NowGamer: Motorstorm Apocalypse developer Evolution Studios says that Sony's worldwide network of developers got exactly what they requested in the NGP...
can people stop approving articles were quotes are ripped out of bigger articles?
guess that explains your one bubble. Its great to see Sony improving their hardware to make it more developer friendly. now devs like ninja theory and valve can't use excuses like "its too hard to work with" in the first place Max power: dont know what your on about. this name was the only one I could come up with that wasn't taken.
EDIT: What explains your one bubble?
@ Max Power He/she is a troll. Just check the comments made and you'll understand.
I am aware of his hypocrisy, I just wanted teh to have some self reflection on it.
Im glad Sony listened to their fans and didnt cave to the casual market. Although they will recieve much hate, us real gamers will love 'em.
but I know I DO want it though! day 1!
Great. Now, Get started on making more games plox. :)
Good to know Sony listen to what people who are going to work on the hardware want and provide that.
This device should do just fine.
Polygons cant be round.
So many possibilities with this device...*drools*
I know what Mrs Apollyn is getting me for Christmas! 9 months to butter her up!
just put in phone functions and i'll be happier than the virgin who lost his virginity. q;
. JRPGs. Lots and lots of JRPGs.
i want MotorStorm Apocalypse on NGP!
I'm not big on handheld game consoles, but this NGP is great. I would consider purchase if the price was £199 or less. I would want an HDTV input, just so could take it to a friends home and show it off on the big screen. Otherwise, not bothered. I'm happy to stick with PS3 at home.
I might just have to save up for this. Not sure how though. So many games, so little cash.
Why couldn't they have just incorporated this tech into the Playstation phone? I would have more easily bought one this way, & I think it would have moreso insured there success. Now, only hardcore gamers know & realise what kind of a beast this thing is, & in my experience, not a huge ammount of hardcore gamers invest in expensive handheld gaming devices, as that is big bucks that could have been spent on there pc rigs, or pc/console games. I love the idea of this machine being so powerful & such, but I think Sony's 1st biggest mistake was not just having this as a phone/monster powered gaming device, & confusing the casual base by releasing a seperate phone, that's specs are unclear yet, but is looking at running PS1 dble handmedowns, & probably some mini's. There 2nd biggest mistake (which is a huge one when factored together with the 1st one) is that they are releasing this all powerful beast to compete with a 3D gimmick (maybe) handheld machine that is made by THE HANDHELD KINGS, who have had a stranglehold on the market since G&W's in the 80's. I mean Atari & Sega came out with more powerful machines than the Gameboy (which from memory never even had color) in the Atari Lynx & Sega Gamegear which both got owned hard. Both had color screens & were much more powerful than the GB. Yet the GB sold to the masses, big time. And I put it down to the right price, and the equally important marketing & hype. Both of which the 3DS have again, leading into another round of the handheld war. Sony releasing a standalone handheld, as well as a phone that plays less impressive games, and then not having the latest craze of 3D implemented into there standalone machine seems like a BIG mistake & massive advantage to Nintendo's 3DS. Considering Sony are such huge advocaters of 3D technology with there tv/hometheatre products coupled with the PS3, it seems like a silly missed opportunity to ommit it from another product sporting the Sony name, & PS brand product. They better make sure they market the living shit out of it, & price it smartly. If not bang on equal money $ for $ to the 3DS, then it better be $10 or so less. Sony's marketing was sooo good for PS1 & even PS2...But PSP & PS3 really got ignored. PS3, especially at it's launch time & shortly thereafter were horribly ignored, and that is the most important time for that. So get advertising Sony, & get some BIG hype around this thing, as so far Nintendo & it's new DS with 3D has all the buzz & hype leading up to launch.
Who would want to hold the NGP and use it as a phone. Sony has already released the psp which did great in a hand held market with Nintendo. If they included 3D, I'm wonder how much that would of increased the price.
Hahaha, phone function for NGP? What's the point? It would increase price and it still wouldn't be popular as a phone anyway. Who would buy an expensive and powerful gaming phone if he isn't interested in gaming? It still would be popular just as portable console doesn't matter if it has phone integrated or not. Xperia Play will cost at least $400 dollars so can you imagine how much NGP smartphone would cost? Moreover, the whole form factor should be changet to fit phones' standarts and that brings loss of some part of PS brand. However I quite like an idea of Xperia Play even if it's dedicated for limited age group. Buttons delivers a lot more comfortable playing and it might be popular with youth. Also it has its own games (including PS titles), which are cheaper than NGP's games and are better than most of usual phones' games.
At least the devs are extremely happy. This should mean some awesome titles from them
