GameDynamo - "In an ideal world, you'd just own both devices and be able to take advantage of what each has to offer. But, if you can't have both, a good analysis of their features and software might help you decide."
Good thing Microsoft didn't invest money into a portable gaming product. Keep on with the Kinfail
I think Microsoft probably saw there's to much competition in the Portable market. Apple's iPad & iPhone, Sony's NGP, Nintendo's 3GS and not to mention a ton of smartphones & tablets. The Portable Market is just exploding. Looking forward to seeing the 3DS and NGP in action.
Actually they did with their Windows 7 phone which failed pretty bad. Microsoft got the money, just aint got the marketing brains. You want marketing? Go to Nintendo lol edit: and this is why Sony is great.. cause they fit in the middle, best of both worlds really :p they have KB and some money!
Win phone 7 didn't fail check out all the reviews stating it's better than iOS and Android and over 2 million sold. Anyway why are you trolling in a 3DS vs PSP2 article? keep kissing Sony's behind. On topic, the 3DS is going to kill it in sales, however I would like to see how the PSP2 tech looks in my own hands. it's intriguing.
Well if MS can't get GFWL to do anything, even though the PC is their specialty, i doubt they could do anything with a handheld gaming device.
To tell you the truth Sony actually has a chance win over the casual gamers with the NGP due to the motion sensing and we know that the hardcore crowd is pleased. So I believe this is an even fight. Fight to the end ! or at least until another Kevin Butler ad proving PS's dominance
3ds can motion sense to 0_0 so what your point?
Microsoft made the right move for their company. I see the Playstation suite coming to W7 and don't be suprised if it does and M$ allows it. This is business people. M$ makes software and they should aim to be the OS of choice for mobile phones. It is hard but that is their best option and opportunity. Zune could have been the NGP they just did not want to cater to a specific audience. Sony is catering to ME. Honestly Nintendo is too. I am happy with both companies offerings. Now time to save for both.
NGP Not Gonna Play! lol!
You have to be avery seriously sick troll to not realize how awesome this device is.
All I keep thinking is I wanna play those games on a BIG screen. haha!
And i say why not? The dream is to have a portable PS3 anyway. Ask Kojima
I heard "Nintendo Got Pwned" some time today, I thought that was pretty clever.
i always forget its called NGP but when I read nintendo got pwned it made me remember it better :D
Just NO. It's more like Nintendo Got Pwned!
Not gonna pay, for it. or, Nintendo get paid. As in a pricing advantage yet again, despite Sony repeating the same mistake twice.
It was only a matter of time till an article like this popped up.
I remember when the psp was announced after the ds was and I am hearing alot of the same chest pounding stuff..............but look how that turned out I am buying both
I'd have to say after seeing the NGP SONY WILL BEAT or do I say play match up with the 3DS now it have Android built in it.
I think since everyone has an Android phone PS games will succeed but no doubt the 3DS will blow the NGP out of the water because it's Nintendo and it will have much better games. The NGP is powerful but that's it.
Powerful specs don't mean much when you are competing with Nintendo.
yes but its like saying the 360 is inferior to ps3 its not is it the 360 has better games the difference is like between 360/ps3 the 3ds is a 360 in full 3D the psp2 is a ps3 in 2D and with Nintendo and there 1st partys like Retro ect will make games that will make psp2 cry trust me even wii will get some killer games because of 3DS that Last story has better graphics than most ps3 games and i mean that core graphics on Wii/3DS/360/ps3/psp2 ect are all amazing at full pelt
I will be getting both but i know that when you put a game on the psp 2 you will just be amazed your jaw is gonna drop by the graphics this is the real next gen hand held console
if it did that in full 3D as the 3ds is doing graphics as good in full 3D
Seems a lot of the NGP features were copied from the DS. Also seems like it has most of the same games the PS3 does. Cant say the same thing about Wii/DS both offer different libraries of games. I also do not see this going over well with the age group Sony attracts. The 10-16 year old kids out there are going to have hard time paying for that 3g network access.
