SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has indicated that his company is interested in Nintendo’s recently announced Wii U
Can't wait to see what they come up with.
it would definitely be massive
let nintendo do their own thing. Sony should continue to focus on 3d gaming and do something original with their tech instead of matching the other guy.
Agree with darthv. Let Nintendo do their thing. Sony should stay focus on 3D gaming and more power to graphics. Ultra HD for the PS4 will be nice. And please let us finally have that crazy cross game chat.
Whoa... lets not get carried away here. Wii U has not sold me just yet. Blue tooth and Wifi are on the Vita so replicating a streamed experience is possible as the PSP could play PS3 games this gen like Lair and Bionic Commando. I need to see how useful this setup really is besides playing the game in bed. instead of on the TV.
You can't use the Wii U in bed, it has to be in the same room as the Wii.
Exactly I have all my consoles in my room.
Honestly the most hilarious idea about this is that most people who are cheering Nintendo for being first to launch to market this console don't realize that the WiiU console is on par and marginally superior to the PS3 which has been in the market for 5 years and yet the PS Vita will be launched before the Wii U launches and would most likely have the same tech implemented at Vitas launch before the Wii U.
I believe that. And the Vita looks like it would be a better controller than the Wii U controller. That new Wii U controller looks too big and cumbersome, but I haven't felt it yet so I dunno, really, but just judging it by appearances, it just seems unwieldy. I'll judge for myself when I inevitably buy one 18 months from now.
Nobody agrees with me? What do you disagree with, that the PS3 + Vita can do mostly all of the same things, or that the controller for the Wii U looks disarmingly large?
Every WiiU console will have this tablet, and only some of PS3 users will have Vita. So it will never be the same because Sony wouldn't develop game that makes good use of that only for small portion of gamers. BTW, I don't like this tablet also, it is to ugly.
not every ps3 owner has Move but it's optional. I think they'd do the same here. Also i read that the wiiU will have standrad controllers as well so everyone may not even get the screen one but we have to see.
It's completely possible. Think of it this way. If Sony dropped the PS3 price to $199 USD and the Vita is $249, you could bundle them together for $450. That is my guess where the Wii U will release, or at least $399. That would do it there. I get a console and a handheld that can do "most" of that that Wii U does and I can take the Vita with me when I leave.
Add in move controllers and all that other stuff the price jumps. is the ps move ,psv and ps3 guaranteed to work with each other? and if they do its for 1 game vs a whole lineup on the wiiu by default. no dev is gonna risk making a game like that for such a small demographic. lookin at 600 out the box vs 299 or 349 Nintendo price. to me you have wiiu with the nice pad thats meant for the system not something you walk outside with whats the point of that. wiiu currently works with the wiiu controller and 4 wii motes and all the wii accessories. games Taylor made to the wiiu ...
That could go either way. I could add accessories to the Wii U bundle to increase it's price. Not necessary. PS3 with a Vita bundle is all that is necessary. All games for the Wii U will be designed for the controller, but that does not guarentee it will work great or be good (See the Wii). With the PS3 and Vita, You know the quality of what your getting. You have games that you can play at home and continue while your away by transfering saved data to the Vita. A benefit that someone who travels would appreciate. The Wii U keeps you grounded to being with the console. I like how you can play the games on the controller if the TV is not available, but this will not work for all games. The gold video showed the controller showing the lie of the ball. Can't do that and play on the screen at the same time. I'm not sure the Wii U is the right direction to go in. It may have been better to market the controller as an add on than as the new console. I see more future in a PS3/Vita combo than the Wii U. Existing library, software quality, portability, new IP's, I'm putting my bet on the Vita. Based off of what has been revealed, the Wii U console is pretty powerful. That will not be cheap. The Wii cost $199 until recent price drops, so the Wii U is goung to cost more than that with the console alone. Add that controller and I doubt it will come out less than $399.
everyone who has used wii u controller says it feel good in the hand. Nintendo is not going to put out a controller that does not feel good.
I've always liked the competition between Sony and Nintendo. They are mostly amicable and both deliver a wide variety of experiences on their consoles.
What are you talking about? At best the two companies aren't on speaking terms because of what happened between them that created the PS1, and Nintendo hasn't really been in a good rival position since then until now. The N64 and Gamecube were not consoles which went in similar directions to the PS1 and PS2. The WiiU pretty much signifies Nintendo trying to go head to head against both Sony and MS.
"The WiiU pretty much signifies Nintendo trying to go head to head against both Sony and MS." I disagree, maybe if they had've come out with the WiiU this gen they would be going up against Sony and MS, but the WiiU is a next gen console and will be up against the PS4 and Nextbox, which we can assume will both be much more powerful. Also after seeing that the WiiU is like a giant DS, it's clear they're still a casual gamers company... Of coarse the WiiU is going to seem more powerful compared to current gen consoles, just like if you compared the current Wii with a PS2... One is a generation ahead of the other. Why would they try to go hardcore, when they've been incredibly successful in the casual market?
