Will the PSP's successor steal the 3DS's thunder?

Sony seems to be in a tough position in the handheld market

What can the next PSP possibly have that'll be truly innovative? People already trash Sony enough for copying ideas. Any announcement of a 3D PSP is going to be spoiled because Nintendo did it first. Double so if they try and give the PSP2 a touch screen.

So what does Sony have? Go for a super handheld that does HD? Well then the setup for 3DS and PSP2 is the same as it was for DS and PSP, and we all know that didn't go as well as Sony had hoped.

Funny. I was looking for the PS3 E3 footage and I found this:

Who doesn't remember Japan's Great Giant Crab invasion of 620AD?

Doubt it. Many said the same thing about the PSP when that was released and Nintendo has over 50% of the handheld market despite being a stronger system.

That is because price is a huge factor the PSP cost a lot more then DS basically since both launched.

Most people are not willing to throw down 2 times the price just for better graphics.

PSP did cater to adult gaming tastes more though and if you don't believe that you have yet to really look at both libraries of games carefully.

PSPs have been cheaper than DSes here. They might be today considering DSi XL's are 170 here. Not quite sure though.
