The Nintendo 3DS will be out on 25 March, giving it a significant headstart on the Sony NGP, which isn't due out until Christmas. But eager gamers will be agonising over whether to wait for Sony's device, or splurge on Nintendo's 3D offering.
Lets See Sony NGP Will Have The Best Specs Ever Seen In A Handheld While 3DS Will Have Shovelware, Headaching 3D & PSP 1 Graphics, Hmmm A Tough One
ahhaha couldn't have said it any better myself.
I bought PSP day 1 and I'm going to buy PSP2 day 1. I never bought a DS but I'm interested in 3D gaming so I might buy a 3DS lite when it comes out.
3D doesn't give me headaches but as a gamer I'm getting both day one. As long as the PSP2 price is less than 350
Im a gamer too but only getting the PSP2. Im using my 3DS money to buy more PSP2 games. Hope Im not offending 3DS fanboys.
but itz got teh 3D TEH 3D!
i just hope its under 300 but even if its not i bought a ps3 for 599 and was glad but i think sony will price this right
cos the NGP has old feautures DS has had since 2005. touchscreen, mic, and it has cameras like the DSi. So two can play that game. In all fairness, those reasons you named could very well be what makes 3DS a beast in sales. Also, Resident Evil, DOA, Kid Icarus, Mario, Zelda, Starfox, Splintercell, StreetFighter 4, and the like clearly doesn't count as Shovelware, and these are just the games that we know of.
I'll wait thank you.
im srry 3ds is way higher then psp so dont go saying 3ds is the same as psp1 and for shovle ware nintendo handhelds never have shovles ware unlike the psp which is just gona get 1000 ports cus the dev cost r gona be to high
Right because Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64 aren't ports. /sarcasm
3DS is for casuals and people with N64 nostalgia. I'm not in either category so I'll take the PS3 go.
3DS has actually show games that aren't ports. my top 3 are definitely not ports. Kid Icarus, Resident Evil Revelations, and DOA. Aside from MGS, Starfox,Zelda, and Streetfighter, nothing else is a port. That is a new Paper Mario coming a new pilot wings a new nintendogs a new IP Steel Diver a new ghost recon a new IP Rodea the Sky soldier a new Saints Row is coming according to E3 so yeah, i doubt Nintendo is dumb enough to give just ports
Actually its for gamers and we already know that is something you Sony fanboys are not.
nintendo are basically rehashing mario zelza and 1 or 2 others
LOL nintendo is infested with shovle ware.
3DS is getting all boring games.. whereas PSP 2 is getting games like Killzone, Uncharted, Call of Duty, Resistance & lots lots more. 3DS is no match for the PSP 2.
So you'll just be playing portable versions of the exact same games you've been playing this gen? Wow yeah that really sounds like a lot of fun and here I thought getting a sequel to a game from the 80s was good. Guess that is just rehashing to you though right? Sony people kill me.
killzone, call of duty, uncharted and those other games... proves what i am saying... same old shit, but now portable. thats all. no new dimension to the game, except now you can play it on the bus, or on the toilet. 3ds takes old games and transforms them into new experiences, you will experience them in a way you have never before. some futuristic 3d shit! and the new games will be even more futuristic. 3d f zero? yes fucking please! psp2 owners are going to be jealous. and broke.
EDIT: Never mind I get you now, didn't see the GOING to be
we all know financially which one will do better, but the rest is all opinion.
lol let the dellusional sony fanboys have there 15 minutes of joy because once the 3ds comes out and runs laps around this in sales........then they will eat it again..... And whats worse shovelware (that both systems will have) or ps3 ports that are better played on the ps3? Because at least with the few ports for the 3ds there are (zelda, shin megami devil survivor overclock, star fox) they are better than what was previously available
And I guess fanboys pretending to be neutral like you will root for the 3DS and hope that the PSP2 fails. You would support a fat turd and call it the second coming as long as it has a chance of beating anything that Sony comes out with. Admit it.
damn, seven disagrees? looks like stealth20k has some multiple accounts
Sorry, I always forget sales mean everything recently *rolls eyes*/
Honestly, the only thing that really held back the original PSP was the lack of a second analog stick. That was the reason why games were "better played on PS3"...it was a control issue. Oh...and the games that you speak of aren't PS3 ports...just as RE, DoA, Kid Icarus, etc. aren't ports. The games ARE actually new games. GoW has had it's history enriched by 2 games on PSP. KZ Liberation took a FPS and turned it into a successful top down, isometric view shooter. I can go on. The difference really only lies in preference for games. If you want the nostalgia of Nintendo you get the best from 3DS. If you are more into games from this generation you go with the PSP 2. Or...get em both and get the best of both worlds.
i dont care getting both day one
There will be competition. 3DS is going to sell like crazy around here, and i can say the same for the PSP2. If the price is right, i might end getting both.
