I wouldn`t call dual screens and one being a touchscreen exactly shitty 10 year old hardware.
Touch screens have been around a looong time, so have those little screens the DS has. Yeah, most PDA's don't have two screens, but they certainly have higher resolution ones then the DS, and have had touch tapping games for along time, even from some high profile companies like Sega. So, the DS really is nothing new
. But you are right, not the time or place.
I'm almost sold on Wipeout Pure. I just worry about not getting into it. Career modes, and building up stats usually get me into racers, and I'm not sure this has it. But it still looks great.
Well, Scott, to be fair, launch titles have sucked for every system since cartridges died out.
I'm not disputing this. Just disappointed at some of the corners being cut and some of the games being delayed.
Right now, I'm leaning towards Lumines and Metal Gear Acid if I do get the PSP. I can't open it till Saturday anyway (birthday, and I'd set a bad example for the kids if I open it early!) so I can read everyone's opinions. Wipeout may replace Lumines though for me.
We must agree to disagree, but my point was and still is...2 screens, with one being a touch screen on a game system all together has never been done. And the developers are/should/and will be doing all kinds of new things with it. anywho... :wink:
Check out that gamespy stuff I posted a link to. I`m pretty sure the wipeout pure has stats etc. In fact they say there is a stat that says how long you have looked at the stats! Hehe. The zone mode looks sweet! You don`t control you speed, the game does. Every lap(or every so often not sure) you go faster and faster. And you can`t get power-ups to replace your shield. So when you run out of shields, poof, you`re done. I`ve heard great things about this. I surely don`t want to push someone into getting a game they don`t want though, that`s for sure. Did you read the reviews? They seem to cover just about everything. The gamespy one seems the best and most detailed to me.
Oh, and from what I`ve heard/read, the spiderman 2 game blows on the psp. The review here seemed to be very positive, but elsewhere that doesn`t seem to be the case. I haven`t played it, so I don`t know. I just wanted to pass some info along. Don`t kill the messanger! :wink:
