When you look at the simple form of the iPhone resting in the palm of your hand, you can?t help but wonder what I mean when I talk about this convenient little ?smarty? changing the face of gaming. So let?s break it down. The iPhone is a highly convenient and efficient smartphone that makes it very easy for people to connect with the world. Anyone with a halfway decent wireless connection (personally, I get mine from www.clearwirelessinternet4g.com) can easily access their email, download songs, browse apps or even purchase high quality games.
What this ultimately means is that people with smartphones can easily download what are now comparably incredible games for much lower prices from third party developers. It also means that people can enjoy all the portability and all the access to a wide variety of gaming experiences without having to buy the systems of the mainstream game companies ? Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony ? and this is how the iPhone has changed the face of gaming. While lots of money is made on the individual sale of games, most of the money being made in the game industry is through the sale of consoles. Well, why would any smartphone user need to splurge hundreds of additional dollars on a gaming system when they could download hundreds of games for even less?
Even now, game companies have had to react to the connectivity and usability that only the iPhone can provide. Nintendo recently unveiled its Wii-U console which is basically a home entertainment system with its own screen you can carry around, and Sony is still putting the finishing touches on their latest handhelds. Game companies now know that they can?t goad you into buying their systems to play their games when you can find games just as good on the iPhone at a fraction of the cost. It will be interesting to see how gaming changes even more in the coming decades, but few can deny the iPhone?s influence.
