    Yes, Apple is the “enemy of the future” when it comes to gaming. Or more like the innovator of the future, like always. The ecosystem they’ve developed that is fostering a “race-to-the-bottom” has also allowed the concept of apps as primary methods of interfacing with a phone. And because of this, other systems will follow. Heck, we already see the app idea developing in consoles like the XBox and its Kinect apps. It is no wonder that Sony posts this ad (via MacRumors, via ArsTechnica):

    Ars Technica highlights a new television commercial for the Sony PSP in which a character mocks the mobile gaming experience on a smartphone that looks suspiciously like an iPhone. In addition to claiming a superior experience on the PSP, Sony also touts $9.99 pricing for some of its older games, closer to the App Store typical high-end gaming price point than that of traditional PSP games.
