Yah, I’ve had those concerns too. I definitely don’t see Sony crushing Nintendo, they’ll have to work to remain competitive. As I said in the other 3D, DS or PSP, 3D games have a whole host of difficulties on portables that I don’t see either overcoming any time soon, but we’ll see how it works out. Sony did say that they were lowering license fees for the platform and the UMD media is supposed to be really cheap, so maybe that will help with production costs.
Though I don’t really care who owns it, Nintendo’s shown they know portable design and gaming really well for over 15 years, and Sony’s always got their stuff together. Hopefully 2D gaming will live on somehow. :cry:
In other news, it does have the rumored increase in RAM up to 32MB and 4MB VRAM. I haven’t heard whether its of the same rechargeable sort of battery as the SP though, I would imagine so.
It was very nice though when the GBA always played so differently from the major consoles, and if I could chose one route, right now, I’d still want the GBA to dominate. I really don’t give a shit whether some hot shot sploogy developer who wacks off to polygon counts think its too underpowered to make good games, anyone who has an ounce of talent and creativity knows the real deal.
Ah well, it has Ape Escape (over here Saru Getchu!), so that means I have to get it one day (though one wonders how it plays without two analog sticks)! ;) Looks like Ridge Racer, a Tales of game, Dynasty Warriors and MGS also showed up on the system game roll. Yikes!
No announced pricing? I hope that doesn’t mean we should assume the worst, but we’ll see.
Meh, I’m too tired, I already saw what the DS looked like, so I’ll catch the rest in the morning.
