I worked for XBOX
I spent my entire childhood making games. I can crank them out.

Is there any point in making games for iPhone?

I don't plan to pay my mortgage with this:)
But I am going to make games.
With titles like Harry Potter and AoE 3 on the marquee, is there any point in trying to make games as the little guy?
How can anyone find my games amidst the river of desirable titles?
How do unknowns break thru into iPhone app awareness. Examples? iPad?

Do I set my acceptable price of my game?
Will I only get friends getting my games out of pity ?
How did Sierra get going in the 80s ?