Good, we won't have to deal with punk ass kids.
Umm...since when did Sony start attracting 10-16 y/o? The very price of their products suggest that they are indeed targeting the core gaming demographic (21-35 y/o). It is only recently (last 2 years) that Sony has started to cater to the younger crowd with the PSP because it finally hit that sweet spot in pricing. As for having the same games, you and I both know that there is a lot of crossover between Wii and DS games. Just as there is in Sony's brand. It is just good business to provide more of what you want. As far as features being copied, I don't see it like that. Both companies have decided to build their respective systems up to current 2011 tech specs to compete with each other AND the Iphone. Thus, you get touchscreens, gyroscopes, touch pads, 3D, etc.
Not sure what you have been drinking/smoking but name one feature of the NGS other than cameras that the DS had or even the 3DS for that matter. Also do you mind providing a link to where you heard that sony's user base is mostly 10-16? I read a university poll about a year ago that researched the average age groups of gamers for different systems and sony's is 19-21. you are probably thinking about the 360 which was 14-16.
they are both winners in my book.. yes i plan on getting both so both win... and i win too....
And it's only a matter of time like article like these will show up: - NGP will fail - NGP will be Hacked day one - Sony will fall because of NGP - 3DS outsold NGP 10 to 1 (NGP is just awful). - Sony shouldn’t have released NGP - Is NGP actually good? - NGP ALL FLAWS LISTED - NGP is a waste of money - Don’t buy NGP - 100% chance for the NGP to fail Just to show there’s not only ps3 droids that runs the site but xbots to, the same happened for the ps3.
The hard core gamers will go for the NGP and everyone else will go with the 3DS.
Que all the "X reasons why the PSP2 will fail/not outsell the 3DS" flamecrap articles. Yeah it'll be a sinking ship just like Blu Ray and the Playstation 3, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. I would pay to see the 3DS run MGS4 in real time like the PSP2/NGP did. If you weren't impressed by that, than you're obviously a soccer mom in the wrong place or an MS sycophant wishing it had been done by "your" gaming company.
It's going to be the PSP2 for me, I just canceled my preorder for my 3DS just now on amazon. I'll get the 3DS in the summer for my birthday instead.
Uhm, that article is practically comparing apples and oranges. They're just too damn different to actually compete with each other. If anything, the NGP is about how well it appeals the general market and how sony will actually be smart and support it in an intelligent way. Not like how they did with the PSP and ignore all the hacking, all the piracy and complaints in how it lacked a great deal of 3rd party support. If sony maintains a good momentum for a least 3 years in a row, after that, it'll be smooth sailing.
Kinda wish the 3DS had the specs of the NGP but with the design of the 3DS. I want 2 screens, and i want 3D but i want the graphics of the NGP and trophies. Pokemon with the graphics of the NGP would be amazing.
Yes, but why would you want to have cheaper niche titles squeezed out of the market, due to development costs? Thats whats gonna happen with the PSP2, haven't you been being paying attention?
I think both devices are pretty neat. 3DS also has the advantage when it comes to 3D. NGP (PSP2) has the advantage when it comes to visuals and controls. I'll eventually get both somewhere down the road once the prices come down to $199. Already got an iPhone as my portable gaming device and that's treating me good.
u know an awfull lot dont u grow up the touch screen and normal dpad kick the hell out of the psp2 controls grow up and the circle pad is mint
Calm down. I never said any of these devices were bad. All of them offer something unique to the table. By the way both PSP2/3DS have touch screen. PSP2 has the dual analog sticks and a touch screen. 3DS has the single analog stick with the touch screen pen. iPhone is just a touch screen. Learn to take other people's feedback will you. Didn't I just say I was gonna get both PSP2/3DS so yeah not bias over here.
I'm gonna miss when handheld gaming was affordable.
