psst... hey Sony, to beat the Ninty 3DS...

tl;dr: just release the PSP2 at $199 and you win.

Is that simple.

--

Idc bout anything else, I already heard everything by the comment "PSP2 has PS3 graphics" ok thats good and all, but games will be pretty much in par with the N3DS and no amount of graphics will save the PSP2 vs the N3DS in sales... except the price.

N3DS is tagged at $250... thats pretty much a PS3, so while it is considered a good entry level price tag for new technology, what I have seen is the same BS of 3D bloat-ware games with the words 3-D next to them. Each time I see a game (or movie) with the 3D words in the title makes me wanna puke my breakfast.

Please. Stop. It.

Keep 3D as a label tag on the game or on the movie to let the user know, but don't embed it in the title because it proves to me that w/e im going to see lacks originality. You might feel different about this from me but it is my perspective.

Pilotwings Resort
nintendogs + cats
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
Madden NFL Football
The Sims 3
Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
Ridge Racer 3D
Dual Pen Sports
Super Monkey Ball 3D
Thor: God of Thunder
CRUSH 3D
BUST-A-MOVE UNIVERSE
Samurai Warriors Chronicles
Dead or Alive Dimensions
Asphalt 3D
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D
Rayman 3D
Rabbids Travel in Time

Sony, if you release the PSP2 at a $300 price tag = Fail
$250 = Nice try, but 3DS will beat you once again
$199 = might have a good chance on winning this upcoming round.

Oh yea, you can release the specs info + images anytime you want, people will be amazed I bet, but in the end it comes to how you can reach your targeted audience and Nintendo has them by the balls. So apart from the insane graphics that challenges Infinity Blade on the iPhone/iPad and possible 3D capabilities with accelometer/gyroscope bs, what will you offer to convert the 200 million DS players to the PSP2?   read

Xiii-2 = F No. Versus Mmmmay be.




Why in the world would I want to play the worst character lineup in FF history again? (Hope or Snow anyone?) It makes me feel not bad nor sorry for the mess up they did with the highly anticipated FF14 MMO because I think S-E is now finally reaching that level were its leaving a sour taste on peoples mouth each time they mention FF.

Meaning, stop fcuking the series to shit (is it too late already?) and make NEW IP. How SQUARESOFT used to do it. FF was a rare memorable gaming lineage that came only once a year+. Not 10 different titles every 6 months... sheesh... So thats it for Xiii-2

After watching the Versus video I started liking the style...

[embed]191948:35491[/embed]

Now of course... lesson be learned, pretty graphics don't make a good game, and ever since the acquisition between Square-Enix, it has never been more proven than now. So while the game looks beautiful with a dark style and all, im not going to hold my breath until the game is released in Japan (I think they get it first) and hear their reviews.

I honestly wished that Square-Enix would talk to Hinorobu and re-hire him back somehow, Merge with his company, Square-Enix-Mystwalker, I don't care but bring the old man back because its like making Mario Brother games without Shigeru Miyamoto.

Also, stop making so goddamnmany FF games. It's becoming a RECK-FEST.   read

oh my, I got Dtoid on my GT5 emails :D



Well would you look at that... Dtoid is more viral than my last STD. I haven't gotten GT5 yet, waiting for the big fat red guy to bring me something that might make me jump off my feet. Either way nice to see Dtoid everywhere I go :)

Ok so this is not exactly a game question...

I am gonna share a little info with yall since this is the best community I ever been to share any type of topics, Well, its about a girl. There's this girl that ive known for the past 8 years, since she was 14, (no im not a pedophile, but she was even super hot at that age), I got to know her through her brother which was a very good friend of mine until last year or so.

Well trying my best to keep this short, shes hot, cool, a model, can sing beautifully, natural red head argentinian with cute freckles... and loves video games... You can tell that I liked her since she was 14 but obviously I respected the age crap and her brother so I didnt do shit.

Years passed and she finally hit the 18 safe mark, but then One of my best friend actually fall openly in love with her and well I became the nice guy to support him on getting her, but unfortunately he lost and she felled in love with another strong gay guy who wasn't to sure of being straight or gay. She married him at the age of 20, had a kid, divorced at 22. Since then she doesn't really have any family to live with, so she inclined with the very first guy she saw at the moment and moved with him b4 she even finished the divorce. So I lost my chance before it opened up.

Now this brings us to today...

She is not really going anywhere with this guy but hes not a bad guy from what she tells me. She has the casual fights here and there but she is not making anything out of her life living with him. Now here is where I come to you guys for help. I really like her, me and her get super great along with each other and I don't mind helping her raise her kid. No one is perfect and everyone could use a little hand. I can offer her a good house, food, help her with her modeling / photography career, I have the tools to do so and help her study, she can move in with me i'd take perfect care of her. I confesed to her that I like her and im willing to do anything in my power to making her happy whether she lives with me or not. And she told me that if I would have told her earlier she most def would have come with me without giving it any thought.

But here is the bad part...

I'm not the type that would steal a girl from another guy. That's just not me and I would like for her to be happy, so if she is happy with this guy then that would make me happy. But she now tells me she has her fights and things don't really progress much. We talk n txt to each other all the time and we have very open communication, which she told me she would really like to live with me right now, but she can't leave her current bf just like that, its not her style, he's not a bad guy and doesn't deserve getting dumped like that. Which brings me to my question:

What should I do?

