap?

And as someone made reference to, the Pippin, was such a HUGE success.....

I'd say that pre jobs that might have been a possibility but post jobs they are far less likely to take risks in new markets.

"Valve founder Gabe Newell reckons Apple will move to redefine the games console market."

It damn welll needs someone to do so.

M$ and Sony are quite content to continue perveying 6/7 year old tech for the next 3/4 years. That castrates game developement for the PC. And given just your average rig is already atleast 5 years ahead of consoles in terms of the capabilities of both the cpu and the gpu that is only going to get so much worse.

If it takes the marketeers of the teacher's favourite fruit to do so ...then so be it.

my thoughts exactly. it's really a shame.

but then, who knows, Apple might be looking to make a splash with Apple TV 3.


to those who are putting Apple and Open in one sentence. read the original article more closely.

Because QT/Safari on windows doesn't make Apple any money.

Why is everyone jumping in and saying that post-Jobs apple won't take any risks? Let's be clear on this - Apple have made NO major new announcements since Jobs' death. It's been less than a week since he died. Let's wait and see what Apple actually do before we all shout doom and gloom, eh?

Agreed. There's a video floating around of a car game being played on iphones and ipads that then displayed onto a tv (I can't link to the video from work). With stuff like that I think they could really hurt Nintendo in the more casual space. It would be some time (I suspect) until they could challenge Microsoft or Sony's consoles for their audience.

If they just released an official controller for the Iphone/pods I think they would seriously hurt 3DS and Vita sales. Although the Icontrolpad is gaining more supports every day so maybe they won't have to.

Android TV has the similar potential but no one markets like Apple... unfortunately.

If an apple console runs on the Apple OS as it is now then there is no way in hell I'm using it, my ipod tends to crash at least once a day due to safari being a piece of ****.
