Well, I do see what you mean about the original DS being lackluster (or lacklustre).
Terribly sorry for exploding in a swirling torrent of fanboyish qualities.

From a neutral point of view, i don't see how the NGP will fare well in the handheld market. Honestly, it looks like a PSP reshaped with a few new gimmicks. There's nothing really new or exciting aside from the touch screen on the back which may throw in a new element and the enhanced graphics. But touch screens? That's a regular. 3G? You got a phone for that.
Huge size? What about fitting it in your pocket? "Streetpass"? (or whatever you call it) Awesome. Blu-ray? Hey, that's neat. No backwards compatibility? That's an upsetter. PS3 graphics? Cool! Does it look appealing? Well, if you're the diehard Sony fanboy type, then its a definate yes. Otherwise, not certain...

3DS from a neutral view:

A new handheld with 3D capabilities and a circle pad with a handheld graphical makeover. Pre-installed with cool apps and gimmicks including 3D photo taking capabilities. Has backwards capatibility with the DS and has an extendedable stylus. Looks just like another DS though...with low battery time.

3D and touch screen? Well, the touch screen was expected but the 3D screen will be awesome. Built-in gyroscrope and motion sensor? Cool!
Virtual Console Ware and E-shop? That'll be useful. 3D slider? I'll be making good use of that.
D-pad, ABYX buttons, and circle pad? Hey that kinda looks like the DS...somewhat.
3D photos? Nice.
Streetpass? FTW.
Bigger top screen? Hey, that looks...kinda off. But whatever.
Software Lineup? Eh, wish it had a AAA title at/near launch. Battery Time? Guess i'll be charging it a lot. Is it appealing? Well yeah, they make it look good, but looks too much like a regular old DS. Buy it if you're looking for something that'll sastisfy just enough.

Those are my neutral opinions, though i pick Nintendo over Sony. You don't have to agree with me.

My Pikmin are ready.

I don't know about you but I think the 3DS is a reshaped DS if you ask me.

And how do you give credit to a system for having buttons?

That's what i mean by the 3DS looking a bit like the regular DS; and buttons are the feel and controls of the system so...yeah. But looking at the older 3DS prototypes, the 3DS looked even more like a DS.

Neutral towards nintendo and Sony? Your post says otherwise

Sure this upcoming generation looks similar to the last one, but then again the Game Boy line didn't change that much either

Yeah, that's not neutral. For one, you've made factual mistakes about the NGP that shows that you clearly haven't paid much attention to it.

The NGP does not support Blu Ray - it's not that big. The NGP is backwards compatible with everything the PSP can access on the PlayStation Network - that includes Comics, Movies, PSP games, minis and PSOne classics.

Yeah, StreetPass sounds useless.

That's designed with the Japanese market in mind, where you can and do pass a constant stream of people carrying gaming consoles around.

As such, in Japan it WOULD kinda be cool to get home at night to find a bunch of businessmen, schoolgirls and cosplay nutters' Miis/ racing ghost data sitting on your 3DS.

@Tylr - there's no such thing as neutral opinions or a neutral point of view....I hope you realize that. If you have a point of view in the first place, it's biased. It's also clear as day that your tone completely shifts the second you mention the 3DS.

I think you mean "couldn't" care less. Ie. it is impossible for you to care less than you do about the feature.

Back on topic, both systems will have great games. And the NGP will be better for FPS. The rear touch panel is bloody daft though.

I heard it's SUPPOSED to be "I could care less" not couldn't. Because if you couldn't care less, then... Well, you just can't do what you WANT to do and it is CARE less...

This is a good point - Slappy, are you going to Japan soon

Bags are packed, and flying out in the morning! Now where is my 3DS?

In Japan there is a huge market for Streetpass as Waltz stated. Another thing is that with NGP and its 3G capabilities, it's not aimed at America. Our 3G services are actually quite weak for online gaming as we are primarily WiFi centered. In Japan and other Asian countries 3G is the norm, and that is where Sony will primarily focus on 3G connectivity. Just mean a cheaper NGP for me!

It would also work well in other Asian cities too. Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul in particular. I can see it doing well in the more pedestrianised European cities too.

Yep, because Japan is only populated by businessmen, schoolgirls and cosplayers. No wonder its population growth is slowing!

I agree that there are some other cities outside of Japan where Streetpass will work well... Just not sure Nintendo developed it with those places in mind. Japanese games companies traditionally don't care about other Asian markets, rife with piracy as they are (Seoul aside, potentially), and European cities such as Paris would be just a lucky bonus for Nintendo.

I guess the point I'm making is, when Nintendo developed the 3DS, I'm fairly certain that feature is for Tokyo first, and then if others in the world benefit, so much the better.

And if there were other types of people that are in japan, I failed to notice when I was there

There is no way im going to get a totally 3d machine. I still think it can do damage to the eyes later down the line. This whole 3d thing to me im just not interested in.

Im gonna play it safe with the sony handheld.

Yep, that accounts for complete list of all 4 types of people in Japan.
