iPad 2 + Video Mirroring = Game Console
If you plan on getting the iPad 2 (if you can find one in stock) and you’re a gamer, don’t forget to grab the video mirroring cable. But don’t take my word for it, check out this video that shows the huge potential of the iPad 2 to be a game console. Combining the Digital AV Adapter with iPad 2’s video mirroring capabilities outputted to an HDTV gives you a very playable gaming rig.
This video is from YouTube’s TouchArcade, it’s pretty long at about 16 minutes but gives a great overview of the potential here. MacGasm found the video, and they rightly point out that the only thing to make this cooler would be exporting games to an AppleTV wirelessly with AirPort. Until then, spending the $39 on the video cable is the way to go.
