IGN: The NGP in Action

Seeing as how GDC is all about developers, it makes sense that Sony's newest system -- the NGP -- is in the house. We've already brought you Uncharted Portable news from the official NGP panel, but that's just the tip of the NGP iceberg. Direct to Drive Community Manager Walter Lopez and me, IGN Vagabond Greg Miller, had our iPhone 4s in hand when we ran into the Next Generation Portable here at GDC, so take a look at some of our beauty shots. (Game Developers Conference, Next-Gen, PS Vita, Sony, Tech)

"I really dont know why people are disagreeing with you. What you do with your money is your buisness."

Same reason I have one bubble, because this site has a lot of PS3 fanboys and I tend to call them out so the second they see my name its straight to the disagree button. Yes even if the comment is PRO Sony, that's how deep there hate goes. The funny part is I spend more $$ on Sony products than most of the fanboys here, but they think if you dont scream out "HAIL SONY" every day you are a loser.

My thinking is Id stay at ONE bubble for the rest of my days bashing faboys than to be a one sided simple minded drone to any ONE system any day.

You dont loose bubbles because of the disagree button. You loose them if people or gain them when enough people use the bubble button. Anyways i made a ton of posts and havent lost a bubble yet so i really think it depends on what you say.

Anyways my advice is to be careful with what you say on N4G.

But yes if you speak the truth and ppl bubble you down they can go the heck for it.

Are you against robosexuals? Shame on you.

Robosexuals should have the same right as any organ carrying species.

This is stronger than Ps2, and its stronger than Ps1 stronger than both graphically it's nice seeing a handheld going this route.

If Ngp never came to light im sure microsoft would of created a next-gen handheld

If Sony would spend the money that they used for this waste on the Ps3 and advertising and securing new IP development, they might have jumped to the top spot in the only race that matters -- THE CONSOLE ONE.

handhelds are Nintendo's thing -- I've no doubt that Nintendo could kill their console and live and thrive off handheld marketshare. Sony can't do that. They never will be able to do that and spending all this money and development time on this is just stupid.

No one wants to hold a handheld in their hands while they blast through 50 hours of gaming. They want small, short, user friendly, casual games. Look at the top selling games on PSP, none are over 3 million. That's sad and telling.
liveActionLeveler  +   1734d ago
Guess what? This time even some of 3DS's games are like the ones you describe for the original psp. The great thing about both handhelds is that they have "meaty" experiences, while also leaving things like ps suite and 3DS store for the more "short burst" game you're talking about.

Edit: Have you heard of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. That's a game that's not even been localized in the U.S. and has still sold over 3 million, so your argument is invalid.

I'm convinced that the "l" in this guy's name is a disguised "i", making his name read "Bait".

"Look at the top selling games on PSP, none are over 3 million. That's sad and telling."

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is sold 4.12 million copy...just in Japan. And i had a blast with PSP and NDS. Maybe you should try / buy this two great handheld rather than bashing one of them.

That is the dumbest thing I ever heard. Really it is. Are you saying that Sony shouldn't take a chance with a hand held because it MIGHT not work because Nintendo is good with a hand held? Then I guess Sony shouldn't have a made the PS1, because Sega and Nintendo were the ones who had the market at the time and Sony never made a console before. Why bother to make the PS1 because it MIGHT not be popular and might not work out?

Really the type of ignorance I see on this site is staggering.Sony had a 80 million user base with the PSP, how do you know they can't do the same or better with this? Because you say so? Because you seem to be Sony's account and know that they are 'wasting' money?

If it wasnt for Sony, Nintendo would be doing what ever they want with the handheld Market. Which in a consumers point of view is never a good thing.
Killzone3___  +   1733d ago
first you bash the ps3 and then you bash the NGP because they wasting the money on it instead of puting it on the ps3 ? if you hate the ps3 then why you saying the NGP is a waste of money instead of saying you want something new like the NGP ? .. ..
