I certainly wouldn't want to trade places with Sony right now. I really hope they don't take a turn being the "stinker conference" this year, because they've been through enough recently. It actually might be time for all 3 to do at least a good job again this year, if we go by past patterns.

I can't even imagine what they can do to capture my interest. We know their entire 2011 schedule (for the PS3) already.

NGP is their only hope.

I think its like 5-10 minutes talk about the ps3, and then just pure focus on the NGP.

I aspect some major blowouts on this department, specially from 3th party developers.

I hope we hear something more about:
- emulation
- psp titles that didn't hitted digital version like kingdom hearts
- suite : how its going to be applied and when its available
- the differences between 3g and wifi model, specially the contract and price is interesting + extra features it brings from day 1 when it gets released
- ngp 3th party blowout, what games are going to hit the NGP. ( hopefully its a great mix between core and casual )
- maxed graphical demo's to see whats the ngp is capable off, closed environments but also big open environments.
- games that make unique use of the ngp's features / input or other ways
- big online games such as cod or open environment games, and how the online department is managed
- mmo's, if there is anything going to happen on this platform. Specially with suite its possible to crossplatform with ios with this in the future on top of it. ( hell its already possible and available )
- multi ports, how is the NGP considered by the west as main console version or as upscaled 3DS/IOS version spinoff version.
- social department, how is it going to connect with social solutions like live area department. and how are we going to be able to interact with other persons. Is there voice chat / videochat whatever els. Internet sites like facebook etc how are they going to be involved with the NGP.
- what is the battery life time
- what is the exact hardware and mhz it runs on, camera's specifications, ram/v-ram etc
- some more info about the sticks
- some ps3 titles that got ported towards the NGP.
- is there going to be crossplay in future titles with ps3 on major titles or not.
- first party titles, which one to aspect in launch window and which one to aspect later on a later date ( 3th party also )
- Release date, when can we aspect to buy one, when is the 3G version available etc.
- price whats the 3G going to cost, what the normal version is going to cost. what the software going to cost on every platform
- what games are going to be playable on the NGP through online solution of PSN.
- how future proof is the NGP on hardware in general, are there major flaws that make a revision happen fast, and is this going to be a major improvement which is going to be necessary for solid gaming on the device.
- AR and other solutions, how advanced is it. And are there games upcoming that use it
- headtracking aka 3D, are they going to apply it in games like broken. where you need to move the handheld to generate 3D screens.
- OS itself, whats possible with it
- playback solutions, and audio solution
- TV-out or a stream chip ( as they got rights on it, it could be used )
- what media format are they going to use for the NGP


Enough questions, hope they can answer some of it with the presentation.

Their big announcement at e3 will be:
"Starting from 12am tonight...
PSN will be BACK online!"

-That might even win them the show.

This is the most logical conclusion. The forum this is in is not a Nintendo Forum, but rather an E3 2011 forum. These are the Nintendo 3DS Forums, but this is a forum outside of The Lounge not dedicated solely to Nintendo or the 3DS.

Or it could have good battery life and be, like, super expensive.

Lol, quite a few Hammer Nintendo fanboys in here, not wanting to acknowledge that some users here care about Sony.

I just want Metal Gear Solid HD Collection announced.

I don't think it's this few, but it will not be much.
The PSP has aproximately the same battery life of the 3DS, and the new one is much more powerful. And if they do give it a good battery life, it will cost A LOT (unless they start selling at a loss)

The 30 minutes was hyperbole, but honestly the physical limits of this thing means they can only fit a battery of a certain size. I doubt jacking up the price can improve it significantly.

I don't see Sony restoring compatibility now that the HD collections are selling so well, in addition to reasons they've already stated.

I can't see that, since the HD Collections are selling like hotcakes, I could see the PS2 titles getting a PSN release though.

This is why portable gaming is in a different league then the home consoles, Sony...we don't need to play Uncharted NGP with PS3 graphics when we can play Uncharted 3 on PS3 with HD graphics on a much bigger screen =D

This is of course if the battery life sucks, which it most likely will. If, somehow they made a revolutionary break in technology and the NGP could live as long as the PSP or longer, I'm all for Uncharted NGP. I just hope Sony knows when it's going to far...

Regardless, I hope for NGP spec specifics and a price from $299-$349.99. $399.99 is pushing it, and I don't think many would buy beyond that price. Also want some more details on The Last Gaurdian, as that's why I got a PS3 to begin with. Other then that...we already know Sony's ball game, and it's not like The Move is going to get better...it all rests on the NGP, it would seem.

Oh yeah! I remember this story. The common response I heard was "I already own an external device that can play PS2 games. It's called a PS2."

Anyway, the better visuals on these HD packages eliminates any practicality to this idea.

^ This

If we can play the same game in PS3, I don't think I am gonna buy NGP. I would probably end up with 3DS that I already owned + Wii 2, not because I favour Nintendo but really, what's the purpose of playing the same game in NGP with a smaller screen + you have to recharge the battery?

I really hope they can make different games for the NGP that are only for NGP and not PS3. Maybe make some original games for NGP would be great not another port.

The battery life would probably sucks, but if Sony decided to upgrade the battery, then the cost might be a bit expensive. We have seen the battery life of 3DS, the 3DS battery is not good enough at least not for me.

Imagine if PSN isn't up before their E3 conference (Which it will be). What would they say? But, even when it is up, it'd still be kind of awkward, do you think they'll mention it at all?

They're a Sony.
They'll only mention it if that "comedian" hack is brought on stage.

So you dont like portable gaming, as the 3DS is doing exact the same. you did realized that right?

With that logic, you could easily state console games > handheld games.

Uncharted on the NGP is a new uncharted in the series. Or should all mario and zelda and other nintendo ip's all switch towards there home consoles?

