The iPad a console? You have to buy an iPad 6 times compared to the one generation of consoles. Just stupid.

not only is it not a true gaming machine, if anything its a handheld not a console.

Some problems:
-Low battery life (thanks to more processing power)
-No physical buttons (some games won't work)
-No games like Mario, God of War, Uncharted, Zelda, Gran Turismo, Mario Kart, etc etc etc
-Some important multiplatform developers won't give it a chance

The Ipad will be as powerful as a x360 in 2014~2015 but we will have the sucessor to PS3, x360 and WiiU.

There is no way it will be able to compete. Just stop with this kind of article because it's stupid.

Not for most people...

"Low battery life (thanks to more processing power)"
10 hours dont do it for you?

"No games like Mario, God of War, Uncharted, Zelda, Gran Turismo, Mario Kart, etc etc etc"
Why should it have them?

I bought a ps3 at launch for $599, i wouldn't classify that as cheap or easy reached, just because i am a big sony fan.

""No games like Mario, God of War, Uncharted, Zelda, Gran Turismo, Mario Kart, etc etc etc" "Why should it have them? "

Well it needs titles to play first of all, and despite the popular trend recently of downplaying the importance of exclusive games to a consoles lineup.

There should be some quality games that are strictly on that system.

However $600 for an ipad versus $249 for a vita and $179 or 199 for a 3ds for mobile gaming. -_-

There seems to some segment of websites that believe pushing tablet/ipad gaming is somehow beneficial for gamers.

"Why should it have them?"
Seriously? and you want Ipad to compete using small apps, weak games like Infinity Blade and multiplatform games?

Are you kidding?

Bimkoblerutso2101d ago

Yes, it will revolutionize the that now you will have to pay $600 yearly to keep up.

But oh yeah, those $5-$10 apps are SO worth it.

No, just no. Is this article written by an Apple troll fanboy? I have an ipad 2, but I never play games on it, not even Angry Birds (I find it boring). The pPad doesn't have buttons and need battery. So it's disqualified.

That's like saying a PC is a console. By the way I would much rather game on a PC than a fad electronic.

The iPad3 is not. The iPad4 will not. As many advances as tablets make, they will constantly be behind consoles. As it is, the iPad isn't even a handheld yet; it'd have to surpass that to become a console.

The Ipad can't even hold a candle to the psp and ds game libraries. God what does it take to make these people realize that the Ipad is simply a tablet first and gaming is only an added feature. If it was a gaming machine it would have the proper gaming interface and ergonomics to begin with.
