Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, SimCity and Spore, says "console guys" are running scared with the rise of new business models on PC and mobile devices.
"I think all the console guys are running scared," Wright told GamesIndustry.biz. "Not so much because of the hardware, but because of the business models, free-to-play and that kind of thing, have shifted underneath them."
That's not a bad thing. New business models have allowed more interesting games due to lower development costs.
"I think before the only thing people were willing to bet on were sequels; that was really the only predictable genre. Now the fact that you can do a game for an extremely low cost, put it out there and see if it gets any traction is going to encourage more diversity," he said.
