Have you missed all those console war talks? Just hold your breath because Sony might be kick-starting one as we prepare for the massive E3 showing
Relax, Sony. Just relax.
They can't cuz they know 3DS will beat the pants off their NGP.... Vita, lol!
i know just like it's destroying the psp.........
Ah, but it comes back to the point of sales does not mean quality. If done right both machines could have superb games. But in all reality i can see the 3ds having more shovelware, because cheap developers might try to mask a crappy game behind the gimmick of 3d.
Despite launching in February's last week, its going to overtake the PSP in sales by around 500k units becoming the best selling console of japan in 2011. http://www.gamasutra.com/vi... It had a bad launch, I agree, but once those killer titles come in... PSP & NGP will be left in the dust! By April 2012 all of these titles will be out: 1. Super Mario 3DS 2. Mario Kart 3DS 3. Kid Icarus Uprising 4. Resident Evil Revelations 5. Metal Gear Solid 3 6. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 7. Super Street Fighter IV 8. Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle 9. Star Fox 64 10.DoA Dimensions 11.Paper Mario 3DS Expect strong sales and high quality, you'd be a fool not to.
Is this a sport to you?? What is the point of rooting for 3DS to Destroy NGP? Competition is a good thing. Hope they both do well. I prefer the NGP but it is ok if the 3DS does well.
Classic old charizard, no matter how many accounts u create, will always be the old bashing dog againts sony foreva xD. Oh dude, given the list of launching tittles for the vita, sry to tell you but I don´t see it being destroyed, maybe passed but destroyed? also, trust me when I say, we will se a total new approach from sony toward the vita, new franchises and so indies approachabilities from indies dev, where does the 3DS stand to all that in comparison? games I may presume, but haven´t yet been wowed by anything but port from past consoles so guess twice mate, this is a new generation and mistake are not bound to happen lol. Vita + Affordable price + that launch line of tittles? 3DS overhauled. There, wasted some words on u my beloved troll mate xD. @DA SHREDDEr...lol no one believes u have kid dude, or they most be some sad beings lololol.
3ds is for nintendo as pspGo was for Sony. Its an interesting gimmick.
@ DarkCharizard I bet the PSP outsells the 3DS in Japan for the year of 2011 (Jan to Dec). I don't care what Famitsu once said.
and that is a bad thing? Dont you generally want an upgrade when the next version comes out? Unlike the dsi"XL" compared to the dsi. Only thing different there was size. 3ds offers many upgrades over the dsl/dsi. Much like ngp will offer may upgrades to the psp. Why are people trying to make something out of this?
too early to start, Sony doesn't learn right??
The 3DS is as much as an updated DS as the NGP is an updated PSP =/ Lol @ the disagrees. You guys do realize that that wasn't a knock on the NGP right? All I was saying is that if the 3DS can be considered an update than the NGP can too. That's totally a fair thing to say.
Oh, I get it, you're trying the reasonable discussion on N4G, wow. Props man, props. lul
Sony are right though. Colour it anyway you want, the 3DS doesn't really offer much new to the DS. 3D and analogue stick... Where as the NGP brings in a new control method (track pad on the back), multi platform multiplayer, and a true console experience on the go. Coupled with a console like online experience and the possibility of on the go multiplayer (using 3G) I think the NGP has a good chance of taking the top spot here, especially considering there is something for everyone, and if I recall correctly the NGP will be able to play games from the Android market place, meaning Minecraft on the NGP!
If we were to use that logic, the Wii is just an "updated" version of the Gamecube. -End statement
did anyone read it ? it’s not as bad as author is making out to be .
No one read it machioto. The comment is not a slight.. but more of an answer to a question.
You're not allowed to use common sense on this site. You should have said the 3DS is just an update (which it is) And the NGP is GOD. If you said that, you would have gotten extra bubbles and agrees up the ying yang.
Why the disagrees? NGP is really an updated PSP with a similar design, improved graphics and controls. Just like the x360 is an updated xbox and PS3 is an updated PS2.
ok imagine if sony announced they're releasing the psp 3000 but with 3d and3 axis that would be an updated version, or if Nintendo announced a WiiHD that'd be an update. If the 3ds had 3g, an actual store, tons of support, then i'd probably say it's a next-gen machine
Remember when Ken Kutaragi, the Father of Playstation, said: "This time, Microsoft has stated clearly that it is going after PlayStation. However, they're going not after the PlayStation 3, but the PlayStation 2. They were looking at 2, and that's why Xbox 360 became like that." Yet, worldwide Xbox 360 still leads and sales are comparable for PS3 and Xbox 360. Although the 3DS made me nauseous within 2 minutes, the analog stick worked really well, but it only has one. The screen was nice and larger, but it did feel like a minor update and the 3D effects was [email protected] Maybe that is why 3D in general hasn't taken off at all in general....
