Is the NGP ready to go against the 3DS?
Lol at the author: http://www.periodistadigita...
"NGP seems doomed from the start. The 3DS has already established itself with a release date, price, and launch titles."...?????? NGP is not doomed. Also launch titles for 3DS are not exactly great. Lets wait for price info before writing the NGP off
By the time we figure out the price of the NGP the 3DS will probably have sold over a million copies. I'll stay tuned though.
Here's another completely unrelated statistic: by the time the PS3 launched the 360 had sold 6 mil units. What's your point?? Just because the 3DS's sold 1 mil already (hypothetically speaking) means absolutely nothing to the people waiting for NGP to launch.
Can we get off the sales thing? If the NGP sells 70 million in its life span to the 140 million 3DS... I don't care. Sony will have another revenue stream and it is business as usual. As a gamer I want both. NGP is my pick if I have to choose but... I don't. I like Nintendo games and like Sony games and tech. This is a win for gamers. Shooters on the go and RTS on the go. Hopefully there is resurgence with SRPGS aswell using touch only. Both are great devices with great games lined up. The control scheme is there now people. We have what we want. L2 and R2 and always be simulated in some way on this device so any game made from the last 3 generations is playable on this device. I hope people understand that we could get a lot of ports but really good and accurate ports to say the least.
Price, piracy, and games are the only thing that can ruin it. It looks like they have games covered, and hopefully they've learned from the PSP, and now the PS3 fiasco, and piracy won't be a problem either. So that just leaves Price.
"By the time we figure out the price of the NGP the 3DS will probably have sold over a million copies" So what? Ps3 is teh d00med, too, then, right? /s
This article is crap.
if you say so urahara! totally agree!
It's also the Featured Blog over at 1Up Thank you very mch
The article is actually pretty damn intuitive on alot of things. I dont want to see worse ps3 ports of games, that isnt exciting. New original games are
I guess the 3ds is worse off then huh? With all its ports
I agree with the, needs a new IP part.
of course they will provide a new IP, with all those innovative ways to give input, sony just wanted to show tech demos, wait till E3.
he really thinks the psp2 is gonna be called NGP? is he retarded? i bet this is the dad of that autistic kid. LOL i kid.
no, but I do think the PSP2 has some catching up to do if it wants to win this race.
NGP is code name, it's not the final name for the device just like natal and kinect and wii and Revolution
My first reaction was to stop reading after the first few sentences. Am I seriously going to read an opinion piece by someone who doesn't understand that NGP is not the final name? I should have stuck with my initial reaction and not read it.
Thanks for reading. I appreciate it
ether this guy is really biased or is making predictions without much logic. Doomed from the start? Give me a break! I'd agree if the starting price point is 600 bucks, but if its anywhere near 299.99, then i promise you Sony will do great. idk if Sony can ever catch Nintendo's dominance of the hand held market, but i think that's their long term goal.
that's the thing. We don't even know the price of this codename and the 3DS will be available in less than 2 months.
im not making the same mistake i made with the PSP in rushing out to buy one on launch, thats for sure. ill be waiting for a few months to see if its just going to end up another expensive fancy paperweight or actually be good before i drop the $400+ it will no doubt be (im talking Australian dollars). same with the 3DS. i play my DS far more than my PSP, but even it doesnt get played too often, so im not really in the need for a new handheld in a hurry.
The NGP has just one problem. It begins with P and ends with okemon, lol. The PSP needs to find its pokemon. There is CoD, but I can't see the CoD crowd pulling out a handheld gaming system in public....may as well wear a t-shirt that says "PLEASE don't date me!"
well in japan the psp's "pokemon" would be considered monster hunter. over in the us idk. as for your quote about a hand held call of duty all i see there is profit profit profit. just think about the millions of mw2 and bo players on their ps3's now able to have a similar console experience(hopefully it wont be plagued with all of the console glitches) with them on the go AND with 3g connectivity be able to play online practically ANYWHERE? it would be a beast for sony and activision
Sony will definitely gain market share from Nintendo this coming handheld gen. COD will be to the NGP as GTA was to the PS2. I expect monster sales for the NGP
