The biggest gaming announcement this week

For the first time since Apple opened the App Store in 2008, it’s explicitly opening up iOS to hardware game controllers, enabling console-like gaming experiences to be powered by its mobile devices. The implications are big: game developers will be able to target all controllers that conform to Apple’s standard, removing a lot of the friction that has so far stopped add-on hardware controllers from gaining popularity.

Who needs E3?  This might just kill the PS Vita and 3DS, both of which are already on life support.
