A wireless controller, an Android tablet, and the Green Throttle Arena app might just be the new face of console gaming -- and they might leave traditional consoles in the dust.
Definitely a neat idea. I wonder how this, Ouya, and all the other alternative stuff will shake out later this year vs. the next Xbox and PS4.
Look at the title. It doesn't say if, it doesn't say it might, it says it will. I don't care what the article says later, the headline said it first. Personally I am sick and damn tired of these idiot reporters from other failed ventures getting together and repeating the same despicable behavior that made their last outing such a monumental failure in journalism as well as having perform a complete disservice service to the gaming community. When Green Throttle disappears into obscurity I want everyone of the morons at venturebeat to link arms and jump off a damn cliff. We're sick of you, get it you imbeciles? These are the same pathetic hitmongers that were talking about phones being the death of consoles, now it's tablets. What's next, tic-tac-toe and checkers? I spoke about serving the larger community rather than their own bloated egos. SERVE THE COMMUNITY AND STOP CRAPPING ON US WITH THIS NONSENSICAL CONJECTURE AND EXERCISES IN DESPERATION THAT COVER FOR YOUR LACK OF INSIGHT OR ANYTHING RESEMBLING THE INTERESTING. ADMIT IT, YOU ARE BORING. If this pathetic example is the best you can muster then by all means let your site die already and gamers everywhere will be the better for it. You Rus McLaughlin should be ashamed. You would be better using a name like Mr Big than attaching yourself to this ridiculous excuse for a game article.
Bubbles. Now, if only we could get N4G, at the least, to stop allowing such drivel...
They will fail.
Keep moving. Nothing to see here. A games system that operates from Android will never compete with a hardcore console. Can you see a Halo, Uncharted, Cod or Mario type of game on it? A real AAA title? Never going to happen. Mobile gaming is great, but it'll never give the types of experience consoles can, even if they're upscaled to a tv.
So damn tired of people saying mobile gaming will surpass console gaming.... it will never happen
Words, Words, Words, Claims, Claims, Claims, Boasts, Boasts, and Boasts. Gameboy #1, Gameboy Color #1, Gameboy Adv. #1, DS #1, DS XL #1, and 3DS #1... I don't know who I should listen to... (Anyway, I wish Green Throttle luck, I think the market is BIG Enough to support many systems. I also think that ideas like these will shape and spur-on the Next ideas for Nintendo's Mobile and Console devices- They recently merged the 2 departments...)
Too soon to tell, but if the PS4 doesn't sell well neither we may head that way.
Great the market is already flooded enough. Now more people are making these stupid android based things as if there hasn't been enough of that popping up. Good luck competing with Ouya and Nvidia of all people.. Blows my mind the people who believe Android gaming can and should take over... Yea let's just revert gaming back another 20 years so you can play your cheap android games on your non-gaming related devices.
wow, i think Next-gen consoles (all) will struggle to beat Green Throttle arena
Hardcore gamers will stick with consoles and handhelds, and Casual gamers won't even know it exists.
Add it to the list of things that's meant to topple consoles. What I saw in the PS4 conference was a lot more impressive and that was just the beginning. Also look at this quote "But if you wanted to bring over a game like, say, Street Fighter, and you wanted two players with the original button combinations, you can do that. The console guys can now port a game over the way it was meant to be played" What does that even mean? I can't see an android version of street fighter is meant to be better than it's console counterpart let alone the netcode for online play.
