“We evaluated the 3DS screens that are available and the costs. And there are lots of trade-offs. This [the NGP] is what we want to do. The portable is a totally different beast. It’s still emerging and in a transitional stage. We are developing a platform to last a long time.” - Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida
Mr. Yoshida also discussed the 3DS price…
“The 3DS is pricier than what Nintendo typically launched their hardware for.”
Mr. Yoshida said that the 3DS is ‘pretty interesting’, and then stated that it feels like a beefed-up DS.
