Should the PS4 and Xbox 720 have iPad integration?

The Nintendo Wii U will be released sometime in 2012, and with it a rather unique controller, which has been dubbed the WiiPad. The game giant is hoping that this new controller will have what it takes to persuade gamers to buy the new Wii U console and not the PlayStation 3 or the Xbox 360. With this is mind do you think that the PS4 and the Xbox 720 should go down a different route and have iPad integration instead?

Options are always a good thing. If they wanted to add some form of integration that would be fine. But don't dare make it a needed peripheral. I wouldn't even piss on an apple product if it were on fire. But as I said- options are always nice regardless of who is (or not) going to use it.

Why the F not? Put in iphone integration while your at it... I wish I could transfer files (songs, gamesaves, etc.) wirelessly without having to take my usb form my computer to my ps3

Also, I'd liek to see some sort of remote play involved too. The only phone with remote play on ps3 is that one sony ericsson phone.

So yes....nothing wrong with the integration. I think people are assuming for it to use as the systems main controller..then yea a NO to that (besides remote play).

This way, I can also send messages to my ps3 friends list without being on the ps3! So if your not supporting the ipad and iphone, at least support more devices. I only have the iphone but I'd like for people to have more options than no option at all.

Agree or Disagree if you Agree

Microsoft will not embrace apple will they? i wouldt if i was microsoft

MS are the reason Apple are still around. In the late 90s they injected money ($150m) into Apple to ensure they're survival. Perhaps payback for coping them originally.

Although yeah, now Apple are in very good shape (clawing at market share), I dont think MS will be offering them anymore support.

And look at Apple now - zero debt and $76 Billion in CASH..

"Both Sony and Microsoft could do something very clever here, and instead of adapting one of their own tablets – which we know are limited – they could ask for help from Apple. You may wonder why on earth all three would want to venture into a partnership, but it would be a win for all three involved."

The issue with this is that the device isn't specifically made for the console. If MS/Sony went their way they would be able to create a tablet that could fully utilize the console.Apple could always add that function into their own Ipad, but it just isn't the same. The devices aren't built for each other.

Personally i hate the idea of Tablet gaming. WiiU looks interesting and all, but i would rather stick with a simple controller then have some large tablet. I like PSVita for the size, but it isn't something forced on the Console to use as a controller.


Expect MS to embrace Kinect more in the future of their console gaming.

keep yer iGimmicks away from our consoles

This is stupid for several reasons. Does this author know what apple is and what it is about. Apple is more than just a company now its an image (why the can sell their products at high prices-eliteist) Why would they want intergration with rival companies and visa versa. Not to mention the costs of ipads. Best option is to have there own tablets that intergrate

I'm glad I didn't get on that Apple Hype Train. Never ever had an application of them and I won't buy one in the next years.
