Sparks of the latent console-wars in a little opinion article.

An interesting little opinion article on CNET voices a rebuke to Apple’s marketing in the name of gaming consoles. Specifically, the writer takes issue with some comparisons made between the iPad 3 and current established “hardcore” gaming consoles, i.e. the XBOX 360 and PS3. While it may seem somewhat petty, the primary issue addressed is with the comparisons’ implications that the iPad may somehow be attempting to legitimize itself in the gaming world as something more than a casual platform. Personally, I feel it rather unwise of Apple to risk annoying console fans unless they really plan on releasing something more… well.. console-y. The casual games market for portable devices is anything but lacking.
