GameBoy Advance vs PSP? Would GB still win?

Forums - Sales Discussion - GameBoy Advance vs PSP? Would GB still win?

Now the DS and PSP launched in 2004, I think Nintendo lauched the DS to compete with the PSP and give them an edge. But I was wondering, if Nintendo had stuck with the GameBoy advance or had Sony got the PSP to go head to head with the GBA would Nintendo still had won or would the PSP been able to overtake it on a month by month basis? The DS has a gimmick to aid it,but the GBA did not, No dualscreen or anything.

 My basic question is would the GBA have done as well against the PSP as the DS is?



Predicting the Future - 360 Will get to 11 Million in the USA this year!!

Predicting the Future - Wii will NOT win this gen in America!!


Prediciting the Future - The PS3 will pass the Wii by 2009!!

I don't think it would be doing as well as the DS is but I don't think it would be losing, I think the sales would be about the same for both (from the PSP launch) cause think of how cheap the GBA is.



 

  

 

Sure. Most of DS supersellers could be done for GBA. Success of DS is based not on the dual screen but on all these quasi-games (nintendogz, brain trainer etc.) and simply stuff like mario-something.

Edit: I've just checked the hall of fame of DS and I think all supersellers could be done for GBA...

You mean Nintendogs, Brain Training, Mario 64 DS, New Super Mario Bros., Metroid Prime Hunters, Resident Evil, and coming games like FF12, FFCC, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass?

 No. You can´t make 3D games on GBA and there is no touchscreen too. Why can´t we stay logical in this discussions?

Edit: I forgot to answer the topic question. Yes, Nintendo would´ve won. Look at the US were the GBA and the PSP still sell at the same level and look how good the GBA was selling in Japan before the NDS came out. In fact, it would´ve sold as good as the PSP in Japan and better than the PSP in the US (don´t forget that the GBA support was slowing down because of the DS - it would´ve sold better if there was no DS of course...)



FFCC ?

That´s Final Fantasy: Crystal chronicles - the Crystal Bearers.



I thought you meant Final Fantasy - Crisis Core... Don't be so harsh I meant Supersellers - Resident Evil, Metroid are out of this list... only +1.0 mln.

Edit: RE < 100k, Metroid < 200k

Yes, all games would be a bit poorer but it means nothing for Nintendo fans.

Well in Japan but worldwide?

But Crisis Core seems to be a nice game... and if Europe gets a price drop too I´ll buy a PSP with the game

 

BTW: All million sellers on DS are 3D or they use touchscreen I think.

Why do hate Nintendo so much?

Did Sony build you?



 

  

 

@ Alacrist

Hate? I just try to point that games on DS base on an idea not on a graphics. I thought you are going to agree... Nintendogz with 3D or without 3D still looks poor. Thats all. Many kids and girls like the idea though.
