What will mobile games be like in 2010?
6. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo (may) make their mobile move
If 2009 saw Apple park its tanks on the lawns of DS and PSP, 2010 could be the year Sony and Nintendo hit back with their own full-scale moves into mobile gaming. Possibly. Nintendo has been frustratingly unwilling to consider making its own-branded handset (the PokePhone?), but there have been constant rumours that Sony was mulling a PlayStation phone – with or without Sony Ericsson’s participation.
One of those will happen in 2010. And Microsoft? Xbox executives have periodically talked about the opportunities in mobile, while Zune HD recently saw the company’s first major move into mobile gaming. That, plus a renewed push with Windows Phones, should mean something in the year ahead, even if it’s not a dedicated XboxPhone.
