Among the more demanding hardware-wise games and the more lenient indie games a new market is being born.
With hardware and software, with processors like core i3 and i5, and windows 7 and 8 coming, most older software (games for example) for older systems isn't working anymore, or only barely work, which leaves the less powerful systems with gaps in their leisurely offer.
A person can argue that indie games can take the spot available, still most indie games are trying their own thing and aren't looking to occupy the place of more musculated productions.
So what of it?
I think a new market of less demanding, probably less expensive games is being born of war between the old software and new hardware.
