2008 saw Apple prove its worth as a competitor in the handheld console market dominated by Sony and Nintendo. PC Advisor has rounded up the things both gaming giants could learn from Apple.
And by implication Microsoft can learn nothing from Apple? I thought that was where the look of Vista came from...
MS doesn't learn from Apple, they STEAL it :)
Microsoft doesn't learn anything. All they do is steal from other people & create their own mediocre version of it. The only thing that Microsoft can really call their own is the ability to make everything have a high failure rate.
They should learn to over price they're products to then I guess. Apple does this stuff because parts and production are nowhere near the price they mark it up too. Nintendo and Sony keep your business the way it is cause in the end this recession will get the best of Mapple I mean Apple
Apple has the highest customer satisfaction... you got what you paid for... you think Nintendo Wii expensive to make?? old tech sell the same price as PS2 7 years ago...
My response exactly. It proved it could produce a decent distraction worth buying some $0.99 games for. Not quite the same level as what Nintendo or Sony are putting out there.
So telling Sony to stay expensive because of brand alone to sell on image alone along with all the bells and whistles. Interesting in deed... It sure will Microsft sell more consoles! :) ?
*yawn* Another article attempting to compare the iPhone, which is a phone/media device to 2 actual game consoles, 1 of which has media capabilities. And that one, being the PSP isn't locked down with iTunes so I can drag and drop music simply from my PC's "My Computer" file browser window. I've tried out a few games on a friend's iPhone and while the games themselves weren't necessarily bad, I found the whole touch concept completely baffling. I've been playing games with a D-pad and control buttons for 20 years. It just doesn't feel right. Also the iPhone was designed as a phone/media device with games as an afterthought. The PSP was designed primarily for gaming with media playback as an afterthought. The PSP wins in every category for me. The DS also wins out because it does nothing BUT games.
