I find it funny how Sony has flip flopped.

Back in 2010, one of the points of the Marcus psp commercials was to mention how cell phone games were just weak phone apps that weren't really worth playing. I'd say most of the dedicated gaming community agreed with them. Hell, they weren't the only ones. Nintendo agreed too. I think Reggie even mentioned that they didn't want "garage hobby developers" putting games on their systems. (Though he may have been referring to people who make $0.99 garbage like geometry wars, battle nun, and other 1/10 games on the iPhone/android..)

Fast forward to today and, as we can see, neither Sony nor anyone else in the industry has anything negative to say about the smart phone platform market. Sony has even tried to embrace it. I guess this kind of stuff just happens often in business though.

It doesnt mean that they were wrong about cell phone games not being worthy.

The only reason the mobile gaming business is so successful is because literally everyone and their frickin grandmother has a smart/cell phone or tablet computer these days. The games alone arent good enough to be that successful if they released strictly of dedicated handhelds.

I want to say this is true. The majority of smart phone/tablet games are either bad or don't intend to keep someone entertained for most than fifteen minutes. Save for about a handful of games or so, most of them don't receive any attention either. However, seeing what the tegra 4 chip can do, the potential for more quality games is definitely there. At least in the visuals department anyway.

I'm talking about geometry wars on the iOS. It's unplayable. Not in the sense that it's so bad I don't want to play it. The game crashes on startup. It's been like this for over a year.
