The 3DS vs PSP2 (NGP) battle: Who will win the console wars ?

Forums - Sales Discussion - The 3DS vs PSP2 (NGP) battle: Who will win the console wars ?

3DS will win, because of the graphics!!

3D vision is part of the graphics, isn't it!?

I don't think any company ever really wins a console war.

The console the software over its lifetime either makes a profit or a loss, nothing more.

Also, I am surprised by the amount negativity people are expressing about the PSP2. As a successor to the 7th most popular gaming system ever made, it has taken all of its predecessor's designs and improved upon them greatly.

They added a larger high resolution OLED multi-touch screen, added a rear multi-touch pad, improved the analog stick, added a second analog stick, upgraded the Wifi to 802.11 b/g/n, added 3G, added bluetooth 2.1, added a front camera, added a rear camera, added an electronic compass, added gyroscopes, added accelerometers, significantly upgraded the graphic capabilities, upgraded the multitasking abilities, upgraded the game media from optical to flash, upgraded the OS and networking features, and are aiming to have about a 7 hour battery life.

Additionally, Sony has gone out of their way to make they system as developer friendly as possible and is even offering game development grants to underfunded studios with good ideas.

It is just disappointing to see such negative attitudes toward Sony's proactive efforts to improve their next generation handheld console.

PSP2 will tank like the PSP, and $ony will fail to learn its lesson like with the PSP.

Like Sega?

Wow, I feel bad now.


its k, its normal 2 feel bad when u type something stupid. SEGA only went wrong with the Saturn, and they corrected themselves with the Dreamcast

If SEGA wins (or finally stops screwing up Sonic and getting the sales back), I'll admit they learned something.

wins? wins what? besides, the only mediocre Sonic game was Sonic 06, and thats just cuz it was released too early

I think the market share will be like 60%-65% for 3DS and 40%-35% for PSP2, an increment of 5% percent of the market is possible for PSP.

I disagree. Sonic and the Black Knight was also rubbish.

You don't seem to have a good grasp of Sega's history. The Genesis/Mega Drive bombed in Japan. Was well managed in the US. The Sega CD and 32X both tanked globally. The Saturn was success in Japan. It actually lead the market initially and PS1 didn't surpassed for good until FFVII launched. Unforunately, they botched the Saturn completely out side of Japan. When the Dreamcast launched it was doomed. They pissed off 3rd parties and retailers in the West with the Saturns early launch. They did the same with Japanese retailers and 3rd parties by pulling the plug on the Saturn in Japan too soon. When you toss in their 2 billion dollar debt at the DC's launch, it would have taken miracle for them to stay in the hardware market.



It's like 2004 all over again...

lulz Japan barely counts. Anyway, the DC only bombed because SEGA had the integrity to keep it a console. Sony, which wasn't held down by such things as 'integrity', lauched their DVD player shortly after the DC, and that killed it.
