Brian Ashcraft: This is hardly scientific—and honestly, something I have yet to confirm myself. However, this set of photos apparently compares the new iPad to the PS Vita and the 3DS.
Vita, 3ds then I dont know because the ipad or iphone are not gaming consoles.
So what if its about being a true multi-purpose device? Anyway, 3 million in 3 days versus not even close to 3 million after 3 months. I know which sales figures Sony would much rather prefer. No, I don't have an iPad but damned if they don't sell!
>>So what if its about being a true multi-purpose device? This is not the site about multi-purpose devices. This is a site about games. So it is all about being a game device in the first place.
Yeah you're right. Suppose they had better stop posting articals about PC games because last time I checked they we multi-purpose. Hell, even consoles are. Wow, better close N4G down or rename it to BVF for butthurt vita fanboy.
@CommonSenseGamer Dude, you were wrong. Just let it go. Firstly, CoD sold more than BF3, and we all know which the real winner is. Secondly, the iPad is simply not a gaming device, neither are PC's, but read the fucking title of the article. The VITA and the 3DS ARE gaming devices, no one asked about a PC. So I stick with Eco's choice.. 1. VITA 2. 3DS 3. ?? (Defo not iPad) Personal opinion: Compulsory touchscreen gaming is worse than Rebecca Black.
Vita's screen is astounding. Surprised to see it wipes the floor with the retina display.
AGREE! Vitas screen is damn neat, looks amazing, really clear, bright and big. i dont own one but i plan to in the future but for me i prefer the 3DS screen im a sucker for 3D i love seeing movies and playing games in 3D lucky for me i never had a single problem with the 3D on the 3DS, no headaches or trouble keeping the sweetspot. i have that thing on full blast xD
"but for me i prefer the 3DS screen " lol, that can't be true...it's like : "i prefer my 10" crt television versus my full led samsung 46" by the way, even without marvellous amoled screen, the graphisms are 1 generation ahead.
I wasn't surprised at all. I thought it was common knowledge that Retina displays are nothing special, just a fancy name on a regular display.
No doubt. But I don't get why they put iPad near handhelds. It's like comparing a home console with netbook. Doesn't make sense at all.
screen wise Vita wins. its bigger and clearer but my vote goes to the 3DS i just love 3D, luckily for me i never had problems like headaches or trouble keeping the sweetspot IN ALL HONESTY i play so much in 3D that when i turn off the 3D my eyes go crosseyed and try to find depth. 3D really does "solidify" the game world. i got used to playing pushmo in 3D, when i turn it off i get so confused at what im looking and where the puzzle pieces are depth wise
well i got both a vita and a 3ds. and i must say the vita looks better, both in looks and screen-quality i don't know about the ipad since i don't own one, so i'll take my experience pased on the first ipad which had a screen similar to the vita, and they might have improved the ipad 3 screen. most likely the ipad 3 screen is the best one, its alot bigger aswell so ofc its more enjoyable to look on..for movies..since the ipad is usless for games but i would prefer the vita since its nice and sleek got an allright size for a handheld and looks really nice with games..the ipad just got a nice screen that u won't even be able to use like it should be..games. because apple don't have access to any proper games. vita wins, again..for now. until nintendo or apple can dish out something thats better than the vita i guess.
Ipad1 screen similar to PS Vita screen? Omg, that's just delusional. Don't take Apple PR for the truth, even the Retina display is far behind AMOLED screens.
i know the vita's screen is better, but the two screen freakin look crisp, i'm not a techfreak, all i know is.. i have seen both screens and they are both crisp..
obviously vita has a better picture than the 3ds, dat oled dont care about tablets really, but if i had to, there was an android tablet that was fantastic, so i would drop the ipad to whatever last is
I don't own a 3DS but I do own a Vita. And I can say from personal experience that the Vitas OLED screen is fantastic. I did get to play some titles on my friends 3DS (Mario Kart, Resident Evil Revelations, Super Mario 3D Land etc..) from what I could see the 3DS has a poor screen in comparison to the Vita and it even looks worse with 3D on. What stuck out the most was the poor resolution and terrible contrast combined with muted colors. But maybe I'm just used to the Vitas screen quality that these issues are more noticeable to me than others. Sort of like getting used to HD movies and then watching a VHS tape on an old TV.
