Praise for the new iPad is coming from all corners of the technology world, including big names in the gaming industry.

Mike Capps, president of Epic Games noted that, “Apple is definitely building their devices as if they care a lot about ‘triple-A’ games.”

Triple-A titles are often big budget productions usually found on the more popular consoles such as the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.

Capps believes that Apple can challenge popular home consoles with the addition of a Bluetooth controller used for interacting with the games.

“It is quite easy to imagine a world where an iPad is more powerful than a home console, where it wirelessly talks to your TV and wirelessly talks to your controller and becomes your new console,” Capps said.

Frank Gibeau, president of Electronic Arts’ (EA) labels says his company is also keeping a close eye on the iPad.

“When the iPad gets to the processing power that’s equal to an Xbox 360 and it connects to a television, that’s no big deal to us. We’ll put the game through the iPad and have it display through the television,” Gibeau said.

EA has already released titles on the iPad including “Dead Space”, and Gibeau noted that the iPad is becoming more of a player in the industry. “It used to be, oh hey, it’s just the Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft show, but that’s not the case anymore,” Gibeau concluded.