This doesn't make sense.

Why is there no way?
You do realize that mobile components are build around energy efficiency right?

Faster hardware is always build around the same energy level. Lowering nm's and new generation chips gives them huge leaps every generation.

From what i readed the PSP used about 2,4w on power.
the cpu and gpu clocked with 28nm on ~1ghz ~200mhz will hit around 1,6w and 2w with 40nm+ soc solution. there is no UMD to feed and the Oled screen isn't that demanding on energy in general.

The device is large enough to place out 2 battery packs of 1400mah. those battery packs cost about 10 bucks ( high quality stuff for sony maximum for both ).

The whole multi cored solution makes it even more heat efficient + better performance on a lower energy demanding solution.

battery life time is going to be totally controllable by what sony wants. they can downclock it to provide even more hours or upclock it to get better performance.

First off, I never once mentioned the 3DS, but if you need to know, I have said this about the 3DS too, on this very site in fact. Don't pull stuff out of no where, I never said I thought the 3DS was different. People these days, always saying random crap...

And I make perfect sense, this is a relatively popular subject among portables, has been since the PSP. Why in the world would we want to play an Uncharted with PS3 graphics on the NGP when we could do the same thing on an actual PS3, with HD graphics, a bigger screen and no worries about battery life? My logic doesn't indicate that console games>portable games. It indicates that portable games are starting to = console games. Do you remember the good old days of the GBC and GBA, where there was a fine line between what was handheld and what was a console? They were different, but now portables are becoming mini-consoles, which is what I was clearly saying.

Seriously, you should try understand better before you reply to people. What you said had no relavence to my post at all.

They were different, but now portables are becoming mini-consoles, which is what I was clearly saying.

Seriously, you should try understand better before you reply to people. What you said had no relavence to my post at all.
your logic doesn't make sense. Like i already stated before. I just dragged a example towards it.

Explain to me, why " in your vision" is a gb/gba a more "portable game machine" then a device like 3DS or NGP?

couldn't you already play gameboy games on a console? wouldn't those games fit better on a console? wouldn't pokemon for example in the "good old days" be condidered a console like experience?. And what about mario?

Or are you stuck with the idea ( which many people have ) that a portable needs to be generations behind consoles in order to be seen as portable as it somehow only provides incredible crippled visual solutions which makes the game difference themselfs?

But isn't a portable uncharted on a portable device. A portable experience? just as a mario was on the gba and gb? It only isn't crippled to the bone next towards current console solutions?

I somehow cant seem to understand your logic behind your conclusions.

What in your eyes are examples of portable games then? Or do you simple mean iphone games or ds simple mini flash games are portable games? and anything that tries to go jump a level beyond it is automatically a console experience?

explain.

Portable games are actually console experiences on the go.

For example, i rather have a uncharted on a NGP or a game like zelda OOT on the 3DS. As i'm not interested in buying inferior console hardware from company's while i have a pc which is far more capable next to me. I do like handheld devices as i cant take my PC with me. I always found handhelds getting awful limited by crippled versions through hardware limitations. now that the line blurry's. I'm happy to be able to play "your so called console like games" example uncharted. on the device without having to buy a nonsense device like a PS3 next to it.

Therefor a handheld with those "console like experiences on top of it" is very welcome here. As i'm not a tiny bit interested in buying a ps3, and i'm not forced into buying a second device for nothing.

Because this board isn't about just the 3DS. Same with the Lounge and the Wii 2 boards.

Thanks for the useless comment that didn't add anything though.

Normally I'd agree with you j_pheonix but to me a console reveal trumps a handheld reveal any day.

NGP <3 Hopefully a good price on the 3G version aswell as a great launch line up. Other than that, the PS3 already got so much going for it.

Though I would want an upgrade to the XMB and cross chat+custom music playable on all games.

Nintendo has to cut the 3DS price if they want to stay relevant. Tomorrow will be very interesting.

no they dont that silly

you tell me - what sells more :

mario kart or mod nation?

mario or little big planet?

zelda or uncharted?


it is GREAT that vita has a somewhat reasonable price, that means competition by sony for the first time in a looooong time - we all win for that

but you are way overreacting

Added after 2 minutes:

in fact storm i bet you $10 of eshop points right now 3ds outsells vita this holiday

put money where your mouth is? lets have some fun

Factors for this year we don't know about:

- NGP launch date
- NGP software launch lineup
- NGP available hardware
- 3DS software lineup
- 3DS price

All of these need to be determined before I'd make any conjectures on the holiday season. If the 3DS doesn't have a price drop anytime soon and we assume all other things as being equal, I'd put NGP sales over 3DS. Too many variables to call this holiday right now though.

price of 3ds not likely to be dropped - i doubt even a bundle

nintendo will go full bore this holiday and react then - no reason for them to fear vita and its very familiar lineup

anyway, i will talk to you about it tomorrow

Wow! 249 dollars!

Honestly, that excites me more than anything else. I might honestly get it at that price. Maybe not at launch day, but in a year or two? Almost undoubtedly. It's funny, really, that Sony basically had the same portable hype that Nintendo had, and they did it mostly the same way: announce a portable version of almost every game series they own. It'll be interesting to see if how well reality holds up to the hype.

Sony. We've had our difficult times before. You've said I have no self-respect, you've called one of my favorite handhelds a babysitting tool, and your consoles are more overpriced than bars of gold hand-delivered by the queen of England. But when you do something like price the Vita at 249.99 I can't help but forgive and forget all that. Come here, baby. *huggles Sony*

I don't know if I'll be able to afford another handheld along with its games. That's just sad...
I envy the PSVita a little, so I really want a decent Nintendo conference today.
