Graphics: 3DS vs PSP2 (NGP) Video

PI writes, "When the Next-Generation approaches there are a few things we cannot enter without. First, is money of course. Next is a great lineup of games. And thirdly, is an awareness of the quality of each system heading our way.

For my gaming brothers who may not be so lucky as to afford multiple Next-Gen handhelds, I present to you the 3DS vs PSP2 Graphics Comparison Video.

Take a close look at this video and watch it as many times as you need then make your own conclusion!"

It's just unfair, like I thought, the 3DS is not that far off from a PSP1. the 3DS will still bring great content, but the hardcore gamer in me wants the NGP

fromasterjay2871d ago

I hear that....I think the 3DS is still going to put up a fight though.

jaredhart2871d ago

It's called being nintendo. The little kiddies always want nintendo.

Samus HD2871d ago

not only little kids but all gamers
if they don;t, than the only reason is that they didn't try it (they didn't play nintendo games)

SeNiLesBack2871d ago

I say get both and everyone WINS!!

blumatt2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

The Nintendo will sell do doubt. They could have just added 3D to their current DS and not upped the graphics whatsoever and it still would have sold great. Sony, for some reason, has a bigger problem selling its products due to people criticizing them. People saying stuff like "the games look too good for a handheld" or "No one wants to play PS3 games on the go." Lots of BS said about the PS3 when it launched and, now, the PSP2. I, personally love the graphics of the PSP2, and the fact that it's got a touchscreen and touchpad and motion controls will allow it to have all the iPhone apps that people love like Angry Birds as well as the hardcore games like God of War and Killzone, plus it will have all the cool apps from the iPhone and Android platforms ported over to it.

PSP2 is going to be sexy.

Incredibly ugly and nonsensical comparison in this video.

Define hardcore gamer. For me the real hardcore gamer will get both.

Fallouts2871d ago

exactly...

how can you call your self a hardcore gamer and not get both?

both will have great games and i will be enjoying them..

badz1492871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

I consider myself a hardcore gamer but I can never have more time than I already have, which is not so much to spend on gaming. I only own a PS3 and a gaming PC of course but some games on 360 and Wii occasionally interest me. it's not really because I can't buy another console but I don't think I'll have time for them all. I'm totally excited for NGP but I'm worried I won't have enough time for all those games I'm interested in which is A LOT for PS3+NGP! - and that's where money problems comes. I'm hardcore but can't never buy them all, SADLY! :(

Ps_alm3k2870d ago

for once you are right...

But the test is, if a Hardcore gamer had to choose one. Then that will determine how hardcore he is....

Because when your hard, it's hard to choose.......

9thGenHero2870d ago

Hardcore as in content with the proper interface. Dont gat me wrong, the 3DS is going to sell millions, but the way it's designed from a control standpoint the several number of hardcore titles such as ssf4, resident evil, etc wont provide the level of control as an NGP. I love me some Layton and Phoenix wright, so I'm probably only going to play those types and the Nintendo franchises from my childhood, the rest of my attention will be on what's coming out on the NGP

Vherostar2870d ago

hardcore and a nintendo console/handheld in the same sentence/paragraph??? lol Everybody knows N intendo don't go for the hardcore market and thats why they have been doing so well in recent years by avoiding Sony and MS and they will do it once again with the 3DS. Sure a few devs may bring a few games you may consider hardcore to the hand held but 90%+ games will be core casual you can put money on it.

n4f2870d ago

my friend doenst work and he always have the money to buy game. so saying your hardcore but dont have the money is just you being lazy

Oh come on...Will be posting this as many ignorant articles ike these there is to come.

Psp
Cpu: 333 MHz
Gpu: No details
Ram: 4MB Dedicated, 32MB RAM.
3DS
CPU:: two 266MHz = 672MHz + ARM11 CPUs,
GPU: 133MHz GPU,
Ram: 4MB dedicated VRAM, 64MB RAM.
NGP
PSP2/NGP
CPU: ARM® Cortex™-A9 core (4 core)2GHz.
GPU: SGX543MP4+ = 512+
Ram: Unofficial but rumors stated 1GB, most likely 512 for the final SKU.

3DS as a sole process is 2x Psp's power, but when we talk about games designed exclusively to the 3D usage, then they will barely have psp's graphics although with better perfomance = better IA, more enemies in the screen = Amount of 3DS ram.

pain777pas2871d ago

PSP 2000s and onwards had 64MB RAM. Not really going to change your post but it is true.

klado2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

I see, thank you then.

I think for the GPU alone, will separate the system making the 3DS comes ahead of the PsP certainly.

Lol at the disagrees..with FACTs? good to be a n4g user.

joeorc2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

but the orig. PSP has for it's GPU

333MHz Mips GPU with 4MB or ram.

the PSPGo's if your interested is both Mips the CPU core and the GPU core run @ 436Mhz

AS for Each core in the A9 it's 800 MHz to 1 GHz per core most likely. can even go as High as 2 GHz per core but i doubt it..lol that would be Quite Hot!

wakakakak i want look at the nintendogs faces when i show them this video

@klado

did Sony secretly inform you that each NGP cpu is clocked at 500mhz?

klado2871d ago

Doubt, but surely the final process will be 512+...Duh

gamer20102871d ago

I don't understand how you can tell anything from such a low quality video with a distorted aspect ratio. It actually makes them seem closer than they really are.

