    Okay, I was honestly hoping somebody else would post this, but it looks like I have no choice:

    I don't get the bother with Sony not giving a price, since it also took Nintendo a year to give a price for the 3DS

    The issue here is mostly just people guessing that the price will be astronomical and wanting some assurance that it will be somewhat reasonable. We know that Sony is at least willing to sell for a loss, but that implies that this thing is, indeed, pretty expensive to begin with.

    Probably not any absurd amount above $499.99 like some people have guessed, but even $349.99 is kind of pushing things. That said, the price shouldn't be expected this far away from launch either. No reason to get people worked up about that when they just want to show off the system and games as the priority for now.

    While it did take a while for 3DS pricing to come out, I think the circumstances are a little different - people did not expect it to be radically more expensive than its' predecessors and were surprised/dismayed when it was.

    Sony has a reputation for expensive products and one of the pivotal factors in whether people (me) buy the NGP is price, which I think they will struggle with. It seems as though their reticence to announce/speculate publicly on pricing is making some people think it will be prohibitively expensive, hence the hand-wringing.

    On another note, the rear-touchpad seems like a good way to maintain touch control while manipulating all the face controls easily. My only concern is that in the few videos I have seen of it being handled look like you have to sacrifice a good grip on your expensive toy in order to use it properly. If it does end up costing $lolsony I would be concerned about dropping it.

    I wonder what people will consider to be "not excessive" in terms of PSP2 pricing

    Like I said, my sweet spot is $300.

    $350 is a bit too much, but if great software hit while it was at that price point I might bite. $400 is out of the question.

    $300 is reasonable. At $300, I wouldn't buy it day one, but I would pick it up when a good top-tier game came out for it, say Uncharted or God of War. At $350 though, I'll bow out until either a price drop, or a hardware revision comes out.

    That said, at $250 I'd buy it day one.

    I'm going to say that with everything they have shown $349.99 won't be too excessive, but it would be beyond what I would be willing to pay. Already the NGP is rather far removed from what I want to buy in the near future as I would rather have a 3DS and PS3 before I even consider it.

    One handheld might be enough for me honestly, but I'm still excited at the notion of this product, which is something that I didn't really expect the reveal to do for me.

    Eh, they're a year away from release. Personally, I find it reassuring that they're contemplating finally moving away from their PlayStation N naming convention.

    But honestly, they're so damn resistant to change, I fully expect it'll just be the PSP2, and then the PS4 will come out, and it'll have the same damn controllers again.

    I'm guessing they don't have a name for it yet because they didn't want to go against 3DS with PSP2, what with 3 being the bigger number. It's the reason why Microsoft called their second console Xbox 360 rather than Xbox 2, if I recall correctly. They've probably got marketing people working around the clock trying to come up with a neat, marketable, powerful name for it. Something like PlayStation Nova or whatever, though I'm predicting they'll go with something lazy like PS3P.

    I think the fact that they were concerned enough to go out of their way to not call it a PSP2 during the presser when everyone and their mother was calling it a PSP2 is pretty telling.

    Not to get too industry-talkin' in here, but I am curious about one thing. Sony probably wanted to distance themselves from the disappointing performance of the PSP in the west. If they wanted to do that, then why on earth did they make the thing look exactly like a PSP?

    Edit: reVerse may be onto something.

    Some of that is pretty close to what I said about the name in the last thread:
    I actually think it might be good to play up the "PS3 on the go" angle but they probably don't want to go beyond something that can't have a nice three letter abbreviation either. Something like PS3 2.0 is just a bit too long and doesn't quite flow well. Playstation Next maybe? Playstation Nano? I think whatever the names ends up being they will obviously want to keep "Playstation" as part of it, just not the word "portable."

    Only yeah, I think they want to get rid of the "portable" moniker now simply based on it not being the PSP2 now. Still, there seems to be a strong consensus of the name starting with "N" and being four letters long here. I quite like the name of Nova there myself.

    Much like, I dunno, a 60 inch 3D 1080p TV at $1000 would be a steal, but I still wouldn't run out and buy it.

    Right. Given the very advanced tech at the time, the $600 PS3 was a decent price.

    It's just that nobody wanted to pay $600 for a game system.

    Well, really, considering that every single Sony device ever, from their TV's to the Playstation family to their cameras use the XMB, they are likely going to adapt it, or tell you to use the damn D-pad to navigate the menus

    So? How many Sony devices used the XMB before the PSP? None. There's no reason why they can't design a new one for a system that doesn't rely on a dpad like the PSP, PS3 or Sony TV's did before it. In fact, they quite obviously already have. As I said in the OP, the new UI is called LiveArea. You'll note there's no X's, M's or B's in that name. And adding the option would be stupid considering they've clearly designed a number of new features specifically for the new UI. How would you access them using the XMB? Pressing the bloody triangle button and scrolling down a list?

    I don't understand the complaining over it. Why on earth would you want to use a dpad when there's a far more intuitive method available? Don't want to get the screen dirty? Well luckily there's a fancy touch panel on the back.

    As for the price, I'm expecting US$250-300.

    Huh? The XMB was used in Sony cameras, TV's, and one version of the PS2 before the PSP came out. I have a Sony Cybershot that was made in 2002 that has an XMB on it.

    SCE created the XMB. Maybe they let the camera department have early access to it, so I'm a bit wrong there but still, my other points stand. The XMB is obsolete. The new one looks far more intuitive.

