An Open Letter to Apple from a Lifelong Gamer
6:00 AM | Evan Holt | 15 comments

A PC blogger (and hardcore gamer) on the popular PC file downloading site FilePlanet has posted as open letter to Apple. In the letter the writer asks Apple to "take some of that big money you're making from iTunes and shovel it into gaming".

I know it's humiliating, but for once you've got to look at what Microsoft is doing and copy it. Those guys are scared of you -- and they know that games are the one and only thing that has prevented you from hitting the Tipping Point years ago. The "Games for Windows" team is making noise at every game convention I go to. A whole division at Microsoft is devoted to developing game technology -- like DirectX or the Microsoft XNA developer's toolkit. Microsoft buys up development studios and publishes triple-A games with regularity. Microsoft knows that games are the key to getting people to adopt hardware: how is Microsoft attacking the American living room? Through a game console. How did they make sure that game console was a household name? They bought Bungie and brought Halo on board. Man, Halo was supposed to be a Mac game. They shanked you.
