I appreciate the detailed argument, but this is sort of written as though the author isn't sure what makes console games special. There's a reason the OUYA took kickstarter by storm and then totally fell off once people got their hands on it: Smartphone games are fun, but they don't offer anywhere near the experience that proper console games offer. Yes, Infinity Blade looks amazing, but it also features what is essentially a 2- or 3-button control scheme. There has yet to be a smartphone game that offers anywhere near the depth of something like a full console shooter, not to mention titles like The Last of Us, Dead Rising, etc. Apple is creating a new market, not threatening the Xbox or PlayStation.

Mike, I agree 100% that console games are ‘special’ in a way that iOS games so far are not... But I would argue the largest bottleneck has been the control scheme.

With a real tactile controller, what's to prevent games with truly rich interaction, that are as nuanced as modern console games?

+1 this if you ever even use Google+ anymore. I'm trying to decide if it makes sense to even bother updating this. <3

Rarely, but I check it out every now and then. I do use it as my photo backup, though.
