"Re(10):PSP" , posted Sun 19 Sep 16:43:
IMO the DS is more interisting:
-well it do have new ideas
It has a new idea, but just like psp is gonna have ports, ds is gonna have bs games where they just put a menu on the 2nd screen. it's the next nintendo portable after all, so people are just gonna slam whatever ideas they had before on this and just do some weak adaptaion to the ds probably. also, there's no way for this thing to last, i'll give it that it may have a short burst of truly inventive games, but it's either that then dies, or half ass games into eternity.
don't care. and if you actually use this as a portable, i don't think many will. it's not an n-gage, talking into this thing on some bench somehwere will make you look 3 times as bad as totally sidetalkin.
this idea...i..don't know. it's dangerous. i don't like having to come in contact with the screen really, i dont want to have to worry about scratches and it being clean, and it's obviously going to break down at some point. i know the bottom screen is reinforced, but games like the sonic game cannot be good for it. then you have the metroid where you shoot by touching? i'm usually open minded, but not only does this have nothing to do with the spirit of metroid, it seems like a really clumsy set up. Simple Palm Pilot style features with the stylus are okay, but i really don't care about this gamewise i don't think, not yet anyway, i can think of a few things myself, but we'll see.
like i said, 2 screens doesn't necessarily mean GAME REVOLUTION, we'll have to see. Obviously the PSP is more powerful, because the ds divides power between the screens, so if "normal" means high profile, then i'm okay with that.
not too much basis for this, new ps2 games range from 20 to 50 depending on various things, i don't see what would force this so high. umd isn't too huge anyway, and they're supposed to be releasing music and dvds on them, so why would they be more expensive, and why more expensive than ds which also uses discs? don't make things up.
-it will be for sure big (IT WON'T fit in your pocket!).
Again, what the hell are you talking about? it's about the same size and the DS i believe, in fact, probably thinner since it doesnt have the fold over screen. the screen takes up more of the handheld, they didn't make the machine bigger to hold the screen, things are just closer together to take more advantage of the size. Don't make things up.
Reminds me, PSP isn't particularly "normal" either. The only reason anyone should think the psp is going to be expensive is because of all the addons and ports it has all over it anyway, similar to the original vision for the ps2, this will be an entertainment machine, not a gameboy.