    I agree, the XMB could certainly be better. That doesn't negate the fact that it's loads better than the 360 UI. I love my 360 to death, but looking for, say, an indie game isn't intuitive. Also, it's riddled with ads despite that I pay $40/yr or so for gold.
    In theory, the XMB is way better than the 360 UI, the problem is, it doesn't actually work out to be that way. It's poorly organized, and worst of all, it's so slow to load up icons compared to my 360. People also keep talking about ads on the 360 dashboard, but all I've seen even resembling ads are things pointing out new games, I'm not sure what's wrong with advertising new releases on the arcade, but that could just be me...

    One of my biggest issues with both UI's is that for some stupid reason, the "Play game" option is never the default selected option when turning the system on. I know you can set it to just auto play on startup (on the 360 at least, haven't found an option on the PS3), but it's not an elegant solution. Sometimes you want to start in the dashboard, sometimes the game directly. Making the game the default selection would be the best option: in the dashboard if you need it, a quick flick of a button for the game. Instead, you always have to go past a few menus. It's really annoying after a while.

    not excessive for sony or for the consumer?

    i think anything north of $300 is going to be murder, but at the same time i doubt sony can afford to price it under $350. i have a suspicion though that sony is going to assume they can adopt the same batshit crazy insane pricing structure as apple and charge $400 for non 3G, $500 for 3G.

    Turn on your PS3 and go to your system settings. There is an option that makes "What's New" the default startup location. Turn that shit off. From then on, if you have a game loaded, it will highlight it first thing when you boot up. You can thank me in the form of a cash gift if you like.

    Because not everybody has the same opinions and preferences that you do. I prefer buttons to gestures and touchpads. I don't use the stylus to navigate menus on my DS when I can use the d-pad and buttons either. And every time I have to navigate Wii menus with the points when the d-pad / A button combo makes sense and would be more exact it makes me sad that Nintnedo didn't even give me the option.

    Personally speaking, I hate this thing

    I think the back touchscreen is pointless and stupid, I seriously cannot believe they're trying a fucking gyro a-fucking-gain after the goddamn debacle that was the sixaxis, it's gonna be super overpriced (at least 350 bucks, calling it now) nonsense and I can't believe that Sony learned nothing at all from the numerous mistakes they made from the PSP 1

    Finally I'm p pissed that Sony has seemed to learn from none-absolutely 0- of the mistakes they made with the PSP1, which is chiefly that portables are not home consoles, so stop fucking making portable home consoles. When I turn my DS or PSP on I want to play a portable game, not a watered down version of a PS3 or Wii game

    Nintendo has always understood this, Sony has still been unable to even grasp at the concept and instead prefers to give us Uncharted portable, the absolute last thing I want to play on the go

    because it's gonna be a poorly controlling, not as graphically wowing version of uncharted, but on a tinier screen

    if i were to play it, my constant and only thought whilst playing the game would be "I'd rather play this on a big screen with a dual shock 3"

    Also seriously making a major gameplay component of your game being controlled by a fucking gyro is bring back bed memories of throwing grenades in UC1


    plus it exacerbates my point, Sony doesn't know how to make a portable. All it knows how to do is making home consoles carryable, which is not the same thing and a waste of my dollars

    why spend oh let's say 350 dollars for a worse version of Uncharted which could have been done the exact same way on my PS3 whilst controlling better and i could've spent 60 dollars?

    to counterpoint, my DS experiences, and from what I've seen of the 3DS, my 3DS experiences, will be unique to that console. There are many DS games that i've played that are unreplicatable on the wii, and for that I am amazingly grateful. It feels like my DS has worth beyond Nintendo trying to squeeze a buck out of me by putting games that could've done perfectly fine on the Wii on the DS forcing me to spend 200 more bucks on their crap

    Sony? Not so much

    If the PSP2 gets the next Monster Hunter game, I will pick one up.

    If not, I will probably abstain.

    Basically, I go where MH goes.

    Nintendo has always understood this, Sony has still been unable to even grasp at the concept and instead prefers to give us Uncharted portable, the absolute last thing I want to play on the go

    Out of interest, why?

    because it's gonna be a poorly controlling, not as graphically wowing version of uncharted, but on a tinier screen

    if i were to play it, my constant and only thought whilst playing the game would be "I'd rather play this on a big screen with a dual shock 3"

    Also seriously making a major gameplay component of your game being controlled by a fucking gyro is bring back bed memories of throwing grenades in UC1


    plus it exacerbates my point, Sony doesn't know how to make a portable. All it knows how to do is making home consoles carryable, which is not the same thing and a waste of my dollars

    why spend oh let's say 350 dollars for a worse version of Uncharted which could have been done the exact same way on my PS3 whilst controlling better and i could've spent 60 dollars?

    to counterpoint, my DS experiences, and from what I've seen of the 3DS, my 3DS experiences, will be unique to that console.

    See, that is a purely developer thing though, not necessarily because of the hardware.

    There were plenty of games that fitted the portability perfectly well, like patapon, loco roco, dj max, various rpgs and srpgs, half minute hero, echochrome, etc. etc. Even MH makes sense portability wise seeing how japan plays their games.

    And the DS touchscreen was met with skepticism back in the day too so who knows how people will react to the back touchscreen? At least they have touchscreen now.

    So, yeah. Basically, wait and see.

    edit: also, the 3DS does not get a free pass on this either.

    From what I've seen of the RE 3DS games they look like they would benefit more from being on a console with two analog sticks.

    Also MGS3DS.

    SSF4.

    DOA.

    The 3D itself still looks like it won't be a huge benefit for gameplay and something I'll most likely turn off for improved performance and battery life.

    Back 1=1 touchscreen, i.e. "holy shit, you can use touchscreen commands without blocking your view".

    Nintendo comes up with a gimick and it's amazing?
    Sony comes up with a gimick and it's shit? o.O
    They're all gimicks. It just depends on how they're used.
