After Sony’s reveal of the NGP (Next Generation Portable) or PSP2 yesterday. People were amazed by how much power Sony put into this little device. Compared to the PSP2, the 3DS looks like a kids toy.
Only a matter of time before an article with todays favourite phrase came along.
Wouldn't be surprised.
Comment 3.2.1 - See here: http://n4g.com/news/688508/... Then again, it was an obvious one.
Next there will be and article called "EPIC FAIL"
totaly pwned,this new psp thing is a total monster!!!
Im saying this to sony right now. AFFORDABLE. That is the reason why you lost half your base to microsoft. I bought a 360 because I didnt have that much money to lay down on a ps3, as much as I wanted it. I had to get it 3 years later. Same with the NGP. I want it bad but if its not affordable... how do I tell this to sony? We need to put it into there noggins that 500 dollars isnt an affordable handheld.
3 words GET A JOB
Have a job. Im just stating facts here. If they dont want another ps3 launch they need to take this advice. Im serious how do I tell them
one has glasses free 3d though..... >_>
3D is good if it is used with good graphics not so good with Gamecube graphics. 3D is the next step for HD not SD.
I'm glad they didn't add glasses free 3D to the PSP2 since that would increase the price by another £100 or so which would be far too much.
But all the Features from NGP > 3D.
Also has a time restriction on how long u can play it though... Just think about it... If they recommend us to not watch our computer monitors for no more than 1-2 hrs. per session... How much play time do u think ur gonna get on the 3ds?!?!
It recommends time restriction, theres no built in kill switch.... Now im feeling i really should have added my "/s" to my previous post... >_> Silly people, im not a 3D junkie!
Lol what a joke. 3DS will be the better handheld no doubt.
A bit ironic isn't it since the article title says the opposite. And you seem to agree with it =/...
It's too early to say, with the PS.suite PSP can have access to lots of andriod apps, which is all the rage these days. Plus touchscreen means DS like games. They have all their bases covered. -Android Games ($1) -PSN quality ($10) -Psudo Casual(DS like) ($20-30) -PSP quality ($30-40) -almost PS3 quality ($40-50)
Player X may be according to sales charts. But that is not why the Dreamcast is revered. NGP is for ME that is for sure. 3D would have been nice. But this is what I want out of a handheld. PSN migration, BC to PSP PSN titles which is hundreds playable out the gate. The feature set is too much to list. Look this is not trying to convince anyone but understand the excitement when you have a portable 360 or PS3 in your pocket. Go read what Carmack said about the device let alone that shooters can be replicated on this device. This may get the most play out of any console yet. Washroom breaks never smelled so good.
how so? by just having 3d? GTFO
NGP: Nintendorks Getting Paranoid
Joke? Someone is on damage control.. I would feel threatened too.. The psp was a darn good handheld in it's own rights but you add a 5" OLED screen, multi-touch, track pad, android based operating functions, playlive, powerful new processor, trophies, and the playstation library of quality developers is a combination that nintendo is going to have a hard time dealing with..
"the 3DS looks like a kids toy" ...what... Same was said about the NDS, and it had a far superior Game Library compared to the PSP. People like that guy, and the ones agreeing with his nonsense, are like the cancer of the industry. STFU and enjoy gaming! this isn't about your pathetic manhood.
You Mean Shovelware
You Mean the years Sony didnt even care about PSP or make quality games like DS. I think you do XD
Best Abbreviation Ever!!
Title make no sense the Original PSP trumps the Ds in all categories and still does..."it's not the Hardware stupid"
3DS is going to totally destroy PSP2 or whatever it is called in sales. This thing is going to cost at least 400 bucks which will price it out of the mainstream audience. In fact, I think this thing will be less successful sales wise than the PSP because it will be so pricey. Seriously, Sony made a bad move here. Nintendo you can start counting your millions of dollars again because you just have another portable generation in your hip pocket.
OMG I Forgot, You Have Shares In Nintendo You Rich Man, You Have Every Right To Care About Sales /Sarcasm
You seem to care a lot about sales and the 3DS beating the new PSP because you just have to comment on anyone pointing out the obvious truth about it.
