Josh Yguado, President and COO of SGN, talked to Chris James at Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco 2015 about the importance of the West Coast for mobile games development.
The area is already well-established as a place for investment in technology, and as Yguado puts it, when it comes to games development, "funding always helps".
And even though the competition for funding is high thanks to an increase in developers on the West Coast, Yguado is sure that "smaller indies will be courted for acquisition."
Yguado also feels that the mobile industry won't be "cannibalistic" towards the console market, as "mobile has created a whole new industry" that is separate from the current console industry.
