Patcher: Sony should copy 3DS

Sony has dropped the ball when it comes to portable entertainment and should copy the 3DS for the PSP2, insists industry analyst Michael Pachter.

Wedbush Morgan's resident motormouth told IndustryGamer, "I'm completely baffled by Sony's PSP strategy. They owned the portable entertainment market with the Walkman, and sat back and watched as Nintendo dominated games and Apple dominated music.

"They never quite got it right with an MP3 player, and their initial effort in games was a bit too pricey and sophisticated for the majority of the portable gaming market - kids under 13. They have a new ad campaign with a kid as spokesperson, so I suppose we should wait and see if it works.

"I continue to think pricing is an issue," he continued, "but if the 3DS comes out at $249, the $169 PSP might seem like a bargain. If Sony were really smart, they'd emulate the 3DS and put a 3D screen on the PSP2."

Sony remains tight-lipped regarding its next handheld but a Mortal Kombat developer who has apparently slapped eyes on the PSP's successor last week dubbed it a "pretty powerful machine".

 

Sony said 3D is imprecise within handhelds so I wonder why would they do i for PSP2 in this case.

Just give them some time. It took years for Sony to copy the Wii.



This is what I've been saying!!!

Just slap dual analogs on it.

This guy really thinks copying will allow one company to compete and win?

Good thing no one actually listens to his advice, or we would have so many companies going right out of business and no one innovating at all.

Do most people see sony as less innovative than Nintendo in terms of gaming??

I for a fact do, it seems like sony doesnt have the conviction to expand new ideas...IMO

Sony also bad-mouthed motion controls in 2006.

Copying a competitor is an often used business strategy, usually successful too.

i think the biggest thing sony can do right now is make a good handheld system for as cheap as possible.  if they can make the psp2 for $200 that would be huge.  the ps3 and the psp were both very expensive when they came out, and i think thats why they were so slow to get buyers.
