Sorry, but this is not the DS vs. PSP again. Far from it

#1PhaseBlackPosted 6/30/2011 6:02:36 AM
Both the 3DS and PSVita can be purchased at the same price. Last time there was a significant price difference.

Sony has also rectified the biggest issue with the PSP, and that was only having one analog stick. Dual analog sticks is a huge lure to both gamers and developers, and it'll definitely help it be more successful than the PSP was

The thing that people are underestimating the most by far is that PSVita will have online capabilities on par with modern consoles. The 3DS is still far behind the current standards of when it comes to having online on a gaming device. And Sony is going the extra mile with online adding cross platform play with PS3 and PSVita

Do I think the PSVita will outsell the 3DS? Not really, and it's because Nintendo has had a head start on sales and they can possibly hit price drops faster because it's been out longer (same thing happened with PS3 vs. 360). But you can bet that the gap between 3DS and PSVita will be much, much closer than the gap between DS and PSP

Except the 3ds is capable of graphics that dont look lile crap anymore, just look at the e3 2011 trailer of resident evil revelations. And the 3d adds to that.
The psp's biggest advantage is gone as well, it will come down to games, and so far they both seem to be doing good in that department.

One day, Nintendo decided to put Mario into the world of Metroid. Alas, he was no match for the mighty Geemer.

I'm pretty sure PSV can make much better looking games then the 3DS.

At best,its ps2-gc. I didnt say it wasnt more powerful, it is, but the gap isnt huge.

You're out of your mind if you think the difference between Vita and 3DS is the same as the difference between PS2 and GCN.

Vita is so much more powerful than 3DS that it is able to run engines 3DS isn't. GCN wasn't able to run any game PS2 couldn't.

And besides, if you think this:

the psp was outselling the ds when it was more expensive. So its not like now that they are the same price things will change significantly.

A gamer should want as many games as possible, from as many different genres as possible,on as many different systems as possible,for as many people as possible

RE 3D has sucky graphics, there's no way 3DS can compete with PSV on that end. I think the sale figures this time will be quite different, but I don't know if PSV will "win"

Still the pretty Vita is amazing, I'm sure a lot of people think this way too. Really looking forward to Christmas, just hope it comes in white too though :/ Me no want black T.T

Yeah the psp was out selling the ds after a while
You gota think when someone buys a DS they just dont throw it away and buy a new one they keep it
The total number of DS's out there is much larger then the amount of PSP's out there just because it won a couple weeks doesnt mean anything

The thing is, none of this matters in the slightest compared to momentum. Look at how the console war has gone so far:

2600 era - Atari is dominant.

NES / SNES eras - Atari doesn't lock its console, shovelware floods the market, nearly killing it. Atari becomes a non-factor. Nintendo becomes dominant through excellent marketing.

PS1 / PS2 eras - Nintendo decides to stick with cartridges, drastically increasing production costs, all third parties jump ship. Sony becomes dominant through excellent marketing.

Wii era - Sony launches their system at $600 due to a super expensive blu-ray drive that no one cares about, sales are abysmal. Nintendo becomes dominant through excellent marketing.


What makes the dominance change? One thing and one thing only - a catastrophic error by the company in the lead plus brilliant marketing from the underdog. Unless Nintendo does something immensely stupid, Sony has no chance to beat them in handhelds, ever.

Will they do something stupid? Probably. But it doesn't look like it's this gen, so Sony has to bide its time for a little longer.

To be honest, those Uncharted screenshots are full of blocky geometry and make the difference seem like it's actually pretty small. When you add in that RE is 3D and Uncharted is not, there really isn't much difference.

I agree,

PS VITA is on a different league right now, cheaper but with higher specs and better games. compared to psp and ds, despite psp's advantage in higher specs and superior games the ds was still $100 cheaper.

now you get both price but sony is still deliving high quality + superior games with the same price.

PS Vita will win this handheld generation
