    Ignoring everything else, I'll just respond to this:

    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".
    Team ICO and Naughty Dog are one of the most revered studios these days, with Polyphony Digital being the creator of the most famous driving simulator ever. And Team ICO games have affected almost everyone, not just Sony fanboys. Shadow of the Colossus and Ico are referred to as art more than any Nintendo series, that can't be a small feat.

    And Nintendo games sell like hotcakes because everyone knows that Zelda and Mario are a quality series. Pikmin didn't sell nearly as good as Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy 2 partly because Gamecube sales sucked, and partly because people can't trust new IPs.

    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.
    Alright then, what options does the PSP2 offer that it's predecessors didn't already offer before? I'd love to hear.

    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.
    If you're a Sony fanboy and you don't enjoy buying the same game from the company you fanboy over, there's seriously something wrong with that picture, dontcha think?

    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.
    If I'm making a commercial about the 3DS, I'm advertising the system for the system. The fans aren't stupid, they've seen 3D before, unless they've lived in either a cave or a rock their entire lives. If I were to make a commercial, introducing 3D would be the primary focus, of course, because its the first time that fans would have ever seen this on a Nintendo console. The buttons would come second, the camera and whatnot and the other features would come last because fans wouldn't be attracted to those as much as they would the 3D. If people wanted to know how the Home button and the analog stick and whatever else works, they can get the system and find out for themselves. A commercial isn't a tutorial, it's there to persuade people to buy a certain product, obviously.

    And you did say that it had a terrible analog stick. Is this because you're accusing it of copying the PSP because it's analog stick is supposedly better? How does insulting the analog stick make any logical sense whatsoever, unless you frequently get blisters on your thumb because of them(in that case, why are you even bothering with Sony controllers?), there's really no way you can insult the 3DS's analog stick because it just wouldn't make any sense.

    Also:

    Quote originally posted by Wikipedia:
    In marketing language, a gimmick is a unique or quirky special feature that makes something "stand out" from its contemporaries. However, the special feature is typically thought to be of little relevance or use. Thus, a gimmick is a special feature for the sake of having a special feature
    I can't see how the 3D would be of little use, thats the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, to be honest.

    Why thank you for stating an opinion that has no factual bearing to the argument whatsoever.

    Is it me, or are your arguments getting more and more opinionated by the sentence? Seriously? I would love to see a list of everything groundbreaking the PSP has gameplay wise that completely outclasses the 3DS.

    One of the important points of the 3DS is to flaunt around the 3D, which is a major point of the system, and a major money seller and what gets people hooked into it the most. Most people disagree with the fact that graphics is the single aspect that makes the game, but a lot of us can't deny that graphics play a damn well good part in how we'll play a game.

    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.

    And before you retort and say something about "My Nintendo fanboyism" keep in mind that I'm not even fond of both companies. Yet I still know that Sony has area to improve in when it comes to certain areas(and believe me, Nintendo has the same issue, too), but at least Nintendo is doing an impressive job getting people's once technologically illiterate grandmothers into video gaming, and that's an achievement in itself.

    I don't see that you have a 3DS, therefore I don't think you should be saying that it would be a gimmick in any sense whatsoever. Have you played Ocarina of Time on the 3DS? Most likely not, your comments are purely only "sony fanboy" biased with no factual backup whatsoever; I should be saying you shouldn't be arguing about this if you can't provide concrete evidence of your claims of how "gimmicky" the system actually is. I actually think it's a whole new turn of events than the previous released DS's, and like I said before, the majority of the 3DS is primarily asthetics, while the other half is gameplay.

    Since you're so busy bashing the 3DS, why don't I "bash" the PSP? And like the ten other versions that Sony made that were basically no different from the first version whatsoever, because guess what? They all did the same thing. Wow, music player, internet, every flipping PSP can do that, so please remind me(unless I'm forgetting something here, which yeah) why Sony even bothered to continuously upgrade their PSP console when they're really changing nothing whatsoever about the console itself?

    At least with the 3DS, there are some really notable changes in system design; there is in every flipping new DS that comes out. The only biggest difference I can see with the PSPs now is the PSPgo which is basically a ripoff android phone with some buttons thrown on it.

    And if I haven't made my point clear enough, The PSP2 doesn't even all that different. Seriously. They just took the regular design of the original PSP, made it thinner and reposition the buttons(give or take some) and add some high quality graphics, and boom. A PSP2.

    So before you go on and on and all this crap about how the 3DS is a "gimmick", maybe you should take a closer look at the PSP and how it "evolved" over the generations, and how it basically never even changed from the start, being the same ol' console it was when it first came out.

    At least the DSi made it something worthwhile with some people's time, I could draw pictures, take them/have internet access(no matter how crappy it is. Oh trust me, the PSP's internet isn't anything superb either, so don't even go there). The 3DS is taking it an extra step further by combining all of these features and then some.

    Besides, if you're not impressed by the 3DS, then don't get it. I can't see how it would be that hard to fathom.

    No, I mean it's crappy at tracking you. If you dare to move the Wiimote too fast, it ignores your movements. I'm not talking about an on-rails shooter where the Wii is used as a cursor, I'm talking about games like Twilight Princess which involves you swinging your arms around in order to swing your sword. I tried the Move, the controller is much more comfortable, it's vastly more accurate and can follow your movements much better than the Wiimote can. The WMP doesn't count as only a handful of games support it right now, and likely none of those are any good. You've clearly never tried Move if you honestly prefer using the Wiimote, even with WMP and the jacket.

    That ruins the point of the 3DS if you can just turn it off(which, trust me, if I ever get the 3DS, I will turn it off immediately). I would compare it to the Wii if you could just use a GameCube controller instead, but this is different because 3D is an actual gimmick. It serves no purpose other than to impress the player for 5 minutes before they turn it off because they realize they can't beat Ocarina of Time for the umpteenth time with only 4 hours. Now. Your claim was that I didn't show any evidence showing 3D won't affect gameplay, however that was a response to someone who said it was an actual feature. If you agree with me that 3D is nothing more than a gimmick, then you really shouldn't be arguing about this.
