This is completely different from what is being discussed. A native SDK is required so that one appears is not going to be a surprise. That you quoted a particularly stupid statement by Balsillie without understanding it is a particularly stupid statement is what is being discussed.
Namely you do not understand that web tools do not make for a better gaming platform and even if it did, consoles already HAVE THEM.
Maybe it's a bad quote because the guy is nearly incomprehensible, spouting random technical points and conflating completely different things.
Gee...who around here is like that?
It's like how RIM got slammed by evasive talking about how the Playbook can't "tether" without a Blackberry. Well, do you want the Steve Jobs speak? Apple will not support a wifi-only ipad to tether an iphone --- not by wifi, not by bluetooth. You can go and buy the ipad with a mifi from Verizon. You can go and jailbreak your iphone/ipad to give you the ability to tether the ipad, but then you are violating AT&T's terms of service.
Steve Jobs just said "No" when asked about tethering. That's hardly evasive at all. The rest of that stuff you just made up.
