Apple iPad: Better graphics than Xbox 360 by 2011?

By Alan Ng - Jul 14, 2010

We have an interesting article for you to check out now, especially if you own an Apple iPad. Fishlabs CEO Michael Schade has given a few reasons, why he thinks the Apple iPad might be able to churn out better graphics than the Xbox 360 in a years time.

As reported from VG247, Schade made his comments in a recent interview with Develop titled “Mobile becomes Console”. Better graphics than the 360 though – that is a bit of a long shot don’t you think?

Not according to Schade though. This is what he had to say on the matter: “I think you can expect some time next year to have rendering capabilities on mobile devices superior to the Xbox 360.”

I have to admit, I am having trouble imagining better graphics on the iPad than a home console. He is basically saying that the iPad will be able to churn out better 360 games such as Alan Wake for example.

We want your thoughts on this.

    If the PSP2 can do it, why not. This shouldn't be that much of a problem, considering the low resolution of the device and how powerful mobile graphics and raw horsepower has become. Even the 3DS is putting up some very good visuals times two (3D) in games such as Resident Evil etc. So, yes, I think this can and will be done.

    Well, this is possible… Well, no, not really. iPad 2 beating 360 graphics? Maybe in 2 or 3 years, but this sounds better: iPad 2 graphics ALMOST as good as 360 graphics. I do believe that they will be able to get close… But thats it.

    Silly IPad cant even play flash. Not even an "neat" statement considering the Xbox is closing in on its fifth birthday, and when the IPad and IPhone released and for a while after, Apple was propering just on its IPod. Its hilarious that he thinks that he can make a game on a platform that is restricted so much by its lack of a keyboard or any form of controller. The statement is just a bunch of wishful thinking, and even if he proves me wrong I will be happy for him. He can run around in 2011 saying "Hey we made the IPad be capable of better graphics than a six year old gaming platform"

    Is this a reference to better programming by developers? or just better iPads as they are released?
