Why Sony handheld gaming devices are always the bridesmaid, never the bride, while Nintendo continues to be the handheld console king.
"Sony handhelds: always the bridesmaid" Somehow I knew that a girl gamer wrote this article
Nope, just a gamer who happens to also be a woman, which has no bearing on the article's validity.
What has this got to do with being m or f? Somebody really needs to grow up.
I don't think he said anything about the validity of the article. But I don't know any guys who would use bridesmaid as a descriptor. Nothing disrespectful about it.
@ruckus7s so what, a woman is still a woman, you cant fight against it when its WAYYYYYYY too obvious. on that, i need my sandwich.
Lol wow @ps360wiihdera. Although I agree with you, you are the last one that should be calling other people immature.
It's still true though.
What's up with the political police? Dude made a funny statement and all of a sudden everybody is the effin ACLU or something..I thought the same thing by the way...
They're the political police, and you are the defense attorney... I don't have a problem with the joke, however, I also have no problem with people responding if they were offended.
Wow, it was a joke about using the saying "always the bidesmaid" and how it stood out to me. Could you see a guy gamer using that saying? Sheesh, talk about the bad kind of "Double Ds", being dumb and defensive. Uh oh, that could be taken as a sexist joke by the people who think gaming and misogyny go hand in hand. Im not discrediting the writer and I never was, I only commented But if Im getting accused of that, I'll accuse all of you disagreeing and jumping on me for a little joke of doing that just because the girl that wrote the article is attractive.
There have been 2 Sony handhelds, that's it, and the second one only just came out. So this is a very premature article imo, and even if it is true, there is room for more than one handheld on the market. Competition creates better experience for consumers, without the PSP, God only knows how little Nintendo would have done with the DS.
lol just 2 hahahaha okay.. if you say so.
Erm...yeah. PSP and PS Vita. Iterations don't count because they are THE SAME CONSOLE, and I mean that for every manufacturer. Nobody says a Xbox 360 phat is a different console to an Xbox 360 S, they just look different.
Dude above you thinks PSP revisions count as different handhelds, clueless O-T Sony should focus on Home-Consoles + Smartphones and Tablets, why buy Ericcson share if they were going to make dedicated handhelds? screw that, put all that tech in Smartphones and make exclusive games for it, they could have done this years ago, I don't know what they're waiting...
lol then same goes for nintendo and the DS handhelds. Either way, so much for Sony game changer, the 3DS is still selling like hotcakes and Nintendo doing well... So much for those people that wanted to see them fail and become 3rd party like SEGA.
Take it easy pal, I know you go all defensive because Sony get in Nintendo territory, but Nintendo is OK, no need to go crazy attacking the competition of your brand of choise, I prefer 3 consoles manufacturers doing business than 1 running a monopoly Also, Vita was DOA, no one cares about it when you can have an Ipad3, smartphones and tablets will replace dedicated handhelds in the near future, Sony didn't have a chance lol
^They said the same thing about the 3DS being DOA earlier too and it didn't happen. So I'm not about to count out the Vita early in its life cycle nor will I just throw the entire market under the bus just yet.
At least the bridesmaid gets in a limo :D
Lets be fair though........... the psp IS AN AMAZING SYSTEM...........it has so many wonderful games I cant count.......... I dont care if the vita is second if it can deliver the kind of library the psp had
I stopped reading right here and now I regret I gave that OPoS a click. "No one really cared about the PSP"
Nintendo has something that Sony does not in handheld gaming industry. Experience, longevity, & the Nintendo games are the things Nintendo has over Sony. It also does not hurt that Nintendo's handhelds are affordable & cater to the younger generation. If things ever go wrong Nintendo can always throw out a Mario or Zelda or Pokemon game, brand name franchises that are household names. Sony right now does not have a franchise with that recognition...yet. I do have to hand it to Sony though is that after the setback that plagued the PSP (pirating) they are still hanging around. Where many have failed Sony should be pleased that both the PSP & Vita have taken marketshare away from Nintendo.
I can't wait for the PSVita to obliterate the 3DS. The 3DS deserves to fail because it simply isn't up to the standards of a true gamer.
And you're the authority on what makes a "true" gamer, then?
Say whatever you want to say. But it's safe to say that the Nintendo 3DS is an insult to gamer's in general. The PSVita is for true gamers. You can disagree, because I know many people who've made the mistake of buying the 3DS and are now raging about how great the PSVita is compared to the 3DS. The 3DS deserves to fail. I wish it does.
Based on conclusions I made from your comment, my pet rock is more of a true gamer than you.
You pitiful fanboy, it pains you to see the 3DS beat the psvita ti the ground. If it outsells well its for reason! True gamer pfft.
LOL... true gamer= someone who isn't a fanboy like you and owns 3DS AND Vita... What are the standard by the way? Better graphics? That all Vita REALLY has over 3DS...
Yeah, my copies of Resident Evil Revelations, Kid Icarus: Uprising and the upcoming Luigi's Mansion sequel beg to differ. It also has some really fun games on the eShop, not even counting the Virtual Console. Not to mention that downloadable titles are optional, not mandatory (looking at you PSPGo). Kindly remove your head from your bum. The 3DS is also a good piece of hardware and I've met few people who aren't satisfied with it as of its price drop. It does not deserve to fail because it by and large is not a failure so much as a late bloomer.
Thankfully I didn't fall into the trap of being controlled by Nintendo's manifestation of crappy hardware this current generation, because all I see here is infected Nintendogs ruthlessly loving their weak mother handheld, the 3DS. All I have to say to you animals is that it's okay, you will change and move on to the Vita way. People and animals make mistakes, just like those people who spent $250 on the 3DS on launch day, and the goons who still buy it now. There are a ton of reasons as to why the 3DS doesn't represent true gamers and is bringing the destruction to handheld gaming, but I won't bother wasting my time here and instead just mention one compulsory aspect of a true gamer; one who uses dual analog sticks. Period. The 3DS deserves to fail. End of discussion.
@Unexpecta Are you psychotic or just completely out of touch with reality? Either that or an incredibly obnoxious troll. Expect to lose your bubbles very quickly.
How the FUCK??????? Is Kid Icarus not for True gamers? how about? Street Fighter IV DOA Dimensions Resident Evil Revelations Ocarina of Time 3D Samurai Warrriors Metal Gear Solid Shin MegaTen Devil Survivor Ghost Recon Steel Diver And the list goes on
Its true but im very happy sony had the guts to challenge nintendo because it would be boring without compitition. We got some decent games on psp and now the vita can carry the torch. Sony hasnt learned though, ds/3ds are great because they have a crazy amount of 3rd party support, creative games, and the nolstalgia factor (platfomers and nintendo games).
I love both for different reasons. The vita is more impressive graphically but i love the 3d on the 3ds. I also love the dual screens and how small and compact it is.
Both handheld are good with their own share of good qualities and games. It ultimately comes down to taste and value. I love my 3DS and I'm sticking with it. I do want a Vita but I feel it's too much money for too little.
no one wanted the psp other than over 70million gamers
65 million of those are pirates. lol
