Hardcore gamers seem to have a hatred of the device, and the ios platform. I think they are scared. The graphics are getting better, the technology is getting better, I personally believe the traditional console will not be around much longer. Look how everybody is concered with getting things smaller and faster. Nobody will want a clunky console that doesn't upgrade or change for 7+ years. I mean it's bad when my phone has better graphics than some xbox 360 games. Now, yes. ios games still have a long way to go before they can compete with traditional 60 dollar games. But the potential is there.
