Reggie Fils-Aime speaks to Nintendo fans via twitter.
5 minutes ago "@Sony - $250 Vita? OH NO ABANDON SHIP!!" So, the video is basically: "we're practicing, we have stuff to talk about and announce at E3" O'RLY, Nintendo?!
PSV will surely take atleast 45% of the hardware market share against 3DS. Game sales will be atleast at 60% because of replay value. All 3DS has going for them is name brand and 1st party exclusives.
45%? No. While the Vita was smartly priced (great move on Sony's part), the 3DS will still severely outsell it due to it having a lot more casual appeal. Do you see kids walking around with Mario or Drake, for instance? Also, the $250 price tag will only make Nintendo drop the price of the 3DS quicker. The 3DS only cost $100 to make, so Nintendo could even drop it to $150 and still make a nice profit off of it. Nintendo simply has flexibility with the 3DS's price.
Show me games, not hardware! Uncharted looks awesome but what other games are there except for PS3 ports? (I did not watch the Sony conference yesterday so correct me if I'm wrong). The 3DS will easily sell out the Vita but Vita since there is more casual gamers than hardcore gamers around. Vita will surely be the best one though, just hope they don't disappoint with the games.
I can give you two good reasons. Third party developers will be more inclined to make PSV games because they don't have to compete with Nintendo 1st party games. The system is more flexible for game development with a touch screen and two sticks. Essentially you have a slightly weaker version of the 360 and PS3 in a handheld. The online capabilities and the two sticks are very attractive to developers especially with the game sales and popularity of FPS and TPS games. The major FPS and TPS games easily outsell any major Nintendo 1st party game outside of Super Smash and Mario Kart. Even if you put an average shooter like Rainbow Six on PSPV with all the features from the console version it will sell 1 million copies due to the competitive online community.
Enough about the hardware. The same EXACT thing was said about the PSP, and how it would dominate the gaming world due to it's new technology in a handheld. Yeah, that didn't happen.
These are very early days, it's pointless to speculate about market share.
Were did you get that number? 45%? did you just make that up?
UMMM, WHO DOESN'T REHEARSE Im pretty sure Sony and Microsoft did the same just saying, and the PSVita isn't that expensive who was crying I ask?. It's same price as a 3DS dude, soo... yeah
I don't agree Shok.Mainly because there's been reports on the 3DS's negative effects on consumers. A more powerful handheld as the same price as the competition? Vita wins.Nintendo needs to drop the price on the 3DS.
lol what negative effect on comsumers i found the vita cool too but the 3DS will outsell vita. The one thing nintendo do's well is run the handheld market.I bet they drop the price but who knows.
Time to buckle up. Its going to be a bumpy ride.
If Nintendo announces a new good console with a big rpg title line up consider me sold but if it's just gonna be shooter fest crap I don't really give a !
says the guy with the name KILLZONE3helghast with a matching avatar.
I like the story and characters :] sue me
Give me a Phoenix Wright console game and I'll buy the console 5x if necessary XD
My body is ready....
My body is ready.
Lol @ the disagree. So his body isn't ready? Hehe.
did he say new system(s) ? more than one new system?
I wonder what the 25th Anniversary Zelda surprise is! And I wonder how far Nintendo will go with Project Cafe! Would be cool if they surprised everybody and came with a console with graphics as powerful as a computer playing BF3 with full graphics settings. Highly doubt that though. Would also be nice to have some more information on Skyward and maybe a release date. :)
Lets not forget , nintendo has Franchises that have been successfull on the Nintendo Handhelds for decades. Pokemon, mario, zelda, Cooking Mamma :) etc... I would not count Nintendo out of the picture, Both 3DS and psVita Deliver something new and fun. If they make a good pokemon game for 3DS, it will draw me closer to it.. Most likly ill buy both XD
Watching the conference live and alive.It will be exciting.
i dont know why people think vita is going to compete with 3ds. its just the same story as psp vs ds but for the next gen. psp had better tech but ds still pissed on it. what makes you think vita is any different?
PSV> NINTENDO HANDHELD?????????? as much of a pro anything site this has become and I definitely know how much bombs are coming my way but there are certain things that just don't make sense and thats at the top! remind how much the ds has sold gba and the gameboy, and tell me with a straight face you didn't come to n4g without your fanboy goggles with a hard on for a certain company.
You will see a 3DS price cut soon. Before the Vita is released, 3DS price will drop. If not, Nintendo is in a world of hurt with this handheld.
bad enough they let them get a 3.6 million lead head start and by the time Vita is launched, there will be plenty of 3DS games to choose from including Mario Zelda and Animal Crossing. What happens if 3DS hits at least 10 mill before Vita launches? It's very well possible this could happen.
My body is Reggie.
god damn, nintendo is gonna bury vita and everything else. Today is gonna be huge. Welcome back old school Big N.
