Can mobile gaming replace console gaming without adding physical controls?
cuetip 1 year ago
I hear a lot of people claiming that iPhones, iPads and other smartphones and tablets have made dedicated console gaming obsolete. A point I often hear is along the lines of, “Who wants to pay $50-60 for a game when you can get them at prices ranging from free to $5 all day long?” Basically, my response is....but...but...but...controls. There is the new Nvidia hybrid intended to show off gaming chops, and which looks pretty cool to be honest, but notice what it has.....that’s right, physical controls. Am I a Luddite on this? Do most people think playing games on a tablet or phone is really as good as playing them on a console?
