Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America recently stated that he is hoping Nintendo does well with the 3DS.
HAHAHAHAHHA THATS BS SONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol jokes Good on ya :)
I don't get what's funny. Sony is hoping Nintendo's 3DS will help them push 3D into mainstream.
...Sony is hoping it does well because the PSP2 will probably have 3D as well and that will indicate to Sony that 3D will be well received by the masses. Sony wants people to accept 3D so they can sell their 3D TVs and the PSP2 which I'm assuming will have 3D. I can't imagine it not having 3D.
im still not sure about 3d gaming i haven't experience it yet so i dont have an any feelings on it but im looking fwd to seeing what happens
It does well, 3D gets pushed further. It doesn't do so well, PSP2, or whatever, gets a crack at the market. You win, you win. You lose, you win. It's a win for them either way.
If that's the case, Sony should learn from Nintendo: 3D WITHOUT GLASSES. Thank you Nintendo.
That's true, BUT you have to keep this in mind: 3-4" screens with the 3D built in (no glasses) is ALOT cheaper than a 40-60" tv screen would be comparably. It would cost 5-6000 dollars or more for like a 40" 3D TV that doesn't require glasses as compared to a 40" 3D TV that does use the glasses that only costs like $2000. The reason why Sony doesn't want to use glasses-less 3D yet comes down to the price. Simple.
Don't forget that the glasses-less 3D screens have terrible viewing angles. No one but those sitting directly in front of the television would be able to see the picture. No glasses 3D is a failed concept as a TV. It makes sense as a small, personal screen, however.
Clearly Sony wants 3D to succeed and the 3DS will only improve public mindshare and desire for 3D in the home. Also I might add, Sony is curious if the handheld gaming market is still viable. Nintendo recently admitted Apple was more of a competitor than Microsoft in the moblile market (and games period). I assume that Sony is equally concerned with the iPhone/iTouch and its success with games. If the 3DS cannot compete with HD mobile games than it will be hard for Sony to compete as well. The PSP Phone makes a lot of sense if you follow my logic.
Basically the same thing that happen with the Wii and motion controls Sony wants that to happen with 3d. Only this time Sony has been helping push 3d gaming since day one.
its who comes foward and actually does it and makes the big step and that costs alot hundreds of millions and risk u are talking rubbish nintendo bought motion controls to gaming not sony with the eye toy that wasnt motion gaming it was a joke that no 1 bothered with u need buttons 4 hardcore games end of nintendo 1st to bring 3D no glasses gaming to the world even if psp2 came out in jan2011 they just copied nintendo make moves sony just follow
cant u guys read? honestly tell me why i got disagrees hmm thought so, no one reads n e more
get use to the fanboys man
You can't do a 3D TV without glasses though the 3DS 3D effect is done with trickery that simply can't be done right now on a modern TV. However Sony are hoping people like playing 3D games that much they will want it on there console too.
The start of a beautiful relationship? Probs not.
i Think Sony has actually said that they wouldn't mind teaming up or working with Nintendo to help Push 3D forward
You know I had heard that when the Wii and PS3 launched, Sony and Nintendo both sent a couple of crates full of their consoles to the other company to play with. Kind of a "Good Luck, Have Fun" gesture. Just because they are competitors doesn't mean they have to hate eachother. The Nintendo 3DS will spark attention for 3D and Sony has a stake in the home television market. Yes Sony does have a handheld to compete with Nintendo but I think Sony will be going down a different path to Nintendo. The PSP delivered a different experience to the DS so I don't see what would change with the 3DS and the PSP2. They will deliver experiences unique to themselves.
When sony likes Nintendo, you follow. When sony despises and mocks Nintendo, you follow.. LOL, fanboys!!
cheer up charizo sony might be nice and let nintendo use bluray next time round :)
more ppl buy a 3ds then they look at a 3d tv with sony's name on it and go ooo i want it dood.
They will wait 4 the wii2 that will support no glasses/glasses 3D yes big 32inch/37inch leds are on the way in early 2012 and even earlier off toshiba late 2011 so wii2 mid 2012 that suppoert the same as the 3DS no glasses 3D but will also dupport no glasses 3D also HD is a must to make 3D image watchable so HD/3D =Wii2
go back to school man, your writing is horrible!
Stay Classy :)
Just like Dudley. :)
And if you read the article, he basically praises the fact that it's 3D, which could lead to more interest in other 3D product like Sony's.
The 3DS does well too. I might actually pick it up.
People forget, just because they're fanboys doesnt mean the companies are. Theres a term for something thats mutually benificial. Its called Win Win. If M$ had a better attitude maybe they would have helped push Bluray and this generation would have been all the better for it.
exactly if they didnt have the hate and supported blu-ray from the start on the 360. It would still have a HD disc add-on on the market.
Good sportsmanship :)
3D gaming will be more acceptable as soon as it's more affordable.The 3D experience is really fun,but a bit over priced right now.And with the glasses-less 3D Tv's coming out soon it's going to be hard to keep up with this technology.
I think you have it backwards darkcharizard.I don't ever remember Sony ever despising or mocking Nintendo or vice versa. Just because you disagree with the person's methods or give them a jab now and again doesn't mean I despise you.I think it's Microsoft your talking about. It's only them I see openly mocking and predicting the other systems failure.Just because I am you rival doesn't mean we are not friends. People used to think Marvel and DC people hated each other but they actually interacted with each other and were good friends.
Sony was angry at Nintendo when they cancelled their disk add on for the SNES right before the announcement. Sony was working on a disk add on for the SNES, but nintendo cancelled it at the last minute. That's the only noteable conflict I know of between the two companies. They otherwise seem to be in good standing.
Sony has mocked ninty before and on more than one occasion. then again all companies do it and have done so before. dunno about ninty maybe they did but against sega when they were relevant?
It's important for Sony to see 3D succeed at the mainstream level because at the end of the day, Sony's a hardware company with a wide array of manufacturing portfolios, few more important than televisions and 3D ones at that. It's also worth noting that Apple's Iphone/Ipod touch entry into the market has shifted consumer expectations to more of casual (albeit depth-lacking) 99c perspective that, purely objectively, threatens hardcore portable gaming as a whole. This really is not a fanboy mantra but a basic acknowledgment. Sony and Nintendo share a mutual enemy and threat and face it together. It is not surprising that this kind of scenario would bring them together out of the necessity of rooting out a common danger.
It will. :)
I'm positive 3DS will be the best selling new piece of hardware of next year, if only because of the strength of the software lineup and the prospect of 3D without having to wear glasses.
they actually don't need to hope... seriously, a nintendo handheld, it will surely do well...
considering the graphics on the 3DS are as good (if not better in some aspects) than the Wii, its gonna be an awesome handheld. and 3D will add to it.