Its good to know you have the inside scoop on how sony is pricing the psp2.. YOu almost made me care...
I love how this article is 100% biased. Nintendo hasn't been pwned or ANYTHING yet. We don't have the PSP2's price range. The price alone could kill this thing faster than Lindsay Lohan's career went down the drain.
The only thing getting pwned is the wallets of NGP buyers (one being myself) It's going to most likely cost between $299-$399 for this thing. Unless your a hardcore gamer and have a job, I can't imagine many people getting this for christmas, most especially compared to the slightly cheaper 3DS this holiday season. It's obvious NGP has a high edge in specs compared to the 3DS (like the Wii vs PS3) but in terms of sales, Nintendo will still come out on top, and to a company thats all what matters, but it's nice to have an option for Super hardcore gaming on NGP or hardcore/casual on the 3DS. PS: Even tho the PSP had great specs compared to the DS, look how that turned out, the DS was not "pwned" in the end.
"People were amazed by how much power Sony put into this little device. Compared to the PSP2, the 3DS looks like a kids toy." How people have such short memories. When the first PSP was announced and the specs revealed, it BLEW AWAY the DS in every way shape and form. PSP graphics made the DS look like the first Gameboy almost..AND the PSP1 had so much more features than the DS. How many people said the PSP1 would destroy the DS? Look what happened. Hell look at history of console and hand-held gaming. Never. Not EVER has a console OR and especially a hand held "won" a generation because of power and graphics. Not once. It comes down to games and price and dev support. This is why its so imperative that Sony make the PSP 2 price affordable to the 3DS so game developers make a wide selection of titles for the PSP2 AND not just select hardcore titles. Sony has a real chance here to kick Nintendo IF they price this right. If not, history repeats itself...like the last 30+years of console gaming Remember everyone said the PSP 1 was a monster when it launched...
Ironically, the Super Nintendo would like a word with you.
im a sony fan and will definetly be getting a ngp but i wouldnt say nintendo got pwned whats the bet the 3ds will sell much more then the ngp.3ds ill still be a great handheld and i will still be getting 1 (had it preordered for awhile) but i will perfer npg myself because it just looks amazing !
Sensible comment...thank you. All of this pissing contest of a comment section seems to have missed that. Nintendo has been reigning king of handhelds for 20 years. This won't change because of a beast of a console. Why? Because the average Joe doesn't know or care about a quad core processor. All they know is Jimmy at school has one. Or, Julie down the street is getting one for her daughter. It's mind-share! That being said, I think that this generation of handhelds should be closer than 2 to 1 in terms of sales. I too have an affinity for Sony products and it's just a tough, uphill battle. PSP2 will be like a Porche. Few can afford it, everyone will want it, most will settle for a more affordable option.
I was really interested in the 3DS before the announcement of the NGP. It looks great and will have a pretty good lineup of games, but what Sony's new handheld stands for in terms of gaming evolution is much more significant. The potential compatibility between PS3 and NGP is exciting indeed! No 3D doesn't bother me, as 3D wasn't the main reason I was interested in 3DS to begin with. I can only afford one, and it will have to be NGP.
I don't understand something, the only person who mentioned something about ps3 compatiblity was hideo kojima and he never mentioned it like a feature but something he would like to see, and now everyone is acting like it's already there...
Sony fanboys are like that. They need to justify it in some way even if that way does not exist.
I can't wait to see some original games (non-ps3 games). I wanna now what devs are gonna do with all those features exclusively for Sony NGP. OLED.....droool....
