PSP also caught alot of hell from the gaming community because of its high cost when it was first released.

I'm sure the PSP2 will be more than the 3DS.

On the other hand, it's interesting to me that people seem to consider a $250+ pricetag to be a death sentence for a portable while at the same time there are tons of people paying $500+ for iPads.  The PSP2 sounds more like a tablet-class device to me.
Status symbol, the "it" factor  thing associated with Apple right now practically sells the products for them with out them doing anything, even negative publicity  increases the damn products sells.One of my friends actually camped  out for a damn Iphone because his girlfriend just had to have one :D.  Gamers are definitively more cautious about what they spend their money on. That is the main difference. When your handheld almost costs as much as your current generation home console made by the same company well..... I wonder when the slim model with  a cheaper price is coming out. The brand loyalists will gobble it up but alot of the other people will be waiting on the fence for a price cut.

I know Nomura has a wacky sense of fashion, but a feather ass-cape?  Seriously?  That's loopy even for his goofball fashion sensibilities. 
He has to compensate for the lose of belts somewhere.

564  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: January 21, 2011, 01:30:14 PM
It's on the PSP.  Of course it won't sell well in the west.

Might sell well for a PSP game, but that ain't saying much.
PSP user base isn't anywhere near the DS in the US and Europe, but its not exactly small either.
565  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: January 21, 2011, 10:31:17 AM
Those are some truly atrocious sells numbers. I know Japan does not like shooters but...geez. SE is really gonna have to heavily depend on the western  release.

Odd yeah.  Does PE traditionally sell better here?  I've heard a few titles generally do better Stateside than in the homeland.

The First game was very well received in Japan. I don't know about how the western release  sold compared to Japanese but the plot and setting  has a  more western feel then most Japanese games. 3rd birthday just seems like one of those titles that would have been better off released here first, with a later Japanese release, like the way the new Castlevania was done.

Considering that the game is a shooter with rpg elements like mass effect I think it might do well.
Exactly what i was thinking.

Even if you did not like a single PS3 game, you would still have a blu-ray player for 40 dollars.
568  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FNC/Production 1 Conference Recap (FFXIII-2, Agito XIII->Type-0) on: January 18, 2011, 09:41:53 AM
Ugh......oh well, can't say i was expecting much from Square fucking Enix, atleast Versus looks nice.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 sets off major negative vibes. I hope they release more info on this game soon.
1. The fact that this is so close to being finished makes me think this is going to be a mix and match Frankenstein of all that content they said was scraped from the original.
2. Lightning , wtf is she wearing? She went from something that was atleast practical for battle, and pretty much in character for her wear, due to her personality..... to that! Medieval stripper outfit.

Lightning's new friend looks an awfully lot like Vayne from XII

Amazon is gonna catch so much hell for this when the massive cancellations happen.
