I am on the fence about it. It sounds like it's going to be too expensive and personally I don't even want the option of 3G cause if it isn't free to use then I would just never use it and it would be paying for something totally useless for me. And for some reason I don't think they will offer free 3G service though maybe it'll be part of their PSN+ option then which might help them sell more people on it.

Though it would be a great accessory for the PS3 as a secondary control surface for some games. Like for example in flight sims as a MFD, or even in a FPS game it could keep an interactive map you could access at all times.

They could offer free 3G like the Nook, Kindle and other eReaders do. They could make WiFi a requirement for downloads but 3G for social aspects and MP.

Oh and I don't think this hardware will cost as much as we all think. The most expensive part is the OLED screen. The CPU and GPU are probably variations that are found in cellphones.

A new Uncharted game was demod on the system taking full use of the systems front and rear track pad. using the rear trackpad to climb and all sorts of other gestures. and they showed you could still play it with just the analog sticks. it looked amazing.

it uses Flash based media so it will save allot on battery live compared to UMD and will offer everything downloadable aswell. you can get all your previous PSP games downloaded onto the system. Dont forget you will also be able to hook this up to your big TV and enjoy the games sitting at home. they also talked about being able to play your PS3 games and continue the same saved game on the go with you on the NGP

This thing is pretty amazing. The worst thing about the PSP is the lack of dual analog sticks. I don't have any need for gaming on the go but a lot of people do--students or people with boring jobs.

Sony having an android games platform is very interesting but

I will not buy another PSP, mobile gaming is crap and it hurts my neck or arms depending

I don't want to look down to play and I don't want to hold a handheld up.


The only way I would play one is if its on glasses and has a controller.

So next time Sony should do that.

Looks like some analysts are thinking it'll cost as much as $399 range. There will be multiple SKUs and 3G will be optional. The place holder at gamestop is $999 lol. IMHO if they don't make it $299 or less they won't have a chance to beat out the 3DS. Personally I'd have a hard time justifying anything over $250 when a full PS3 is already $299.

$299 is realistic IMO. It looks like a great device, but I doubt I'd ever buy one since I have no need for portable gaming. I guess if they can make one version of a game that runs on PS3 and PSP2 that you can play and use the same saves on either, it might be somewhat appealing.

Yeah I am too interested in handhelds but NGP is such a cool gadget to have and capable of doing amazing gfx. It is like mini PS3
