Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said Friday rival Sony was taking a different tack from his company and so he remains upbeat about his 3-D portable game machine going on sale next month.
NGP >>>>> 3ds
hands down http://imgur.com/riQhj
But then again: MGS 3 >>>>> MGS 4
wow the quality difference is huge there! The difference between NGP and 3DS power = PS3 vs PS2
If I were a parent who knows that looking at 3D images too long could imact brain development of kids as stated by Nintendo, I wouldn't touch the 3DS with a ten foot pole.
theres room for both devices :) and like this article says they are both different and offer different features to different gaming audiences. The PSP was great and sold well, the DS was great and sold well.. and they both continued selling while both were released. PSP2 = hardcore gamers portable device.(may even appeal further to web and or mobile users thanks to the 3g option and android) 3DS = casual gamers portable device. Both will sell, both will have fans.. simple :) Get what you want to get.
"He acknowledged he was being more careful about commenting on the NGP after he angered some people by brushing off Apple Inc.'s iPad as "a big iPod Touch" last year." lol spot on nintendo thats exactly what an ipad is!
Sony says 3d is not for portable. Nintendo says NGP is difference. Which company sounds the most arrogant?
sony hasnt said that 3d isnt for portables, they havnt mentioned why they have not included 3d, either way for core games the psp2 will dominate, for more family and casual games the 3ds will dominate. there is room for both systems.
sony said 3D is not for portable because they don't have it. or they couldn't do it Now if you tell me they could than why not making it optional like the 3ds, giving you a chance for 2d and 3d
"sony said 3D is not for portable because they don't have it. or they couldn't do it" WHAT!? They never said they couldn't do it, they said the technology isn't there yet. The 3DS uses Sharps early glasses-less 3D displays which by the way are garbage. How you spun that little fairy tale up is mind blowing.
what ur saying is that nintendo is better technology-wise even though 3ds just got anally raped by the PSP2 in every aspect
Sure they can do it, a number of companies make the screens, and there are far better technologies available than what Nintendo is using. Nintendo didn't invent it, they just bought it like they usually do.
Both are going after 2 different gamers. Both will be good but for me it comes down to price. I will eventually own both though!
meh,3DS will sell like crazy,it will have tons of Nintendo franchises that will make people buy it in droves,NGP could be $1 and 3DS would still sell Best thing we can hope that NGP creates some sustainable hardcore niche,so that we can get good games steadily. This whole core,family thing is silly,DS has plenty of core games
Did you see that article a while back that reported of Amazon selling the PS3 for, like, 1/10 of its real price? People were jumping all over it! Sony just needs to remember that they need to keep their games affordable. It's probably the biggest reason why they started off slow this generation.
Meh.. I can see them pretty different.. The 3DS likely to be cheaper, more pocket friendly and basic yet have the potential of having the ultimate crack for children: Augmented Reality POKEMON Cockfights with voice command for the 3DS. The PSP2 is likely to be more expensive, barely fitting your pocket and risking "accidents" with that nub jutting out and is actually the device that is a "class of 1" that sits between smart phone and tablets (it seems to be that powerful). 2 nubs, great dev support, 3g, focus on multiplayer and social networking.. It's more of a PS3/360 competitor than the 3DS's.. but if you plan to nitpick.. it's still a handheld gaming machine that sits right next against the DS. W/e. I'd probably get both during their second revisions. I would have loved NPG to have a TV out but heard it wont. Most likely because it'll eat directly "with" the PS3 and its market.
With NGP being able to bring PS3 looking game to a hand-held system, I think it will later have an update or come with it. 3D support, because Sony then can let you watch your digital movies on the NGP in 3D and keep in mind that screen they are using is one of the screen that is mostly used for 3D. Nintendo is great but most of their DS games are kiddy as for PSP, most of them are for adult's or more mature people (Not saying their isn't any adult games for DS lol Japan has them).
What he says is true Nintendo isnt aiming for the same audience that Sony is.
What he says is completely true. DS and PSP have different games. I like to play Rune Factory on DS and RPGs on the PSP. However, I never like the idea of neutrality. Therefore, I will pick the root for NGP over 3DS. Why? I want Rune Factory in awesome graphics with dual analog controls. The DS shallow graphics and controls always leave me unsatisfied. I also have to dig through pile and pile of crappy games on the DS as well. Casual games often lack quality, lack depth of story, as well as lack depth of game play.
Well truthfully they are. 3DS and NPG are different markets. they will both be badass though.
