What's the real appeal?

#1AP3BrainPosted 6/16/2010 12:59:34 AM
I am not a troll or anything but isn't the only appeal for 3ds visual? The visual aspect of the 3d images doesn't help gameplay no matter what that guy says about "navigation".

It does not have a second analog stick so it is on par with PSP on controls.

It is basically just another upgraded ds but with a better engine is it not? Speaking of the engine, they were not very clear on its capabilities.... "almost as powerful as a 360"? No... I am pretty sure it is going to at most be at par with PSP graphics.

I just don't find it very impressive and I am wondering what everybody else finds impressive about it I guess.

Actually current images already look better then the PSP and those are launch titles.

I think they're blowing smoke about it matching PS3 and 360, but I can say with some confidence that it's going to be the 3rd best gaming system (graphically speaking)

The list of launch titles should be all the incentive you need. A long list of potential awesomeness utilizing new technology sounds fine to me.

3D is a plus but also the appeal is coming from a very promising selection of games from big franchises, graphics-up, advanced layout and systems, and the motion-uses also. It could create some interesting things and some of the titles already coming out look fantastic. Plus 3D picture taking is nice.

Hm...

Ocarina of Time Remake,
Port of Street Fighter 4,
Port of MGS3,
New Animal Crossing,
New Pilot Wings,
Star Fox 64 remake,
New Resident Evil,
New Layton,
New DoA and possibly a new Ninja Gaiden,
New Kingdom Hearts (Or is it a remake? I have no idea.),
and a new Paper Mario.

Yeah, it's just the graphics that people are hyped over...

Oh, and there's at least one game shown, a launch title/early demo, that looks better than current PSP games, so you're wrong on that, too. And, of course, you don't need a second analogue stick for camera control and aiming when you have a big ass touch screen right there, which is much more precise.

All of those could have easily been on the DS and people would think of them the same. Personally I am not so hot about ports and remakes but I guess other people are.

Except, no. Actually look up the games before making statements like that.

Not possible on DS.

The thing is, stuff like "Port of MGS3" is a graphically UPGRADED port, not downgraded like you'd expect.
