A new report by Game Developer Research reveals that the number of developers working on games for the iPhone continues to rise, roughly doubling in number from last year. At the same time, the amount of work done on games for Nintendo's Wii dropped significantly: "Just over 70 percent of developers said they were developing at least one game for PC or Mac (including browser and social games), rising slightly from last year; 41 percent reported working on console games. Within that latter group, Xbox 360 was the most popular system with 69 percent of console developers targeting it, followed by 61 percent for PlayStation 3. While those console figures stayed within a few percent of last year's results, the change in Wii adoption was much more significant: reported developer support for the system dropped from 42 percent to 30 percent of console developers, supporting numerous publishers' claims of a recent softening of the Wii market."
I'm wanting to get away from it as well. I'm good at it, been doing it for a long time - but I'm sick of it. At this point I have no idea where to go though. I recently started taking university courses again - going to see where that leads me.
And this guy writes science fiction? Geez - how short sighted of him. Libraries are neat. I have fond memories of them from my youth. But the Internet is awesome.
