Nikkeibp interviewed Level-5 company president Akihiro Hino and asked his opinion for the newest toy from Nintendo and Sony 3DS and NGP.
Is it just me or does his face kinda remind you of jack black?
his face is like that since 2009 because lack of sleep
No...no it doesn't...
Talk about taken out of context, lol
Ah, "journalism". He stated: "Currently it seems like too early to give an opinion" But noooo, he loves 3DS over NGP.
u missed out the sentence before it "I had suggested some ideas for NGP before the spec was finalized, but it seems that SCE didn't implement any of my suggest at all." but yh whichever sentence makes you feel better :) @below "3DS has popular tech elements which will makes people think "Wow, cool" and showing off to their friends" well I dont know but that sentence seemed enthusiastic to me :/
Funny, as SCE was talking about how they went around and asked the development community for feedback. Too bad none of Hino-san's ideas were used. Anyway Level-5 has made a lot more games for DS than PSP so I'm not surprised.
well that sentence means nothing , it still doesnt show a preference . Only that his suggestions werent followed for the ngp . Did he even stated they listened to his for the 3d instead ? Then there you go .
@Sufaced I'm pretty sure when Sony said asked devs for feedback they ment it as for game development , not what screen, or button layout,etc if his ideas dont relate to the game development side, why would i take his advice when im the hardware company and he only makes games?
Probably helps that Level 5 have the biggest selling 3DS game to date with the latest Prof Layton. He's hardly going to complain when beating even Nintendo's sales..
I'll be turning that off anyway. What I would like to know is, how much of the 3DS' price is due to 3D? And how long should I wait for a price drop to match the price it should've been without the 3D.
How does; "I had suggested some ideas for NGP before the spec was finalized, but it seems that SCE didn't implement any of my suggest at all." translate to "He prefers the 3DS"... In fact, him saying its too early to give an opinion (which is in the article and something you've chosen to ignore) goes to show, he never said he prefers the 3DS...
He is a genious. He brought a company to prominence with quality and different game styles.........puzzle, sports, rpg, srpg theyve done it all
bring us our 3DS lineup!!! :) @below how exactly? :S
get a NES and your set
what games does level 5 make again R they dw series
Professor layton White knight chronicles Dragon Quest 8 and 9 Dark Cloud
dragonquest5/6>all other DQ's just sayin
i see thanks i don't follow them
Please let me translate this for everyone. He loves the money potential of the 3DS more than the NGP.... Nothing to do with what is better..
he he said the other way aroud all the sony fan boys would be like ngp day one ngp> 3ds ngp for hard core but since its not there ass is shut
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. You are such a fanboy yourself.
yeah i am but i state facts and truth only the sony fanboys disagree but go on andy ds thread and u will see
Not interested with level-5 anyway.
Gosh I hope Sony puts a 1gig Ram in this thing.It will really benifit the NGP in the long Run.Anyways I wonder why this dev did not exactly mention what is ideas are.The only thing 3DS can do that the NGP can't is Dual Screen and 3D.PS do you Sony giving us a Stylus touch screen plastic pen with every NGP?
Anyways kudos to Sony for nt going with the Tegra 2.It was going to make this system too expensive and it power demands were too high.Its okay, maybe Sony can put Terga 2 in their Ipad clones coupled with an NGP GPU but with 8cores and the NGP gpu.That's enough processing power to make it Full HD.Throw in there playstation suite and they are sorted.D
Like what ? 3D ? You can only go so far with 3D, it's only a graphical layer made to be eye candy. It's not a game changer. The circle pad ? The thing the PSP already only made a bit more comfortable ? AR games ? NGP can do it aswell. Gyroscope ? NGP can do it aswell. Dual - screen ? Yeah, well, thats probably one thing the where 3DS shines, but then again so did the DS, and dont forget the stylus. That where the back (multi) touch pad for the NGP comes in. This isn't about preference, it's always about money. The Layton games just so happens to be selling really well on the Nintendo handheld with it's touch screen capability. But that also raises another point, there is no excuse to not make unique and fun games for the NGP with it's improved controls.
