As my previous post seems to not have passed moderation, I'll ask again.
The article states that the MP3 player has a "more extensive range of capabilities." What are these capabilities that neither the DS nor the PSP have?
Plays MP3's? PSP does that, plays video's? PSP does that. Plays UMD's, iPod doesn't do that, Wi-Fi? PSP does that. Dedicated console? iPod doesn't do that. Downloadable games? PSP does that. Proper GPS with a GPS receiver? PSP does that, iPod doesn't. Touch screen, PSP doesn't *need* to do that. Camera? PSP does that. Hooks up with a PC for media transfer without needing third party bloatware? PSP does that. Hooks up to a PS3 to play video's that you recorded off freeview? PSP does that. Allows you to access your PS3's hard drive from anywhere in the world over Wi-Fi? PSP does that. Ability to play PS1 games? PSP does that.
I'm struggling here to find this "more extensive range of capabilities." that was mentioned in the article. The only thing I can think of that the iPod has that the PSP doesn't is a touch screen and Bluetooth. So how did the iPod manage to score a 90% in a review when it compares very badly to a PSP in the range of capabilities?
Yes, it may compare more favourably to the DS, but the DS isn't designed as a "gamers" system like the PSP is, its designed for quick, fun and addictive games, the same as the Wii isn't designed to go head to head with the PS3/Xbox.
So I'm really interested in knowing about these capabilities, I'm sure everyone is, after all to be given 90% must mean that it can actually play the same Assassins Creed as the PS3/PC will be able to do.
