1up - As we approach the Wii U launch, Sony's not being shy about its imitation.
This is just Low.
Agreed. Sony showed LBP2 being played with the Vita at the very E3 that revealed the Wiiu... and BEFORE the Wiiu was announced.
vita playsttion 3 does not equal to wii u when will people understand this. wii tablet doesnt even support multi touch
why do we even care what the western gaming media thinks, and says anymore? professionalism is an extreme lost art for them.
for trying hard... I wonder what they'll do next. I can take a guess
So are we ignoring games like Four sword and FF:Crystal chronicles on the gamecube?
The gaming media of today always try to reverse the chicken and egg story. Remember Sony showed the NGP PS3 dual screen remote play feature first. It was a feature too good to be passed by Nintendo & M$. we still have low life writers these days?
1up hans't been a good site for a long time now, I use to viset them years ago but they are just full of fail now.
Very funny 1up.
Why is this low? Sony would be stupid not to show Vita's capabilities and exploit its ability to play with the Playstation 3. It will be a tough sell mind you since what most people want for their investment is support. http://www.game-modo.com/20... Let's hope things improve but seeing as how the Playstation 3 is nearing the end of its cycle there's not going to be much hype for this feature. I fully expect the Playstation 4 to trounce the Wii U but for now the Wii U will have the upper hand as far as game support and how well the Gamepad works with the hardware as opposed to the Vita and Playstation 3.
He means that the website has reached an all-time low, by openly trying to incite a flame war. And 3.....2.....1.... ! Snake? Snake? SNAAAAAAAKKKKKEEEE?!
@HammadTheOne I could actually hear the http://www.youtube.com/watc... Lmao
So is this one step of whats to come?
is it just me or has the vita already been launched months ago with the very idea of showcasing this kind of tech? Sure it wasn't at launch but the conception of the vita interacting with the PS3 proves the existence of the tech and the idea behind it....I could be mistaken.
The tech was first shown years ago on the PSP, it didn't take off at the time though
Really, it started back with the Game Boy Advance, just not very well. I was dissapointed with the PSP's remote play feature I thought it was such a good idea but nothing was done with it. Looks like the Vita's fixing it though.
You´re both right!
This is the thing, Sony has done a great job with hardcore gamer's, will those gamer's adopt this approach? Hardcore Nintendo fans wont switch from Nintendo's consoles, they like the Nintendo IP's. I like cross play, I've liked it ever since Zelda Four Swords on the GBA/GCN. I'm just saying that this version of crossplay isn't spelling doom for Wii U. Not sure why when there is a similar idea shown , people freak out and think its doom for Nintendo. When Move was announced people said the Wii was doomed, when the Vita was announced people said the 3DS was doomed. I think there are enough gamer's that each of the new consoles will find a level of success.
Chill out, this is years old from PSP days. Why so insecure about Nintendo? They don't seem worried.
I'm not insecure about Nintendo, I think they are going to light it up this holiday with the Wii U. I want to grab at least two, one for personal use and one for Ebay, hoping to get a cool $1200-1400 for one like I did with the original Wii.
Are we pretending that GBA-GC connectivity was good enough to brag about now and that it's somehow the same exact thing? lol
Wasn't this shown before the Wii U was announced?. He's either a poor troll or completely clueless.
Buying my second vita! I also going to buy the wii U :) But i like sony more! Everyone sees sony as the big evil company.. However , their first party support is superb! I love sony<3 I think microsoft is dropping the ball of the big three ( They have a lot more money)
Nintendo and Sony are my favs.. but this gen Nintendo dropped the ball imo, The DS was good tho.
can everyone relaxe? everyone is going to take some idea from someone else and iterate it into their own idea. look at tablets. look at movies. look at cars. EVERYTHING takes SOMETHING from somewhere else and tries to make it their own. Some people/companies are just better at seeming original. some people want the wii u experience but don't like nintendo so they have sony. some people hate sony and nintendo or dont want to buy their products so they have microsoft. its all business.
"everyone is going to take some idea from someone else and iterate it into their own idea" That's true, but people are angry because the article at hand is saying that Sony has stolen an idea from Nintendo- which they haven't. I won't stant for this sort of talk about my Sony, i wont, i just wont...*runs upstairs*
haha i love sony. i personally consider them my favorite! i have a vita and i love it but im not a rabid fan. I know what you mean though! Sony just found another use for their handheld. it isn't their fault it closely resembles nintendos formula.
I´m kinda a rabid fan ;o)
I meant *STAND* Curse you, 15 minute edit limit. @ Protagonist Me too, i even foam at the mouth, at times.
This is flamebait for PlayStation fans and Nintendo fans.
You don't say. Sickening flaimbait.
All I can see with this is Sony telling us to spend over £400 on a PS3 and Vita for a feature that's hardly ever gonna get used, well in this generation at least. Were as the Wii U has it built in from start and every game can benefit from its features. This is the problem I see with newer tech being add to old tech like the Wii Motion Plus and PS Move. The reason Motion Plus hardly has any games for it is due to developers taking a complete shot in the dark not knowing how many people actually have the add on to play the game. And it's the same for PS Move and why it's mainly an add on feature for major titles rather than a solo feature.
i agree about that. boo ps move. had it. hated it.
Who is "us?" DO you not already have a PS3? If not, then you're missing out, and spending that money would get you TWO gaming systems- not just one- each with unique and cross-compatible libraries of games. But there are roughly 50-60 million other people(adjusted for defective systems and multiple system owners) who already have a PS3; they only need to buy a Vita. And then they get all this great stuff. Every game CAN benefit from this feature on Sony devices- in this world of internet and patches- but they won't. Every game CAN benefit from the WiiU's features, but they won't. (We already know this from the fact that some games will only use the Classic Pro or whatever they call it, and presumably some will only use the Wiimote.) What Sony's telling "us" is that "If you have our two devices, you can do a helluva lot of stuff, including what these guys over here can do. And you've still got two devices that can work on their own." I don't understand why people keep bringing up the "You have to buy two devices" angle as if millions don't already have at LEAST a PS3. Nor can I figure out why they forget how, even if you DID have to buy both, you're getting two systems that can operate independently of each other. Or that you can't take the tablet of the WiiU to the next city over and still play the WiiU games you have at home. It's like they see one negative and forget EVERY positive and possible positive so that the one bad thing will be the most important, and therefore a reason NOT to buy, be supportive, or be excited.