The NGP has much more powerful hardware specs than the 3DS.

matey2870d ago

The 3ds has maestro technology and that means complex shaders and DX9/DX10.1 graphics as well as tesselation this extention the 3ds has is technology thats been getting better and better over the years and is at 2G level and its what Crytek got shown when they stated the 3ds to be very powerful and they said it could run cry engine and also crysis 2 the Picca200mhz+Maestro tech = ultra powerful gpu/api that does more than psp2 gpu end of it does 3D squared 4 solid 3D gaming ie 3ds the ps3/wii/360 couldnt do DX10.1 graphics with Maestro u can through OpenGL ES 1.1 extention pk (Maestro 2G) makes DX10.1 achievable it also supports OpenGL ES 1.1 standard with out Maestro 4 DX7/DX8 the picca 200 does alot more than psp2 gpu

pain777pas2871d ago

3DS is probably legitimately a PS2 in power or alittle above inching to the GC. Now on the 3DS PS2 games will look incredibly good. Remember GOW1 or 2 on that size screen will look mind blowing. Now NGP looks legitimately a little under 360 without optomization. On that size screen some games may LOOK better than PS3 and 360. Any game where the resolution is under 720p that is ported to all 3 systems with OLED tech on the 5 inch screen may LOOK better on the NGP because the image will not have been blown up to see flaws. The system will hide flaws and AA will not be mandatory so more processing power for other things. NGP will be serious.

matey2870d ago

u are talking through ur backside the 3ds picca 200mhz with Maestro tech does alot more than psp2 gpu alot more try 3D 4 a start and picca can run up to 400mhz 15 million polygons per 100mhz so 60 million polygons fully rendered can do any game on ps3 in full 3D plus with Maestro 2G the 3ds has potent shaders and DirectX10.1 graphics does the psp2 gpu suppory DX graphics anyways Crytek got shown this Maestro 2G its an extention of Picca 200 this is very powerful and this is without knowing the CPU

Vorgier2871d ago

The "hardcore" gamer in me also wanted a PSP1, but that didn't turn out so well.

Then I got a DS.

matey2870d ago

UR A TIT GO PLAY WITH YOURSELF AND YOUR WEAK SONY PLATFORMS THAT CAN ONLY MANAGE CRAP GAMEPLAY SAYING THE 3DS IS PS1 THE PEOPLA I KNOW THAT PLAYED THE MGS3 3DS SEMO SAID IT WAS AMAZING AND LOOKED LIKE MGS4 AND IN FULL 3D IT SHITTED ONPS2 U PLUM EVEN KOJIMA SAID IT TOOK THE BEST TALENT HE HAD TO GET THE DEMO UP AND RUNNING AND HE ALSO SAID GUESS WHAT ITS USING PS3 MODELS SO ABIT POINTLESS TRYING TO TRAIN THE INDUSTRY THAT A SYSTEM THAT CAN DISPLAY PS3 GRAPHICS NO PROBLEM IS A PS1 HA HA HA U FUCKING TIT FROM WHAT IVE SEEN THE PSP2 IS SAME GRAPHICS AS 3DS AROUND PS3 GRAPHICS

soren2869d ago

ima nintendo fan boy but...you are an idiot...every1 one knows psp2 is stronger dont be a stupid fanboy be a smart one lol no ur place

Vherostar2870d ago

The 3DS ain't anywhere near the PSP1 let alone the PSP2. It's more like DS graphics with a minor boost just like previous hardware to keep hardware costs down no doubt, since that 3D screen and chip must cost a bit right now.

soren2869d ago

you my fraind are a sony verstion of matey you sir are also and idiot every one knows 3ds is stronger then psp just not psp2 get ur facts straight dummy

JLeVRT2867d ago

I love Sony and Microsoft and hate Nintendo. But that comment was stupid. The DS's graphics SUCK. The 3DS is a bit better than the PSP1

Why would you compare the graphics of these two? What I'm waiting to see are SALES comparisons.

George Sears2871d ago

Dunno if you were being either funny or sarcastic but I just wanted to say that neither worked for me.

bluwulf2871d ago

egh, I just threw up in my mouth a little reading your comment preferring sales over grap...

UGHh... did it again.

I mean at least one has something to do with gaming.. the other not so.bleeaaaaarghghghhgglglhh

Dannehkins2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

@CrzyFooL I think I better my sell phone. Apparently the iPhone has sold more so I better move to that.

Heck, the cans of beans I buy are not the leading brand. I better swap quick because sales = the world.

Hitman07692871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

Oh boy you should have NOT said that lol. Disagree mountain...

It's all about the attach rate son!!!!

Not to mention user enjoyment, we aren't 5 anymore...

Personally I'll be picking up both handhelds and 3DS looks a lot better than expected.

Can't wait until there's more footage available to do see a better vid.

pain777pas2871d ago

Sales? As a gamer you know that the mainstream does not want what we gamers need. Is there 2 analogs on this portable system? YES! Call it the gamers handheld. NDS has a humongous install base and will cater to everybody well enough. I will be getting the 3DS even at launch but that depends on the launch game lineup. 3DS will sell more than NGP over its lifetime unless there is a marketing push from Sony like never before. This is the dreamcast of portables. This is what gamers want out of a handheld. Plain and simple. Sales don't matter to gamers at all. Never had and never will. Games matter and especially how you control those games. Why do you think some gamers don't like the WII? Because the controls are foreign to them and they reject it. Not to mention the games that are created and selling are not what they are interested in. 2 analog sticks with Sony 1st party games equals first day buy. This is the first handheld that can accurately reproduce any core game experience since Nintendo resurected gaming in the 80s. Process that.