The NGP (PSP2) looks absolutely fantastic, and I will definitely be getting one. But honestly, the same thing was said when the PSP was revealed. "DS got owned". And it'll probably turn out the same way. I'm 100% certain the 3DS will vastly outsell the NGP, due to current trends and price and other factors. With the 3DS being $250, the NGP will be at LEAST $300, most likely $350. I mean...that's a lot of money...especially in today's economy, it will be a tough sell. Nintendo already has an enormous handheld install base with the DS, people will flock to the 3DS.
i dont know the price of a ps3 in us seeing as im not from there but im guessing that the ngp will not be more then that maybe even but not more wouldnt make much sense
yeah to bad Nintendo puts out a handheld every 6 months. Sony better have a 10 year plan with this like the ps3 cause the psp topped out way to early
Hahahaha omg, how can fanboys be so blind??? There are four types of psp (1000,2000,3000 and Go) and also 4 models of Ds over the same time period, I even think the Ds came out 1 st which means longer lifespan ..
There are just as many PSP models as DS models. Too bad some people would prefer to remain ignorant and not bother to know wtf they are talking about. Oh well troll on fool
yeah cause the name gameboy has only been around since the DS.
Well, as we've seen play out time and again, better hardware doesn't always mean more success. I really hope that Sony has the games and features to back this up. If they start moving their PS3 lineup over that's going to be a great start.
Looks like everyone has hopped on their Sony Pony to come to the defense of the No Games Portable. I won't buy either but it's no surprise that Nintendo will dominate with the 3DS. Better graphics didn't help the PSP & it won't help the NGP. I mean they expect me to carry around a handheld that's bulkier than the original PSP? If anything I would buy the 3DS as it has games that I can't already play on my PS3 & PSP.
What's new?! Nintendo always gets pwnd.... When it comes to hardware specs. But Nintendo's systems sells because of their game selection for it's fan base and it's cheaper price.
Not really . N64 was more powerful than PS1 and GC was more powerful than PS2. Now if this is your first gen I can see why you would think that but you might want to take a look back in history and see how wrong you are
Except, the PS1 and 2 wern't bottle necked by laughable media formats.
yeah just like the psp destroyed the DS! The lineup of NGP is superb! If the ps3 is cheaper then the ngp then whats the point?
Its expanding the Playstation Portable Platform! Is the real big news out of this! they are not only releasing a New playstation portable, but also a new Playstation Software platform to boot! at this rate the PSP2 would not have to directly outsell the 3DS , it has a whole new Market to expand their Software sales to put more games on More platform's the Android os first and if Sony also allows the "PLAYSTATION SUITE" to be ported to "ios" an Window's 7 mobile. that will enable the "PLAYSTATION PORTABLE" platform to grow not just as only a Sony playstation only Hardware platform. but an actual Software platform. which it looks to be starting with Android! Remember this hardware is based on the Arm cortex, the Ios is used on an Arm cortex.. Windows 7..once again Arm cortex..an now Windows 8 will be usable on once again for the first Time Microsoft will enable the full Windows OS with full Api's on a Arm cortex processor! Playstation platform enable support for the Arm processor platform look's like a Win ..Win for Sony!
instead of just disagreeing with me to just disagree . please post why..Im very interested to know what i stated that you disagree with.
So obvious that its a fanboy article.
Read the article.
To the person who disagreed with you. I read the article and now i am going to release my opinion and theres nothing you can do about it. The title of the article was misleading i thought it would be a fanboy one. But instead its an aricle describing the design of the PGP. I agree with the author that the NGP looks better designd than the 3DS. Plus the NGP is visually attractive while the 3DS is ugly. If sony releases great games for it and has a alot of 3rd party support then i can see this thing selling easily. I think that this console will have a lot of direct ports of console games cause it is extremely easy to copy and paste a console game over to the NGP. This is something we will not see in the 3DS (unless they are old games) because of the hardware. Plus i am sure that there will be a lot of unique games on the NGP due to the motion controls and touchpad.
The PSP was also more powerful than the DS...so ultimately it's all gonna come down to what matters in the first place - The GAMES !
The PSP was far more powerful than the DS but most people will agree the DS was superior. The DS was all about games which is all that matters. The PSP2 could turn out to be much better, but I don't think it's the right time to be slamming either one of the consoles (The other being the 3DS)
The only thing I'm worried bout is the price tag.
i hope all you fanboys screaming nintendo got pwnd better be there day one to buy NGP, no matter what price sony sets at!
