Rein: Triple-A will go portable
Mark Rein, vice-president and co-founder of Epic Games has said that he believes in triple-A titles and that they will eventually find their way onto mobile platforms.
Speaking at GameHorizon in Gateshead, Rein said that devices like the iPad and the iPhone were platforms of the future.
Rein told a question and answer session: "I'm a big proponent of triple-A games. Triple-A isn't going away, it's going everywhere. As the quality of the games go up, the cost of the games go up, you're going to have to monetise them better."
He added: "I'd rather sell 10 million games at $25 and have a chance to sell DLC than 5 million at $50 on a disc that gets traded around. I think it'll change, and it'll change for the benefit of the customers. We're definitely going to experiment with micro-transcations and lower-price games."
Whether or not that experiment will extend to Gears of War 3, we will find out next April.
