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"
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
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.
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:
I would find it hillarious if it actually played better on there then it does on my PS3 :)
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
It's PC quality so yeah
......Technology is advancing so damn fast...... Wow in 2020 i'll probably be saying those exact words again lolz.
In 2020 technology has evolved past man and achieved world domination.
It wills, scientists predict by that time there will be a computer more powerfull than the human brain
Tablets are stupid, a damn gimmick. I mean the whole purpose of it is to use its touch screen. but its a pain in the ass for that, so might as well get a laptop.
Wait moment now this not directing at any of you personally,But once upon atime not soo long ago people said ipads not real gaming devices now everyone wants a tablet.? Hmmmmm
exactly... people in such denial/ignorance.
Who is everyone? People with money to throw around, and people who don't know any better, are the ones that get tablets for "gaming." A tablet's primary purpose is internet browsing and such, things that are best done with a touch screen. And they're an evolution of the smartphone, in my opinion... or somewhere between a smartphone and a laptop. In either case, the tablet's greatest strengths are its touchscreen technology and portability. The former is not very well suited to the core gaming experience- not on its own, anyway; the DS series and the Vita show, however, that it can be quite effective when traditional controls are included- and the latter is not as effective as a dedicated gaming handheld. Gamers know this, and gamers want dedicated handhelds to play on, primarily. So no, "everyone" does not want a tablet, at least not for gaming.
Better than PS3 //. / Kidding .....not really
This is like Netflix streaming but with games
