A friend had one back when I was in school. I remember playing GTA on it. :cool:

Why buy a PSP 2 when you can play THIS on your phone that you carry with you anyways:

Sometimes I really hate having a droid.

I see Nintendo having a hard time competing in the new mobile gaming market, much less Sony. (Unless the PSP phone is a success... which is it a PSP or PSP 2 integrated in a phone? Not a separate platform, I hope.)

Very much doubt it. I am sure it will look great, but for a handheld. No way does it compare to PS3/360.

Well low end GPU's are pretty comparable to PS3/x360 these days. AMD's Ontario fusion platform could definitely do the job, but I think it still uses a bit too much power. The platform is capable of sub 1w, but I doubt it would perform well enough at this power level.

What is the current PSP's power usage? Maybe an 8w APU won't be too much, but for a phone I know that it certainly is.

PSP = somewhat PS2 performance

PSP2 should almost equal PS3 performance.........or there about!

..wishful thinking?

If they use a "fusion" type of config, I think it's possible. Remember that the resolution will not be 1080p. In fact, it probably won't even be full 720P.

Less pixels to process = higher performance.

Yeah, but it's the thought that counts I guess. -.-

I'd be more worried about battery life.
The reason Nintendo owns portable gaming is that their console is the only one lasting 6h+ while gaming fully.
Sony and Sega in its time did the same mistake: higher perfs, prettier graphics, but shorter battery life. What is the point of a portable if you need to be hooked to a power plug?
