While Nintendo has already laid out their plan for the 3DS, the PSP2's path remains hidden. Based on what we know so far, who will end up winning this round of the handheld war?
As always, I will buy both. N64 and PS1, Gamecube and PS2, PS3 and Wii, DS and PSP...3DS and PSP2. I'm a big fan of both Nintendo and Sony, and so that I don't miss any of the great titles and features they bring with each new hardware they release, I'll be buying both on day one.
Agreed. Eat that stupid fanboys. I'll probably purchase the 3DS first(since i already have it preordered:Dec27th) Thursday is gonna be a big day. I'm "really" curious to see what Sony is going to bring to the table. If its just hd graphics and 2 analogs...then meh. Only time will tell...
What?!"only 2 analogs"That would be the best thing to happen to handhelds. What does the 3DS bring?3D.Something no one cared about,then suddenly it's the same old crap. It's good now Ninty have done it and in 5 years time they'll have invented it. How about we wait until we've seen the PSP2? The jury is still out. This article is nonsense comparing a console weeks away to one we haven't even seen.
I sorry you feel that way./s "What does the 3DS bring?3D.Something no one cared about,then suddenly it's the same old crap." I also sorry you're a nobody. Does anyone care about "you"?
Ill try to get both eventually.... But the only games that seem to interest me on the 3DS are mostly first party games. Ill buy it when Pokemon comes out, and that wont probably be for a while since Black/White comes out this year.
The more I think about it the more I'm leaning towards the psp2 just simply because of the dual analog. It just seems like a machine geared towards the games that I will like.
Definitely buying both. I will buy the 3DS for the missus and borrow it. If it proves to be too much fun I'll buy another. PSP 2 is a sure winner. I have so many PSN minis and Playstation 1 games, both purchased and from PSN plus, I will have to get one. I've been playing games on my Droid a lot more lately as free time is lacking at the moment to play fully featured console games. Dedicated handhelds should help in this regard as gaming on cell phones is only fun for so long :-p
How about we get all info before we make these articles? Maybe at least when the hardware specs are announced...
Dude, these psp2 spec are obvious, come on...we are in 2011... every single smartphone will have that, even more specs than what the psp2 will cary for the next 5 years, so what is the big deal on recognizing it? With these psp2 spec, it is easyly a Psp2 > 3DS for me, but as optical matrix wrote, both are coming sure
It is NOT obvious it is pure conjecture until Sony releases the info officially.
Dude...I can pretty much name you a couple of handheld smartphone that outperform the psp2 in its rumors state...why wouldn't sony knowing they are up to catch a fight for around 5 years or more, make the psp2 that powerful or even more?...No rocket science homie. And screw that guy saying bullshit of 3DS winning it all up, altho I think it will hence the release date it is having, but further, psp2 look way more appealing to me than any portable gaming device ever, just by thinking of playing ps2 games on it kill it raw.
It talks about that in the article. While this is only speculation, based on previous leaks by Sony these PSP2 leaks can be pretty reliable.
They are both completely different machines. Im getting both, I dont want to miss out on the fun just because Im an ignorant sony or nintendo fanboy and only get one
When time and/or money is limited, one would have to prioritize. There are people who love games but can't afford to play every game they like. Hence, the circumstance drives them to pick and choose, and that doesn't make them any less of a gamer than you and me. Generalization and mockery of people having a different opinion may make one feel superior, but others will only look at him/her as an ignorant snob. However, such an article is pointless as there are not enough factual evidences to draw any reasonable conclusions nor to form sound opinions on the matter. The new DS's 3D capability is yet to be proven. It could be a novelty to some but a 3D cliche to others. The new PSP's existence hasn't been confirmed, and its specifications are just rumors and speculations. Marvelous it may be! A major flop, too, a possibility! PS: I should watch less of "The Big Bang Theory" lol.
Getting one and not the another does not mean your a fanboy. Like I said before I am NOT interested in the 3DS. I do know people who are getting day one but its not for me. The PSP2 is more my style.
Something announced vs. speculation... But seriously: if the PSP2 has great games at launch, I’ll get one right away. As far as the 3DS goes, I’ll most likely get one when Oot and/or Kid Icarus comes out.
So a blog is a news article now? The 3ds is sold out in japan and almost sold out here.................. by preorders alone..........
