Submission + - Angry Birds Exec: Console Games Are Dying (ibtimes.com) 3

RedEaredSlider writes: Angry Birds marketing lead Peter Vesterbacka went on the offensive today against his console counterparts, arguing that the model pursued by companies like Nintendo is "dying."

In a panel discussion at the South by Southwest Interact vice conference in Austin, Texas Vesterbacka said that innovation wasn't coming from large development firms like EA and Ubisoft, but from smaller, more nimble developers like his own.

Vesterbacka also pointed to the major concern over the price model for console games. Compared to mobile titles like Angry Birds that run for 99 cents, games on large consoles hover around fifty dollars. Still, the executive did admit that the business model for mobile games had yet to be completely figured out.
