    Nothing new, Sony has always used lies and arrogance as a marketing strategy since PS1.

    Sure Sony, the 3DS is an updated DS, much in the same way that the NGP is nothing but an updated PSP. Oh but wait, the 3DS gives 3D without glasses... what do you have? A touch screen on the back? Haha I think I'll take the "updated DS", and I haven't even bought my 3DS yet, but I will in a matter of weeks when OOT is released.

    lol

    well ignoring the source i think its true
    i mean we are talking about the company "its your fault we where hacked"

    lol the 3DS is a upgraded DS with better anti-piracy

    the NGP is not a upgraded PSP, its a PS3 in a PSP that plays games where the signing codes have been leaked so people can hack on day one because we always leave holes

    NGP and 3DS are directly comparable, in fact the only differences are the analog sticks, dual screen on 3DS, 3D obviously and rear touch pad.
    Both have the same potential for games now (excluding 3G version NGP) it comes down to what developers can do with it.
    In fact this gen is more comparable than PSP and DS where DS could focus on touch screen games and PSP utilised its power.

    Not to pick sides or anything, but I've played on 3DS' numerous times and the product doesn't justify the hype OR the price. Plus I've no emotional attachment to ocarina or interest in playing the remake so I might as well look forward to NGP. [​IMG] That second analog is just too enticing.

    EDIT: I will miss pokemon though [​IMG]

    You could say practically the same thing about NGP. In my opinion, it doesn't matter if the 3DS is an updated DS. Remember the amount of new features added from NES to SNES? Why is it that when a new console comes out, people expect it to do something crazy and new? Just give me good games and I don't care if you're using the same controller features for decades.

    What choices have they made?

    Overpowered handheld with a back touch pad and extra analog stick?

    Yes, that way more interesting. [​IMG]

    Right behind you
    I don't even bother listening to Sony anymore, since they contradict everything they say anyways:

    -The Rumble Pack was a "gimmick" on the N64 but force feedback gave the gamer "a new dimension" with the dualshock
    -Above similarly for touchscreens on DS/NGP
    -When Wii came out, motion gaming was a "childish gimmick" but with the Move it's "the future of gaming" and "hardcore"
    -DS/3DS are "babysitting tools" and uncool to be seen with in public by adults, but somehow the PSP is "cool" to be seen with in public
    -3D is a "gimmick" on the 3DS, but is somehow "not a gimmick" and "mind blowing" on PS3 3D games
    -And my personal favorite, since according to Sony the PSP/NGP crowd is for "hardcore gamers":

    "Our primary focus, and about 40 percent of our demographic right now, is in that 13- to 17-year-old consumer base. We’ve seen a lot of growth in the under-12, with UMD games in particular, and we’ve obviously made some noise about the Hannah Montana pack and some other products that we’ll be launching for that demographic." (Sony's John Koller, 2009)

    You can't get more hardcore then Hannah Montana.
