Want to Play Skyrim on a Tablet? There’s an App for That

Kotaku: This past week at CES, Nvidia and ASUS teamed up to show off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim running on ASUS' latest and greatest tablet - the Transformer Prime.

Now move some fruit please.

ok, i got a question on this then....."if pc's are so powerful (rolls eyes) how can a tablet run a game like this?!? Or a tablets that powerful?!" EDIT....@frelyler. "Oooooo.....i see, thank you" so is cloud gaming is doing all the work! hummm.....then cloud gaming also looks like it will be the future for some pc's, and whatever the new ps4 and xbox will come out with. "and thanks again"

Well, the tablet is using something akin to onlive. The game is on a cloud, which is being run by one of those powerful pcs you rolled your eyes at. It is still very cool, but the tablet itself is not doing the actual work.

What's with the random quotation marks, especially at the end, where you seem to thank someone sarcastically for answering your question?

"You're an idiot"

frelyler2041d ago

So the disagrees are for the facts stated in the article itself, fucking morons. Why are there disagree buttons again. I just have to laugh.

I can play Skyrim on my Iphone using the app Splashtop (there are many others just like it.) Instant access to my home pc over 3g or wifi. I just need a bluetooth mouse and keyboard and I will be good to go :P

SnotyTheRocket2041d ago

Really? From an IPHONE? I'd laugh if I was a guy playing with a random controller in the mall, and looking at his iPhone.

BlackjackCF2042d ago

Oh my.

Yet another reason why I should buy all the tablets with...

...all the money I don't have.

The controls are going to be horrible on that thing.

You can use a 360 controller

Even if you can use a controller with it, it just doesn't sound so wise to play a game on a tablet to me.

Let's assume that you can connect a wireless controller to the device. When it is the case, the tablet itself will only be used as a monitor. Think about it, you'll be playing a game on a monitor that is horrendously small and low-res. Why would you do that? I'd probably just grab my PS3/Xbox360 controller instead and play the game on my gorgeous Full HD LED screen.

Yeah I know regular consoles are not portable and stuff but if you're considering the fact that you may want to carry a gaming device with you when you travel, why wouldn't you just stick with the Vita instead? The screen is smaller but at least you don't have to carry an external controller with you.

Tablets are not meant to play games with, they're for accessing to internet easily any time you want to. Only games you can enjoy playing on a tablet device are touch games like Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja.

You have to plug in a usb gamepad or mouse
There's no touch input for games

I don't see myself playing High-end games on a touch screen tablet... No thank you; not even with external accessories.

It is either, play it on a Console or on a PC (For me).

End of story.

Wuuuuuuut. That's pretty sick.

Edit: After watching the video on how it's done, I thought it was like, a skyrim app. But it's just the tablet connected to the pc over a cloud. Less impressed kinda D:

BillytheAlien2042d ago

I would find it hillarious if it actually played better on there then it does on my PS3 :)

young juice2042d ago

whats sucks is that it actually DOES run better on that thing than it does on my ps3.

i feel like im going through a really good flip book with most of the pages stuck together
