    With the Nintendo 3DS announcement generating a lot of buzz today in the interwebs, a lot of people are expecting Sony to fireback with the announcement of their own. Well they didn't, but they have a lot to say with the Big N's surprise revelation. Speaking with IGN, SCEA's Director of Hardware and Marketing John Koller has said that fans should not expect a 3D PSP anytime soon:

    Meh; Sony always seem to be naysaying what Nintendo is doing... and then ripping it off a year or two later. For them I have only a few choice words.

    Real time... weapon change?

    MASSIVE DAMAGE

    Also, getting into 3-D console gaming so early might be a mistake. It's going to rely on people having the new special TVs, and those will be expensive as hell for quite a while to come... not to mention that the first couple generations will probably look like ass.

    I agree, it makes more sense on a handheld. That said, I'm glad the PS3 will support it soon. A few years ago, no one had an HDTV either. It's only a matter of time before 3D TVs become affordable. Having a game console, games and movies that support it only makes it more interesting.

    Is that a statement of fact... a sarcastic retort... or something else?

    3DTV will not be the standard in 4 years. A lot of people haven't even bought into HDTV yet, and all those people who have bought HDTVs might not want to go out and spend yet another $5000 on a new TV technology that probably won't even look that good for at least 1.5 to 2 years. It's easy for a 19 year-old to say something like this... what exactly do you pay for all by yourself? The reality is only suckers are going to buy 3DTVs in the first year after they're introduced. As I said, the first (and probably second) generation of this technology is going to look like crap.

    Personally I'm waiting until 3DTV has matured a little bit before buying into it. I did the same with HDTV, and ended up with a vastly superior set to those people who bought early and ended up with inferior junk.

    Abso-freaking-lutely.

    Seriously Sony, shut the fuck up already.

    This trash talk is nothing but fear. They know the Apple monster is moving in. And although Apple will effect Nintendo, they'll hurt Sony a lot more.

    Sony also knows that Nintendo has one upped them once again.

    tbh, portable 3d isn't something we need yet. people aren't even enjoying it at home yet. sony are doing alright by introducing their ps3 as a medium for it at home, right now its just a matter of pricing of 3dtv's.

    Uh huh. Let me know how your prediction of the DS's failure went too, Sony.

    Have they no shame? Not satisfied with badmouthing Nintendo and ripping THEM off, now they've stolen Dr Emmett L Brown's technology! What next? Ripping off Jesus by making a PSP to bring back the dead and die for our sins? [​IMG]

    That's actually remarkably accurate. The DS is woefully underpowered, and that's had a detrimental effect. Slowdown in DS games is pretty common. It's amazing how much gamers will put up with in that sense.

    And only a handful of games ever utilized the touchscreen in a meaningful or innovative way. The World Ends With You, Elite Beat Agents, and Zelda come to mind. Everything else includes touchscreen controls where they are inappropriate or unnecessary as a token feature because Nintendo _requires_ all developers to implement them in some way.

    Claiming that this negates the long term appeal was an exaggeration, but it does seem that the DS accomplished everything possible within the first couple years and afterward has consisted of variations on those themes, or periods like the last year where there simply was very little of interest or merit.

    Thats the thing though. Remember those 3D Eye books that were all the rage back then? Those books sold like hotcakes. Now, would you want the same thing on a TV screen? What if I told you that you had to use special glasses? DO NOT WANT you say?

    Well thats the same premise Nintendo is using. Portable 3D just makes a hell of a lot more sense than 3D at home.
