Love my vita, love my iPad , adore my iPhone 5, love my 3ds....each one is loved for multiple different reasons....before this the DS and Psp were my main handhelds even through endless piracy they still pumped out great titles and still do...as far as any high tech droid device I would love to but probebly won't get one...mainly because the droid market games just don't match up to the appstore ecosystem. I have a droid tablet and a iPad and find myself gaming more on the iPad and browsing more on the AppStore ....but there still is enough games to keep a gamer busy on droid ...just not this gamer.

TESTING!-Most APPSASIA apps ...if your a dev hit me up and ill help.

Which generation iPad do you own? Do you prefer iPad or iPhone for gaming? And why?

Sorry about the questions but I'm just gathering information for iPhone 5 gaming.

I can't believe how I missed OnLive. For whose doesn't know what does it do, it's a Cloud Gaming Service that works amazingly well.

Also I'm plannig to get that SHIELD as soon as it's released. Does anyone have a plan like that?

Right, but I was expecting a lot from Nvidia this time. Maybe I'll buy it anyway too see how it handles cloud gaming.

Skyrim in a handheld device! Just wow...

Cloud gaming sucks. Nothing beats playing games natively.

But yeah, it is sad seeing nVidia lag so far off the iPad 4's GPU. Probably my next tab has to be an iPad 4/5 instead of a Tegra 4 powered one. Darn.

Exactly! İt sucks big time. That's why I was counting on them so much. The AC 3 demonstration really blew my mind. No lag, crisp and smooth visuals. Definitely something I want to try.

But looks like PowerVR will dominate the field again, especially when the Rogue series come up. Let's see how will Qualcomm respond. They are the two kings of the mobile GPU sector now.
