Gamesindustry.biz had an interview with Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft, about the future of gaming. Guillemot believes set-top boxes will become games platforms in the future, and he also believes Apple will attempt to become a bigger player in the games business.
"What I wanted to say is that because you saw new interfaces with the Wii, with the Wiimote, and also with the DS, with the stylus, what we see for the future is that there will be also big announcements in interfaces. And it will not only happen on consoles, but it will also happen on those TV boxes as well. So this will help in fact games to be played on those boxes on top of the consoles that are available."
He also stated his belief that Apple will become a bigger player in the games business, over and above the iPhone platform.
"And on top we consider that there is a new entrant in the business, which is Apple with the iPhone, and we don't think they will stop there."
