When Apple say that they have the 'most popular console' or 'most popular handheld' or whatever, the reality is that that mean cack all. Nintendo got it bang on - all those 'games' do is devalue gaming as a whole. I can count the list of iOS games that I'd actually play on one hand, and even then two of those are on the PSP and one is on the DS. Apple is the most arrogant, smug company going, and whoever said that their heads are up their arses has it spot on. I don't hate Apple because they are popular, I hate Apple because their products are overpriced and woefully inferior to the competition. £1000 for a 13" laptop with a last-gen i5 and integrated graphics? f**k off. Same goes for the iPhone, which is so much worse than a modern Android/Windows phone that it's not even funny. Don't even get me started on the badly designed, badly coded POS that is iTunes - even the most basic form of Windows Media Player is better.
I'm not expecting much from the MS Press Conference tonight, but if they show even one worthwhile product then it'll be damn more than the 'LOOK AT TEH SHINY SHINY' Apple Conference.
