Apple abandons plans to launch a cheaper iPad

Published

on

Rumors have been circulating for some time that Apple might release a new iPad that is cheaper and more accessible to the market. This model will have a plastic construction and an integrated physical keyboard.

According to Mark Gurmanthe device will have a final sale price of less than $500 and will be focused primarily on direct competition with the growing Chromebook market, especially in the US.

However, according to the same source, it appears that Apple has now decided to shelve plans for this new iPad, focusing instead on the models currently on the market. Apple’s idea with this new, cheaper iPad model was to compete with the growing Chromebook market, where several US schools have started using it as a work tool – during the pandemic and even after.

For now, Apple’s plans seem to indicate that this new plastic iPad model will be delayed, and it is believed that this may have been due to the company’s failure to deliver a good price-to-feature ratio for the device compared to the Chromebook.

Apple, as always, does not comment on this idea, nor on what this device will develop.

Producer Rockstar said that he did not believe in the success of GTA

The franchise turned 25 last Monday (28)

One of the premier franchises in the history of the gaming industry, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) has not always been unanimous among game makers. In an interview given to BBC 5 to talk about the show’s 25-year history, Colin Macdonald revealed that Rockstar did not believe that the title would become and achieve such success as it is today.

GTA 2 producer McDonald says that many employees and producers working for the company at the time pointed out that the game was on the list of the most discredited games. At the time, Rockstar was working on seven different projects, and Grand Theft Auto was considered by many to be the least successful.

“Least likely to succeed, I called Grand Theft Auto. This is because in May the direction of the game was unclear. It had a lot of bugs that meant you couldn’t play for a few minutes without everything crashing,” Colin McDonald said during an interview, recalling the Rockstar days.

Bugs and problems in GTA development

All of these issues, in addition to the development he described as “problematic,” led virtually no one at Rockstar to believe in the success that the game would become. However, as development progressed, the game began to win favor with the team, who were itching to think of a sequel.

“GTA went through many different iterations and was quite a problematic development. Most of the time it was in production, it failed. By the time I got in, she was almost done and the team was very happy. They were excited to sit down, plan the right sequence, redo what they didn’t like and look forward to seeing where else they could go.”
