In all fairness, parallax barrier screens (like the one the 3DS uses) have been used in other devices, like a Fujifilm 3D camera and I believe there's a GPS unit that uses it. It just hasn't been used in a gaming device before.
Honestly, the reason to have a 3DS is for all the cool (mostly 1st party) games that are coming out for it. As far as why you should have one right now, it's basically so you get to play around with it early. I can totally understand why people would want to wait, though.

Of course the NGP has more going on than the 3DS. So does the iPad. Of these three objects one is a gaming device; the other two are tablet PCs, one of which is having an identity crisis.
By your logic every piece of gaming hardware would have to immediately be considered innovative prior to its release.Originally Posted by DPyro
It'd be like walking around two years ago saying:
"Show me a portable with two screens, the bottom of which is a touch screen, and a friggin' camera AND both screens are like, 4.2 in. wide! Doesn't exist? Yeah, innovative son!"
or going back to early 1998 and saying:
"Show me a Gameboy with some goddamn color! Nintendo be 'vatin' son!"

NGP is just as much of a gaming platform as 3DS is.
[QUOTE=jp.;487219]I just call it how I see it.
I like it very much. :nod:
Can we play together ?
I don't see anything hot about the NGP, just more of the same. That said, I m welcoming any demos to impress me - graphics alone I don't care much for.
You can ask for any old woman
You can ask for an army of ants
You can ask for a pillar of poison
You can ask for sheep and shavers
And you can die for
Be careful what you wish for
However, I am simply stating that it seems more like an iPad to me than something I would purchase for gaming purposes. Nintendo already did the touch screen gimmick, so Sony adding more "touch surfaces" is equivalent to the jump from Wii to Kinect (well, maybe not exactly, since the Kinect is actually a solid basis for a lot of neat tech, just not so interesting for gaming).
I think you need to stop acting like the NGP is your child or something. Not all of us feel the need to throw ourselves at the feet of the almighty Sony. :shrug:
How is stating an opinion making something up?
I feel that Sony's handheld products are more like iPads, or souped up cell phones without the ability to call people. That is my opinion.
If you said you felt the 3DS was a toy, and was a souped up Game&Watch or something, chances are I wouldn't really care. ;-)
