Epic Games president and perennial iPad keynote guest Mike Capps said,”Apple is definitely building their devices as if they care a lot about ‘triple-A’ games. It is quite easy to imagine a world where an iPad is more powerful than a home console, where it wirelessly talks to your TV and wirelessly talks to your controller and becomes your new console.”

    Ha! If this is true then I'm gonna find another hobby. I'm glad I havent listened to and lost all respect for Epic since 2007, and EA since 1999.

    Give me a proper console with a disc drive to watch all my films anyday, which costs half the cost of an iPad.

    If Sony struggled to sell with the PS3 at £500 then I don't see how this will take over.

    The problem with the mentality that devices such as the iPad will take over is quite simple. NOT EVERYONE BUYING THEM ARE DOING SO FOR GAMES. That is why games that are a buck trounce games that cost even $1.99 or higher on these devices. Companies have to price their games at that "throwaway" or "cup of coffee" price, or less, to get people to buy them.

    I am not saying that only good games are higher but for the most part, the experience is quite different from iPad/tablets to playing on a device specifically designed with gaming in mind.

    Take the Metal Gear Solid games on iOS, or Mass Effect, or anything that is fast paced and requires buttons for full enjoyment. Those games are better on consoles/PC's with buttons and controllers.

    the prices are regulated by apple not the game makers.
