Apple Targets the Video-Game Industry

The following video is from The Motley Fool's weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill talks all things tech with Fool analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) has included a feature in its new iOS 7 mobile operating system that supports external game controller hardware, essentially turning an iPhone into a portable gaming device with far more user interactivity than just touch. Could this prove to be a big threat to a company like Nintendo, whose DS portable system sold in the area of 150 million units? In this segment, Lyons and Eric discuss what would need to happen for this to become a major threat to dedicated mobile gaming devices.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. Eric is prepared to fill you in on reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.

The relevant video segment can be found between 3:44 and 6:45.
