yeh ... that is vita's only advantage now.


Wording it that way trivializes how massive of an advantage it is.


This.

Also, I don't care much about how powerful the iPad 87 is, but it's interesting to see how powerful people are making handheld devices.

Technology moves fast. It's crazy how outdated the consoles are now.

Everyone already knew from the beginning of this handheld generation that smartphones and tablets would overpower them in terms of months or less than a year anyway since new smartphones and tablets get announced and released all the time.

Too bad there aren't many games on IOS that I would play for more than 5 minutes at a time.

In terms of actual games though ipad 4 still is incapable of making anything close to the quality of vita games.

"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."


Well that was unexpected..I guess the ipad 4 has ps3 graphics...?


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.


So does that make the 3ds even more obsolete in the handheld graphical department?

DAMN

You know what's more crazy?

Nintendo releasing another outdated home console and calling it next gen.

It's not even remotely possible to be as bad as the Vita's battery life.

lol Everytime I bring up that 3DS point he never responds. Must have a serious grudge with the Vita's hardware capabilities.
