I love how these guys can freely express themselves about the hardware/potential without having to worry to offend anyone else that they have direct relationships with.

blumatt2868d ago

I just thought of something, does anyone know if the PSP2 will have rumble?? I haven't heard anything about that.

blumatt2868d ago

Hmm. 2 disagrees for wondering something. lol I guess I'll google it. haha I think some people on here like to just click the disagree button just for the hell of it.

belal2869d ago

hmm psp gears anyone?

Would be awesome. Would look even better than on Xbox, and that's some amazing stuff right there.

Yeah, considering that Gears consists mainly of lots of bump mapping textures to hide the very low polygon count, the NGP version should be able to look better than the 360 version graphically.

Anyway, just imagine if you can use the camera to take a picture of your enemy's face and superimpose it onto the in-game character. Then when you can kill him, you can stomp on his face. Would be funny. LOL.

Unreal Tournament NGP or something. That would be where Epic would be headed and being first with 3G and Wifi on the system will help. Whoever gets a nice base first will win on the developers side for this system.

Couldnt work on a handheld the gampelay doesnt fit it.

pain777pas2869d ago

There is gonna be some Socom like experiences with no respawn and no regen. Hardcore online will be back with the NGP. Not sure how I feel about it. Its just to make matches alot shorter online. I like when you have to master a game though som it might be fun.

thehitman2868d ago

lol at my disagrees obviously no1 here played ut before..

hoops2869d ago

If SONY can make this price competitive with the 3DS, Nintendo might just well find itself trailing Sony this time around in the hand-held market.

klado2869d ago

Gamestop listed it at 300, FAI.

More likely to be 300/400.

Remember what Uncle Ben said: "It great powers come with great games".....wait what?? That's not what he said.

Sunny_D2869d ago

PeptoBismol2869d ago

badz1492868d ago

"Praised to the roof" is more like "This device will change the way we live, it will change the whole fkng world". And I didn't see anyone say that in the article.