Thing is by the time the PS4 and Nextbox are out, the WiiU will likely be well entrenched into the general consumer market. With Nintendo ready with price drops and possibly a good amount of 3rd party support which by then will be honestly adjusted to current gen game making. By that I mean if "next gen" consoles repeat the early errors which happened, short buggy games and overly complex game engines, the WiiU will still have a later gen grace period of programming familiarity and experience. If not that bit more of power over the 360 and PS3. In other words, while the PS4 and Nextbox will be seeing games like Haze ant the first Earth Defense Force, 3rd party devs will being making GOW2 level games on the WiiU. Thought they still have to deal with that stupid joystick pad...
Sony and Nintendo are the Old heavy hitters and innovators while 360 is always behind easy multiplatform money..Kinect being an exception though
Lol, it kills me how wrong you are. Super double post...how did that happen???
Lol, it kills me how wrong you are. Each company has brought something to the table some more than others no doubt.
nintendo is the ONLY innovator sony just copys them look at move and the wii mote and now this.
I'm pretty sure Move was being developed around the Wii coming out and I'm also pretty sure the PSP2 (Vita) was made before the Wii U was announced. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I seriously doubt that. Also, it's pretty expensive anyway to have to spend over $450 to get something half baked.
What is that, is half backed hence you my kind sir? Have you seen Ruin yet?, it is simply doing what Wii U is trying to but solidly UuU, what doesn't give you the thought of ps3 being any cheaper when Wii U launch comes next year or dicember? Thinking narrow aren't we? I already have a ps3, how about you? guess no. Edit> yeah guys, see how sony is taking the most out of nintendo bad moves http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Seem like vita WILL not be region locked mate, simply, we have a winner.
In case you didn't notice, you have to buy a PS3 AND a vita to do what the WiiU does. And, seeing what Sony show us about Vita, you'll have to buy the game twice. And that's the fail of it: You have PS3, or you have Vita. Even if you buy both consoles, will you buy the same game for both consoles? Me neither. So, technically speaking, it's not as cheap as you want to see.
@mamotte Maybe to play mobile games the Vita would need another game card but it wouldn't be needed to be used as a tablet controller for the PS3. Furthermore, Reggie was talking about how the cost of the WiiU would be justified by the type of experience the user will have. Would the PS3.PSV experience not be worth the same if not more than the WiiU? Would that not justify a higher cost if you got a better experience?
"What is that, is half backed hence you my kind sir? " That was totally incoherent. Don't people even read over their comments before posting?
Remote play with psp is very laggy and only sounds good in theory. Nobody can tell me otherwise as I own a PS3 and PSP...I just keep it real on N4g...sorry. And I wasn't impressed by Ruin either.
Something tells all the contrary about you having a ps3 mate, which i doubt through my deeper thoughts, sry UuU. Nintendo fanboy trying to downplay a console that is doing what their company is trying to but heftier? hurt your fan pride doesnt it? The time Wii U launch, ps3 wont be 300 anymore, mark it. Psp, ps3 remote's play didn't take place hence psp not being able to work properly cus of its capabilities, ps3 had to do all the processor power but vita won't need to rely on that. Keeping it real isn't obviously enough, try keeping it concupiscent, will do you good, peace.
^^^^ LOL Owned! I agree klado
Shouldn't the title be flipped around?
scavengers nintendo innovate, sony imitate. nintendo is basically sony's research and development department
Except Playstation was already experimenting with this idea with the PSP, ages ago.
They always say that, just look at PS Move..
Except Nintendo were doing this with the Gamecube and GBA years ago...
@LoaMcLoa Only they didn't just say it they actually done it during PSP era. PS1 save transfer to continue right where you left off or remote play to change to the PSP and play games that support it. PSP Vita just makes it better without doing any of the middle stuff and allowing us to do it from in-game on both games. It's just like Wii U from what i have seen. Other then the other stuff, yeah it's different then,but for play anywhere you want PS Vita does it better (I can go anywhere whereas Wii U will be limited by distance) http://www.youtube.com/watc... psp
@LoaMcLoa Actually, PS Move is an EXCELLENT example. Here's some footage from 11 years ago. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@Squatch83 Except Sony's has been doing this with the pocket station since the Playstation 1 and that's almost 2 decades ago. Nintendo fanboys are just uninformed bunch and they think Nintendo invented gaming..
i dont understand, how could sony copy if the vita was announced first.
@SilentNegotiator: That's an impressive argument. However Nintendo has been tinkering with motion-controls since the early 90s with the power glove and U-Force.
Pocketstation only played Minigames though, wasnt used to control PS1 games or play PS1 games on the Pocketstation.
