Analysis: Have tablets tapped their gaming potential?

Gaming is popular on tablet devices but developers are yet to realize the full possibilities open to them, says James Gardiner. (Android, Casual games, Dev, iPad, Tech)

What gaming potential? When the only default input method is touch it's capped itself right there. Buttons are never going to go away until they make tactile touch screens that feel like buttons, furthering my claim that buttons are going absolutely nowhere.

Like it or not gaming on tablets isn't going anywhere and will only get more popular. Don't forget gaming tablets are on the way that feature physical controls and that you can already use a Dualshock 3 with tablets running Android 3.1 and above.

Hopefully this controller catches on. Seen it sold Toys R Us today.

Even if it does these horrible grotesque pieces of plastic defeat the reason that phones are popular anyways, the dedicated handheld would take less space than that horrible cheap looking controller.. thing.

You guys can play the 4 games they have for these controllers, you can play Angry Birds Tampon Edition until your head turns blue but they will never get close to the downright cool stuff you'll find on PC, consoles and dedicated handhelds.

Obviously a pc or console would be better, but last I checked, my 52" tv + console or pc tower doesnt fit in my pocket. Thought that part went without say, but based on Smashbro's comment, guess you have talk slowly and in 1-2 sylable words only.

There is an ever growing few dozen aaa quality games on the andriod such as Bard's Tale, Dead Space, and Nova 3.
