BioWare game developer interested in Apple’s iPhone

“We managed to corner BioWare co-CEOs Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk this morning for a conversation on a number of topics,” Patrick Klepek reports for MTV Multiplayer.

“Zeschuk on whether BioWare is interested in working on the iPhone, ‘We look at every platform that comes along. Obviously, something that’s as big a cultural and technical success as the iPhone is something you really got to take a close look at. Certainly, there’s nothing written in stone yet but we’ve got a lot of folks looking at it. It’s intriguing. I think one of the things that we’ll have to see how it shakes out is what type of consumer buys games on it and what type of experience they’re looking for. You want to always mash the consumer experience with what you’re building. We want to understand what people are going to do with it. Who knows. We’re definitely looking at every platform,'” Klepek reports.

  1. You’re looking at it? What is there to look at? Download the SDK and see if you can make some good games or not. It took other major developers a week or two to find the answer was yes.

    “We’re definitely looking at every platform.” What boilerplate bullshit.

  2. Is he mashing potatoes, or did he mean to say they will se how they can mesh what they’re building with consumer experience? Not that either makes much sense, other than non-committal double-speak…

  3. It wasn’t an interview so much as an opportunity to engage in vague assertions, pretending to be trendy, and ultimately learning nothing more than before you read the article.

    Aside from BioWare’s DRM policy so draconian on its new PC game (mass effect something?) that implies you, the consumer, is a rabid criminal bastard out to rob them of a livelihood, I don’t much care whether they are interested in the device or not.

    Afterall, the iPhone isn’t a PSP. Gaming is but just one of its aspects, and uses.
