Carmack: Mobile Gaming To Surpass Current Consoles 119

donniebaseball23 writes "The rate at which hardware iterates in the smartphone and tablet space has allowed the technology to nearly catch up with consoles. It won't be long before we're all carrying small devices more powerful than the PS3, says Doom creator and id Software programming genius John Carmack. Speaking in an interview, he commented, 'It's unquestionable that within a very short time, we're going to have portable cell phones that are more powerful than the current-gen consoles.'" Even if that's the case, Nintendo still wants no part of it.

    Mobile gaming sucks. Who wants to look at some little 4" (or even 7-10") screen and use wierdo controls. The only thing mobile gaming has going for it's mobile and you can use it to waste time when you don't have access to a real game on a real system.

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
