They already made Nvidia tablet to run Serious Sam 3: BFE last year, a game that was originally a PC exclusive. This isn't anything new.

Still, in both this and that cases the visuals seemed heavily downgraded. The lighting and textures have taken a nosedive.

picture only sort of related.

Catching up doesn't mean games on it will already have the same or better visual fidelity.

Much like PCs, there's a huge amount of different smartphone specs out there, and the latest high end smartphones won't be a huge part of the market, so the reasonable thing to do is to develop for the average smartphone in the market, which is simply weaker.

It's exactly what happens with PC exclusive games, sure you could make a game for i5/GTX 780 kind of hardware and it would look great, but you're limiting your usebase significantly.

It's pretty impressive how far mobile has come, some people are saying this isn't shit, but this is a pocket device running it. Compared to the 3DS it's so way ahead it's not even funny.

As impressive as it could be, I just don't see any appeal. And it's obvious concessions had to be made in order to get in run on smart devices.

This game just doesn't benefit from mobile devices though, most mobile users probably don't care about that, they just want something to pick up and play for a few minutes and then put down or never play ever again. On a dedicated handheld console I can get, but not here. And if I were to play a game like that, I'd play it on a dedicated home console or a PC without having to deal with shitty touch controls.

Also I'm sure people that wanted to play Bioshock already have played it.

>The good news is that it plays perfectly fine, even with touch controls. Admittedly, the touch control situation is not ideal. Like Grand Theft Auto's mobile ports, virtual buttons appear contextually on screen. Also like Grand Theft Auto's mobile ports, I found myself scrambling to figure out which virtual button to push as a gang of enemies descended on me.

Sure, sounds perfect to me.

Why can't the consumers and publishers accept that anything that requires emulated onscreen inputs is not worth playing on a mobile? I'd say the only exception to that is turn based games.

Which ones? and how are they? I have a gameklip to use with my Note 2 but it's cumbersome and I only have 1 PS3 controller so I have to keep removing it when I want to play PS3 or use my PS3 pad on the PC. I have a PSP but I've wanted to emulate my PSP games for quicker loading and better resolution. A pad like the Archos looks like a PSP even, so it's interested me

I've got the Xperia Play.
Nowadays it's pretty underpowered, heck even at launch it was. I used it mostly for emulators, it could do PS1 and N64 pretty good but I wouldn't push it much further. Those circle pads are fucking useless.

I've not tried much emulation on the Archos Gamepad but the battery life is fucking horrendous and the analog sticks are the worst I've ever used. Worse than the Dreamcast's and PSP's.
>>
>>256329915

Honestly I'd rather get the Moga Ace for my phone or that other JoyPro or whatever it is and use USB/BT Joystick Center to map it for universal compatibility, but fucking $50 for a controller addon like shit nigga what

I found the Gamepad pretty cheap so I don't feel ripped off by it, but yeah I'd only recommend it if you found it extremely cheap.
>>
>>256332639
>Moga
I remember when I bought my Moga Pocket.
Fuck that horrible piece of shit, the Analogues felt like D-Pads, there was no D-Pad, played all games like shit and it felt like each input was delayed.
>>
saying that a mobile phone or tablet is more powerful than a console is the equivalent of building a fast car that has a really small fuel tank. like they will say you can drive the car at 20mph and you will get 8 hours of driving out of it, but if you go over that and into the 40s and 60s, the fuel consumption goes up and you will only get a handful of minutes behind the wheel before it stops. what im trying to say is that, yeah these phones and stuff are powerful, but playing any of these games will make it to hot and run the battery out faster than anything, thus nullifying the reason you have a mobile phone or tablet

Yeah, I don't personally like Moga either, their controllers felt pretty shitty when I used my friends'. I just use them as an example since they're well known.

>>256345570
SoCs are getting more power efficient as well, you can usually use a phone/tablet for 8-10hrs watching videos or browsing the web and get 5-7hrs doing something that requires more power (like playing games), definitely more than "a handful of minutes".
>>
>>256346441
That's not really what I meant by cumbersome, I carry around a bag as well with a laptop.

