Pearls before swine
Like it or not, gaming on mobile devices has gained some traction in recent years. While the experience on offer may be of a different quality, titles like Angry Birds have proved massively popular to casual players.
In the press today a developer at Rovio (the studio behind Angry Birds) made a slanting comment aimed at Nintendo:
It's interesting to see people like Nintendo saying smartphones are destroying the games industry. Of course, if I was trying to sell $49 pieces of plastic to people then yes, I'd be worried too.
Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio
Despite these less than stellar words, Rovio's newest game Angry Birds Star Wars will be hitting Wii U and Wii consoles, as well as the 3DS handheld - and not as a downloadable title either:
