We heard the stories. They reverberate through internet. If they are true, iPhone5 will have an A5 chip, a semiconducting material that offers two times performance boost in the smart phone, thereby enabling the user to play video games of any kind. But iPhone5 is not alone in the market. There’s another one that is competing for the same goal, a rival that is in fact considered the reigning King Daddy of smart phone video games — the Sony Xperia Play.
When the next generation iPhone entered the market, enthusiasts cannot help feeling excited. Not only because they want to try out some of the games, but they also want to see which of the two leading brands has the upper hand when it comes to Operating System and processor. It is rumored that Apple built iPhone5 with the best parts in the industry. Perhaps the reason being that smart phone war is likely to happen. But the conflict is not limited between brands. It has spilled over into the minds of users.
The rage between two camps is evident on the internet. One group would talk disparagingly about the other group. iPhone5 enthusiasts would claim that their chosen brand is the only one on the market that could provide the same entertainment experience as Xperia Play.
But the latter is not convinced, saying that it is impossible to achieve amazing heights of fun with non-gaming physical buttons. In fact, Xperia Play attributes much of its success as a premier gaming and mobile console to its knobs, with which a lot of customers are fascinated.
Xperia Play followers added that although iPhone5 is incredible when it came out with a touchscreen and an A5 chip, that doesn’t make the device qualified for gaming, because with constant rubbing of finger across the monitor there is a tendency to mess up the game. All these, however, remain a theory until Apple’s newest smart phone arrives. Experts and gaming gurus cannot come to a verdict yet.
They have to experience first what it feels like to kill the enemies in games like Guerilla Bob and Nova 2. They say these games, among other things, are difficult to play on a touchscreen smart phone. But gamers know that there is still a hint of satisfaction, and they want to be sure of how much it would be with iPhone5. Although deep inside they know playing without knobs and joysticks is somewhat incomplete, because some of the cheats lie in them.
Sony might have dug up a treasure in Xperia Play with its remarkable design both inside and out, but Apple has earned its reputation as the world’s overall leading brand. And that means there is always something to be excited about, something that other brands have not achieved, something that could make others obsolete.
