Apple Hints at Joining the Gaming Industry Even On TV
Apple CEO Tom Cook spoke to All Things Digital about Apple’s involvement in the gaming industry:
What about the gaming space. You’ve sort of fallen into being a big player in the gaming space. Do you see that as something?
“I view that we are in gaming now in a fairly big way. One of the reasons people buy an iPod touch is gaming. Some buy it for music. I realize that is not the big screen you are talking about. Gaming has kind of evolved a bit. More people play on portable devices. Where we might go in the future, we’ll see. Customers love games.”
“I’m not interested in being in the console business in what is thought of as traditional gaming.”
“Apple is a big player today and things in the future will only make that bigger.”
But what about the TV?
“I think it could be interesting.”
