My 3D is never off, and when I turn it off, the experience is shittier, I'm pretty sure I'm not along on that one :P.
Sony is a jack of all trades where they just kinda try to counter with their own versions of things that nobody uses in the end. The problem is that they are usually add-ons and not included, most PS3 users will never have a PSEye, a PS Move, and any of the other shit that comes later because it was not included in the initial package(I do have the Bluetooth headset and the little keyboard thing though lol). The honest truth is I haven't seen Sony being in anyway innovative since the PSX days. Not to mention the Wii shovelware was 3rd party taking the wrong bet and look how many studios went under since the start of the 7th gen? All we get now are mostly numbers games AKA sequels out the ass, the current video game industry is getting jacked up and it will fail if we just keep going the "more power is better!" route. My opinion is that it doesn't look good TBH, I'm most likely going to move slowly towards Indie and Handheld more as the supposed AAA titles are mostly not very interesting to me outside of the very few these days.
No verdict on Wii U yet, I just know the controller works well, but I Have no idea how it will perform after looking at the 3DS coming back from the dead. I just know cutting edge graphics is not even 50% of the equation or we'll all be fucked as gamers in the future.
you keep trying put your opinion as fact. i have thought of it. Graphical progression comes with hardware progression, which gives you more variety to play, which means it cant be bland as you are experiencing something new, you are putting way too much into the controller which again doestn even work properly. I dont WANT it to change because usually the change (as we have seen with Wiimote) is NOT for hte better, if you think it is, good for you. Alot of people dont.
My 3d is always off cause it kills battery life, i only use it on the road, and if im on the road there is no way i can keep it still to have the effect be good anyway, so its better if its just off.
Thats it though, it SHOULD be an addon. I love that, if you want to use it, its there if you dont, dont . Its not trying to force anything on you like Ninty did with Wii and at the very least there addon works better than the comp(Kinect notwithstanding) and at least they support their addons, alot more than i can say that Ninty did for Motion+ and that sold way more. SO what was Ninty's excuse. It is completly irrelevant how much people use what cause as we seen with this gen that doesnt always equal support. Which is the most important thing right? Dont care about "innovation" or who did it first. I only care about who does it better and if it works. 3rd party shovelware is companies taking advantage of people who like things like WiiFIt, thats all that was and the MADE money on it, especially the no name guys. IT was that cheap to make. They didnt bet on the wrong horse, they made games they knew woulld SELL on Wii.
THe 3ds was never dead, we just had to high expectations and it seems some still do. We thought the 3d was going to sell it, it didnt, we gotta to deal with that. Same with WII U the controller ISNT sellign the system, thats just the way it is. I know some wish it wasnt so.
