Now ibfully realize that hardware-wise, the SGP isn't exactly the most cutting-edge piece of technology on the market, but that's not the point. I was mildly disappointed when trying to play Dead Space the device would frequently slow down to a halt and freeze when multiple enemies showed up on the screen (couldn't get passed chapter 2 as a result). I had no choice but to hard reset the player every time. I then summed it up to the possibility that the SGP perhaps wasn't powerful enough to run the game or games of its caliber properly.
But then just for the heck of it, I installed the same game on my G2 which has the same amount of ram (512) and a slightly inferior processor (800 MHz vs 1 ghz) and the game played flawlessly through chapter 3 (so far) on the G2! So what gives? The G2 and SGP are essentially the same caliber devices with the only major difference being screen size, and yet graphic intensive games appear to play better and smoother on the G2 (other games like Frontline Commando and Overkill fit the description as well). Does anybody know why this is the case?
And for the record, I even cleared memory on the SGP before playing but NOT for the G2.