Something that hasn't been release yet cannot be sold out.
PSP 2 ftw.
I'll get both eventually. Which I get first depends on the PSP2's launch line-up. If it's weak I'll wait it out, at the same time I won't buy a 3DS until I see a decent game that isn't a remake of an N64 game.
Resident Evil Revelations or Metal Gear Solid 3 looks good
Nintendo 3DS all the way. Nintendo owns the handheld market. Their first and third party support on handhelds is unmatched. I had a PSP once but I sold it because there were absolutely no good games for it. I'm sure Sony means well, but they should leave hand held gaming devices to the pro's, same with Motion controls.
I seriously question your intelligence. The 3DS is a cheap gimmick working on old technology that leaves for no flexibility. 1)The moment you tilt the device the affect vanishes leaving you with a DS that you paid twice the price for. 2)The moment you actually decide to use the 3D feature the battery dies. 3)Same ugly generic clamshell design. 4)Old Wireless technology meaning no improved portability. I can go on
I question your intelligence as well. Your going to be missing out on great games because you think its "ugly" or it doesnt have 3g connectivity. I see there is no point in arguing with you since I can clearly see you are irrational
oh yeah, youre right, you need to be centered to be able to see the 3D effect, yet doesnt the 3DS have motion sensing as well? so you would be tilting the device sideways and losing the 3D effect....adding another thing on the list for 3DS...:\
Just because N4G is filled with Sony fanboys doesn't make me stupid for wanting to go with the handheld leader of the last 20+ years. I much prefer the Nintendo 1st party games on a handheld then any Sony made 1st party game. Nintendo will always win the handheld market and support their products. I truly believe Sony is trying to tell people what they want instead of listening to what they want. If some of the specs are accurate on the PSP2, then your looking at a possible $300 or more piece of hardware. Also, I doubt Sony learned anything from the epic fail that was the PSP Go, so yea, no PSP2 for me. Nintendo does it right, I'll stick with them.
A tad early, aren't we?
I know. It's not like we know much about the 2 yet.
I'm a Tech guy....so PSP2 for me. I want the latest and greatest gadget available.
PSP2 for certain, because its use will extend well beyond gaming. The UK launch lineup for the 3DS is... 9 games, only 4 with 3D, and of those, only one is even remotely interesting to me. I won't be picking up a 3DS until some serious software is available, and until the reviews of what is available, are in. I actually wonder if the 5 "non 3D" games will be playable on the DSi as well.
Every game on 3DS has 3D. Just because the title doesn't say 3D doesn't mean it has no 3D. where the hell do you get your facts.
I got it from N4G, actually. Here's a direct link: http://www.justpushstart.co... "The biggest issue with this launch so far is the fact that only four 3D games will be available day one" There ya go bud.
Unconfirmed or Unreleased?
PSP2 for me as I haven't had a Nintendo handheld since the original gameboy. But I must say the 3DS looks appealing even though 3D is a gimmick and I will turn it off if I ever get a 3DS.
Why bother getting them at launch? In three months they'll each have a new "slim" version any way.
I need to see what the PSP2 is all bout, but I`m pretty sure it`s going to be way more amazing than the 3DS. I`m not getting either right away though, too many other games.
with these portables now costing as much as consoles, it will take me a while to get either one of them :-/
psp2 all day sick of Nintendo releasing the same old games ppl need new ips every once and a while not rehashes..
That's what i say, but if you say that they'll think you are hating or you are a blind fanboy. But the truth is even going back to the gameboy advance the majority of those games were ports and rehashes when you're the psp theres no way you can compete with that. And when you do the same they will tear you apart for it, which is hypocritical if you ask me. 9 launch itles for the 3DS keep in mind only 5 will make use of the infamous 3D screen. PSp2 will have no games according to most of these articles and fanboys. Because Sony wont make any games or pay for there to be good games on the platform either...sarcasm.
I always liked the PSP better, theres way better hacks for it than Nintendo. Hopefully PSP2 will be as easy to hack. The 3DS looks like a toy lol kids game.