What I meant was I just hate holding this huge thing in my hands. A PS3 controller with a Note 2 attached is a pretty large handheld. It just feels sort of heavy in the hands and it ends up bugging me after a while
>>

>>256346838
Jeez, Note 2? I thought that the Galaxy S4 is big enough, could you go all split screen and use two apps at once? Or is it just a tablet with phone features.

I guess in your situation, a product that doesn't make the phone feel like a Virtual Boy in terms of bulkiness would be pretty good.

you can always use ODIN to flash the stock rom back onto your phone. There's really no reason to use AOSP on a samsung device because there's so many features that you lose, along with stability and audio quality.

No, no, I'm asking did you boot your phone into your custom recovery to flash an AOSP rom? Because that's the only way you can do it, and I highly doubt you just deleted your recovery off your phone.

yeah but in few years. Also why not just make console that is exact copy of tablet just with more powerful hardware and call it handheld?
>>
>>256352735
Actually didn't Sony and Nintendo both aim at 5-6 years? When they say it lasts for 10 years it means they'll still release games for it and support it (network/patches) but in 5-6 years they'll have a PS5 and a Wii Woo.

I as a matter of fact have, and I personally prefer Tablets compared to PC when I'm reading something, or lurking this shithole or reading a doujin with my hands in my pants.

>>256352980
Fairly certain that they (or Microsoft at least) are going for 10 years this gen
It's not too unbelievable considering last gen was about 7 years.
No idea about the Wii U though, that is a little different after all (the earlier release and significantly different hardware).

I don't need to put my left hand on the arrowkeys or mouse, I can browse the internet with either hand on my tablet.

Also, reading comic books, books and doujins on tablets are infinitely superior than on a desktop where you use Arrowkeys/Middle Mouse to go to next page.
>>
>>256353337
Why would they go for a long generation again?

Those consoles are pretty cheap to make, made of off the shelf parts, and being surpassed by mobiles is one more reason for them to make this a "quick", 5 years generation. The abysm that there will be between PCs and consoles 3-4 years from now will also be scary for them.
>>
>>256350897
overtake graphically? yeah, no doubt.

But honestly as long as mobile games are going to remain as clunky to control as they are, i just can't see them ever becoming THE definitive way to play video games on the go. have you ever noticed that the biggest mobile game successes also tend to be the only games that actually control fairly well with a touch interface? Angry Birds, Flappy Bird immediately come to mind

most big-name devs just dump trashy mobile tie-ins to their console releases on phones that play like shit. i'll give ubisoft a bit of a pass because they've actually gotten mobile tie-in games right a few times (the rayman origins tie-in and that recent assassin's creed one) but they've fucked up plenty of them too.

Touchscreen laptop master race.

You are indeed master race then, you get to read doujins and shit that I mentioned the way it's meant to be and you get physical buttons.

That's Master Race.

>>256354072
I think they're already ahead of handhelds graphically.

Also, despite not making angry birds kind of money, I guess the ports from console games are being profitable, or else Take Two wouldn't keep making them, all those GTAs, XCOM and now Bioshock

This is kinda bullshit though.
There are people, even on /v/ who still own for example geforce 8600/core2duo setups yet AAA games won't run on it.
Indies are kinda different thing, they can't make the games use the latest technology because nomoney(and usually - noskillz) so instead they're focusing on making other shit.

Smartphones are really similar with one huge difference - "heavy" games earn only fraction of money that Angry birds or other flash-level game earn. So when you see advanced game on google play/apple store - it's usually port, and who the hell would want to play ports with such horrible controls?

Thought I should screencap it all for context.
>>
>>256355061
That's because those toasters probably aren't the most common setups for people who buy games, so devs of PC only games just target better specs. If by AAA you mean multiplats, those are made with consoles in mind.

Ports or not, I have to assume those things still make money (you don't have to make as much as angry birds to make profits) since publishers keep making them. There are few devs who try to push the hardware, like Madfinger games who created Dead Trigger 1/2 and Gameloft.

