    I'm really wondering about this, but am I the only one to look at the 3DS and say "Oh, hey a PSP with new upgrades" instead of "Hey, a better DS" ?

    Dude you need to get your eyes checked out if you think the Nintendo 3DS is ANYTHING like a psp, I can't even think of a similarity, you name one.

    Eh, so much for wanting an honest answer in a Nintendo-based forum.

    I see PSPs as oval and round.

    the 3DS is square.

    Shapes make everything better!

    Yeah... No. The 3DS is nothing like the PSP. They are both okay handhelds (In my opinion, the PSP is terrible), but the 3DS does things in a totally different direction than the PSP.

    It's just you. I own a PsP. It's safe to say that the 3DS and the PsP look, sound and play nothing alike. Shoot, the nub on the prototype 3DS looks like it's going to have a way better comfort/build factor, than the PsP.

    I'll be completely honest, I didn't think that whatsoever.

    I thought it was more a upgraded DSi.

    I definitely disagree. It looks like it'll have PSP-or-better graphics, and a better analog nub, but that's all the similarity I can see.

    Mehh, I have to agree that the 3DS and the PSP seem to have nothing in common...

    Sure, it's got an analog nub. But what do you expect? Honestly, I hated the DS's lack of one. Adding one to the 3DS is an expected and necessary upgrade. Unless you LIKE controlling Mario with unreliable touch controls, that is!

    The graphics and resolution are bumped up. Once again, it happens with every new system, and they're a big improvement over the original DS line's sub-standard quality.

    The Wifi features have been expanded. Yet again, expected, and needed.

    Digging deep into the "nobody cares except Geoflcl Zone", it seems that Ninty is yet again going for a different approach with their handheld than Sony does. We haven't heard about any emphasis on media support or anything, showing that Nintendo wants the 3DS to be more of a flat-out game system, as compared to Sony, who usually label their consoles as "entertainment devices", in that they do more than just games. Totally different directions, which isn't a bad thing for either company.

    Although Sony and Nintendo are competitors, they've always done things differently. No one's copying anybody, in my opinion.

    If you could list some of the similarities you see between the two consoles, maybe you'll get less criticism (I hope so, anyway [​IMG] )

    As you know, I have a PSP too, but my thought was still that it was an upgraded DS rather than a PSP copy. I did see screenshots of Ridge Racer, and it looked similar, and there are some similarities such as the analog stick and a wider screen, but no, I don't think I had the same thought as you.
