Digital Foundry Retro always gives interesting insights into video gaming history of the past, whether it be video games, or hardware. This time the team have looked at the battle between Sony’s PlayStation Portable the PSP and Nintendo’s revolutionary Nintendo DS console. This specific video looks at the lead up to E3 2004 where both systems were revealed. Obviously one system took the world by storm while the other didn’t quite live up to its potential.
“Nintendo DS vs Sony PSP – when these two handhelds debuted at E3 2004, it looked like the most one-sided console war ever, but history would go on to tell a very different story. Join John and Rich for this look back over the reveal of two very different mobile devices, each of which would help define the template of handheld gaming – right up until today.”