I doubt Sony will be in any hurry to start a new gen considering they're winning this one. Nintendo will probably release a new console in 2017 since they typically go in 5 year cycles. I'm curious to see how they rectify the launch errors they had with the Wii U (crappy name that caused confusion, too much focus on the gamepad that made the Wii U look like an add-on, physical console itself looked too much like a Wii, little advertising/marketing, no system seller at launch, underestimation of HD development). I figure Microsoft may release a new console at the same time as Nintendo.
>>
One has to wonder if 3rd party support for handhelds is going to dry out, Capcom just ported MonHun Freedom Unite for iOS, some publishers like 2K Games seem to be enamored with mobile, Japan that always loved handhelds is a huge market for mobiles now, shit is just in a bad state overall for handhelds.
>>
>>256328863
that looks like a psp version its impressive but i dont see why you wouldnt play a console or pc version over the mess you just posted

and you are deluded for a number of reasons the mobile catching up to this gen will be expensive as fuck
and even if your prediction is true the big 3 will already have started working on the next gen by the time 4 years passes
>>
>>256328863
>I give it 4 years before mobile catches up with the current gen.
console gen maybe
>>
>>256360958
because handhelds are literally pointless now seeing as most people have smartphones that are relatively powerful (you could get an S5 for $100 when you had an upgrade, and an S4 for literally 1 dollar when you renewed your contract)

Controllers for phones are getting really cheap too, so it's not a surprise that studios aren't making many games for a closed system like a handheld
>>
>>256337937
I am jelly.

I will admit that
>>
>>256361962
OP is overly optimistic, if by that he means 4 years to catch up to PS4/Xbone hardware. Mobiles are close to 360/PS3 but there's a long way to go still, I would say 8 years is a much better estimate. At one point smartphones/tablets will surpass consoles during their cycle, yearly refreshes simply beats years of stagnation that consoles provide.

Smartphones already have 2,7Ghz quadcore processors and soon get octacores. The GPU is obviously shit in comparison to PCs or consoles but innovation happens where the money is and that's mobile shit right now.
Intel's current CPU architecture is a bit over seven years old and they had no reason to change anything as there's no serious competitor threatening them on the desktop market.
I'm personally certain we see even better mobile processors and less desktop performance increase in the long run.
>>
>>256366620
Clock rates don't mean shit when comparing different architectures, but yes they're going to be pretty powerful, I can't imagine what mobile tech will be in 10 years
>>
>>256367171
Sure, the architecture is obviously multimedia focussed but performance is excellent in this field. Desktop has a different target audience. Yet the 2.7Ghz do carry meaning - it shows how energy efficient mobile devices have become to allow such clock rates to begin with. Contary to this we saw little change in the desktop market and only got the usual manufacturing process advances.

>>256329489
Shield Tablet is more powerful than the PS3 and 360.

Next-gen phones will be too.

Actually ... most 3D games on Android run at a higher FPS than Xbone.

Yet Dragon Quest 8 will still run and look better on 14 year old hardware while the phone version constantly crashes and struggle to maintain 20FPS.

How long until your average gaming desktop could play things like GTA iCEnhancer?

Not only that but the experience is not the same. No one can tell me that playing on some little 8 inch screen with touch controls is better or even equal than on a bigger pc monitor with mouse and keyboard. There is no comparison wharsoever. Not saying it doesnt have its place. Mobile platforms are catered more towards casuals and hopefully these types of vidya will steer them toward the full experience on pc.

It may not be 20 minutes, but your phone sure as shit won't last the 4-6 hours that your average handheld system does.

I think tablet games need to be massively downgraded on the graphic side to keep up on the gameplay side. Sooner or later, they'll find a way to balance it out

Once all the devs stop making games on consoles and PC it will truly be the end.
>>
>>256377865
No sane publisher would spend money developing big budget mobile titles, where people pay pennies for your games. When it comes to games more complex than mini game shit like angry birds, all mobile will get are ports.
>>
>>256328863
mobile will never have controls unless it's a handheld console. every attempt to include them has and will continue to be a failure outside of niche products aimed at emulatorfags.
