Sony hopes the "unique" experience will help people find value in the Vita
I don't recall hearing anything about a new iPad next month, only rumors. Anyway...two different devices really. Only people who don't know any better would think they are the same.
The iPad 3. Costs twice as much as the VITA, isn't a dedicated gaming device, and doesn't have proper console style games. Yet, sites like this decide to compare the 2. What ever happened to this world. A tablet is being good at being a tablet. A portable console is good at being.. well.. a portable console.
So what? PS vita is a gaming machine with good social features and Ipad 3 will be a tablet that won't provide you games like Uncharted, Wipeout etc.
Smartphones and Tablets are great but they're really different things from the Vita. No handheld gaming device should even try to compete with them.
indeed. Tablets and gaming handhelds are different. They focus on different areas, hence, i don't give a single fu*k about this "article".
Apple could put the Iturd on the market and sell a shit load of it. btw, what's up with all the comparisons between tablets and DEDICATED GAMING HANDHELDS?
easy... PS Vita = Pussy Magnet iPad = Geek Magnet
I would say the total opposite. For some reason women like apple.
If u think ur getting pussy running around with a vita ur doing it wrong...
could not have said it better myself boy, lets go fishing.
Did they add buttons and dual analogs to the iPad 3? I ask because that's the only reason I would consider getting one for gaming.
Doubt that. Jobs hated buttons lol
When it comes to gaming, tablets and phones will never compare to the Vita or 3DS.
I would pick my 3DS over tablet gaming And on occasion my vita over my PS3 Tablet and phone gaming are a nice extra, una but for gamers they are not it
Ahh, 2 different things!!! Stupid article...makes no sence...
3ds FTW!!! ;)
Yeah, I don't want an over priced Ipad for gaming.That is for Apple sheep only.VITA is for gaming. There is no comparison in my opinion.
The iPad willi sell a lot more than the Vita simple because Apple has a bigger fan base The Vita doesn't have to compete with it to be good
Ill be selling my iPad 2 just before that rumoured March 7th announcement. Vita next week then iPad 3 next month cant wait :) That screen rumoured for the iPad 3 is crazy, 2048 x 1536.
B-b-but i thought the Vita is expensive......and now its competing against a 600+ ipad 3 and i guess that reasonable. OMG wheres the logic??" People act like the Vita's biggest negative is the price yet keeps trying to compare it to tablets that is at least twice the cost.
Last I heard, that IPad lost to Samsung's tablet. Besides this is a gaming system, not a every day take to work thing.
" As Sony said before, marketing for the Vita will be targeting "men in their 20s who play video games eight hours a week or more and own a PS3 console." " Damn. 3/3.
daim! ipad 3 allready? has it been a whole year since the ipad 2 release... here i was saviing to get a ipad 2 after i got my vita..damn apple they keep spitting out idevices.. they ARE allowed to chill with the releases u know...
Ummm, if the iPad 3 doesn't sport any real buttons/analog sticks, there will be no competition. VITA will crush everything for years to come.
I love all the articles that compare Ipad and Iphone gaming to gaming on an actual system designed to play video games on the go. I've yet to find a smart phone or tablet that I had any desire to buy. I've yet to find an 'app' game that had any lasting value. I've also been amused that people knock the price of the Vita @ $250 but show off their $400+ Iphones that they paid under $200 for with a 2 year locked phone contract or $500 tablets and claim these 'games' are the best games since Pong. I'll take my Vita and enjoy it. The rest of the world can play their app games on their phones and tablets. Whatever makes 'em happy.
100% agree dude i'll take the cheaper more game dedicated Vita over worthless finger poking/swiping tablets/phones. they are only good for texting and browsing the web.
lmfao... Vita and iPad aren't competing in any way. How much will iPad 3 cost? $600? That's ridiculous.
already have an ipad. vita for me
i already decided im gonna get a vita over an ipad soo
What everyone else said: they're not competing.
