|Sony makes games, I know. I never said they were good though. And oh yeah, I can talk, because when Nintendo actually makes games by themselves, they sell like chocolate chip cookies from just about every casual gamer out there. I've yet to see a game developed by Sony itself that has made such an impact on it's "fanboys".|
|My point was that the PSP was just as guilty of not changing as the DS throughout its iterations. The PSP2 offers much more options than the 3DS, and you should know what I'm talking about if you're willing to argue about how the PSP2 wasn't a huge difference from the PSP.|
|It's not the fault of Sony that their fanboys don't enjoy buying the same game time and time again. By the way, the PSP was still a huge achievement considering this was Sony's first handheld and Nintendo crushed every other competitor back then.|
|Um, Sony makes games, and the PSP has a lot of support from other developers too. I honestly don't think you should talk about crap handheld remakes with absolutely no change whatsoever, considering Nintendo(note: not third party developers) does the exact same thing. Ever heard of Naughty Dog? Polyphony Digital? Guerilla Games? Media Molecule? Team ICO? They even have SCE studios peppered everywhere.|

The main focus of the 3DS is the 3D. And I honestly doubt that the commercials will get the public wanting a 3DS for the surprisingly strong power it has as a handheld console. I wouldn't call it a gimmick if it affected gameplay.
Also, when did I ever say it had terrible buttons? The closest I can remember was when I called the 'Home' button completely unnecessary and that's it.

|It would be much better if you could explain how the PSP changes these "gameplay-altering" features other than being completely vague about it.|
Is it that you don't understand what I'm saying, or do you refuse to refute my argument? Or are you hating because Nintendo actually made the very first handheld that slaps around every version of the PSP ever made? You can make every single remark about Mario. Link, Samus and Pokemon all that you can, but I bet you that you can't come up with one game ever made by Sony itself that has lasted more than 20 years and have millions of fans.
Yeah, I thought so.
|And don't you dare say Final Fantasy, because you know as well as I do that was Square Enix. At least Nintendo, as a company by itself, could actually make games. While I do admit that Sony spends other time making my microwave, television, CD player and laptop, thats still no excuse not to spend some other time not making crap handheld remakes with absolutely little to no change whatsoever.|
|Sorry to say, but if the only thing you have against the 3DS is that it's a gimmick and that it has "terrible" buttons, that really shows how much of a pure blind sony fanboy you are, which in itself, is pretty sad. Just being blunt here.|
an ingenious or novel device, scheme, or stratagem, especially one designed to attract attention or increase appeal.
|The 3DS is a gimmick for the most part. 3D will not be anything gameplay changing, that's what makes it a gimmick. The analog stick does actually change gameplay, but I'd hardly think a DS with a horrible battery and an analog stick would be worth $250.|
|Actually, Sony did the same thing Nintendo did. The PSP 2000 was a slimmer version of the 1000(just like the DSLite) and the 3000 added a new higher resolution screen and added a microphone. And the PSP2 is just as guilty of not changing with design since the 3DS, but at least it has much more gameplay altering features, rather than a small 'ooh' factor. And I don't even understand what you're saying by this point, the PSP not changing is not a gimmick. The 3DS is a gimmick because it flaunts 3D, a useless feature that doesn't change gamplay whatsoever, it's not because it didn't change much from the 3DS.|
