Apple Not Going to Consoles, Cook Says

All I can say is, "Good." Apple doesn't need to go into a market they can't make waves in. They are much better as a computer and consumer electronics company - not a gaming or social media company. Despite that, Apple seems to have more of a notion in mobile gaming, gearing it's iOS platform rather nicely to performance enhancements of which combat and simulation games can nicely take advantage. Recently Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, was quoted at the D10 conference as saying:

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. But Apple is a big player today and things in the future will only make that bigger.

Say what you will about the company, the bottom line is that Apple is a mobile company - iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and MacBook Air. Why would you want a company which does something so well literally ground itself in something as 80's as a gaming console?
