4 Reasons The NGP Won’t Be D.O.A.

Geek Revolt writes "Ngmoco’s Neil Young seems to think that Sony’s latest handheld will be dead on arrival. He thinks that mobile games (iPhone/Android) will be the future; this is a flawed way of thinking. iPhone /Android games are getting better each year, but they’ll never replace traditional handhelds. Furthermore, the NGP won’t pick up where the PSP left off. Here are four reasons the NGP won’t be dead on arrival."

Reason Five: It will be released in Japan.

It will be a success regardless of how well it does in North America.

Neil Young is a CEO of a company that makes crappy games for cell phones (And i mean "CRAPPY", not the occasional gem like Angry Birds). He WANTS ngp to be DOA.

"reason arent that good. sony seems to think raw power answer all. Nintendo atleast did innovate"
They didn't innovate?
3G?
INCREDIBLY easy development tools?
Two-sticks on a handheld?
Trackpad on back?
Six-axis?
You are one lost soul if you think "Sony didn't innovate with the NGP"

Best wishes. Good luck.

Reason 1 the micro games. I have an Ipod 4 but the games just are not satisfying... I cant play a game for more than 5 minutes. So ironic people like that I hate it when a game doesnt hook me for at least 30 minute.

reason arent that good. sony seems to think raw power answer all. Nintendo atleast did innovate. I do think psp2 will end up selling less do to apple and other mobile's eating the handheld market

I think Sony are trying to innovate with the NGP. The back trackpad is an example.

slavish32668d ago

touch screen is not innovation, lol

Yes that was amazing when the guy actually pushed on the back to lift the landscape up to move the ball.The NGP won't be D.O.A because not all of us are stupid enough to pay money for fake 3D, eyestrain, nausea, over milked series and decades old games when we can get current series, twin joysticks and close to PS3 power with the NGP. @ GamerPops 80 million users is a moderate success? Really.

As far as dedicated handheld gaming systems go I think the ngp has several firsts.
Dual analogs
back touch pad
blue tooth
3g
motion sensing
oled screen
gps

Now granted some cell phones may incorporate this technology, but we are talking about dedicated gaming devices. The only thing the 3ds has that is fresh is...3d.

Just give us awesome games, and we'll buy the NGP.

OneWorld2668d ago

It's going to sell like crazy in Japan. I really hope Sony release a purple NGP/PSP2.

littlebigmarcpsps32668d ago
