looks better than the wii....Reply
I didn't think phones would shadow the PSVita this quick, but it's to be expected when something is highly optimized. Now we just need more bluetooth/usb compatible joysticks to make these games worth playing.Reply
frozonici didnt know FPS games for phones had such good graphicsReply
Yeah, ShadowGun is the FPS they show in that video and it can be played on current tegra 2 phones, theres cracks that allow it to work on adreno gpu's as well. Gorgeous game for a phone.
Somehow gaming on the phone always gives me the creeps, it get's me scared that the keys might get ruined 'cos after all it is a phone.Reply
Main issue I have is the controls for phones. Touchscreens arent too great to me... graphics look good though.Reply
Yeah... the lack of dedicated buttons and analog sticks are still a big negative for phone gaming.Reply
I want to play Zombie Driver!Reply
People nit picking about the controls are being over critical. You have a phone/tablet with bluetooth, usb, and hdmi and your moaning about the controls? It also happens to have multi touch display in your hands like recently announced, but unreleased Wii U.Reply
So basically you can take your pick from bluetooth peripherals like wii and ps3 peripherals just so happen to be along with usb ones like xbox and pc happen to be. On top of that you can display it via HDMI to a HDMI device and with wifi you can remote desktop it to a pc in a different room to your HDTV for example. Hell if you have 2 one can be used as a Wii U style multitouch peripheral and the other to stream to the HDTV.
You might even be able to setup softh and remote desktop to it honestly for extra resolution and multitouch control functionality for your desktop pc.
