How can Ps4 possibly win over iPad gaming?

99.99% of those 1$ games are garbage
And the .01% are meh,

Dedicated consoles are much more powerful, Have much better games, And loliPad


The masses today don't give a crap about if Ps4 games look slightly better than iPad games, or if they're a little better.

People today want cheap games. Only dedicated gamers want to pay $60 for a game.


And what's wrong with that? Gaming survived before casuals, and it will survive after them. Just because the market is smaller, doesn't mean it's not there. If there is money to be made, someone will fill the niche.

Yes, slightly. Believe it or not, non-gamer people don't stare at a scenery to look for jaggies or low resolution shadows. Most people won't notice much difference between great looking iPad games and great looking Ps4 games.

But they WILL notice the difference on the price tag.



Exactly, People who don't mind paying that much, And get what they pay for

iPhone>iPad, And tell me good games on iPhone other than Zenonia series and Cave shooters

Phone games quality is worse than the console games quality, And why are you even comparing a console to a tablet? Each of them have different uses

Games on Tablets are much simpler than games on Consoles or PC. The lower price comes as a result of this. It's not just about graphics, it's about gameplay.


Of course they're simpler, but the huge difference in price doesn't justify that. You get 60 iPad games for one Ps4 game. No way that one Ps4 games has more content than 60 iPad games.

And on top of that, those 60 games means a great variation.

Modern day solitaire games are not going to so much as dent console sales.

The reason games survived in the past was because development costs were so low - today they reach the sky. Companies MUST sell a lot more games today to break even than they had to do in the past. That's why you can't ignore the casuals unless your game is CoD or FIFA/Madden.

And why would the casuals care about the Ps4? It's not interesting when they already have the iPad.

Conclusion


iPad is for people who want to play while waiting for something else

Consoles is for people who dedicate some of their time for playing

I fully agree to that, and most people don't want to dedicate time for games.

iOS/Android gaming is limited to touch gaming that plays a maximum of a PSP game and pretty much DS ports of certain games.

As much as I do play games on my phone, PS4 will just be like "lol k".

Then a console isn't for them. Gaming on an Iphone/Ipad/Android is hit or miss. Much like the Wii, casual gamers are only in it for a while then sales drop.

Zynga, the company that's famous for so many mobile games has been bleeding money and had to shut down several of its offices due to lost profits.

Mobile gaming on a phone is something you do to pass the time, and for the most part its free. Most of the revenue isn't in the one dollar purchases but in the ads they get to jam in there while you play.

Only Apple product I own is the iPod Classic. Other than the 160GB one they made a little later, everything else was absolute garbage. Haven't even considered grabbing an iPad or anything of the sort.
