Techtroid takes a look at how times have changed. The 3DS and Vita face the toughest competition in the handheld market since it took off.
Yeah, I mean there was a period of about 5 years where no new handhelds were released and they choose to both release their new handhelds in the same year. That was smart.
3DS and Vita, A Tough Time Ahead yea, for my wallet.
As long as I get a vita I don't care what anyone says. I know for me its the perfect handheld system with proper controls, and it already has a great lineup of games I want to play now.
The problem with the 3ds is that they're no games worth owning...yet. Tales of the abyss i have for ps2. Metal Gear Solid 3d whats the point when the collection will release soon. MML3 cancelled. The rest are remakes of older games. Mario an co can't do it all. Vita i hope avoid this problem.
1 more: Pokemon. They make a Pokemon 3DS that looks anything like the Pokemon 3DS Pokedex, both the system and game will sell like hotcakes.
theres about 10 new games to every 1 port........
double post sorry stupid phone.
i see an easy time for 3ds since 3d is already taking off and with the price drop...vita has nothing unique going for it so its in trouble after fanboys buy it the first two years
Oh noes the Vita is tah doomed cause of 3DS price drop. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMEE EEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDDD I honestly believe that the situation is getting a bit out of hand when we talk about the 3DSs price drop. First the news was Nintendo is screwed because they dropped the price early. Then it changes to Sony is doomed because the Vita costs more than the 3DS. Journalists love to take advantage of fanboys stupidity. Anyways what people have to accept is that Nintendo made some mistakes and corrected them. Now while the 3DS will probably outsell the Vita this does not mean that the Vita will be a failure. On the contrary i believe the vita will be a bigger sucess than the PSP.
From the article: "To put things into perspective though, this is not the usual: “The 3DS and Vita are doomed” talk which seems to be popping up all over the web. There is no doubt in my mind that both will sell well throughout their lives and both have boundless potential."
Bored of these articles now.
Don't click the link and read it then...?
3ds £115 just needs some titles which no doubt will come and it has to be good times ahead at that price, imagine if the price even dropped below the magic £100 lets say £99 around xmas time.
The PSV success will depend on what Sony's strategy will be. The 3DS is selling above its predecessor during the same time period and the holiday is just ahead of us. So we'll see how successful they will be. I mean I ain't saying that the smartphones will not eat some of the market but to totally kill of the dedicated handheld gaming device is highly unlikely.
disagree sony fanboys, every movie being release has a 3d version, 3ds give you movie clips, short 3d films aND 3D PHOTOS WITH NO GLASSES...ONCE NINTENDO FINALLY ADVERTIZE THE 3DS RIGHT...IM BEING HONEST AS A LONG TIME GAMER YOU CAN START CRYING FOR VITA AFTER THE FIRST TWO YEARS
Where were you when Nintendo advertised their handheld? In the cave? underwater? in space? or in another dimension?
Sigh... another gaming handheld vs smartphone article. I really tired of this.
