Faithful listener here. Keep up the great show. I wanted your opinion on something.
I have been using a Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 for the last year (I bought it before the Nexus 7 came out). I just saved up for a Nexus 7 as I want that pure android and nexus experience right out of the box. I was hoping this past Google I/O was going to announce an updated version coming out which I was going to pull the trigger on, but it never happened.
What’s your take on buying the current Nexus 7 now? It still seems to be the top 7 inch android device. (I did look into a iPad mini as I could have used it for reviews also for the iOS blog I contribute to, but the bang for the buck and features is definitely with the Nexus 7. I use iOS still on my original iPad, but I Iike the mini size).
An article you may want to go over in tonight’s Simulcast: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-sony-mandates-vita-remote-play-for-ps4-games
Sony have confirmed that almost all PS4 games must be able to be remotely played in the Vita, unless they require extra hardware (such as the PS Eye or other peripherals).
It’s a bit like what the Wii U was trying to do with the larger game pad, but this will be for virtually every game. It should be good for a) people who regularly fight over watching TV or playing games and b) for Sony shifting Vitas.
Slight advantage Sony? Roll on E3!
