Loud Mouthed Gamers: "While Apple may define their 3rd generation iPad as a console, industry professionals are fighting back."
Yes, it will revolutionize the industry...in 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.
It should be the wii first when it comes to games. Hardware is not enough nowadays, software is needed and optimization is most important in equipment which are closed to upgrades. I enjoy the ipad2 and will probably buy ipad5 or something where it can probably match console quality games though I doubt developers would makes games over $20.
No in terms of gaming it is not up there...........the gameboy is better Lets compare some rpgs and see which we think control better, have more depth, and are just better overall zenonia 4 - Broken controls, 15 hour game chaos rings 2 - Great game , 15 hour game infinity blade 2 - shallow, bad controls, 15 hour game ff type zero - 50+ hours, great controls pokemon black white - 60+ hours, great controls, depth findgom hearts DDD - 50+ hours, great controls, depth
yep fails in games department. Plus I need more than a touch screen to play games. I dont mind a touch screen as long as games are controlled with an actual controller primarily
it's a great platform for casual gamers who aren't too interested in traditional controller type games. apple could even release a pretty bluetooth controller...
