Sony Nixes 3D For Next PSP

image

Sony has no plans to imitate the Nintendo 3DS and won't be incorporating 3D into the next PSP.

Sony might have been pleased by the 3DS but has no plans to use a glasses-free 3D screen for the PSP's successor. For now, it looks like the company will be focusing on 3D games only for the PlayStation 3.

In an interview with Industry Gamers, Sony Worldwide Studios VP Scott Rohde was asked if the company would add 3D technology into the next PSP and he replied: "No, no plans for that ... We just chose to focus on the big 3D in the home."

This makes sense considering Sony CEO Kaz Hirai bashed the current state of naked-eye 3D technology. Still, maybe it's just the 3DS's amazing lineup, but Nintendo's future darling handheld looks even cooler than expected.

Sony seems to be in danger of falling even further behind in the handheld space and hasn't even done anything with touchscreen technology yet. What will the PSP2 do, when will it be announced, and is there even one in the planning stages?

In regards to these questions, Rhode said: "It's just not something we're announcing right now. It's just as simple as that. It's all I can tell you." A waiting game it is.

Nintendo always seems to be a step ahead of the other guys.

3d is lame anyway. For all systems. Its not that Nintendo is ahead of them because sony already has 3d games so they beat them to the finish line but the 3d is stupid. It hopefully will be a passing fad.

Have you played a 3D game? I hoped it would be a passing fad but play a 3D game on the PS3, its insanity. God I hope 3D TVs become cheaper. Motion control can suck it imo but 3D gaming better be the next step in gaming.

It seems that 3D is becoming the big thing, both in movies and 3D. People will call it silly today but in the the future when EVERYTHING is 3D we will embrace it.

Let's not forget that the 3DS works PERFECTLY. It's impossible to describe without seeing it, a video or picture doesn't do it justice. Good job Nintendo.

Well we agree. Motion Controllers can rot and burn But i like Wii. It can stay lol. The 3d is To expensive and i don't think it would be worthwhile. The reason i don't care for it is because its just going to be another gimmick taking away from the Game designers Job of making a good Game. Soon no games will be longer then 3 hours with a loyal fanbase on its Multiplayer calling everyone Faggot lol.

Lol. I already read that. As i said on the Forum there. It must have been a shitty life if 3ds changed it.

Also who is Warren Spector?

You can't get proper 3D on such a small screen. It will never look adequate. Leave the 3D to cinemas and home-cinemas.

I really hope they'll aim at making the next PSP a beast. Handhelds are weaker, by definition, but they don't have to be 'casual'. nVidia has some cool all-in-one chips coming. People should take advantage of this, and maybe combine two to give it some power.

3D is a fad let it die!

As long as they didnt remove TV out the PSP2 looks a bit better than the XDSX....

He created Deus ex...

You will need to run now, my guitar playing friend...run very fast.

You nay sayers, going "3D is a fad let it die!" I just have one thing to say.

It's a required step for the 4th D to be awakened. And no one will stand between me and that!

... Oh you were talking about entertainment? Yes.... So was I...

Referring to my previous post, 3D seems to be the next big thing. It's the next step to the fancy stuff you see in Science Fiction. I embrace 3D, for at some point it will be everywhere.

It may be crude now, but some day it will be refined.

FOUND IT! I think Jimmy Fallon shares the same opinion I do of 3D games. JIZZ IN MAH PANTS

Linkage, 3D Killzone

um....isn't 4d time. Check out Broken Helix. It used 4d :)

From a narrow minded perspective yes.

But to the open mind it is a demon waiting the doom of mankind by slowly poisoning the waters and manipulating out leaders. Waiting for the perfect moment when mankind is too weak to resist to fully break loose of it's confines and lead us into a glorious age of anarchy and destruction. something more.

Mmmm they are trying to take a an optical tick fad and make it the next big thing.....since for some people all it dose is make them sick I don't see it doing so well, its good for theaters but for a TV thats viewed for more than 4 hours a day...not so much.

Now lets get protected lazes and holographs, even if its no better quality wise than the old red/green/blue 3D its a step in a real vialable and long term direction.... of course that costs to much so what we get is 3D trickery for 5 to 20 years until they can do semi decent projections.......

Still .....3D as it is now is crap and will remain so until they stop trying to use optical illusions but in guess its a stop gap between refining LCD and HiDef to be better and cheaper......

Kind of, but there's just me and Bill.

But he's a psychopath.

Yep the Billbot seems to working out, except for the interface issues, making him insane.

But I have a feeling we should stop derailing now.

As ingenious as that plan is, I don't think it quite worked.

Back to the hookers and blow!

Shame I've heard the 3DS tech works really well.

To be completely honest, I wouldn't be suprised if there are no plans for the next PSP and that Sony plans to depart from the handheld race.

The fact is, their early blunders with the PSP might have cost them a lot more than they anticipated. Since they are only now turning a profit with the PSP itself, they are in no financial position to develop a successor. Yet, if they don't announce one shortly and finish developing it in a reasonable timeframe, the 3DS will have plenty of time to become cheaper as well as develop a large library of games. If that happens, any successor to the PSP would be coming to the market severely handicapped and would probably take even longer to turn a profit (if it would at all).

Overall, with the 3DS, Nintendo is planning to hit Sony where it hurts the most and it plans to do it so strongly that, quite literally, it's "unborn child" (meaning, the successor to the PSP) is going to feel it as well. Considering such an unendurable position, Sony could very well decide to cut their losses and depart from the market, focusing on the console race instead.

Also, for those of you criticising the 3D aspect of the 3DS. Nintendo actually handled the feature rather well this time around by not shoving it down people's throats like they did with the Wii motion sensor controller and the DS stylus. The 3DS includes a slider which allows you to set the degree of 3D you want or to even turn it off completely. That way, it's there for those who want it, while others can focus on other aspects of the handheld.

Overall, regardless if you think 3D is a fad, there is plenty of other things to like about the 3DS.

2 things. 1 i HATE wikipedia. I would rather a homeless person who doesn't own a PC tell me about it then Wikipedia. 2. I HATE valve and anything to do with them....Because of Gabe Newell or whatever his name is. So the 2 links you gave me are breaking my heart lol. Also I can comment on any PC games. I missed out on a few doesn't mean i can't comment on them. Thats like telling someone Because they didn't play Chrono Trigger they can't talk about RPG's.

Another one? What is this! Why can't they do like nintendo and wait a few years for their new console. Christ! There more console on either Xbox or PS3 than exclusive out! Holy.....

Good.

3D's just a fad I'd imagine, something we'll have stopped caring about by next year.

I think the PSP will still do good, 3D or not. But I'm not sure if it will do AS good as Nintendo, you know? :x

The "changed his life" isn't the point. The point is, one of the most influential game designers of all time used to think that 3D was a fad until he saw the 3DS. If his opinion can be so drastically changed, maybe it's time to rethink your utter dismissal.

While I don't know anything about Fallon, or have any judgement whether he's a "cool guy" or a "douchebag", hearing him yell in amazement gave me a little tingle up my spine. I'll have to mooch off my friend's 3DTV (the bastard) to see how Killzone 3 is like in 3D.

And since this topic is obviously related to the 3DS, I'll just summarize what I've always said about the 3DS;

I'm scared, skeptical, and probably jaded. I hate Nintendo yet I love them. I want to fully embrace their handheld but I'm hugely skeptical. I don't play handheld games and my Wii has gone practically untouched for the past 2-3 years I've had it aside from the odd party or two.