No, there's no way the PSP2 will sell well. I just can't see Sony pricing that under $350. I predict a very slow start, just like the PS3.
Well personally i want the NGP, that's more of my speed; I want ps3 gaming on the go.
The one thing that will probably give Nintendo the upper hand will be the 3D capabilities of the 3DS. I still find it weird that for all the pushing that Sony has done on the 3D stuff, their handheld didn't seem to have any 3D capabilities.
i remember reading something where Sony said the 3DS' 3D technology isn't of high quality and doesn't work or something like that... correct me if im wrong..
If this thing is more than $250 ill pass . it does exceed the 3ds in horse power but so did the psp with the ds we all know how this will turn out
Love my PSP but you pretty much just nailed it IMO. I fear this kinda tech in a portable device will drive the price way too high for the average consumer, or parent for that matter. Don't get me wrong, for the right price I'd definitely pick this up before the 3DS, but Nintendo has made portable gaming it's bitch for 22 years for a reason.... Just sayin'
cant i just get both? theyre both bound to have some top notch games :P
Of course you can. Not everybody can, but for those that can and want to, they will. All I can say about both handhelds is one word, made up of 3 letters that represent 3 words, repeated many times... RPG, RPG, RPG, RPG, RPG!
thats exactly why im getting a 3ds, ds seems to get all the rpg love these days and i want in!
Lol, apparently every gaming website on the internet is doing these Vs articles. Get it out of your system now, internet. My answer is yes, it's worth waiting for. I'm just getting the 3DS first.
Just because the ps3 had a 599.99$ price tag at release (which is the only Sony console or portable console that made it to that price) doesn't mean that the psp2 will have a crazy price tag to.
My guess? Three Hundred Ninety-Nine U S Dollars!!! seriously.
I saw it today on gamespot for 999.99$ :D
i think the max it will be is 350dollars.whatever it is i hope its not like the 3ds in europe where the retailers decide the price im paying 270euro for a 3ds !
The 3DS is still the most interesting device (so far) to me. The PSP 2 is a nice device but doesn't seem to bring anything new to the table. Sure the specs are awesome but all it seems like is a portable PS3. While that may appeal to many people, it just doesn't appeal to me.
Sony wont win because they are using the same strategy they always have, and people keep falling for it. their strategy is basically: do the same as before but make it more powerful. as powerful as money can buy. and douche bags lap it up. its nothing new. infact, i would even go as far to say that the psp2 is oldschool. its no more exciting than it was when you first saw a game gear and realised the megadrive was portable. its no different. portable ps3 graphics, well done. but what is new here? nothing. and then theres the little thing of cost. how much will this thing cost? 400-500pounds. it will not sale. nintendo always win because they offer something that is great and affordable. the 3ds at least pretends to be doing something new. i can't believe the psp2 doesnt do 3d... how shit and old school is that. i also like how sony ripped of the ds's dual screen, except for just shoving it around the back to try to appear original. its ripping off the ds! the 3ds will win, just like the wii did, because nintendo are one step ahead. people want something new, not just the old, but now portable. the psp has nothing new, its oldskool
LOL. I guess all anti Sony fanboys unit! Yeah! /s So, the NGP introduces a new reverse touch, which works as a double touch. The 3DS introduces 0 (as in zero) new game play elements (3D display is not a game play element). Yet, the 3DS is innovative, but the NGP is not. I must be stupid, because I can't see the logic. And of course. It's Sony. It must be ripped off. At least from something. Say, err. Nintendo, just for being original in the statement. Oh please. Can Sony ever get a break? We get it, we don't want to get PS3 level games on the go. All right, All right. /brainwash Well, guess what, I do.
