If I recall, the DSi has more powerful hardware, so that would probably fix that issue. If you didn't want to wait for the 3DS, that is.

It's been said (and pretty obvious) that DS games do not, and cannot take advantage of the DSi's extra RAM and processor power. They would have to be DSi games (DSiware) or DSi enhanced games (Sonic Classic Collection) to be improved on.

The original DS came out 6 years ago. It's time to update. The 3D is just a bonus, and I hope it isn't a mandatory requirement for 3rd party developers.
Well developers kit seems to say the 3DS will have about Gamecube's capabilities. Though this could be a rumor, forgot if the source was reliable or not.

Sony and other 3D tv manufacturers could be in trouble if the technology used in the 3DS proves to be decent for TV size adoptation and more accepted by the public rather than screens relying on shutter glasses. Of course sony want to see alternative technology to fail, because of their investment in probably the wrong technology. But unlike the Wii and PS3, the technology can damage whole range of sony products.

Makes me wonder what the next PSP is gonna be like.
Probably will also be announced this E3 to counter Nintendo.
And I'm gonna bet it has 3D and touch screen.

Wrong. Sony still supported the PS2 even when the PS3 was out. Actually, they may still be supporting it right now. I'm not sure.

Back in the day, Sega was supporting its Mega Drive/Genesis along with its Master System and its Game Gear.

You talk as if porting home console games to the DS is what makes it great. That's not the case. There are many original games as well.

That DQIV DS is a PSX port doesn't mean anything. The DS is more powerful than a PSX both in processing power and graphical capabilities. The 'problem' is that with the two screens you can display a lot of NPCs at once, which taxes it. The PSX showed less NPCs on the screen at any time.

The PSP Go is a new model of the PSP without a UMD drive. It plays the same games.

I think tilting and turning technology is nothing special any more, most phones have it too now :P

1. Yeah I know it is an exaggeration the only similarities is that they are souless money making machines. (IT PRINTS MONEY!)

And they hold a monopoly over their respective industries.

2. I do not know how playing a portable console on the bus makes you look like a dork (what other things are there to do to keep you entertained?). But looking like a dork is one thing, screaming and flailing about to complete a level just makes you look retarded.

Im going to wait until a prototype comes out or something like that before I set any of my judgements in stone...

However I hope that 3rd party developers dont think that they HAVE to use the 3D and stuff like that in every game just like how they uncomfortably forced the touch screen into a lot of games.

Still like the DS though just dont like a majority of the games because it seems like a lot of video games companies want to ride Nintendo's money horse by making games for it. But their system doesnt intergrate all that well with the console and the controls and game feel weird.

Sony said that the PSP was on a 10 (or was it 8?) year plan. And they don't plan on releasing another handheld until then. So there's still a lot of time before we see another PSP, unless of course they want their nuts crushed again

I just recently started to warm up to my PSP.

Gundam vs Gundam Next, Crisis Core, PS1 games....and soon Birth By Sleep. Then all of a sudden Nintendo drops this FUCKING bomb.

Nintendo doesn't have even close of a monopoly on the video game industry.

It's like that in my country. Seeing a teenager or grown-up play a portable console on the bus is a rare sight. People find it weird. Even more if it's a Nintendo portable console, because they always associate it with Pokémon.

Here in Seattle, I tend to take the Bus more than driving, and I see all sorts of people playing with their DS or PSP, ranging from little kids to teenagers to men in suits.

In Singapore, men and women of all ages carry handhelds on public transport, if not Iphones.

Even in peak hours, you can see people watching anime on their PSP or Iphone and the people packed around him would be watching from the side. Not just men, I've seen office ladies standing with handbag tucked under the arm, playing Dynasty Warriors, watching Bleach, Japanese game shows, Hollywood movies etc.

When a new game is released, you can see everyone playing the same game, Crisis Core, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Dissidia etc.
