And this is surprising because?

The 3DS and PS Vita are predominately game consoles, which have less overall uses than a tablet. Like, outside of gaming, the Vita only does an okay job at running say Twitter, playing a movie (screen size), browsing the internet, where as a tablet will give you 7 - 10 inches to browse the web, web chat, take arguably better pictures, use as a remote, better screen for movies, generally more portable (at least against the Vita over the thumbsticks). Not to mention there is more after market value for a tablet than the Vita / 3DS and several tablets can be bought for less than the 3DS or Vita.

Exactly, who is surprised by that? Tablet are not for gaming, you can game on it, but they are not made for it. A lot of Businessmen and so on also use tablets and are far away from gaming with it. I mean, there are also a lot more PCs out there than consoles, but they are not gaming PCs, they are old and used only for work. Really nothing to be surprised here...

I'm seriously scratching my head over this. this is something even Captain Obvious himself would decline to say, but somehow they did a "research" for it?

Yea and in 4-5 years, those same people are DONE GAMING. They will have moved on to the next "cool" thing.

Chuck Norris is already dead for 10 years, but Death was afraid to tell him.

Hahaha... I love the comments you guys come up with.

wait, wait!! I've got one!!...

Can't wait to see more tablet controllers... huh?, huh?....

Sony may hold on to traditional console gaming, but it's disheartening that tablets are making game development even more casual than Wii did.
Where's the virtual reality I'm still dreaming about?!?

OrangePowerz2184d ago

And a lot more people have smartphones compared to tablets. I therefore declare tablets to be dead.
