Should Apple Focus More on the Gaming Market?

Video game programmer Peter Molyneux (famous for classics like Dungeon Keeper and Fable) believes that Apple should be working towards making a bigger impact in the gaming industry, Digital Spy reports.

In particular, the iPad was singled out as a gaming platform that could very well shake the market up.

"The interesting thing about the iPad is that it has done incredible things for music… but there hasn’t really been a computer game that really represents gaming on the go."

Molyneux believes Apple hasn’t taken full advantage of the iPad’s potential in the video game market. And he may just be right – when I first heard of the iPad I didn’t think much of it other than an oversized iPod touch – but it is quite the powerhouse (and portable too!). It may be a small device, powerful enough to run high definition games like Infinity Blade 1 and 2 and Mass Effect Infiltrator.

There’s definitely room for Apple to make their way into the market with more iPad exclusive games, although it’s not like Apple doesn’t have a slew of games already on its shelf, some of them having gotten quite popular (Angry Birds, anyone).

 Molyneux is currently working on Godus, a god game sim that’s apparently sort of a mash up –in a good way – of old games from his past work (Populous, Black and White). It will be developed by independent studio 22 Cans.
