Top 5: Why the iPad will be a killer gaming platform

3 February 2010 1,103 views No Comment

The top5 reasons why the iPad will be a killer gaming platform:

1. The form-factor: Big screen, A4 processor and a faster accelerometer. Suddenly, a gaming console can be carried with you for picnics, parties etc.
2. (Hopefully) huge base of gamers – we definitely hope the iPad will sell a lot
3. The interoperability with the iPhone App ecosystem – the fact that iPhone games/apps will also work on the iPad throws up immense possibilities, like a multi-player game with iPad being the master node and iPhones being slave nodes.
4. The possibility of real-time multi-player games with some on a desktop / laptop and some on iPads (e.g. racing)
5. The fact that video-out can be used by games as well (its accessible from the SDK) – this makes it possible to use the iPad either as a controller, or to use the TV / monitor as a secondary screen. This opens up a set of permutations and combinations for games.
