    EA: 3DS is 'Magical'
    Will sell like Hotcakes
    [​IMG]

    EA’s chief operating officer John Schappert has lavished praise of Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS.

    "The 3DS is just incredibly cool. The 3DS is magical. You put that in your hand, you look down, and all of a sudden it’s in 3D without glasses. That’s an amazing experience. I’m a huge fan," he told IndustryGamers.

    "I think that device is going to sell like hot cakes. I think it’s going to do incredibly well, and in typical Nintendo fashion they have re-energized the industry, yet again. I give them nothing but credit and we are excited to be supporting that platform with Madden, FIFA, and The Sims that we announced."

    In contrast, Schappert said that Sony’s PSP business “has been challenged” for a while now. "I hope they’re able to breathe new life into [the PSP] because it’s been a very nice platform to date, but it has been soft of late… I’d like to see Sony do well… It feels like yesterday when the PSP was on allocation because of Monster Hunter, wasn’t it? So, you know, give them credit. The boys are smart... they’ll do ok."[/p]

    I am inclined to agree with EA here, the 3DS really is starting to look magical; the console itself, the 3D, the games line-up, 3D movies etc. Everything is just overwhelming, I expect this to completely outrank the PSP as soon as it is released and I will make sure to definitely pick one of these consoles up in the near future, even if it mean I have to 'buy' my games.

    If Sony don't do something new for the PSP soon, they are going to get left behind and completely forgotten about.

    Yea the 3DS is quite cool. I hope the console itself won't be more than what we think it'll be. The games that are lined up for the console looks good too.

    Edit: LoL Sony's last resort "3PSPD" haha

    Well this was expected. Surprising that it's coming from EA though. This is getting me even more pumped for the 3DS.

    sony will probably wait for the 3DS's success then attempt to make a portable 3D PS3 only to sell it for a crazy price thus making the 3DS sell even more

    Nintendo have a knack of bringing gaming to non-gamers that's why nintendo have always done well.
    non-gamers will buy the 3DS for the 3D movies and photography and since they have the device they might as well buy a game or two.

    So, at this point, the only way Sony could beat Ninty's 3DS is either:

    A) A free embarrassing-but-still-awesome imshortandrad video with every purchase,

    or

    B) Smell-o-vision.

    I'm crossing my fingers, but I'll never tell which one I'm crossing for. [​IMG]

    I bet Sony's crapping their pants. With hardware superior to theirs, I bet the PSP doesn't stand the slightest of a chance now