So just because theres a youtube video means sony did it first? You dont think nintendo had the idea also. And the difference is nintendo takes the chances (ex.motion controls)and make it a standard for their system. And it pays off super big time. So it doesnt matter who came up with it first its all about who implemented it first and succeeded.
How are Sony imitating when PS Vita was revealed earlier this year? And on the same day Sony and Kojima productions discussed the concept of using the machine for cloud gaming between the PS3 and PS Vita, as well as cross platform play between the two devices. The only difference is that PS Vita is a machine rather than a controller like the Wii U controller.
@pcz I don't really agree nor disagree with you, but I would like to point out that nintendo possibly could have been inspired by the psps ability to function as a controller in the game Lair. Yes, it was only used in one game, but the whole idea of display-controller was kind of invented by sony.
The idea isnt new or original. its just nintendo are the first to take the bold step to fully integrate it as a standard method of play. Just like they did with wiis motion control. sony/microsoft didnt fully integrate motion control right from the start, they took half steps and used peripheral upgrades to add those features. nintendo are making this console/handheld feature an essential part of what makes wiiu.. it is wiiu! but sony are taking half steps again instead of fully committing. ps3 and vita do interface with eachother, but it was never sonys intention for their interface to be a permanent feature- like wiiu. what does that tell you? sony arent innovators at all, mere imitators. watching what others do first, then try to use what ever resources they can to make the same work for them. you can say the vita can do that all you like, it wasnt built for that purpose alone. but sony will be opportunistic and try to make the vita do things it just wasnt designed to do. its just desperate. sony should do them, and innovate in ways they think would be interesting. not just wait for nintendo to make the first move then say 'we can do that too.' thats such a cowardly way to do business, its also not good for consumers. i want something new and interesting. sony copying is doing no good for anybody, and over saturating the industry, we need variety. Yes, the vita and ps3 probably can do what wiiu sets out to do, but why copy it? all it is doing to giving more strength to nintendo's idea, but at the expense of diversity in the market.
@pcz Making arguments like yours I am sure were like arguments over the space race. Both sides were researching similar technologies but one showed it off before the other...and in the end it didn't really matter anyway. Bottom line is that Nintendo will still have an inferior console by the time that all next-gen consoles are released. It is still even possible that the current gen console will still eclipse the capabilities of the WiiU within their lifetime. There is already speculation and promise of that possibility. Edit: @pcz So you are saying Sony did not innovate with the PSV?
I havnt read much about this to be honest. Will Vita actually play streamed PS3 games actually on screen on the Vita itself? If not, how are they gonna be the same? If its just gonna be a PS3 controller, then thats nothing new.
Exactly, but stop using your good brain on here...lol.
They had this years ago where you'd stream the game onto your psp from your ps3 so you see and control the game on your psp. now if they do the same thing plus all the touch and motion sensing that'll bascaially be what the wii u's doing, besides the fact that PSV also functions as its own dedicated gamming device.
Exactly, but stop using your good brain on here...lol. but it will be a great oled capacitive screen with vita
Okay Vita and PS3 work together. No need for everyone to bash each other about it. I bet if Microsoft had a handheld and did the same thing, people would make the same arguement with the PS3 and 360.
All I know is..if I have to buy a ps3 version and a vita version of the same game for this combo vita controller thing to work....then its not gonna work
First of all for wiiu I only need 1 system. Second of all I dont need to pay for the game twice like the ps3 and vita @Below The article did If the ps3 and vita truely matched the wii u, you wouldnt have to buy games like they are multiplats.
Where did anybody say you'd need to buy the game twice?
wait does wii u have an HD player?...
No they can't- they don't have any Nintendo franchises. The best franchises in the industry.
cant wait to see the two games sony does with vita before it losses all support .
Come on sony! isn't the PsMove enough?
i hate how people talk about sony copying wii with playstation move, they looked into that kindof stuff in the ps2 days, and it's a trillion times better.
PsMove wouldn't exist without the wii, trillion times better? funny since the tech is almost 100% identical. Nintendo looked into "that kind of stuff" during the ps2 days too, since the wii came out 2006 and nintendo had the balls to make a console with.
the tech is not almost 100% identical at all, the wii uses sensors in the controller and infrared. and without the wii motion plus it can, at the most tell direction, and thrust and stuff. with the motion plus it knows the exact tilt in all directions. playstation move has a camera that sees the glowing ball on the tip of the controller. and the sensors in the remote already do what the motion plus would've done. so it knows how far back, forward, up , or down, left, or right the controller is. so it knows everything about the controller. so if i throw a grenade, i'm actually throwing it wherever i want. it's cool. but i do agree with its existence being pressured into by the wii
if i want their to be a feature that's comes out of the wii u, then i want it to be the ability to be able to play ps3 games on your controller while someone's watching tv, and to be able to use it as a ps3 remote. it honestly has more control then a dualshock
even so - it's impossible you have to pay 300 bucks for console and 300 for controller think this way sony stop making words that fool can eat them
