How will the iPhone 5s 64-bit chip change mobile gaming?

One of the major announcements from Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone unveiling last week was that its new high-end model, the iPhone 5s, will sport a chipset with 64-bit capabilities. 64-bit chips have become standard on laptops and offer a lot more processing horsepower than their 32-bit counterparts. How will the new hardware change mobile gaming, one of the areas in which developers can easily exploit the newly beefed up specs? The chip could potentially pave the way for a potentially much richer gaming experience where intense graphics might otherwise drain battery life or impair performance. However, the change will likely benefit major developers and game publishers and less so independent developers, who may lack the resources and manpower to design 64-bt games.
