iPad may destroy indie dev scene
An analysis by mobile business publication PocketGamer.biz predicts a crushing blow to the independent development scene by Apple's newest platform.
According to the publication, small developers won't be able to compete with larger companies with the resources necessary for developing titles on the device. Much like the move to HD on consoles, the larger screen and bump in processing power require more time and money for development that indies just don't have.
Editor Jon Jordan also sees cutthroat competition among casual browser-based games. "There will also be massive competition from free Facebook games, thanks to the excellent web browsing characteristics of the iPad."
As for hardcore games, iPad may not even be the best platform for that as we've outlined in our own analysis.
