  1. Meh.. a lot of whining about prices again.  I'm not sure what you people were expecting.  Why should games be cheaper just because they are on a portable system?  Considering the power of the PSP, its portable games are going to have development cost similar to console games.  So the price should be no suprise.  And I'm looking at the game prices and see that most are $40 USD with a few being $50.  Then I look over at DS games and see that most games are also $40 USD.  So WTF?  Take a look back at the GBA where many of the best games were games that came out 10 - 20 YEARS ago on the NES and SNES and cost $20-30 USD.  So which is really a bigger rip off?  Many of you are just biased to the point of ignorance.

    That's why you get something called a flashcard.


    Most of the DS/GBA prices are incurred through the expensive cartridge format. Even still, I would never buy a GBA game so I flash that sheit. I'm waiting for a PSP+R disc or something like that or maybe a DS flashcard.


    I think portable games should be less expensive because of the development teams aren't as lucrative as the console counterparts.


    But with the PSP, the games aren't mere portable versions but rather near perfect ports of the console version. That's why I think PSP will lose. Nintendo has made a portable system to appeal to those who have a few minutes here and there to play and not squat down indulging in "console" handheld games.


    And finally, why is 40-50 dollars such a big deal? Well, what would you rather spend the cash on? For me personally, if it had down to putting cash I would get the console version, same thing with DVD's, if I ever wanted to buy a DVD movie, no way in hell I'll get a shiity UMD.


    With the new movies that will support HD/Blu Ray format...lol who's going to pay for EXTREME crap versions of UMD with the lack of space.

  2. I was really thinking that PSP will pwn the ds but I'm not too sure now that I've seen the games and unit prices. Like, if I buy NFL street for ps2, what will incline me to spend the exact same amount in cash for the portable version?


    What I'm trying to say is that the PSP will most likely appeal to people who already have a ps2, so the market for them won't grow a huge margin but rather split up the market share for playstation games.


    Have you actually seen some of the software prices? 50-60 bucks? I'm guessing the price is inflated because they are using development costs that rival the ps2 counterparts, which means high prices for the consumer. With the GBA, sure, their were a lot of crappy games but failure in one or two software pieces won't cause much of a dent because of the low cost of making the games. With the psp, 1 or 2 failures could waste millions of dollars in revenue and lose lack of support.


    That's my theory basically. PSP will die because of piraters or lack of consumer interest and then nintendo will capitalize. It may happen...it may not, but that's what I think.

  3. I'll get a PSP and DS when they lower the price below $100 Canadian Dollars, or $130 if there is a efficient way to pirate games ie. DS flash card or psp rewritable UMD. That said, it will be a long time since I'll get either of the two but right now it seems kind of stupid for DS, 1. Not having enough quality games, and PSP having software prices that match the ps2 counterpart's price tag.


    I'd never buy a game over $50, especially for a handheld game that I could easily get for the ps2 and play in the comfort of my home...with friends too.

  4. neomaster, I have a question for you. what sytems do you emulate? this is an emulation site. we are all here becouse we like emulation and old systems. but you talk so much crap about every non sony system I'm just wondering what you actually like.

    Actually, I don't only like sony. The consoles, handhelds and arcade I enjoy are NES, SNES, Genesis, NeoGeo, CPS2, GBC/GBA, N64, Dreamcast and NeoGeo Pocket.

  5. Yeah, I know what you mean. But lots of those hours were spent backtracking and upgrading my weapons.


    Well, I completed SH2, its quite sad what happens in the end and a little confusing. I spend about 33 hours playing the two disc game and it was fabulous.


    Now I need to find another game that's worthy of completing...

  6. why would u defile the atari with a damn ps2....

    Why would you defile a PS2 with an Atari? Ass.

    Atari > PS2.


    Actually, anything made by Atari beats Sony, because their sheit lasts longer. And umm, Jackass >_> :P

    Cow dung breath. Obviously you can't tell a good software/hardware from your ass.


    If Atari still had it's way, bob from down the street could publish games for that system and would charge you 70 bucks.

  7. Fire Emblem was so...eh...forced.


    I didn't like the gba version because it held your hand through the whole thing telling you what to do. GC version looks like something to check out but its not like im going to wet my pants over this one.
