    "Atari over the next six months will blow your socks off. Expect old classics with a futuristic spin.” - Nolan Bushnell
    Bushnell helped make Atari great back in the day, and it looks like he's ready to do it again. I don't know that he can pull it off, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what he can do!
    Mr. Bushnell also had a couple other choice comments about the industry, which you can find below...
    - (on iPhone, iPad and Android being the future of gaming) “No one over the age of 8 will be playing with their DS.”
    - “Augmented reality is so damn fun.” Augmented reality will play a huge part in future games.[/p]

    The funny thing is the 3DS does augmented reality.

    The 3DS? Pshh... It's a piece of shit compared to the AWESOMENESS OF THE IPAD!!!! [/extreme sarcasm]


    I wonder though, if he means just things like the PSP Go and stuff, without physical games. [​IMG]

    I usually try to see things through other peoples' perspectives, but this is just plain unfounded crap. [​IMG]

    Well, I hope he's wrong. I prefer my handhelds to be self-contained and not be more expensive without a 3 year contract, personally.

    I bloody hope not.
    On an android based gaming device what can you expect other than clones and reiterated classics that never made it for a reason.
    (just my stone cold opinion (: for more info - see the current Android store's games.)

    I'm going to go with this. Either Nolan's trolling, or he's a damn moron.

    The only cool think about gaming on iPod, is that people don't think you are some kind of computer geek. [​IMG]

    Bring your DS to school and people think you are one. [​IMG]

    hey, people have always been like that since forever. besides, those iThingies aren't even gaming devices per se. they can do games, but that doesn't mean they're dedicated hardware for games.

    I'm over 8. I have an iPod Touch and DSi. I play the DSi a LOT more than I play my iTouch.

    Um...no. That is not what a "successful troll" is.
