Wow! Definitely pulling out the big guns here. 3DS, your response?

MasterCornholio2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

Luigis Mansion and Kid Icarus?

Just saying that Nintendo has some pretty big games coming out for the 3DS in the near future.

3DS reponse is out there, it's called the trinity in Japan = MK7 + SM3D + Ex-PSP-Franchise Exclusive Sequel called Monster Hunter TG, although, outside of Japan nobody gives a F*** about MH lol

Idk, unless COD Vita becomes a success, Cross Platform Gaming becomes a must feature for people and Real Support from SCE Top Tier Developers is done (and talking about New IPs exclusive to the Portable, not spin-offs and s***), I can't see the Vita doing that good, best case scenario would be matching PSP sales, not good when the idea is to increase marketshare :P

Edit

Also, SCE needs to communicate what's the purpose of 3G, I don't see why I'd pay $25 per month to use a browser without flash and sync trophies, GPS is nice the first time, the you stop caring...

is it for XGC? there will be games capable of playing online with 3G? (don't think so) why a 2GB cap? it isn't to dd games, as there are bigger games than the typical IOS s***, in that case why have it?

THESONYPS32076d ago

Really? Luigis Mansion and Kid lucarus? LOL!
I dont think they really match up to COD, MK and AC. so LOL!

dedicatedtogamers2076d ago

Yeah...Luigi's Mansion and Kid Icarus ain't gonna do big numbers. Feel free to bookmark this post. I'll bet 3 million TOPS for either game.

As for Mario Kart 7, Super Mario Land 3D, and Monster Hunter...yeah, those are big games NOW, but what is the 3DS's response when Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, etc hit the Vita? Hmmm?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Nintendo obviously isn't going to release yet another Mario Kart or another Mario Land game next year, so what do they have up their sleeve? Kid Icarus? Yeahh...

zero_cool2076d ago

Healthy Competition= Win-Win Situation!

Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!

Muffins12232076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

to bad more than half of the people buying those games are younger than 14

ShinMaster2075d ago (Edited 2075d ago )

Sounds like someone's jealous of the PS Vita or stuck with a 3DS.

The Vita has new IPs(get informed) and has less spin-offs than the 3DS has remakes.
And you don't have to pay anything to use the Web browser which uses HTML5 btw (again, get informed).

I understand that you can't get a lot of its features on the 3DS, but no need to pull sh** out of your ass like that.

Nice try though.

lots and lots of mario

SilentNegotiator2076d ago

And then more Mario, another veritable Ocarina remake, metroid, Mario, Mario, and perhaps even some Mario.

BiggsnWedge2076d ago

Well none of the games listed in the title are really kid friendly so eh..

ShinMaster2075d ago

Metroid? I wish dude.
Nintendo won't even support that franchise properly.

metsgaming2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

When the marketing for vita picks up more info about these games needs to be announced especially COD. People will see the ads and looks to see what games it has and it would be beneficial if they see COD with some footage or recent news about it.

btw doesnt 3ds have its own assasins creed game in the making aswell? Hopefully its not the same game as the vita one it would be gimped and that would not be good.

doctorstrange2076d ago

Sony shouldn't wait till E3 to show off COD, they should show it to the mainstream TV watchers as soon as Acti lets them

MasterCornholio2076d ago

I thought Ubisoft cancelled Assasins Creed on the 3DS.

XperiaRay

metsgaming2076d ago

oh and dont forget about that bioshock game thats another heavy hitter but it will probably release much later.

Slade2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

so the vita gets 3 ports of games people already have on consoles.

The 3ds gets kindgom hearts, a new image epoch game, a new level 5 game

new content.

Ask sony about how ports are going over in japan...........they arent selling

smashcrashbash2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

Of course ignoring the ports that that the 3DS is getting as usual. The VITA will sell better in Japan once games like Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, Dynasty Warriors, DJMAX and Sumioni come out.

@ remanutd55. It's it convenient that people only concentrate on what ports the VITA is getting instead of being excited for all the new games we are getting like Gravity Rush, Dragon's Crown, Escape Plan, Shinobo, Sound Shapes,Warrior's Lair etc. I can't believe after the list of games that you have seen that aren't mere sequels or ports that people are still using that as a stupid excuse. 'Why should I buy a VITA when I can just buy UC3 and R3 for the PS3'. Get current or shut up.

pythonxz2076d ago

Ports? Nintendo has mastered the art of porting games from older systems to bolster their library. I'm not saying it isn't working, but they are lacking on the "new content" front. Their first- party games for the 3DS are mostly blatant ports/remasters of the same tired franchises. Franchises that have so high of a number sequels that it makes Final Fantasy look like a child in comparison.

