Sony sony sony i really do pity you.You can win a console war hands down but your completely brainless towards the handheld world.As you all and I know, last generation the PSP was destroyed going up against the DS but hey it was Sonys first time entering the handheld world so it was obvious mistakes were going to happen.But with those mistakes we also expected for Sony to learn from there faults,yet it doesnt seem like they have.
1.No new way in spicing up games
First and foremost every console should have some sort of system seller.Weather its a feature or games,a system seller is needed to make the console worthy of buying.Yet the NGP has none.I dare all of you to think of just 1 system seller going for the NGP.If you said games..Wrong!If you look at the NGPs games that have already been announced all you see is the same franchises that have been on the PS3.Which yes is a bad thing.If you know Sony, you would know that when it comes down to there handhelds all they do is put there big franchises on the system and tweak the controls.Nothing special is put into there games because there handheld sysems have nothing special to offer
2.What the 3DS has to offer
Yet with the 3DS the main system seller is the 3D.The 3D effects ingame not only look amazing but it also creates fun and innovative new ways to play games.But it doesnt stop there the 3DS has 2 more system sellers which are the mic and the camera (yes the camera is used in games).
3.Developers will go to the 3DS(Lower developement cost + Bigger audience)
With all of the praise the NGP is getting for how powerful it is,in a way its one of its biggest downfalls.Developers now are cheap and there going to look for the best way to save money but still put out a great gaming experience.All the power packed inside of the NGP raises the development cost of games causing the developers to spend way more money making games on the NGP rather than the 3DS.So basically game developers can pull off what they want on the 3DS and sill have a cheaper development process.And along with all off this the 3DS fanbbase is double if not more than the NGPs.Developers will go for the 3DS.
What Sony fails to understand is that we dont need a PS3 on the go.If we want a PS3 we should go buy a PS3.But when making a new console it needs to have its own identity.
