Y'know, it's a funny thing. At the moment I can't help but get the feeling that gamers are crying out for more hardcore titles on mobile and the iPhone. Just look at this supposed new premium section of the App Store that's been doing the rumour rounds this week.
The thing is, if some more traditionally hardcore titles do arrive on the iPhone, people will just complain about how they don't really suit the platform, the devs really can't win. Maybe it's not such a bad thing if handheld gaming sticks to what it's good at. The problem is that there is a lack of innovation within genres (particularly the puzzle genre), the quantity of genres has nothing to do with it.
