Gamerstorm's Shaxster looks at the usage of the iPad 2 in gaming, highlighting key features that could make it a great gaming platform.
absolutely nothing just like the first one
Actually, I hope the Ipad devours most of the casual gamers, so that Console and PC developers can get back to supporting the more mainstream and hardcore gamers.
if that happens they will just port those casual games to more platforms, including consoles remember angry birds?
It means that your next cell phone might be the ps4. Im not kidding.
chips are not even close yet even tegra 4 can't match PS3, 360 NGP is pretty much tegra 4 with a quad core processor and GPU and ps3 burns it by miles. phonees can hardly use lighting and AA. NGP does 4xMSAA and console lighting
it means NOTHING, period.
Agreed, Mr. Kojima! NGP will best all handhelds
it truly is and it can be used as 5 inch tablet as well. so with apps you can have any kind of word processor, video editor and with a real GPU its fast works like a true program
Nothing. Just like the SKU before it. I know what I'll be buying on March 25th. And it ain't iPad2...begins with 3 and ends in DS.
ja ja.... nice1
Seriously i kinda like those ipad and phone devices , but it means nothing important , besides more advertised somewhat ok mini games like angry birds . Sorry but my gaming standards are way higher than angry birds ... I just obviously expect it to sell atrociously well , and the occasionnal "hey look at the power of my thingy , i can do home console graphics too" game that plays like crap . I also expect another console franchise gettings butchered for it (Sonic 4 anyone ?)
Does it mean more casual games and shovelware?
its funny how idiots look at specs alone and not games
As usual all the kids who's pocket money doesn't stretch far enough leave their comments...
Being difficult to carry around. I wouldnt get an IPAD for games i would get either a 3DS or an NGP since dedicated gamming devices are much better for games than a giant PDA.
Let's not forget the ipad works out more expensive in the long run compared to a dedicated console. Don't you have to pony up like £30-45 per month just to own this tech on a subscription with a network provider? or you can buy it sim free for anything up to £600 and still must activate the tech with a provider pay and go/monthly. ...then you will find within your 24 month contract, and indeed 1 year of this tech's release the ipad3 gets announced and you're left with an obsolete product which you are still paying for!! No, the ipad is not going to trouble NGP, 3DS at all.
there is a wifi only version as well but saying that, i would buy either
their are already tablets that are just as powerful if not even more powerful then the ipad2, plus, not everyone wants to play on a giant touch screen
I can see all the headlines now ...'Man gets robbed on the tube, ipad2 stolen' ...'Thief robs a woman in the street for her ipad2'. I mean we cannot live in fear, but these devices are pure eye candy to the thieves in the street. Same can happen to 3DS/NGP/PSP yes, but at least those devices are more concealable. Just saying...
Nothing. I don't and wouldn't buy a Giant iTouch with the intent to game on it. Also where the games? And no i don't mean only old gen remakes and $1-$5 games. Also don't want to look through a crap ton of shovelware.
I wrote this piece. Just to answer some of these comments, there are other games apart from Angry Birds on iOS. Infinity Blade, Modern Combat, Street Fighter, Call of Duty: Zombies, and many more. And as I said, I wouldn't buy it as a games device. It's the fact that it does more than just games.
iFail 2 still doesn't have a flash player, that's kinda sad.
