A device that's newer and way more expensive will have better graphics. I'm amazed...

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.


poor and jealous haha


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.


Not everything can be like a game console where it's the same hardware for 7 years, of course even those have redesigns.


That's true but by the same token( for better or worse) I can buy any dedicated gaming console, with closed hardware, and know that any game released for it will work on that console. With the Ipad( or such tablet), you're buying something that is refreshed annually and for which the 'older' models are 'cut off' at a certain point from future apps and software upgrades( forced obsolescence in some cases). I have an ipad2 bought June 2011, they've just released Ipad4. I'm fully expecting that by the time we get to Ipad5 next year, my ipad2 will be cut off from certain apps. This for a product I spent $599 on 1 1/2 years ago.

Even with console redesigns, features may be added or subtracted, but the guts of the system is more or less consistent.

Not one year after the console are released ... not the average PC anyway.

Vita has buttons and analogue sticks.


Take that, Apple.

And how does consumer response to those "buttons" and "sticks" so far?

I am sure Apple is crying when the iphone 5 outsold the entire vita run in a weekend.

Are you stupid? Iphones and Ipads always sell millions during it's debut. Hell, even during it's lifetime. That doesn't mean it's a better gaming system than the Vita or 3DS or another system. God you are annoying as hell.
