“I’ll tell you one thing,” said a UK journalist at the end of last year’s E3. “The mobile’s dream’s well and truly over.”
It really did seem like it. For endless years, the mobile games industry had been banging the drum of promised success, but two factors had always prevented the supposed explosion from finally happening. Firstly, the games were either rubbish or completely misappropriated to the casual audience. Secondly, the carriers didn’t take gaming seriously, and delivery methods and presentation across a bewildering swathe of handsets was both stupidly flawed and obviously impractical.
With no central focus to last year’s E3 for the first time in its history, there was no way for the believers to get their products in front of journalists by default and the awful truth emerged: no one cared. All that VC was looking very ill-advised indeed.
The situation for mobile gaming, however, could well have changed dramatically last week.
