SCEI head Kaz Hirai has told PC World in Tokyo that Sony did think of adding 3D for PSP2, but it chose to “forgo it “for the time being”.
That was a good choice, keep all the shit out of it.
that'll enable 3D, just like the PS3. *Music plays: Thun thun thun...
But the screen isn't capable of running two images, in the PS3 situation everyone's PS3 can now do 3D, but if you don't have a 3DTV it's not going to work for you. Sony said that they want to focus on a home theatre 3D experience for the time being. I mean if it hasn't even kicked off in that then how will it take off on a portable platform?
yea, they can't just "enable" it, but i think it's a possibility that before it releases, they could add a 3d screen on it, maybe just to keep it a surprise, but they better announce that quick if they are, before the 3ds comes out
On this site the only time when 3d isn't crap is when it's on the Ps3. Although imo 3d is a gimmick anyway, i'm glad they're not wasting resource's on it.
I'll sacrifice 3D for a super clear OLED anyday.
I'd rather have twice longer batter life than mario in 3d for 2 hours
To be fair you have to remember it's very different tech, Nintendo couldn't afford to enable 3D if they went Sony's design root. Here is why, 1) The screen on the 3DS is 3.5" why the screen on the NGP is 5", as that makes it more then twice as big. Don't disagree with this unless you know how screen sizes work. Enabling 3D without classes on a 5" screen would be much more expensive then on a 3.5" screen. 2) The 3D display on the 3DS is not a touch screen, Sony's 5" display is, there still using the old DS screens with a higher res as the touch panel. Making a 5" 3D, touch panel screen is to expensive for either company to handle if they expect the consumer to be able to afford it. 3) Resolution, Sony has decided to go with graphical power over witty innovation. The did the same with the PS3 and the same with the PSP over the DS. If they wanted there display to be able to render 3D the same way the 3DS does they would have to cut there resolution in half, making games look much less attractive. 4) The NGP will already cost vastly more to produce then the 3DS, Sony has a habit of selling there consoles at a loss for the first year or two. It's great for the consumer and much better value then the 3DS which will of course be selling at a profit as Nintendo couldn't afford it not too.
It is not 3d capable like the 3ds, but I bet you all it'll be compatible with Sony's 3d glasses. Question is - who really wants that..
Good. No 3D. I dont want to have a headache when I play on the NGP.
There's a switch to turn 3D off what a faulty reasoning you have....
you are right, you know when i play 3D game. i just do that for one hour because i got headache
Are you that stupid whats the point of 3ds without the 3d ? Without the 3d its just.... a DS Personally I think the DS was fine as it was. Till this day it had great games and sold very well. I think the 3DS is just a gimmick, but it will probably sell well.
I am trying to wrap my head around that one too, hamburger123. Nintendo is telling people to turn of 3D to extend battery life. People here are saying turn it off to avoid headaches. Why not just buy a 3DS - 3 = DS for $250 or whatever? Because that is a horrible idea is why. If you aren't paying for the 3D, why even get the thing?
I have bad eyes and I don't want to have to force focus them just to get full 3D effect that's better left to a big screen like the movies were it wouldn't bother as much. I like the NGP just the way it is.
it should have been "That was a good choice, keep it AFFORDABLE"
Glad they left out the stare at the screen at an angle eye straining 3D.Prefer the glasses anyway.
I didn't disagree but I do wonder have you tried any glasses-free 3D gadgets yet? Like at CES or something?
At this years CES a lot of the attendees had a negative reaction to the glasses-less 3D TV's that were on display. If it isn't even ready on large screen TV's how is it going to work on smaller screens?
lol at the fanboys. Most of the people who tried out 3DS claimed the 3D worked well and was pleasant. I got invited to Nintendo's 3DS trials in London next week so I'll be making my decision there.
The PS3 doesn't have a screen, you still need a 3D television to play in 3D. No one knows if the NGP's screen is capable of this.
I thought it was pretty simple? No 3D (ATM) since they want to distance themselves from the 3DS. Second reason = that'll add to the final price for the customer. I don't think a lot of us would want that.. That'd definitely make the NGP price overboard. More than what we are speculating now for price. Perhaps in NGP ver. 2 or ver. 3. and when these interesting techs for a handheld are considerably cheaper.
thank kratos for this... 3d is stupid gimmick.
It could be the gimmick that sells. Remember the Wii? Remember the DS? Sony may have just shot themselves in the foot by choosing not to include 3D!
Something tells me that sony have a better understanding of the gaming market than you, no offense.
But do they have a better understanding than Nintendo? That's the important question. No offence.
so shut up!
lol, what an immature response by a fanboy. Are these all your accounts?
yeah,good choice for the time being since 3d uses twice the processing power,lets keep at the goodness on good lookn games
Pffft yeah right, did not stop them from doing it on PS3. More like; Nintendo thought of it first and beat us to it
Sony can leave out 3D with this model and for newer models later on when the technology can take it they'll put out 3D on a newer model that can handle it. This will get newer buyers to grab their product.