It's kinda true.. 3ds = ds with 3d.. NGP = psp with 2 sticks, touch screen, camera's, rear touch, six axis, almost home console matched power, full psn support.. they're both re-iterations of the previous device however the NGP is for sure brining more/better features over the last device
I agree. And too bad I can't vote for myself that I agree to agree.
I agree with Sony, the 3DS has the same graphics as PSP1, the same analog stick. But PSP is almost 100 bucks cheaper and did it 7 years ago. Also, the 3D on 3DS is not that good, I have a 50" 3D Plasma from Samsung and THAT is real stereoscopic 3D! The 3D of 3DS is just gimmicky.
Read the article, the quote is: "When we were designing the NGP we had no idea what Nintendo was going to do, Aside from the 3D stereoscopic display, they seem to be keeping the same theme that they had with the DS – it feels like an update of the DS to me", doesn't feel like smack talk to me. I own a 3DS, and that's what it feels like to me as well. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
If it ain't broke don't fix it. 3DS might seem updated but thats exactly what i want with better graphics,i don't need rocket boosters.
and what do you call the ngp? an update ps2? lol. I got the 3DS for my kids cause i know its gonna have mario, zelda, and many other things that my kids are already having fun toying with. The NGP should have been something to counter that, but for adults. I cant believe Sony are saying the NGP is all about the games? I was hoping for alot more than just playing downgraded games on the go. I wanted a smartphone that did downgraded console games. They aren't even sure what they are doing with the 3g yet. Why would anyone mess with 3g unless they are rich anyways? http://www.verizonwireless.... $80 bucks a month just to download 2 games on the ngp. Might went with 4g cause and sprint cause at least they have unlimited 4g broadband, and turned the ngp into a mobile hotspot. Now that would have made sense, but noooo,, Sony just like making life difficult for themselves.
an expensive ps3 port machine
I thought that's what the 3DS was, an overpriced 3D port machine. I mean it is a nintendo handheld after all.....
Just wait for Ocarina of Time 3DS! That's going to sell big time. Oh, hang on..
"An updated PS2" that has a PS3 tech.
"You can't believe the NGP is all about the games?" Then why the fuck else do you buy a game system?!
they are releasing 1 without 3g and why would you buy your kids a 3ds they could play mario etc on the DS and the 3d could mess up there eyes. It's funny though how low your standards are for the 3ds, as opposed to the NGP.
That's really not a bad thing if you think about it xD. The DS owned. Nah but really, the 3DS has tons of features. I don't see how anyone that actually owns a 3DS can say it's a simple upgrade.It has the eShop, 3D photos, StreetPass, SpotPass, 3D movies, Augmented Reality, accelerometer, gyroscope, a full-fledged friends list, and soon it'll have Netflix 3D and even 3D video chat AND recording (Reggie says.) If all of that qualifies as a simple "upgrade" than I guess every new system does.
Youtube 3D app would be freaking awesome!!
I cant file reports because I'm using a proxy but this is a duplicate. http://n4g.com/news/776360/...
OMG, THE NEW CONSOLE IS JUST AN UPGRADED VERSION OF THE OLD CONSOLE. C'mon, really? REALLY?
Here's what he's talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... It's not about games. It's not about graphics. It's not about gimmicks. It's about the user-interface. LiveArea gives Vita (NGP) the distinction of being a complete mobile socially-networked gaming platform. It's like Facebook & Twitter crashed head-on with PSN. Vita makes sure you're always connected. You always know what your friends and rivals are up to, gaming-wise. 3DS doesn't do things like this, and neither do smartphones. So Shuhei Yoshida is struggling to see what will match Vita's functionality.
That's what I've been saying. They say it's the next gen yet it sounds like it relates to the DS. Last gen for the Nintendo portable you had the DS, DSlite, DSi, DSiXL and now you have the 3DS. It just sounds like another upgrade, they should of called it something else other then putting the DS at the end.
the guy does have a point.... there really isn't much difference from the dsi...to the 3ds.... besides graphics and 3d.... everything basically stayed teh same...
