Apple CEO Time Cook has told All Things Digital that he believes Apple is already firmly in the gaming space and the company will continue to get much bigger within the gaming sector. Cook claims that he’s not particularly interested in the current traditional console business, and would rather bring something new to the table.
What about the gaming space. You’ve sort of fallen into being a big player in the gaming space. Do you see that as something?
“I view that we are in gaming now in a fairly big way. One of the reasons people buy an iPod touch is gaming. Some buy it for music. I realize that is not the big screen you are talking about. Gaming has kind of evolved a bit. More people play on portable devices. Where we might go in the future, we’ll see. Customers love games.”
“I’m not interested in being in the console business in what is thought of as traditional gaming.”
“Apple is a big player today and things in the future will only make that bigger.”
But what about the TV?
“I think it could be interesting.”
