Android is more open source. It runs on more devices, its not used by Hipsters and its not hypnotised thousands of its users to buy the latest thing that is just the same thing with a higher number

Anyway,
Wonder what his new game is going to be?
Sorry Prin, but the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a higher number than the S3, it's not just Apple that deal in higher numbers that punters flock to. Anyway, the big question is, will Matthew Smith actually finish writing this game?

Oh look.. Apple sheep on RG forum...

Anyway, is there anyone in gaming who has a higher regard after releasing one good game and one shocker?

Which happens on other Android devices too, I just named one example. There are always newer versions of what's gone before, that's the Tech game for you.

Before Apple came along publishers in the mobile sector gave developers a 10/90 split - the 10% went to the developer.

I take it Matt is only going to consult on the design and they're not going to trust him to stay focused and deliver a whole game? Given how unreliable he's proven to be just for interviews and events, it would seem foolish to do otherwise.

I can't even see him having that much input. It's a nice bit of PR that will appeal to a certain gaming niche with maybe some extra mileage to be gained for product branding purposes, beyond that I just can't see Smith being involved in any significant way.
