    Sounds promising if true, that could go either way as we have seen with the PSP and lol the PSP2 predictions! [​IMG]

    The graphics will probably look similar, because of the lower resolution. I'll end up getting a 3DS and a PSP2.

    Nothing says it'll be as powerful as a PS3.

    You can render the same graphical quality as a PS3 with 1/4th of the power if you're rendering it at half the resolution.

    Meh, IMHO it will be DOA.
    I mean, there probably won't even be BC unless you buy all your games again.

    I was merely taking EA's exact wording in my title as that's how they stated it and that is very true what you have stated. It's more likely the way powerul in visual terms matching PS3's graphics output on a lower resolution/tiny screen.

    I feel the interpretation of "as powerful as the PS3" to mean capabilities, and not actual raw numbers, much like how the 3DS can be seen as having close to the power of the Wii.

    If they really make the same mistake like with the PSP (too powerful for it's time, the price was way too big with a device that powerful), they must have the dumbest staff ever.

    the 3DS is already at the $300 mark so they can work from there

    The only problem that PSP had was that no game was really worth buying.

    (sigh) No it's not. The 3DS pricing point is the same as the Wii's at release, which was $250.

    Most likely won't be getting a PSP2. Can't think of a single game series that I'd be looking forward to on it.

    I don't think a price was ever actually announced, was there? The only thing that was said was that it would be 'similar to' that of the Wii.

    At the time of release, yes. After that, lots of games appeared.
    Which is obviously the problem now too, isn't it? Look at Ninty.
    They promised us OoT again, and in 3D on their new console.

    there are a few good games but the problem is that they are usually just portable versions of the home console versions and just aren't as fun, while the DS was underpowered it did have some pretty awsome games. To be honest I only bought a PSP off my friend for portable PSX games (FFVII FTW [​IMG]) and emulation (Earthbound FTW [​IMG])

    So they've made the same mistake they made with the PSP then.
