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

    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.
    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 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.

    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.
    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.

    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.

    By "accuracy", do you mean it's horrendous to attempt to point the Wiimote at the sensor bar and attempt to get it working? That's the kind of sensitivity I was referring to. You can alter it's sensitivity to affect it's accuracy.

    And the shape of the controller matters to an extent, but don't say holding something like a dildo isn't as equally uncomfortable(I know this is overused, but so is your brick statement). If it was between holding a sex toy and a brick in my hand, I'd much prefer the brick, thanks. The Wiimote may be plain, but so is the PSmove. You yourself said that the Wiimote is nothing but a brick with buttons on it. Can I also say that the PSMove is nothing but a sex object with buttons on it, too? So what would be the difference then? One is more comfortable than the other? I mean, you have stuff like the Wii jacket, yknow(laughable, but reasonable at the same time). It serves more than one purpose other than to prevent abuse while holding the controller. There are also other forms of jackets that make holding the wii controller less "painful", as you may or may not imply it is.

    And I just told you, did you not read my post? Obviously you didn't if you skipped over the part where I mentioned that it was obvious that 3D can be utilized for almost nothing else other than aesthetic pleasures. Sure, you have more people often than not that really don't care about graphics and prefer actual gameplay to graphics, but when you have something like the 3DS, graphics is pretty much 50-60% of what the console is about. The remaining half or so is the actual gaming.

    I mean, think about this in a more realistic manner. You're sitting in a movie theater, watching your favorite movie. In theory, you could enjoy the movie without any 3D, but you would actually find it better and more pleasing if you put some 3D glasses on, because it would feel like as if you were actually there.

    Now(back to the 3DS) am I saying that people would automatically picture they're in Mushroom Kingdom and actually fighting Bowser and saving oh-so-poor Princess Peach? Of course not. It's for aesthetics, and it's for the sake that people would hooked onto the games easier than if it weren't on "3D". With this in mind, games of popular franchises would sell so much more smoothly because people would get hooked on them easier than the original, plain, boring DS games that people would lose motivation in playing after going through a single playthrough.

    Besides, if you don't care as much, there's always the option to turn it off. n__n;

    Tool (specifically anything with Maynard J. Keenan in it) is my favorite, and adding to that list, along with a little Korn, old Rise Against, Bullet for my Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Atreyu, Chevelle, Godsmack, etc. Things like that.
