I wouldn't doubt that but then your more competing with a window 8 pro tablet or even hybrid tablet/laptop.

I don't own a windows 8 tablet so I can't say how it'd stack up against the ipad but being able to play my library of games I already own would be a plus.

He claimed that lying down at night in his bed with the headphones on is a very personal and captivating experience. Like I said TA forums are a different breed of gamers.
A different breed indeed.

Wouldn't controls and complexity be part of the overall experience?

Careful, you might not want to speak for how an entire forum of people looks at things.

I embrace the complexity of games which is one reason I favor PC. As far as relearning mechanics, I can understand that and that's one reason I don't stray to far from my trusty K&M when gaming. I don't see the reason to learn new control mechanics when the content it controls is still inferior to the content I can currently play. Pc ports don't cut it either if I'm going to learn new mechanics then it need to provide a superior gaming experience. I haven't found that yet.

It almost seemed like we were having a normal exchange.