Solid_Snake372076d ago

Lol and the 3ds has been getting alot of remakes dont you think?

MariaHelFutura2076d ago

As much as I can't stand COD, that is going to be HUGE for the PSVita. It should move many many systems, which I'm all for. The more Vita sold, the more Sony will take chances w/ original creative IPs.

mynameisEvil2076d ago

It's amazing how kids will get their parents to buy them a Vita for the same game they got on... consoles. And I doubt their parents are gonna get the 3G version, so don't say he can "CoD online on the go!" because my Wi-Fi lasts until the end of the street... and we're a house away from that street.

You know, I'm all for supporting Vita, but I don't want to find some CoD-kid hopping on the multiplayer of another game I have and spreading their crap around.

Oh, and it's funny (yeah, I'm about to go slightly off-topic) because the voice actors *several of them, anyway) for MW3 were just telling stories of getting recognized by parents that ended up calling their kids. So, they definitely know who the main audience of that franchise is.

Anyway, I'm gonna end up on something my dog was boning earlier if I keep on, so this comment shall now end... because I apparently ahve to announce it.

Shok2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

Resident Evil Revelations.

And what do you mean what's the 3DS's response? What's the Vita's response for getting Monster Hunter STOLEN?

Jus saying, these 3 games put together still don't match up to the importance Monster Hunter has in the handheld market.

farhad2k82076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

This is a juicy piece of news right here, and their plan actually sounds like it may actually work. Although I want EVERY SINGLE VITA GAME on launch LOL
But to release the major titles in different periods is a good idea.

A few other titles that would make me jizz would be Gran Turismo, Killzone and Battlefield!
I really can't wait for the VITA, just over 38 days left guys!! It's so close I can taste it! I can taste LIFE!

mafiahajeri2076d ago

If their ports I dont care and alot of people wont either. I hope the MK game is a Shaolin Monks type game wit hSub-zero and Scorpion the one that got canceled.

SM was a really under rated game.

Optical_Matrix2076d ago

Dedicatedtogamers, you say 3 million aren't big numbers, and yet for portable games that phenomenal. How many PSP games or core DS games aside from Nintendo's first party ones do you know that sold that much. Get out of here with your foolishness.

And once Pokemon gets released to the 3DS..

Sony your response?

Hate to say it but the big N has some powerful crack against the VITA.

Not that I really care tho. Don't like those games (except the 2d old mario games).

For me. COD to stop people whining about sales.

Sev2076d ago

Yeah, I think COD on the go is Sony's ace up their sleeve.

guitarded772076d ago

CoD will move a lot of units... especially with the dual analog sticks.

metsgaming2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

it better not be gimped like some of the vita games that for no reason dont have the multiplayer in them.

mafiahajeri2076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

Agree 100% So many COD fans will get a VITA just for COD. But with that being said the online capabilties have to be there. Half the people I know who play COD havent even played the SP (Alot of people are the same)

Anyway all this talk about the VITA being doomed is BS mainly sites trying to create drama for hits a sad fact of game journalisim today.

farhad2k82076d ago (Edited 2076d ago )

@metsgaming
Are you honestly stupid?
CoD is known ONLY for their multipalyer experience, if CoD had no Multiplayer, there would be no CoD. They're smart enough to know that after their last 4 games broke sales records.

I am willing to bet my future VITA! That's how sure I am that CoD for VITA will have Multiplayer!

But Activision/Infinity Ward need to be smart here. They need to create a 3v3 or 2v2 match for the 3G network as it can't handle too much bandwidth. If they can pull something like that off, the VITA will sell more units than any hand held EVER.

Majin-vegeta2076d ago

MK for me and god i hope i never run into someone playing cod on the Vita and hear him rage then again it will be funny if i do xD.

lorianguy2076d ago

I'd rather be sat next to a screaming baby on the bus than some kid raging at his CoD game, despite them being the same thing.

GraveLord2076d ago

Do you mean run into him in real life or in-game?
If you meant in-game I'm pretty sure it would operate on different servers!

cervantes2402076d ago

Fingers crossed that COD Vita will actually be released in 2012, because that would be a huge killer app for them.

Rainstorm812076d ago

They are bringing the heavy hitters . the vita will give you that handheld console experience the PSP coouldnt deliver on

remanutd552076d ago

that is what im hoping for
