    Tegra 3 only?!?!? So all of us that got shiny new phones with Tegra 2 in 2011 or in my case early 2012 and bought Shadowgun, are pretty much just screwed untill our 2 contract is up and we can upgrade to Tegra 4? This is the reason mobile will never stop consoles. Buy a console your good to go, buy a smartphone or tablet and they have something better on the market in 30-60 days.
