"With an industry leader like themselves leading the drive for powerful portable devices and console quality games it’s more than likely EA will realize their dreams of seeing gamers play Madden 18 on the bus."

Yeah, i don't think i would root for them being an industry leader.

It doesn't matter if tablets or cell phones are MORE powerful than consoles. People play on consoles because that is their preference.

Scatpants950d ago

But what if there was a console that was really thin that had a screen on it.

@Scatpants

No matter how powerful a tablet they make, they can make a console that is much more powerful for the same money, or just as powerful for much less.

The tablet form factor will always have power, size and heat restrictions as limiting factors.

Console Quality Tablets won't matter without Console quality controls.

* Tablet controls are worse than the Atari joystick from the 80's.

Tablets bring graphics forward into the future but they leave controls behind in the past.

Are you watching or playing?

Just throwing this out there but you can use external mods which allow duelshock controllers on tablets.

Also nividea sheild is a combo of this.

"Games Predict Console Quality Tablets In 2018"

I predict next gen consoles will be out a few years after. Then tablets will play catch up again.

DarkOcelet950d ago

I don't think Tablet gaming is that good. The touch controls is not as awesome as a controller. Yes, the casual market that don't game much love it but for us Hardcore gamers that plays on PC and consoles. We will never accept it.

The_Infected950d ago

I completely agree. I'll never play tablet or phone games. I will however like Project Morpheus and Hololens.

RG_Dubz950d ago

I predict you'll be very wrong, because the Next-Gen consoles will be released in Q4 2018.

I also predict the Next-Gen consoles will be the last consoles with PS Now (already on Samsung Smart TV's) PSN, XBox Live all becoming apps on Smart TV's, Phones, Tablets and PC thereafter.. as will Nintendo (being the last of the big 3 to do so)

Not that that's how I want it to go, quite opposite actually.. but it is the unfortunate future of gaming.

Clunkyd950d ago

At the rate that ISPs are progressing, Nope, won't happen.
There's definitely at least another console generation coming.

zidane1341950d ago

There's no way in hell that's going to happen in 3 years. After the crybaby storm everyone did over the initial Xbox one plans, there's no way they are going to try that again by then. If there original plans panned out then your probably right but nooo people had to complain.

@ Clunkyd

What 3rd World Country do you live in?

@ Zidane

I was saying AFTER the Next-Gen consoles.. Which will just be launching in 3 years..

getrektedmate950d ago

Tablets will never become "console quality." Are you drunk again EA? Only trash talk comes out of ubEAsofts mouth.

Never write never. Computers use to be a whole room, not it's fits in your pocket and hand and it's hundred, if not thousands of times more powerful and efficient.

Cell phone has more computer power than all of NASA back in 1969, when it placed two astronauts on the moon.

"Multiple IBM System/360 Model 75 mainframe computers, costing up to $3.5 million apiece all the while occupying tremendous amounts of space, were operational at NASA at the time. Each could perform several hundred thousand addition operations per second, and their total memory capacity was in the megabyte range. As for the 70-pound Apollo Guidance Computer, which the Apollo 11 Command Module had on board, it was a machine that had 64 kilobytes of memory and operated at 0.043MHz. In comparison, an iPhone 5s, which you can easily fit into any pocket, has a CPU running at speeds of up to 1.3GHz – enough to enable the execution of millions of calculations each second. And the iPhone's 1GB of RAM should well suffice for storing the 6 megabytes of code that NASA developed to monitor the status of its spacecrafts and astronauts in 1969."

It's all about making technoly smaller, more powerful and eventually invisible. Just imagine what we'll do with tablets...it excites me actually.

When humans, technology and profit are involved, it creates a perfect synergy making everything possible. It's all about incentives....And tech/science improves every single year.

What's most likely to occur initially is that a tablet will be able to substitute a console's space yet still be mobile afterwards.

New Tegra chip is more powerful than the 360/ps3.
The difference is anybody wanting to make serious money would never has a game just running on the most powerful chip set, a bit like pc gaming.

AKissFromDaddy950d ago

iOS and Android are Operating Systems, not hardware specs.

BitbyDeath950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

Too bad they aren't talking about gaming quality. Would be great to see the games with the quality of PS1 games. Like a new theme park or theme hospital.
