RipTen: So Nintendo’s new handheld is finally here, and you’re still wondering whether or not it’s worth all the hype. Luckily, RipTen is happy to share our thoughts with you.
I'm definitely interested but patient enough to wait for the NGP so I can decide which is best for me.
nintendo will beat ngp. ngp will be a big bench marking machine and thats it.
Beat it in what sales? lol thats what matters to you? Please NGP will have the superior hardware and software so in the end it will beat 3DS.
Nintendo will beat the NGP in Sales Games and overall fun. it will not beat the 3DS.
Here's a better question. Who cares? Me? You? Do you work for Nintendo? Or Sony? I thought so. Why should we care which console beats the other? Regardless of which system "prevails...ppffff", there is gonna be a gamer enjoying that platform. I don't give a care in the world if NGP sells more than the 3DS. I'll still be enjoying my exclusive titles on each system. Besides you fool. Its 2011. The real enemies here are Apple/smartphones casual games. And you stupid fanboys continue these mindless arguements. What? Bragging rights? ROFLMAO. Let me tell you something. Defending...your perfered company fanboy...aint gonna drop a cent in your pocket. You remember that.
I don't see it, not this time, Sony really did their homework this time, the features and hardware of the NGP along with the developer support and much much more accessible development set up(what many devs said) and the massive possibilities with the casual games and connectivity(PS suite) make it a big contender to overtake the 3DS. If the NGP launches at the same price $250 then it will destroy the 3DS. Oh and the hardware is built for every type of game, 2 sticks and the combination of the front touch screen and back pad add a new dimension that the 3ds cannot match.
The 3DS is really awesome, but my dad played with it for 45 minutes yesterday and he hasn't been the same since.
Nice review, the 3DS rules.
The 3DS is impressive but ultimately I need to see some games. I don't buy hardware just for the gimmicks.
Needs more games
it just launched
They will come in time.
Agreed. Also, why did the Japanese get a Professor Layton game as a launch title, and the U.S. didn't? That would have been a great addition.
Jap has over a year head start over the west for layton.
So its basically DSi with 3D. Amazing. /s
No. 3DS is a more powerful machine than the DS.
I don't understand the disagrees. I just stated a fact.
Yup. You did just state a fact. Those disagrees right there represent Sony fanboys...blinded by their stupid mentalities. Same goes for the Nintendo fanboys, who blindly defend the mario rehashx47. And....the same as well for the 360 fanboys. All three sides hold large sectors of stupidity. And no. I'm "not" a PC gamer. Just a man statin the facts.
The 3DS gives me a killer headache unless I play with 3D off.
Even on the lowest setting? Thats BS, your eyes are weaker then a newborn baby if thats true. I think your trolling.
Did you try the 3D once or something? Headaches go away after the first day.
Have mine and loving it.
No hardware review can rate it so highly.It may have good games and become a great platform but as a piece of hardware I found it felt dated right off the bat.The circle pad is good but the rest is meh. Especially,if you consider the 3D a pointless gimmick.Pilot Wings looked good for 5 min,then I didn't really even notice. Jury still out on 3DS but the hardware is a 6.5.Luckily for gaming platforms it's more about the games.(graphics were a disappointment too,with little advancement over the old PSP)
While the 3DS is a good handheld and has received many positive reviews. I feel that for a Nintendo handheld it is way too expensive. Given the fact that the DS released at a price of 150€. Also if my purchase of a DS has taught me anything is that Nintendo will release multiple versions of the handheld. Which is why i am going to wait a little bit and see if they come out with a 3DS lite. Also i havent tried the console yet but i have bad eyes so I am a little worried about the 3D aspect of it. I know the handheld has a 3D slider but i feel that Nintendo is charging you 100€ more for the 3D since the last one the DS was 150€ at launch. Anyways for the people who own 3DSs and have no headaches I wish them to have a ton of fun with it since Nintendo always delivers (like sony) with great titles.
Here's my reasoning. I love old school nintendo games but I din't like motion control (Wii) I love ps3's awesome first party lineup of exclusive games (which will all probably be on NGP) but if I want to play those exclusives wouldn't I just play them on my 1080p graphics ps3? Whats the point on having a shitload of the same game? And I'll be getting my Nintendo fix on the 3DS handheld. The best of both worlds.
