Need to Focus on Mobile Games

Most of the user community is migrating to pad and phone devices. Recently I saw a stat that said the internet is being accessed by mobile devices at a much greater rate then conventional PCs. We're a moving world. I spend very little time in front of a fixed PC. I know it's easier to develop these games for those devices but, I really think your future is in the mobile device. That being said, please do not stop creating your games in the "I" platform. Also, any idea when, if ever, you plan on introducing either hockey or football to the mobile platform. I really think the demand would be tremendous.

I do agree to a point with this. By no means are computer games going away but many (like me) don't like playing them nearly as much as iPhone games. There are certainly limits to what you can do with mobile games but I would love to see an iFHM and eventually iBTS soon enough. Keep up the great work and I can't wait til iOOTP 2014

Thanks for the thoughts, guys. We definitely want to produce mobile versions of FHM and BTS Football eventually, but right now there's no timetable for them.

We're certainly aware that tablets are becoming more and more important. As Steve Jobs said a few years ago (paraphrasing): PCs are like trucks: You use them for the heavy lifting. I know I love using my iPad to watch stuff on Netflix (just wish the 1016 errors would calm down), HBO Go, Amazon, and other streaming sources, as well as play iOOTP, browse the web, etc.

I told someone not too long ago that once upon a time it was great to sit in bed with a laptop. Now it feels like you have a refrigerator on your lap, compared to an iPad.

So, we'll keep our eye on trends and see how it goes. Should be an interesting next few years for everyone in the software biz.

Let me just start up the Anti Handheld Device Campaign

I understand from a business point of view, and I am looking forward to an updated iOOTP but PC FOREVER!
