Every now and then, when I feel like a laugh, I check my local newspaper and read their weekly column about videogames. It’s always unintentionally hilarious, because it’s written by the movie reviewer, who never plays videogames.

Last week, he wrote about the Sony NGP, which he thinks is going to bring an end to console gaming. That’s right; the Sony NGP is going to put the Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 out of business.

For those of you who don’t know, the NGP is “Next Generation Portable,” Sony’s new handheld device. It looks a lot like the current one, except it has a touchscreen. But apparently, instead of normal hardware, it has super powers. The graphics are so realistic that they make Avatar look bad. Only specialized graphics experts can tell the difference between an NGP game and reality.

This is bad news for Sony. I mean, it’s good that they’re making a system with great graphics. But it’s bad, because nobody will buy PlayStations anymore. Who would buy a PS3 when you could buy an NGP, which costs less and has better graphics? No one, that’s who. The PS3 costs about PS300 dollars, and unless NGP stands for Not Good Price, the NGP will be cheaper.

Our movie reviewer predicts that, in the future, all the consoles will disappear. The NGP will destroy them all with its HD graphics. Really, Nintendo and Microsoft should just give up now, before they embarass themselves. There’s no way they can compete with a system that has an HD screen smaller than a CD case. Long live the NGP!

  1. No it wont…. the graphics are amazing, but people are still going to want to play console games because they want to play it on their tv. While psp games are close to console games they’re still far from being fully developed. People aren’t going to stop playing Call of Duty for Killzone, online capabilities of Console is still far greater and the games and graphics are still better. That wont happen…ever.
