    As expected, Sony's boss Kaz Hirai is nowhere near impressed with Nintendo's new handheld, the 3DS. It's too high maintenance for him, he says.

    Talking with FT, Hirai expressed his opinion that bringing that particular technology to a handheld is ill-suited.Not to mention, there are a whole array of issues pertaining to the development of 3D handheld displays itself.

    Sounds like he's just hating on it, though. What do you think? Does he have a point regarding those little humps along the 3D handheld development?

    Did Sony develop any software for the 3DS?
    No? Then they need to shut their mouths.

    The 3d effect is just the draw, kind of like R.O.B. for the NES. Behind the gimmick you've got a powerful system with lots of new technology available, with a promising selection of launch titles.

    PSPGo = fail, it appears that Sony can neither do it first nor right.

    Precisely. There's still some great specs which are ready to be toiled with. [​IMG]

    Let's put this in Google translate:

    "We want to wait and see how Nintendo innovates first so that we can do the exact same thing, but not nearly as well executed."

    "We've looked at the current technology, and our conclusion was that we must make excuses in order to not look stupid."

    As you can see, he makes a good point"

    And you aren't allowed to tilt it. So you can't use the tilt sensor.

    Duh, everyone knows that he's just being biased. And people won't just buy the 3DS for the 3D effect, the shitloads of AWESOME games for the 3DS already warrants a buy from most people, so STFU Sony, you're just jealous that your E3 was nothing compared to Nintendo's. Miyamoto is unimpressed with your penis-like Wiimote rippoff.

    It's funny how Sony bashes all the competition and when it turns out to be amazingly popular and profitable, they rip it off, then pretend it's better than the competition. Just you wait, if 3DS becomes amazingly popular (which there's no reason it shouldn't), they'll just steal the tech for themselves and market it as "better".

    I love the PS1 and PS2, but seriously, i give absolutely no praise to Sony the company. They're serious jackasses, the holy grail of facepalms. And if it makes me a fanboy to hate on a hypocritical, hating, devious company, then that's a title i'll proudly wear.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Maddox has an opinion on this too. I have to say, a company that destroys one of their vendors (Lik-Sang!) for giving them more business when they are already reporting losses, has totally got their heads up their ass and infatuated with the smell.

    Kaz Hirai sucks. Just cos' his PSPgo was a flop, it doesn't mean that he can judge anyone else, especially Nintendo

    I think he might be misquoted on this and he was more like:

    "I'm so secretly impressed by this, but I have to keep my admiration up in wraps so I can develop a 3D PSP in secret for 3 years and show it off at E3 2013!"

    Sony - 2006: "With the DS, it's fair to say that Nintendo stepped out of the technical race and went for a feature differentiation with the touch screen. But I fear that it won't have a lasting impact beyond that of a gimmick - so the long-lasting appeal of the platform is at peril as a direct result of that."

    Difference here is that the 3DS doesn't just have a limited technical specification and some gimmicky looking touch screen stuff but it has some serious hardware behind it. THe 3D effect can be turned off and the console looks amazing still! Better than the PSP if current screenshots are to be believed and the same quality can be kept in full games.
    Sony are doing what can be expected but they're still talking out their arse.
