Setting the Record Straight: Why the 3DS Is Still A Viable Competitor to the NGP

Game Podunk Blogger, Setaimx writes, "Nintendo proved that interesting concepts win out over superior graphics, and yet Sony seems intent on staying the course with it's superior graphics and multi-use functions, although this time, they're borrowing from Nintendo's playbook and implementing touch control. At this point, it might sound like I'm against the PSP, but let me assure you that I most certainly am not. I own a PSP and love it for what it does, but I'm not blind to it's shortcomings.

I disagree with the phone statment. NGP does not need to have a phone to be a success. Sure having the capability wouldnt hurt but dont need it. The iphone is a phone first gaming second. We see it that way because of the name and how its advertised. The NGP is gaming first so for them to advertise it like a phone would hurt it IMO. What NGP is doing, the gaming community has been wanting with the PSPgo. Sony and Nintendo are going in two different directions. Both will have their fans and both will survive. However, you should never count out the competition.

If the Wii can give the PS3 trouble (Both sales and exclusives wise), then the 3DS can give the NGP trouble. Simple as that.

You don't have to pick one or the other though, I will be buying and enjoying both. What's the point of limiting yourself to one console, unless you can't afford it?
