"However, when it comes to raw computing power, the Vita is no longer the most powerful portable graphics device. The fourth-generation iPad now takes that role thanks to the newer-generation PowerVR GPU."

"Should Sony be worried? Not because of performance. As a dedicated game console, the Vita is still has built-in physical controls — an extremely important feature for gamers — while the iPad does not. Sony’s biggest concerns right now for the Vita are poor sales and a limited game selection."

Something like that. Given the trend, i bet the next iphone (or android phone) will have ipad 4 specs. So i guess phones will be "smashes vita in raw graphics power" in about a year.

I love cheese. Velvetta. And double cheeseburgers from McDonald's. It's a personal weakness of mine.

I am sure you don't. Lots of people do. It was sold out the first weekend, and sold 3M (with ipad mini).

So i doubt they miss your business.

Switch JRPGs with Shooters, and I'm sure that's what they're saying about us.