Should I stay playing the nice guy role, see & wait to see if she comes to herself and dumps him to come with me? Or should I try and convince her to change her mind? Honestly my mind right now is split and thinks both ways... this shit is not easy and I know it might sound childish & yes there are tons of fish in the sea but man let me tell you, miami is full of ROTTEN fish; I don't go for any girl that just drops in the way, I want the one who makes me happy and that I can return the favor. So wondering what to do now...   read

hey guys... ffxiv is not really growing on me :(

and that makes me a really really REALLY sadpanda...

[embed]185069:33600[/embed]

Well first I couldn't even get my damn first name in the game... Crunsh, Crunshii, Crunshi, Crunshiii were all taken. Then I had to also pick a Surname and THAT also couldnt be identical to other players... ugh... So that was a mission, I couldn't select my name in the server that I wanted (mysidia) so I had to actually go to another server, Palamecia.

So finally after all the giberish of making the character and finally starting, I went to the controls config and noticed that I cant set the controls how I really wanted. I thought someone from the ff forums told me that it would be fixed for retail version, but no, actually it got worse.

So w/e, I went to start grinding, may be this would make me feel better and bring the nostalgia back but as of right now I guess it is a bit premature to give my opinion because I am not really feeling the controls so thus affecting the way how I play.

The sad thing of all of this is that I am not really falling in love for 14... which is bad. I was expecting that 14 would bring back my addiction but instead has left me like this...

FinalFantasy 14 DTOIDERS!!! May I have your attention PLZ!



I just wanted to announce that a bunch of old friends of mine (cool people, no drama) will be joining the Mysidia server when the game launches next Tuesday.

I hope that Dtoid members stick together as playing with cool people always helps on the long hard road ahead of grinding to end game.

Hope to see you guys there!

Ganjookie, hope you get a job soon and re-order the game!   read

Hey is there any SC2 FNF @ Dtoid!?!?!



I looked at the forums but alas I am a forum newb ; ; Ive been playing SC2 non-stop each night till my eyes get blurry and I can't see my units anymore. It is totally addictive and I was wondering if there is a Destructoid Starcraft 2 list of members where yall play together? If there is please pin point me where I can add my name to the list. If there isn't, then this blog would serve its purpose for those SC2 Dtoid players.



actually I wouldnt just play FNF, I would play every night!   read

Sony + Android + Gaming = Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin!!!

People get ready to ditch your iPhone's and anything else. True mobile gaming seems to be arriving!

Yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!! I don't remember what blog I posted but I think it was in one of my own written blogs I mentioned and said "Hmmmmm if Sony did the hardware and it ranned Android and would play games wouldnt that be the most epic combination ever? Well the news just came in and it looks like it is starting, but on the mobile market, Superb.





News sources have come from Engadget throughout Gizmodo & kotaku that a new phone is being made ala PSP Go that will be running Android 3.0 and being able to play PSP/PSX games. I kinda have this already on my HTC Evo with the PSX4Droid app that plays all games from sega master through the Nintendo and playstation 1 library. But the PSX emulator runs a bit slow on the frame rates.

In either case, this is the big major difference between todays smart phones and this one coming out. It HAS EFKING PHYSICAL BUTTONS AND A D PAD!!!

YES! This is something NO iphone or any other smart phone been able to do successfully. Yea you can play SF4 on your iPhone, but CAN you really play it? nope you cant, touching a screen and pretending to having buttons sucks major balls. Until now, or at least, until this baby is released. I just hope that Sprint is able to carry it ; ; I am willing to trade my Evo for it...

"The device is described as cross between the Samsung Captivate and the PSP Go -- in other words, it's a landscape slider with game controls in place of the typical QWERTY keyboard. The D-pad is here, but instead of the small joystick, the device will have what was described as a "long touch pad" for analog controls, along with standard PSP buttons and shoulder buttons. The phone has a large display, described as being between 3.7 and 4.1 inches with WVGA or better resolution, a 5 megapixel camera that we're told might not be final, and it'll likely have a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU on board. The phone is mostly black with some silver highlights, and the gamepad area is white / silver in color. Apparently it's currently branded as a Xperia device, but it looks like it will carry PlayStation branding as well. Those who've seen the phone say it looks "pretty damn sexy."

well I hope it doesnt end up like these patent pictures done by sony... we all prefer landscape playing than up/down.



On the software side, it looks like the device will be running Gingerbread (Android 3.0) with a phone-specific skin, and there will be a new area of the Android Market specifically for the games. That content will be initially accessible only by the halo device, but from the sounds of things, these titles might be made available to other Android phones if their specs and button layouts meet requirements. Games will be graphically in the range of PSX or PSP games, meaning true 3D gaming is headed to Android. Titles currently being shown off seem to be focused around some older PSX as well as new PSP offerings, with God of War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and LittleBigPlanet possibly on tap, and future plans for titles which incorporate augmented reality features.

I just hope they dont follow the monstrosity of what was the Ngage o.o;



If they keep it nice and sexy with the same powerhouse of games that Android can already play (which is almost all lolz, just missing PS2, Xbox games) with Playstations library then I am sure gamers all over the world will rejoice with a new phone thats better than anything out there for real gaming. Just need a Ninty DS rom and were set! I mean it will have a touch screen and physical buttons, a 4.1" screen sliced in half to show the DS screens lol.

What do you guys think? is this next phone fill of win or what!?
