What will a video games industry run by Apple look like?

Mark Hattersley | Nov. 30, 2012
Apple more or less owns the video game industry already with the iPhone, and the iPad mini is likely to take over from traditional gaming devices; and that's before the television arrives. What will an Apple controlled video games market look like?

There's a chance that Android itself will take its relative success in the phone handset world, and push it out towards tablets and further to television. Google and Amazon's efforts this holiday period show that the tablet race isn't done yet; and there's no reason to suggest that a scrap over the television screen won't be less competitive.

But given Apple's success in the mobile and tablet space, we'd bet on it taking the television at some point. The television remains the digital hearth, the focal point which the family sits around. Playing games either on the television, or on the second screen; or a mixture of both. And when Apple owns that it's place at the centre of our entertainment will be complete.
