As much as I liked the topic of the article, I have to disagree heavily with the statement saying mobile is catching up to console quickly. This is as far from the truth as it can get, mobile phones and tablets simply do not have the bandwidth to even come remotely close to consoles. Mobile phones use shrunken parts to save on power while consoles don't so they have much more power. this is the very reason desktop pc's always destroy laptops with similar specs, while some laptops can play mostly all pc games, they almost never perform as well as the desktop. Keep in mind, benchmarks don't mean a device will perform better or worse than another device, it only shows the processor power that can be utilized. oh and I likethat 600Gflops difference between the Xbone and Ps4, it proves my point about bandwidth being the Xbone and Ps4 have very similar hardware, the Ps4 simply has mucher better memory configuration.
