iPhones May Be The GameBoys Of The Future

We all knew iPhones were popular, but were they really this popular? Studies claim that: "In our Spring 2012 survey, 34% of students owned a tablet computer (same percentage as iPhones), up from 29% in Fall 2011 and 22% last Spring. Of those tablet owners, 70% owned iPads, 19% owned Android tablets, and 11% owned Kindle Fires. 53% of iPad owners also owned an iPhone, demonstrating the halo effect of entry devices like the iPhone.

Umm, no. GameBoy is far superior for gaming.

Depends on what games strike your interests, no?

Games ?

And joke aside still games :p . The gameboy had a library of titles worth being jealous ... the iphones/pads not even close .

They are still busy cloning stuff already available , and most times badly . Or doing "flash games"

No. If you want games, you should buy a gameboy advance. Iphone isn't a gaming device. It's a smartphone with the capability to run games (but without buttons).

Wintersun616 wins!!! anybody that played some emulators (or normal/more complex games) on a touchscreens knows, that for being able to fully enjoy playing, buttons are mandatory.

The 3ds is the gameboy of the future

Rainstorm812433d ago

Thats actually a good analogy for casual gamers......my girl hates gaming but plays tons of little casual games on her tablet.

But as far as a future device that actually compares to the Gameboy.....that goes to the PSV or the 3DS

I don't think the 3DS counts as something that's actually good. I own one, but it's nothing special. Plus it's bad for your eyes (and gives slight headaches).

Iphone/Ipod is the FUTURE

Spinal2432d ago

The Xperia Play 2 is the future of mobile gaming. I look forward to buying that baby. The emulators with actual buttons Pwn. I can have the gameboy and all othe past console library. Its a win win situation :)

I do enjoy playing with my iPad, with the iCade. Physical buttons are better, so I agree the Game Boy was pretty dang good.
