So a while back I read up on Google planning to release their GES (Google Entertainment System) soon, which could eventually allow access to the Android market. Now I see Apple is gearing up for something similar with the iPad and the iOS market. Are indie devs that are building mobile games soon going to find themselves moving into the living room as well?
I'm curious what people think about this next console war that's gearing up, and the possibility that indie devs might actually get a shot at a market which has traditionally been out of reach. Do you think Google or Apple will be successful at bringing their respective markets to the living room to compete with consoles? Will the old business model of charging developers 50k a seat to develop for consoles go the way of the dinosaurs in favor of open marketplaces?
