IGN - With powerful processors, high quality cameras, and precision motion sensors, Sony's next handheld could redefine AR gaming. Here's how.
And yet they rate the augmented reality games coming with the release of NGP below all others? I guess doing it right isn't good enough?
I think it's because there haven't been many games announced for NGP yet
lets infuse some comedy http://img.photobucket.com/...
Best use for it would be an augmented reality Yu-gi-oh game. Like in the Anime, where the monsters come out of the cards. And you could battle online with other players.
All we really know are the first party games. And at least Sony is releasing full Fledged augmented reality games and not just mini games. The ar games for 3DS last all of Five minutes before you put them down.
so all that hype for the 3ds AR mostly because they had a poor launch line up and now they wan to come over to the NGP...figures
Augmented reality never looks real....looks like cgi on real things....its just dumb.....i can never stand those movies like that either (alvin and the chipmonks, yogi bear, the smurf) it looks so fake its unbearable to watch.....not to mention the horrid acting
It has to look less realistic than real life .. if it didn't then it would be real. That's the whole point on these types of tech, realistic not real.
"The 3DS is known to struggle under the weight of incoming video, glasses-free 3D, and graphics rendering, the NGP was able to maintain a consistent framerate no matter how rapid you change perspective or how many objects entered your view. " I did not know that the 3DS had so many problems with AR tech. Anyways the AR tech in the NGP looks really good but i wonder as IGN said how many devs are going to use it. @Blackburn10 Yeah it looks like they spent their sweet time in designing it. The hand-held is extremely powerful and stuffed with a lot of neat features. People assume that its going to be a lot more expensive than the 3DS because of the tech but i believe that it will be just a little bit more expensive. Everyone knows that Nintendo is making a huge profit off each 3DS sold so i cant see why sony cant make a small profit off each NGP and sell it for 299 euros.
It really sounds like a solid system. I can't wait to see it in action in my own two hands
why would you the media hyped it up so much that it was crazy . lack of games at 3ds launch caused them to turn to ar
Can't wait I bought a PSP on release and it still runs great now 6 years later. The NGP is gonna be a beast!!!! Too bad its probably gonna be really expensive in the UK/Aus/NZ. :(
The porn industry will make a killing with this! As for us gamers, I would love to see a a modnation or micro machines where it turns any room you look into through AR into a track. I say micro machines since the tracks in the game were designed to look like day to day places i.e. living room, classroom, kitchen etc. This would take it to the next level.
I look forward to seeing what Sony do with the NGP. But its sucess will all be on what type of games they decide to bring out for it as well as price. The 3DS sales were only just what Nintendo expected with only Street Fighter and pilot wings as there main games. But if you look back at when the PSP and DS were released the psp sales were highter it was when Nintendo released the DS Lite the DS took off as it has games like Super mario bros mario kart Metroid ect. Sony has not quite got the names for the PSP yet and I hope they dont just port games like Uncharted or Kill zone across to the NGP as I think this would hurt sales of they game as most users will pick it up for the PS3. They need to treat the NGP with new IP's and a few PS1-PS2 remakes like Nintendo are doing with Zelda and StarFox 64. I think in the long run the 3DS will still come out on top but I can see the NGP selling more than the PSP has in its life time.
I think the ngp will sell 80 mil to the 3ds, 125 mil. but you are right even launching in the same month, the psp outsold the ds for a long time. But the difference is the 3ds has a year start
