Ubisoft CEO predicts new Apple gaming hardware

“Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot predicted today not just a coming generation of consoles and a gaming revolution in set-top boxes, but a bigger gaming play by Apple than just the iPhone [and iPod touch],” Stephen Totilo reports for Kotaku.

“‘You saw new interfaces with the Wiimote and also with the DS with the stylus,’ Guillemot said. ‘What we see for the future is they will also be big announcement in interfaces. It will not only happen in consoles but also happen on those TV boxes as well,'” Totilo reports. “‘There’s also a new entrant in the business,’ he said, after riffing off the looming gaming potential of set-top boxes. ‘[That entrant is] Apple, with the iPhone. And we don’t think they will stop there,'” Totilo reports.

“Guillemot made the comments about Apple during Ubisoft’s conference call to report the company’s finanicial results for its fiscal year ended in March,” Totilo reports.
