Not sure abt the "mobile gaming not going to take over consoles part" Casual gamer may just go for mobile gaming looking now at the iphone 5 rather than buying an expensive console for playing videogames
Of-course it's invalid..... It's 'The Sun' for crying out loud.
Right now it's become very popular to hate on everything in the industry...cool new game instant hate, cool new console instant hate. I'm tired of these types of gamers...they just need to go and it's up to us who are actually here to promote the great things going on in the industry to the non-gaming community. A lot of the "press" do this hate but then the sites/or magazines hide behind the well it's just their opinion. When it comes from large outlets the average reader doesn't know any better and they just believe it. Like I said it's up to us to inform the world and shut these types of cats down on every turn.
The Sun isn't the most creable site/publication around. Take what they say with a grain of salt.
Sure phones have found a niche place in gaming just like the wii and the nintendo before it. Why? It doesn't scream luxury the same way a 24" TV doesn't scream it either. If I wanted to have some fun, I wouldn't want something really small (neither would the missus lol) I would want big luxury like most others. Entertainment comes in many forms depending on lifestyle and in our extremely busy lifestyle, phones have proved extremely useful, but there's a 'front door cap' when it comes to mobile devices, they are primarily stronger away from the abode not in it and save us carrying multiple devices or from doing without those devices that are integrated into it. I certainly won't be rushing out for an iPhone 5, I already like Android too much since departing with my iP4, plus iPhones have limited power whilst Flash Media remains popular. I welcome trying out the Wii U at EGXP, like you said, the specs aren't embarrasing for it's target market whatsoever and the tablet is a bonus, like most will accept it. Too many judge this as a 1 horse race, I'm afraid it's not quite that simple, there are too many ways to live, for that to happen, and I say each to their own. I actually read the sun when I bother picking up a paper but I would have chuckled a little reading that article, it's clearly flawed in several directions.
