No, I think he is saying that the market is saturated as is, so it needs a little thinning out. The fact that every developer that hits the app store thinks they are somehow going to make money is unrealistic. I can tell you firsthand having worked for several app developing companies (both in game development and other categories) that this is a unrealistic mindset. If big companies that do this as a business know it is a risky environment, one would assume that a independent developer would as well.
The problem currently is that we have a California gold rush mentality happening on the app store, in which every developer with an app thinks they can use the same business model (IAP) and be successful with it. The problem is that this model does not work with all game types and when applied poorly can feel to lessen the game experience by creating artificial hurdles and pacing limitations (among other things). There is a fine line to walk between truly addictive gameplay and that compulsory feel to buy IAP and, well, not.
