PSP2 Revealed

27 Jan

Code-named NGP (Next Gerneration Portable) this successor to the PSP was announced at the PlayStation meeting in Tokyo. I’ve always been in Nintendo’s corner when it comes to handheld gaming but Sony’s NGP does turn my head a bit.

No word on a price or a release date yet.

Here are some features and specs…

Now I don’t do a ton of handheld gaming. But for those who do I’d say this upcoming portable looks epic. The graphics look stunning and you’ll be able to carry around games like Uncharted and Little Big Planet. The device will also support the PlayStation Trophy system so you’ll be able to earn on the go!

Thoughts on this announcement? Planing to get your hands on one?

    Is a head turner, Jill.. I like that the software will come on media(flash based cards), instead of D/L only !

    I’ll probably get one myself… I mean I did own like an accumulated amount of like 6 PSPs through the previous years lol hopefully I won’t break or lose this one. Still need more details but I’m sure the price will be interesting – They’ll probably match the 3DS US market price and justify it by amplifying the features they have in comparison to Nintendo.
