    What Can Sony Learn From 3DS Launch?

    http://psp.ign.com/articles/115/1157943p1.html

    An IGN article talking about how Sony can improve on the launch the 3DS had.

    Most of the statements are pretty much common sense, or what you would want in the first place.

    Basically it said:
    1)Needs a must have "killer ap" game.
    2)Make an event out of it
    3)Battery life
    4)Show off the features at launch with
    5)World wide release

    What do you guys think of the 3ds launch, the article, and what you would like Sony to do for a great launch day?

    I think he's spot on. However, you forgot #6) Price point.

    1) A killer app or must have game

    that is probably the most important thing. The reason I'm not getting a 3DS at launch is because most of the games look like rubbish, or arn't enough to justify a purchase.

    Price is the most important and a very good launch game to go with it.

    I can't wait for NGP !!! After seeing the 3DS in action, i want an NGP even more. I personally wasn't impressed with 3DS at all.

    Heh, good luck with better battery life. It's not as if some magical new battery innovation has been made or will be made before NGP's launch that would suddenly increas the battery life considerably (at least one that could be put to use in a consumer product and not have the price be astronomical). The only way to improve it would be to have a bigger batter, which is a big no-no, seeing as people are complainging about the size of NGP even as it is now. Or they could have several batteries (don't iPads have, like, three or four of them?), but that would again raise the problem of size limitations.

    Face it, NGP might have an even worse battery life than 3DS (2-4 hours vs. 3-5), or even in the best case scenario it will probably be about the same, with maybe an extra 1-hour of juice in the optimal situations.

    Yeah, I don't expect them to have improved on battery life at this point. I don't have an illusions of that.

    Price + Advertising. Get those two wrong and it's going to be dead in the water.

    Those are 5 good points. Hopefully Uncharted, Killzone and WipEout are launch titles because that alone will kill the 3Ds launch.
    Also the 3Ds is far too much like the DS to have a significant launch.

    Six - the price has to be good as well; as already mentioned. If they bring out a new Uncharted, Killzone, and Wipeout... wowzers. If they are just ports from already released PS3/PSN games... boooooo

    I don't want "Uncharted" that was on the PS3 though. I can play that on the PS3... I want a game that isn't on the PS3. An NGP Uncharted.

    It's being made by SONY Bend, it's all new F34R.
    WipEout will be a port of the PS3 game which was a remake of the PSP games xD.
    Killzone from the early footage looks all new. Would love another 'isometric' liberations.

    I'll skip on wipeout then, I've had it on two systems now lol. A new "HD" iso Killzone would freakin ROCK. Libs is still my favorite game on the PSP.

    Man, I must be in an entirely different boat because the only way I'd want a handheld is if none of the games, on it, were out on a home console. Get my drift?

    Uncharted NGP does not excite me. I guess others, who do a lot of traveling, might like that.

    A good game worth playing is a good game worth playing, no matter the platform. While yes, there are certain things that should be taken into account when developing a handheld iteration, I don't see why having a portable Uncharted (especially now that there are two analog sticks) is a bad thing.

    Also the 3Ds is far too much like the DS to have a significant launch.
    The hell it is.

    WipEout will be a port of the PS3 game which was a remake of the PSP games
    Has this been confirmed somewhere or do you just base it on the fact that they showed Wipeoud HD running on NGP as a kind of tech demo of what it's capable of?

    Uncharted must be a launch game for the PSP2 to really sell well at launch. And full PS Network support at launch with trophy support. The 3DS does not even have all the features available yet.
