Kenichi Nishi of developer Route 24 thinks the iPad has "unlimited potential" as a gaming machine.
Hmm...We'll see. Right now I'm more interested in my gaming fix from Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft.
The iPad indeed has great potential
I'm not so sure. It really depends on the development support.
lol, what are we gonna play? itouch games v2? i call that hardly better, more like were going to milk the casual market even harder.
Unlimited potential? OK, how do you expand storage? USB? SD Card? How about adding a camera and mic? Letting Apple unveil before all of the superior competitors was a good move.
I'm not sure about that potential. A 5 year old handheld that's called the PSP outperforms it both in graphics and gameplay.
Unless you can plug a controller in then it has no potential for me. Touch screen & Tilt = basic games Oh and the scrabble demo, yes it looks cool that you can have the Ipad as a board and each person playing having their words showing on their individual Iphones... But think about that for a second, would you really spend probably almost 1k in equipment to play scrabble. It is the most pointless idea ever- Play for free online or buy a board for a few $.
Sure it will, Steve...
It dosnt even have as much potential as the existing handheld gaming devices and it costs a sh1tload more than they do. Seriously no gamer is going to be able to justify the cost of this just to use as a games platform.
It'll (and iphone/touch) get much better when OS 4.0 arrives with their new gaming feature. Matchmaking, achievements, friends, the works.
Unlimited potential...with no Flash. xD
Or multi-tasking out of the box.
how do we add buttons?
Remember when the Xbox launched, and the Microsoft talking heads were saying stuff like, "Since the XBox has a hard drive, as opposed to those other consoles, you're going to see infinitely large levels on the XBox." Little did I know all those PC games I'd been playing for years had infinitely large levels thanks to the hard drive. The crazy hype machine in games these days is starting to approach sports drafts. Actual exchange: "This kid's got unlimited upside." "EXTREMELY unlimited upside."
devises do we need? I have been happy with the consoles for some time now, I mean it when I say I have no interest yet in a Xbox-720 or a PS4, I am liking what they are achieving, when the new consoles do arrive I want the RPG elements to improve, or more MMO's, other than that I am happy with them as they are now.
is always a good thing.
Options are great, but if I have a choice between a regular car and a car without a steering wheel, guess which one I am going to choose, especially when the one with the steering cost less?
-> Gamer says touch as a primary (and only) control method is a complete POS. I don't care what anyone says, there are some good games on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch, but very, very few of them are worth playing cause of the touch control.
and so does a stick and some imagination...they can keep trying to hide the fact that the iPad is an overgrown iTouch. Only ones theyre fooling are the Apple fanboys.
CORRECTION: Dev Says iPad Has 'Unlimited Potential' As Gaming Machine, unless you want to play with anything but touch. Say buttons near it and iPad explode, like a house of cards. Now that's more like it.
Then again ................ not
Pfff, the ipad has great potential in gaming? Are you nuts? IT CANT EVEN FRICKIN MULTITASK! What a failure of a device
The iPhone OS 4 is bringing multitasking to the iPad and the last 2 iPhone gen's. But still, the iPad is not a gaming device. It uses the same f*cking processors as the iPhone. And they are making a ridiculous markup on the hardware cost.
