    If I were creating a language, I'd make the word "Sony" mean both "hypocrite" and "copy-cat".

    Also, the last time Nintendo worked with Sony, it was during the SNES years with making a CD-addon which got cancelled because Nintendo cancelled the contract between them; a contract that was found out to only give Sony the advantage by giving them all profits and Nintendo with none of it. What makes Sony think Nintendo will want to join in when Sony has been bashing them for years on something they have now copied?

    Sony is a large group of retards that doesn't know what the user wants. Of course we are going to prefer no glasses.

    So Sony doesn't want Nintendo to advertise a major feature of the 3ds?

    imagine a player wearing a pair of red/blue glasses when spinning his hand around the remote with a purple bulb on top
    ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you the Sony Move 3D
    (Fun fact: it will be more effective if you wear light green and yellow clothes when playing )

    That after years and years of bashing the DS and Wii for being "underpowered" and "casual" and "childish" and "gimmicky". "You shouldn't bash our glasses, that isn't nice, boo hoo hoo."

    I have nothing against Sony, but their PR and marketing department is a horde of monkeys on keyboard (but without enough time).

    I just think Sony is thinking, we are invested in this 3D technology and were scared shitless noone will want it.

    Fact: Consumers don't want 3D TVs. I think I read somewhere that less then 20% have minimal interest in it.

    I think it is because of the glasses.

    Seriously, you really shouldn't make fun of your competitors' consoles, really. It's not nice. Sony would never stoop that low and do that to their competitors... I mean fellow console makers, yes, that's the word, fellow companies; they would never. Honestly.


    NOTHING TO SEE HERE

    I don't think any collaboration between Sony and Nintendo will work. It failed once before when they tried to with the PS1.

    Nintendo and Sony are actually much the same, that is, very controlling companies. Neither one will want to share with the other in a way that both can agree on.

    Sony really are full of shit these days... after all the bashing of their competition (rather than a more professional route), they claim this? God, it makes me wonder if anyone at Sony these days even has a functioning brain. Morons.

    I honestly don't know what to say.

    Wait a minute, I do.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    And now on a slightly more serious note: Sony's gaming department won't last much longer. Eventually their own fanboys will grow tired of the constant bashing of rivalling video game companies and quit them. Farewell Sony, you will be remembered as the company that couldn't stand losing.

    And now, Sony fanboys have something else to add to their arsenal of easily-shot-down-arguments.

    Praise the industry!

    Sony is become a complete joke.
    Not only are they desperate by trying so balantly to copy cat the Wii remote and claiming that they can do it better, now with this 3D campaign ( which will make games look worse believe me, the PS3 hardware is already struggling to output nice 1080p graphic and keep a smooth frame rate, imagine what it'll be like when games will have to output twice the frames from different perspectives for each eye ) and the fact that requires you to buy new expensive TVs ( and a lot of us just spent some $$$$ not so long ago for new HDTVs ) and wear expensive and uncomphy glasses , they are getting ridiculous.
    Now Nintendo should stop making fan of them glasses ? Last time I checked , it's been Sony that was totally merciless toward Nintendo, I even remember the Gamecube days ( the GC was slightly more powerful then a PS2, but sold modestly in comparison ) and Sony would make fun of the GC because it was ' purple and had a handle ', I'll never forget it for making fun of the children friendly Nintendo looks and capitalizing on the fact that they were making hardcore games fro grownups when in reality most of the 3rd part games where distributed equally between the 3 main platforms ( and usually the Xbox would end up with the superior version, followed by the GC and PS2 ).
    So now they want Nintendo to shot up and stop making fun of their glasses, and I bet they are still dying because they didn't think about it first ( the glassless 3D ) and now they look for mercy ........

    Ahh, Sony...slowly realizing that they're on the sinking ship (in terms of 3D/Handhelds/Casual-Games) and now acting like a little child...don't we all love Sony [​IMG]?

    (I mean, they aren't serious, are they [​IMG]?)

    But aren't they competitors in the video game industry? Nintendo shouldn't listen, imo. They're doing fine with their advertising even if they are directly or indirectly bashing Sony's use of 3D glasses.
    You have to promote some how and the best way is to make yourself seem better and not the same or worse as others.

    3D will be a bigger fail than new coke, mostly because of the glasses and because there hardly is any added experience for it with normal stuff. Now Nintendo knows how to turn this fail into a success, and when Sony was busy promoting their shit, Nintendo made the 3DS. And now Sony is pissed they didn't invent it, and in a desperate attempt to make their own shit look better they bash the 3DS. They always do this. Whenever Sony bashes something you should go with that they're bashing.

    LOL, at time index 1:07, he makes fun of people doing that motion, yet I'm sure I've seen something like that with a Sony product, of some middle-age woman (and another guy) shooting things with invisible guns and making sound effects. I wish I could find that video.

    3D glasses are shite. I dont want to wear them. You dont want to wear them. I Will NEVER buy a 3D TV... Not when I can get a 3DS... And think about it... Not long untill 32" glasses free tv's will be on sale... Its only a matter of time.
    Nintendo lead the way. Again.... Your iphone would not exist if it were not not for nintendo ds's touch screen and nintendo wii's motion control games.
    3DS glasses free 3D games and movies is MY future.
