Sony: 3DS is just an updated version of DS

The handheld war talks has just begun as we prepare for the massive E3 showing, and the very first firm to start is none other than Sony. The head of Sony Worldwide Studios has said that apart from the addition of 3D stereoscopic display 3DS is just an update version of DS.


Check out what Sony said about Nintendo 3DS:

When we were designing the NGP we had no idea what Nintendo was going to do, Aside from the 3D stereoscopic display, they seem to be keeping the same theme that they had with the DS – it feels like an update of the DS to me.

So what we’re trying to do, lots of choices that we made were so different from their [Nintendo] choices. It’s kind of hard to compare the two, aside from the fact that both of them are dedicated gaming platforms.

There’s no one clear competitor in terms of what NGP offers. NGP’s going to establish itself as the unique thing that people want to have. NGP cannot be placed against smartphones. You can’t make phone calls on it and it’s too big to fit into your pocket.

Expect to see a response from Nintendo very soon, so stay tuned for more update on this.
