I don't see why anyone would buy an Ipad mini when you can get a Nexus 7 cheaper and has more under the hood. Or a Vita of course Smiley Surprised

Internet fist bump bro! I have the Transformer Infinity (the HD model), though I use it as my laptop replacement for media consumption and paper writing (keyboard dock well worth it). Don't really use it for games though, touch control gaming not really my thing. The Vita is my portable gaming device of choice, it's games that have some touch input are acceptable to me as I can also use PHYSICAL Buttons and controls. Plus I feel my Vita games are much deeper, more engrossing than anything found on a tablet or phone.

 

Sony's Trophy system was super smart to implement on the Playstation Platforms in my opinion. Whenever I beat a 360 game and get the majority of achievements or all, it always feels like something is missing in regards to getting them all as it seems to be bragging rights to whoever your friends are who als own the said game. When i beat a Vita/PS3 game, I can go for all the trophies and then gain a Platinum trophy showing everyone and myself that I FULLY completed the game and all additional tasks. It's a proud accomplishment for completionists, especially not only that but the Vita and PS3 have a "leveling up" rpg like system included with the trophy system.

 

So in other words, I'll take the Vita gaming over the tabelt/phone gaming anyday.

Actually I've never understood the point to a tablet any how. (Or a smart phone for that matter, but that's just me.)

 

People like to complain. Plain and simple. They also like to argue. I had a co-worker who would argue that his smartphone was a better gaming device than my PSP or DS. (This was just before I went out of work on disability in Dec 2011 and the Vita wasn't quite out yet.) He also tried to tell me his Iphone had better games than the 360. I knew he was smoking something with the first statement. With his 2nd statement I knew it was crack.

 

When the PS 3 first came out, I would often watch people complain about the high price point. They would whine about how much the PS 3 cost, but at the same time they would tell me about their 360 (and the stuff they bought for it like the separate Hard Drive, the High Def Disc Drive attachment, the separate Wi-Fi device) and the resulting bill was far more than the base PS 3 price. Or they'd boast about their $2,000 PC gaming rig, but $500 for the base PS 3 was "too much".

 

There is no accounting for taste or logic. To each their own.