the 'reverse screen' on psp2 is not a new feature. its exactly the same as the dual screen which nintendo has been doing for generations now, except sony thought it would be original to put the second screen on the back. so it is just a psp but with 2 screens= a sony ds. but being a fanboy, you will never accept this to be the truth, the same way sony fans can't see that the move is a total rip off of the wii mote and nuchuks. ps3 portable. ok, big deal. you can now play all the games you have been playing in the last 3 years, on the go. :l lets face it, the ps3 has been last all generation, so not many people will want to play a portable version of a console that has sucked. psp2 is for the ps3 devotee only :) the device will obviously cost way more than a ps3. fuck, its going to be so expensive, only a total twat would buy it. my guess is 400pounds. its huge! i dont think that thing will fit into your pockets! not in this era of skinny jeans lol people will have to buy a rucksack to drag that thing around with them everywhere. its like a meter long. oh yes, i remember people saying they thought the ds was brilliant until they heard it had a 5 hour battery life, and then they said it was a deal breaker... well guess what? psp2 has a 5 hour battery life. so all those people have shot themselves in the foot! dont under estimate 3d... 3d is the future, haven't you heard! all entertainment is going that way! haven't you heard! 3ds is the future of gaming. first motion gaming and then 3d, nintendo are taking us one step closer to that dream of virtual reality lol while you lot piss about on your ancient psp2's with its flat, not-3d graphics... how obsolete. how zero vision of sony. sony are laughing at you and anybody thick enough to buy a psp2.
Same thing. Yeah sure. /s Like you can squeeze a ball by using top and bottom touch at the same time. Something like that? Didn't know that the top DS screen was touch, btw. Sony stole that from Nintendo. Yeah, I can see that. Not. Whatever floats your boat. Screen: is usually related to something visual. Something what the thing on the back of the NGP sure NOT is. If anything it is a mirrored track pad.
You do realize that this following list is all things that they adding to gameplay, right: Gyroscope Augmented reality built in pedometer (could work wonders in pokemon) street pass Spot pass so Why are we acting like 3D is the only thing they added?
Ah, OK, so this then counts only for the DS; where this is a feature, but otherwise it doesn't count. Gyroscope, check (six axis in NGP - and before any body cries "copied" - is in all phones now since a while) Augmented reality (which includes all the other points you made implemented through SW; not a feature), check (front face and back face camera, and BTW, was available for the old PSP). GPS? Check, but not a feature anybody want's (Golf demo allows you to use it to look around on the court) 3G? Check, but not a feature anybody want's (why would anybody like to play online on the bus, the cafe, park) "Squeeze-Touch", check Two screen, no 3D, no So, I don't know. Why do PSP features not count, but every little DS feature is sold as the best since sliced bread. DS is nice; 3D could be working. But it is just another re-hash for the 21st built on last gen tech, as usual.
i never said it doesn't count. my argument is that they are evenly matched feature wise
You're right they aren't.
This is what I was saying. I mean, I have a laptop built for gaming, so if I wanted to carry around Console games, I can, and I already do, so what is the point of the NGP? What is so Next Gen about giving us current Gen games on the go? That name is so obnoxious. Sure 3DS has ports too, but only a few, and two of the ports are REMAKES with NEW STUFF, as opposed to straight port of something played this Gen. Last Gen I never got to play MGS Snake Eater, but I already played MGS4 this Gen. So its a smarter move. OOT released in 1998 There are plenty of Nintendo fans who have never played it, that I talk to every day onliine that's a 13 year gap! And aside form that, the 3DS also has new entries into established games, and new IPs coming, Rodea the Sky Soldier being one of them. As for as strategy goes, 3DS seems to have it right. I bet a lot of those features of the NGP get over looked or tacked on by ports. If developers have to work hard like a PS3 game for a portable, they may opt out for the 3DS. Faster, easier, less time, which means potentially more profit. Think about it! Other wise go ahead and prove me right by sticking your fingers in your ear and hitting disagree with no reply behind it.
"Is Sony's PSP Successor Worth Waiting For?" Servey says....nope "3DS is getting all boring games.. whereas PSP 2 is getting games like Killzone, Uncharted, Call of Duty, Resistance & lots lots more. 3DS is no match for the PSP 2." lol right did u happen to look at that sad list of lame sequels there? everyone in the world is going to have a 3ds, and as the for ugly ngp not so much.
Ahh I thought ugly trolls were just limited to ps3 and xbox fans. Looks like the nintendo fanboys are just as bad :-(
