I just picked one up.
And, there is no comparison whatsoever between the Ipad 4 and the Vita in terms of power.
Ipad clearly wins. Period.

BUT,
I cant fit the Ipad in my back pocket. It is not really portable or something I want to be riding the subway late night playing a game on. I also picked up the Ipad Mini, now THIS machine is the one Sony should be worried about. It lacks Vita's power, but control is much improved over every Ipad ever released so far for games. They made the Mini with hardcore gamers in mind. I actually enjoy playing games on it more than I do the Vita.


Rich! Or just a wasteful spender. Why get an Ipad 4 AND an Ipad mini? Why buy an I-anything at all...completely overhyped and overpriced.

Yup. Poor because I don't want to spend $300-$600 on a product that will be replaced in a matter of months. Because I won't support a company that withholds tech just to release it in it's next iteration and then deem said product as "improved". Because I'm wise enough enough to not spend my money on a name brand rather than the product itself.

I don't like being poor! But alas I am. And this is what leads to my jealousy.

Man, you got me figured out.

Frankly I don't care how much more powerful these tablets and phones become compared to dedicated consoles. I've played enough IOS games to know that, aside from a few genres, touchpad controls are hardly an ideal alternative to a traditional button and pad control interface. Just the fact that part of the screen is blocked by my fingers is a turn-off in many scenarios. Just my humble opinion....

I apologize for my previous post. Completely unnecessary. I just hate companies milking products and people drinking the milk.

What company doesn't do that? That's how companies make money and tech gets outdated quickly. Your $500 video card may be replaced by something better in a few months, doesn't mean it is worthless. Not everything can be like a game console where it's the same hardware for 7 years, of course even those have redesigns.

I would assume a Retina resolution would negate some of that power advantage.
