Gamers Outlook "Although it doesn't use the once-lauded Cell processor, the NGP has already demonstrated (at a press event in Tokyo) that it can run graphics nearly as powerful as the PlayStation 3. You can Pre-order right now on amazon."
It look's amazing but I'm worried about price and I think 5" is a bit too big but I'll have to see it in person before I know for sure.
Lets not forget you'll have to add the price of a memory stick on as well if you're after media playback.
I'm wondering...does the NGP come with internal storage? If not, then this is a needed feature!
I think the price is going to be lower than people expect. I want this thing badly it hurts!!
from the feature list i doubt it will be cheap, i think it might be as high as £250-300 at launch based on the 3DS prices
I am willing to pay $300 USD for this without thinking twice
£300? That is crazy and I really doubt it. For the American this insane figure of £300 is around $500.
The 3DS is on amazon at £180 with an RRP of £230 and the NGP looks to be a bit more advanced. Thats why I though £250-300.
People judge too quickly on price alone and barely even consider the specification, or what you're getting for your money. £250 for a brand new handheld, particularly as advanced as the NGP, is ideal. £300 is pushing it, but I think it will probably be around the £250 mark. Remember though, NGP was said to be distributed as multiple SKUs. I reckon the base model will be ~£250, and a more advanced SKU: ~£300+.
Did you see the Hardware this beast have? 3DS is reasonable, but NGP have an outstanding hardware, blows 3DS out of the water. Any person with knowledge about Hardware know this. Cheap is not suitable with that. I expect $300 to $400.
Give me one NOW!!!
NGP is so powerful, it makes Chuck Norris look mortal.
graphics, graphics, graphics is all I ever hear. that doesnt make good games dudes. if anything development costs will be as bad as the consoles. And if thats the case originality and rick go out the window.
Educate yourself before you speak nonsense.
Hasn't every developer already chimed in with their five cents worth and claimed it's a 'dream' to develop for? Apparently porting over engines took days instead of weeks etc.
Sony has already said it is Android based. Therefore that opens to door to all developers because Android is notoriously cheap and easy to program for. There will be big budget and small budget games. This device has appeal to literally every single developer out there. Not to mention Sony asked the developers what they wanted to see in this thing and they took the feed back and gave them the NGP. I guarantee you that one of the main things developers said was they wanted a cheap platform to develop for. I'll wait until official statements come out, but I would bet a $1000 you are dead wrong.
no you're not educated. you would know that this system is more than just graphics, just by reading up what hardware it has on board. NGP, has simply, the most universal approach to Handheld Gaming ever. Not only is it simple to develop for, you can make pretty much, any game you want, whether, with the touch screen/touch pad on the back/second analog stick/ accelerometers, or a combination of everything. Graphics are the main focus, simply because Sony created a portable that is on par with today's current Gen console Hardware.
If you are educated far more than most people on here, then how come you spelled there that way, that is the incorrect word. You would be looking for the possessive form which is their. The word you used would be used to say, that car is over there. It denotes a location not possession. Also, you forgot to punctuate both of your sentences which is in reality just one big run on sentence. Now what were you saying about your education.
I love the two disagrees. Why do you disagree about a fact of the english language? How about you write an actual reply instead just clicking a box blindly. I would love an actual reason instead of a child like response. Monkeys can click boxes as well you know.
The devs make the good games and they have a large dose of those this time around. Also development for this device is said to be easier than developing for the 360 itself so...you figure. The parts inside this device maybe advance but not alien to the public which further backs up the easy to develop claims the devs themselves are making. And in addition to all this is the fact that it has a bag of inputs ready for the devs to play with. This device will be something special and i for one cant wait for e3 to get here already. Just cant get enough of this platform,Sony out did themselves this time around. Lets at least give them some credit for their effort.
@ Nicaragua I really dont see the need for childish insults.
'I am far more educated than most of the people here' Ha, what a deranged idiot. He equates that education equals intelligence! Tell that to Richard Branson & Sir Alan Sugar. And btw, geniuses don't use 'dude' in their sentences.
well since money is not a problem for me im getting 2 at launch maybe 3 if my younger brother wants 1 for christmas
Gimme the goods. Launch price, launch games and media storage info. My body is ready!
I cant wait to see their plans for the 3G model.
