TegraZone Looks So Much Sexier in Windows RT

Illustration for article titled TegraZone Looks So Much Sexier in Windows RT

I'm so used to writing about Tegra-powered Android devices that I'd completely overlooked Windows tablets and laptops powered by Nvidia's game-enhancing mobile processor. The blocky Windows RT TegraZone app is here to remind me.

Along with adopting Microsoft's deep abiding love for squares and rectangles, the TegraZone app of Windows RT collects a number of games enhanced for play with the quad core Tegra 3 processor in one easy-to-navigate app. Judge Dredd vs Zombies, Pinball FX 2, Reckless Racing Ultimate, Riptide GP, Soulcraft, Space Ark, Sprinkle and Vendetta Online and more are available for purchase and play within the TegraZone, making it an excellent place for new Windows RT device owners to find game that push their fresh tech to its limits.

It's also an indicator that I'm going to have to add a Windows RT tablet to my arsenal to keep up with this growing segment of the mobile gaming scene. Thanks a lot, Nvidia.

DISCUSSION

I don't get it, it makes zero sense to get a windows rt device, no?

If one wants just a tablet experience, so no laptop/desktop applications one should get an iPad or Nexus 7, cause these at least have great app eco systems far larger than the windows rt apps amount. If one wants a device to run all proper desktop/laptop (x86) applications and games one should get a windows (7 or 8 pro) pc or a mac.

(Or maybe a good windows 8 pro tablet once it comes out)

There's really no sense at all in getting Windows RT anything.

(The devices running it don't even have great battery life which would be the only thing advocating ARM chipsets (which can't run x86 desktop applications and games) over intel/ arm x86 chipsets).

Also: Any user interface where one has to scroll sidewards when using it with mouse and keyboard is the worst idea.

Not understandable at all why MS didn't at least give the option of allowing scrolling upwards/downwards instead of sidewards by changing the layout direction when clearly using a mouse and keyboard.

Also: Machines also used like laptops are bad if they can't run all plugins and extensions in a browser.

Overall: If MS doesn't address at least most of those things properly it will be a huge fail by MS standards and no tegra zone something will help there to change that.