"there really isn't much difference from the dsi...to the 3ds.... besides graphics and 3d" You are a perfect example of what 95% of this N4G community thinks. If you really think that than you sir, know nothing about the 3DS. Maybe you guys wouldn't think so if you actually took the time to educate yourselves on the device? Also, may I refer to my post above? Thank you.
i was throwing out the main points when people think about the 3ds and dsi.. oh what big thing was added/improved and 3d/graphics where a huge improvement.. do i have time to sit here and throw out EVERY SMALL DETAIL that was added..? no... cause personally i could careless.... so stop begin a sad little boy and move on.
3DS is just an updated DS, deal with it and stop the damge control. NGP FTW.
And Vita is a updated PSP.
touchscreen....frontback camera.... NEW UI...back touchpad... dual analog... that is one hell of an update if you ask me.
3Ds: Upgraded graphics, proper friends list, 3d screen, AR, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, spot pass, street pass, 3d photos, analog nub and 3d video streaming. One hell of an upgrade if you ask me.
How did this article get approved. It is the same information for a article yesterday. I like how negative news gets approve (xbox or ps3) the same articles over and over. However when there is a positive news it never get approved a million times for the same type of news.. This is such a joke. http://n4g.com/news/776360/... It is so hard to get real news on Games, instead of this bull crap.
I still remember Sony slagging Nintendo off with the Wii, saying it was too expensive.... this was when PS3 was 425pounds in the UK. lol
Yes, but for what it was, the Wii was WELL overpriced for what it was compared to the PS3.
Vita sounds like one of those healthy crackers that are marketed towards fat women. Or a box of special kellogs cereal. Also for fat women.
Vita sounds like a female rapper who was signed with Murder Inc. about a decade ago.
I like Sony as much as the next man, but they really need to shut the f up with the trash talking. Last time I checked they just leaked everyones personal details and their online infrastructure was offline for a month. And the first thing they do when they sort out the mess is talk shit about Nintendo, they will never learn.
clearly you didn't read the article or you would know that things were taken out of context and the titles are just made for hits. And ya they didn't leak shit, hackers did but nice try troll. Read! why won't it Read!
@Gray-Fox Oh shut up, people talk about other companies all the time it's no big deal. Besides would be worst if Sony called or made fun of Xbox live. It's pretty much true what they have said, NGP/Vita sounds like the next gen portable, the 3DS dosen't
I reckon this is to hide the fact that Sony has cut the spec of the NGP/Vita to compete with the price of this 3DS they like to slag off. Sony is scared methinks.
Well, it true...
oh vita. now they gave their handheld a female name. vita gets used by every guy in town vita gets things pushed in her holes vita is up for multi-player activity. what next, ps4 being called sally?? ps- sony duped everyone with their initial spec of vita, and downgraded it. so now vita isnt as good looking, just a cheap thing with average looks. pps- at least 3ds is secure. messing with vita is risky business, she might steal your wallet and take all your personal info.
Oh 3DS, huh?. They just threw that 3 on there, now didn't they? 3DS messes up the eyes of every guy in town 3DS has slots for all you cartridge pushing needs. 3DS is up for ARG activity but, you wont bother. Whats next, the DS being called 3DS XL?? ps- Nintendo duped everyone into buying yet another DS. pps- at least 3ds is secure, as in it fits securely on your shelf while you wait for games worth playing to be released for it.
Why are people making comparisons between the 3DS & the NGP? They aren't even in the same gen. When a device in incapable of running Unreal Engine 3, then it is not current gen. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... My year old phone can run UE3, and the 3DS has the cheek to call itself a dedicated gaming device? Let the simpletons waste $300 on their Fischer Price sub-3D brick.
Fail. - You were ok with you vita/girl reference (but from a gaming perspective: it’s actually a good thing, so I wasn’t sure where you were going with it) I gave you a pass for you 'PS'.. but could not stay silent with your 'PPS'.
I think what he means is that the 3DS feels like a regular DS, just with 3D games. That's not entirely true but it's not that far off. The step between PSP and NGP seems much larger than the step than DS to 3DS. I still don't see Sony taking the portable market though but I imagine this coming generation will be much more even, than the last one.
first off if you think 3ds is just a updated ds you either only played it for a hour or your not a gamer and don't keep up with video game news! so if you don't own a 3ds or never played one stop pretending you have!!! @ surfaced you never know what you are talking about when it comes to 3ds!!when you play at home or by a wifi hotspot 3ds connects to the net by itself and is always online to get spotpass updates and it lets you know when yours friends are online and what they are playing and what there fav game is!!so stop trash talking 3ds about stuff you think it doesn't do when most of the time it does. next you will say it doesn't do music,movies,and soon netflix, and i love 3ds but that doesn't make want to trash talk npg!!so i don't know why wanting a ngp makes you hate 3ds thats just a strange way of thinking unless your jealous of 3ds think about it!!!!!
