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 :)

"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.

Baka-akaB2820d ago

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 .

TreMillz2820d ago

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..

MaxXAttaxX2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

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...
