Awesome points guys.
PS3: At the end of the day, Xbox is still overclocked to where is pretty much on its last leg. They had a good run on it and its about time for something new. I did hear that the graphics engine on the PS3 is pretty old. I may have misunderstood but i was told my a tech that they have issues learning the PS3 cores so switching platforms would be more pain than worth. I am not loyal to xbox because everyone i know that has one complains about it over heating and hardware issues. Maybe xbox fixed this, idk. My PS3 is still running strong with out heating issues and that is what matter. If xbox comes out with a better platform, i have no issues switching over.
iPad: At the end of my day, iPad does my needs. I have gathered enough that the retina on the new ipad will only show its potential with apps that are rendered to such resolution and same for photos on the internet. I do not see the point in developers creating games for just ipad 3 because i would piss a lot of ipad 1 and 2 users off. Any games even out that use the resolution of the ipad 3?