In a way, I'm glad that they didn't add 3D, as it would no doubt bring the 'copying from Nintendo' arguments again - after all they 'stole' the touchscreen idea from them! Plus, it also means that each system has unique features that separate them from each other. With the 3DS I'll get 3D on the go, and with the NGP, I'll get high quality graphics. I prefer it when consoles (handhelds or home) have different features that make it more justifiable to have all the different systems - wouldn't it be boring if they were all the same? But I'm fairly sure that Sony will add a 3D screen to the NGP at some point in the future. I've got my 3DS preorder, and I've already registered my interest for the NGP so I can preorder it as soon as I can. I'll be filing for bankruptcy next year, probably. PLEASE don't announce a new home console in 2012! lol
Nothing portable has a 3D screen right now apart from the 3DS, the reason why no other company's using it is because glasses-free 3D just doesn't work, there were a couple of potable devices shown at CES with glasses-free 3D, but even they got negative reactions. Nintendo know this, but then again they also know that the masses are uninformed brainwashed idiots and they take advantage of that. The 3DS's screen is based on Sharps early glasses-free 3D technology, which by the way hasn't progressed much since then. Anyway's I would rather have a screen with larger viewing angles.
3D for Movies HD for Games
3-D is the worst fad ever, glad it's not included. I suspect they didn't want to fail at another 3-D attempt. The fad cant die fast enough for me. Every movie has 3-D now, most are horrid and use 3-D as a crutch to support the overall lousy writing, acting, plots ect.... Much rather go back to quality movies and less "Special Effects"
I think if the NGP is succesful we will see 3D in the next iteration of NGP.
mybe psp2 slim will have 3d screen
Thank god. 3d is just a crappy gimmick.
i hate 3d in movies and games, thank goodness psp2 isnt 3d. I hate gimmicks aswell, i just wanna play the game, not use a damn touch screen as the main way to play, give me the option then cool, force me? Screw u! its one of reasons i dont have to many game son my dsi, ninja gaiden was horrible with that crap. but yeah back on track YAY for no 3d!!!!!
When they say they fore-go 3D for now , does that mean 6 months after they release it there will be a new version with 3D.
i dont know why everybody just thinks 3d for gaming is going to be somewhat enjoyable...i mean have any of you even played it yet? so till it comes out on 3ds and you have played it i think ya'll should just be quiet because gimmick or no gimmick it remains to be seen.this reminds me how everybody was bashing the wii coz of motion controls and suddenly everybody is jumping on into motion control like whores,im not saying motion controls are best for all kinds of gaming but it works and can be enjoyable period.
If 3-D on handhelds take off.. Sony's Kaz Hirai statments in 2012: "PSP2 did have 3D capability all along, and we were the first to include it in handheld systems before anybody else. 3D games were available from day 1 but we couldn't decide on price etc, etc, etc,etc."
OLED +Vivid Quality Screen +Energy Efficient +Less Eyes Straining +Lightweight +Durable +ETC
The iphone 5 is said to have a superior 3D screen, so all this talk about nintendo being the only portable with 3D is rubbish. Starting next year we will start seeing more 3D compatible devices. Does that mean sony has shut themselves on the foot for not including 3D on their new platform? No. The truth is the NGP is packed with features, features which are essential at that. This alone will I am sure keep it relevant for a long time. Both platforms will in the end have their crowds, which is a good thing for gaming.
PSP3 will have 3d. For now - let 3d first get mature.
"for now" no no no thats alright serious people dont want that ruining games thank you i like your NGP as it is already sold me on it 3d is a deal breaker just ask nintendo
The way I see it is that SONY went for a higher resolution screen rather than a lower resolution 3D screen because they will be releasing the 3D head mounted display later this year for those who wish to opt for one may do so at their choosing. Also, I hears that this year companies were starting to release T.V. displays that used passive glasses like the ones in movie theaters, if this is true you would not even need the head mounted display in order to watch 3D on your high resolution NGP screen. Trust me Sony knows what they're doing, because they said at CES that the head mounted display was for 3D gaming on the go. Does anyone else remember hearing this?
I don't know how you wouldn't get straight robbed wearing a head mounted display while you get lost in uncharted or some other game on the go. . But head mounted display sounds awesome! EDIT then again that's probably why there's no tv out
Even though im going for the PSP2 than the 3DS, i think adding OPTIONAL 3D would have been a good move. Would mean it would outsell the 3DS no problem. I Said optional, to those who think 3D is a bad idea in life.
I for one believe that 3d should be on big screens, not small portable one. Sony is doing the right thing. I bet if i ask everyobe what they would rather have, Battery life or 3d? people would choose battery. I have a 3d tv at home, I love it to death. I but i need my ngp to go that extra mile.