I'll be getting both, but I'd get a PSP2 when a game that interests me comes out. 3DS I'll get right away, not really any launch games I like from what I've seen, but I can't find my DSi right now so I figure why not lol Tho I'd more so lean on the 3DS mainly because I'm so looking forward to a remake of FF6 in 3D and play it like FF7 style in a 3D world. I'd also hope to see a FF7 remake on the PSP2 for its hardware ^^
S-E already stated that remaking FF7 would cost approximately 10 gazillion moneys, in every currency. Something about the detail in all the prerendered scenes having to be brought to life in a remake...
ffvii will be a launch game for the ps4 i have come from the future
I'll wait for the inevitable 3DS "Lite" before I get one. I really want one, but I know probably like 6 months after it releases, a Lite version would be coming. Seeing the significant rumors of the PSP2 having 3G and OLED screen and some monster specs, I bet that thing will be quite pricey. If the 3DS is $250, the PSP2 will be at least $300. I REALLY want to get both of them, but there's no way I'm paying that much. I'll wait a little bit for price drops.
I would most likely be getting the psp2, i like my devices to have as many functionality as possible, specially if its something i am going to be paying over 130 for. So far they say the 3DS has like 9 games? only a few in 3D, and the psp2, according to these articles has no games. Which Sony i am is just standing by waiting for the system to sell itself lol.jk Well if i don't get the psp2 this year than ill get it the next, i am sure it wont kill me to miss the launch. Although ive never missed a PlayStation launch either, and no, no, i've never camped out or waited in long lines ever. This year there are quite a few things on my shopping list which mainly pertains ps3 games like...Killzone 3, infamous 2, motorstorm apocalypse, socom 4, resistance 3, uncharted 3, last guardian and so for.. I am not too big on multiplats, but if the games prove worthy i might look into them.
personally I'll get the PSP2 first and wait for the forced upgrade to the 3DS or if I see the 3D pictures are worth it and the games are good
PSP2 for me as well. I know it will not dissappoint. All I hope is that it doesn't hurt my wallet too much :(. I made a Thread on VGChartz about what I think the PSP2 should/could have... http://gamrconnect.vgchartz...
psp 2 4 life
PSP2 at launch, 3DS once Snake Eater is available.
I've always been a Playstation fan, so its PSP2 for me. If they start porting games between the two handhelds, then i wont bother with the 3DS.
Probably PSP 2. Entertainment, Graphics, Core Games, probably will be included PSN Service, 3G Tech is Confirmed for PSP 2, OLED Display. PSP 2 then.
All depends on who gives me Monster Hunter first. Sure, it has always been a PSP thing but now that Nintendo has a device capable enough to create such and Capcoms willingness to gain more profit, (understandable) who knows.
i don't know. if people are compiling about the 3DS price, think how high the PSP2 will be. So far for the 3DS, i want to get Mega Man Legends III and thats it, but thats not coming until (rumored) 2012 holiday season
It really bieleve that psp2 it ready by the hardware at least but the reason that make sony not release is that there no ready games for launch day it about time of dev of software things
Both. However, no day 1 purchase, unless price is reasonable and there is some sort of bundle.
There is always a bundle. But a lot of the time they just rip you off with some cheap, plastic travel case or something like that.
Both. Definitely favored PSP over DS with the last systems. But after watching the 3DS videos I dunno anymore. Good hardware, features, and software lineup. Hard to say what Sony can match it with. Getting both regardless just a question of which will get more game buys and play time.
PSP2 seems like something i would get. The problem is we havent even seen it yet so i really cant make a dedision yet.
PSP 2 of course for several obvious reasons are apparent.
Really? What are those "obvious reasons"?
Three Words... 1.Quality 2.Diversity 3.Functionality
I'm not a big fan of handhelds, I have a PSP and a DS, but they were both gifts. If I were to choose one, it would have to be the PSP2 hands down. I like the Sony games much better, even though Ocarina of Time on 3DS is pretty cool along with MGS3.
If you don't have to, why choose one? If you can only choose one, why hate on the other?
Depends how the analog sticks work for me. If they aren't responsive and the games control like the PSP, I'll take a pass.
If The Rumours Are True For PSP2 Then Wow, They Will Rape 3DS
just like how they destroyed the ds ..... .. . oh wait a min
[insert favorite device here] ftw!
the PSP2 isn't even shown to the public, how can we compare they? wait until they both are launched before doing this kind of articles...
3DS will win because it is the simpler system, and it is from nintendo, so it will sell well.
