Apple is a company whose name has graced the lips of many technophiles. Indeed, there are countless people who would swear by Apple products. Who could ignore the craze that they started with the iPod? How about the iPhone? Not to mention the constant stream of new computing machines that are released in the market?
But have you ever thought of Apple being part of the gaming world? It is true that mobile gaming has already felt the influence of Apple. After all, a lot of mobile games can be played on the iPhone and the iPod Touch. In fact, a lot of what people download on a regular basis include mobile games.
The rumor that has been circulating is somewhat of a different nature, however. Someone has released news that Apple is out to get its hands on Electronic Arts, the second biggest game development company today. EA is known to gamers for bringing forth games such as the Madden Franchise, Need For Speed, Skate, Fight Night, and many more. There is no doubt about it, EA is big fish in the gaming world.
Now why in the world would Apple want to buy EA, aside from the fact that it is BIG? It seems that Apple has already started to move in on the gaming industry. In the recent weeks, they have hired a major Xbox strategist – luring him away from the other tech giant.
There are so many possibilities here, the least of which is that Apple will start developing games. Ever thought of an Apple gaming console?
