Exec blasts claims that smartphones and tablets will kill the console games industry.
Speaking to sister title MCV, Xbox brainchild Seamus Blackley waives off predictions that mobiles will become the preferred gaming method ahead of consoles.
Blackley now works in the mobile space, developing games at Innovative Leisure, and says, "Any business model will work as long as you have the content.
"You can now make mobile games that are really compelling. It no longer requires a high cost device. But there’s nothing like playing Uncharted on a console in front of your TV.
"It is not fair to compare console to mobile, there are different audiences. And when it is the same audience, you will find a lot of them play with their mobile device during the day and a console when they get home."
As Blackley said, mobiles and consoles are two different beasts entirely.
