Apple enters game space - console and game makers worry

In a recent article written by Hiroko Tabuchi (twitter) of the New York Times, Hiroko talks about the Tokyo Game Show going on this week/weekend and how industry executives are worried about Apples push into the handheld game market with it's iPhone and newly beefed-up iPod touch.

As Able Pear Software develops several applications with several in the game space I found this article to be interesting and insightful. I didn't realize the impact the iPhone and iPod touch with it's App Store was making in the console game industry. But with games as little as .99 cents or free I can see where they would be worried about their $30.00 and up titles and declining hardware sales.
