NGP “dead on arrival” claims developer, as Nintendo CEO cautions against rise of smartphone gaming

NGP “dead on arrival” claims developer, as Nintendo CEO cautions against rise of smartphone gaming

Strong words and arguments over the Sony NGP, Nintendo 3DS and the rise of smartphone gaming these past few days, amid disagreements over the direction in which the games industry is moving. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata led the charge, taking to the GDC 2011 stage and decrying smartphone games as not only lower quality but threatening "the high value of software." Meanwhile, Sony has said that the NGP is "not going to run at 2 GHz because the battery would last five minutes... and it would probably set fire to your pants" but that it sits "halfway" between the original PSP and the PS3, a chase for speed and hardware that some game developers predict will see it "dead on arrival."

I’ll Be First In Line for the Sony NGP, Not the Nintendo 3DS

My love for video games is unconditional. I’m just as much a fan of the Nintendo Entertainment System as I am a fan of the PlayStation 3. I love the PSP as much as I love my old GameBoy. And I’m just as willing to pick up my Nintendo DS as the Sega Dreamcast. Simply put, I’m a gamer to the core.

But I just don’t think I’ll be waiting in line for the Nintendo 3DS when it launches in the United States on March 27.

The XPERIA Play’s Gaming Appeal Is Practically Non-Existent

Apple’s iPhone has done quite a bit to change the mobile market.

But one of the most significant changes the iPhone initiated was the growth of gaming on smartphones.

Sony PlayStation 4 Still Five Years Away?

Sony PlayStation 4 Still Five Years Away?

The Sony PlayStation 3 has been around for awhile now. In tech years, it could be like a hundred years old. But when it came out in 2006 the machine was meant to be so advanced that it would have a lifecycle of ten years versus six years like its predecessors the PS2 and PS1. But now reaching its halfway point, could Sony ponder pushing forth a PS4 sooner than later? Most signs confirm a negative.

If you can be sure of anything, it's that Sony will be pushing the NGP with its own particular brand of "wacky" trailers and adverts ahead of the next-generation console's release. The first example has arrived, and the poor NGP itself is little to be found; instead there's plenty of "inspiring" messages like "play life" and the suggestion that NGP gamers will be terribly social.
