The hardware looks good
unfortunately, most of the time, popularity trumps quality. Anything with i on it, is gold.

Why is Sony bringing GaiKai/cloud gaming to other handhelds before the Vita smh shape up Sony, where's PC games on the Vita? do you want people to buy your hardware or what?

And there you have it! Gaikai will enable Wikipad to play top PS3 games through streaming. I keep saying this but I'll say it again: It's no longer about the sales of hardware, it's about delivering content through SEN and PSN. For those who still get confused between those two, SEN is the entire network, while PSN is one part of that network.

Dude, I've been saying that Sony bought Gaikai so they wouldn't have to invest so much money into hardware, and actually have the PS brand on every device via cloud gaming. Fans don't want to hear that because they're so used to having a console and don't want any other console but PS, but the reality is that gaming is moving towards the cloud. Well I agree with you!

Looks cool. So will you be able to play all PS3 games on this? I like my Vita but they are rolling out a little slow on the crossplay so maybe this thing will crush.
BLACKBIBLE  +   949d ago
From what the CEO stated it seems very likely that we will be able to play PS3 via this pad
GribbleGrunger  +   949d ago
They'll likely be older PS3 games. The last thing Sony want is for someone to buy this instead of the PS3. They'll want the best of both worlds.

wow, amazing how it looks a lot like a Wii U pad..
GribbleGrunger  +   949d ago
So basically anything with a screen and controls either side looks like a Wiiu? What do you expect them to do, put the joystick in the centre of the screen?

Dude...... when is this on sale ?
CommonSenseGamer  +   949d ago
With a device like this on the market there is now no reason for me to get a Vita. Sure the Vita has some great exclusives but I also have a thirst for apps and better media support. If it sells then I can easily see bigger development houses throwing their support at it.

Biggest concern is will it sell enough units fast enough. Samsung and Apple basically have the tablet market cornered and they could introduce a similar device for their respective platforms.