I owned a 3DS but I sold it cause the software so far has been pretty crappy. All I'll say is I can understand the poor initial uptake of the platform, Nintendo should have held off and brought it in with a spectacular launch lineup as opposed to rushing it out leaving poor impressions with early adopters. Even further true as the 3DS system itself, feels unfinished. It is advertised to have functionality such as aweb browser, and store, however when you click these on the menu you're told that that feature doesn't yet exist, but will be provided in a future update. I believe the 3DS to be a good platform, but I feel Nintendo have done it an injustice in many, ways, name of the console, the rushed launch, the launch titles generally, the incomplete, system software. It'll still do well though, but I expect this next handheld generation to be much more, even, in regards to hardware sales.
3DS IS just an updated DSi, don't give me that "oh it has e-shop and a friend list, you don't know what your talking about!" NO, that stuff should have BEEN in the DS. It's not a SIGNIFICANT upgrade from the DSi is what Sony is trying to say, just adds 3D,a thumbstick and features to go with the 3D. NGP has 2 new thumbsticks, 3D enabled, touch screen on front AND back, cross-platform play,3G,bluetooth connectivity,front camera,rear camera,sixaxis motion, and trophy support. That's a SIGNIFICANT upgrade from the psp, and is not even including gimmicks like AR, gyroscope,accelerometer,update d graphics,etc. Stop being in denile 3DS users. Nintendo could have did a lot more for you guys with the 3DS
The NGP isn't 3D enabled.
@ sweatyflorida if dsi should of had those features then psp should of had a touchscreen and rear and front facing camera cause thats old too. dsi already did it.so what your saying just don't work!!and why do you care?i'm guessing sony already gave you a ngp and you love it so much that you want to come online and brag about it!or are just braging about a system you don't even own yet i'm just wondering? and you must own a 3ds and dsi sense you talk about them like you do!
sorry but I was talking about external features. Little features like that don't make or break a buy, which is why Dsi should have had it since it had online, common sense put in those extra features. PSP wasn't tailored for touchscreen which is why they didn't want it in (btw a friends list is old so your 3DS should have been had that! hell nintendo just jumped on board for thumbsticks! wake up!) I've wanted the 3DS as much as the next guy, but after learning every corner around its features and specs it wasn't much different from the Dsi (which I had) I've tried the 3DS so you can't say I don't know anything about the system, we have the internet too you know...oh wait and I'm not bragging and to assume that is immature, this whole story was bout the 3DS being an updated 3DS but no, you 3DS users had to backfire about "oh the NGP is just an upgrade too!" Well know duh Sherlock, every system in history is an upgrade. However the 3DS is less of a major upgrade from its predecessor than the NGP, FACT! and that's whats Sony is saying.
I think EA is the best Multi-plate company ever! I hope they show bf3 for the console players but I need to see the 64 players really bad!
Look I love my PS3, just like the next guy... but if anyone thinks that the 3DS is just a DS with 3D they are an idiot. A far as graphics go, yes the 3DS is not as powerful as the NGP. The power of the 3DS is close to the Wii while the regular DS was about the N64. If you need proof take the time to actually do some research: DS Resident Evil - http://www.youtube.com/watc... 3DS Resident Evil - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Clearly the graphical power has increased significantly from the DS and for a handheld looks pretty dang good. PlayStation fan-boys seem to think that the NGP is revolutionary but a lot of its features the DS and 3DS already have, so in a way the NGP is just catching up (of course is has some unique features too though). What else could the 3DS really improve over the DS... it already had most things one would want/need in a handheld device. In the end its all going to come down to games, and if Sony does what it did with the PSP... it will only appeal to the hardcore fan-boys and those who travel a lot were it would be a hassle to drag around a PS3 or Xbox. When I play a handheld I want a unique experience to that handheld (which Nintendo does well), not a console experience in my pocket that I can get on my console at home. Don't get me wrong I like games like Uncharted and Killzone but is that really worth buying a new expensive system + games for the few hours I'm not going to be home in a day just to get that SAME experience. Not to me... I hope Sony does more than just console games on the go, but judging from the launch line up that is yet to be determined. I have a 3DS and a PS3... and will get the NGP if Sony can give me games unique to that system.
I completely agree with you sir. The games need to be made for the Handheld, and that makes good handheld games. The only one I remember for the PSP was Patapon and that's all. The others were just little brothers from their PS2/3 counterparts, and that hurt the PSP a lot. And, at this rate, it'll hurt the NGP too.
