    Does the iPad 3 really have the processing power of a 360? I'm not so sure. A dual core ARM processor against a triple core PowerPC doesn't seem equal. Especially when you consider that ARM chips are designed for using less power, not being powerful. I don't have any benchmarks, but I've never seen any in favor of the iPad 3, so saying it has the processing power of a 360 seems a little rushed. Another thing you all seem to be forgetting is storage. 360 games are up to 8 GBs big. That means even if you buy the 64 GB version, which is ludicrously priced compared to the other versions, you'll at best be able to have about 8 games, if they aren't all the full 8 GBs, and some games have to have two discs, and you don't have any movies, books, music, pictures, or any other apps. Oh, and if it's competing with consoles, how much space do BluRay discs have? That's what I thought. So no, I laugh at the idea of the iPad competing with consoles in terms of actual gaming. Will it sell better than consoles? Sure, maybe, since most consumers don't care about hardware, and it'll definitely have plenty of casual games, but will it sell to people as a console that want games like Battlefield, CoD, Skyrim, etc? Not a chance in hell.
