Worry not, true believers. All the hype, all the news, all the specs that you heard about months prior to yesterday’s press conference were pretty much confirmed. Some rumors definitely missed, like the supposed inclusion of Siri, lack of a Home button, and the old “iPad HD” naming chestnut, but everything else was as expected.
A quad-core processor, more RAM, higher pixel count, better camera, 4G connectivity, and a virtual kitchen sink app to cover all the bases. It looks mighty fine. Apple claims it is four times more powerful than the iPad 2, which will be reduced $100 until it’s no longer relevant. They can rebuild it. They can make it stronger, faster, better…
Epic Games, publisher of Infinite Blade and developer of the Unreal Engine, already has a raging nerdrection going for it. Namco Bandai’s Sky Gamblers looks absotively stupendrific. Dismiss this device as a true gaming platform all you want, but it’s a heavy-hitter.
And it’s coming to many countries in a just over a week. (South Korea is not one of them… dammit.)
If you haven’t converted yet, now’s as good a time as ever, gamers. All those who already own an iOS device, get ready for a massive App Store sale as publishers fight over the new fish.Tweet
