[THG] Sony PSP Outsells the Nintendo 3DS in Japan - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I wanted a 3DS but the launch titles were garbage in my opinion. Great if you don't have a DS but not worth getting till more games start appearing.

Off-topic: Reminds me of the PS3 launch

They should have held off Pokemon's release for the 3DS then it would have sold by the container load.

Not really off-topic. Trying to find titles for the PS3 at launch was like trying find cacti in a boreal forest. The situation is similar for the 3DS.

Pretty much this. All Nintendo had to do was release a title they knew would sell like hotcakes at launch such as Pokemon and make it a 3DS exclusive with depth-defying visuals or whatever and the 3DS would have got out on a flying start... well better than the fledgling stumble out of the nest they actually had.

Have no fear peepz, Nintendo is just faking you out with these numbers. I don't really think that not selling out for the first 6 months is a bad thing. I'm very confident there are more than one or two more GOOD games in the works for the system. Have a little patience while they work out the kinks. I'm pretty sure the less than "multi billion units shipped" launch will be forgotten as time goes by and more and more gamers drop their DS' and pick these up instead. This screams that the system is ahead of it's time.

I personally am waiting for the next gen psp.

Didn't Japan have something big happen like a 9.0 earthquake?

Not just from Nintendo, but:

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
Mega Man Legends 3
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Star Fox 64 3D
Cave Story 3D
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney
Tales of the Abyss
Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3
Resident Evil: Revelations
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D

Plus, combined with unannounced games in the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Shin Megami Tensei, Etrian Odyssey, etc. series, the 3DS will be in great shape within the year. Of course, not all of the above will release this year, but even ignoring the ports it's still quite the lineup.

Despite the earthquake, doesn't justify the PSP sales of that week to the 3DS... or it just means people needing to replace their PSP

Games coming out for it are great, but Nintendo should of just waited till more lineups came out. Only game that would be noticing was Pokemon since it was 3DS ready.

3ds does not seem like a next-gen hand held device. the next sony hand held/phone is going to dominate the globe. Then nintendo can be all like.. OH no.. I know..


AND THEN SONY WILL BE COOLAID GUY
