Default **** The NEW PSP 2****

What do you guys think?

I want to see what they will price this at. Anything over $200 is too much IMO.

the 3ds will be 249, so i think the psp2 will be 299 minimum

quad core cpu, gfx that rival ps3 (obv not, but close), 3g, wifi-n, back and front touch screen. 5 inch oled, high resolution. dual analog. built in six-axis
theres no way it will be 200 or less

Considering how many features it has, I can't see how it could cost anything less then $200. PSP had a lack of games, although if the PSP2 is nearly as powerfull as the ps3, maybe it'll be easier to port games over. Not sure if more=better though, personally I like apples approach to handheld gaming. Simple yet addicting games that are extremely cheap.

i hafta say that thing looks awesome and i would love to have one, but i'm still dead set on a 3ds and will hafta see where sony takes this thing application/game wise.

wasn't the mistake the psp made, besides lack of games, the fact that it wasn't really a pick up and play kinda handheld console? sales show that people want quick, sometimes more casual games on the go. nintendo and apple kinda proved this didn't they?

i mean i love some of the sony exclusive franchises like god of war and metal gear solid, but those games don't lend themselves to 10 minutes here, 20 minutes there... guess car trips and plane rides are different, but i think overall quick game sessions are what people spend 2-300 bucks on a handheld system for.

sony had the best spec'd handheld when the psp was set to compete with the ds and everyone thought it would blow the ds right out of the water because of it, but they ended up losing out big time because they didn't really understand the market. are they repeating their same mistakes? will people just opt for the superior hardware? will this thing be supported by companies that make simple, downloadable, and cheap iphone-esque games? i would hafta think so.

That's a different phone. That's actually a PSP and phone in one, not a PSP2.



As for the PSP2, the problem is, just like with the first PSP, that 'mature' gamers simply don't walk around playing games all day (and older people are also more likely to own a smart phone, which has games included). A portable gaming unit is much more of a childrens toy. This is why a kid oriented handheld unit like the 3DS will sell millions, and an adult oriented handheld like the PSP2 will sell thousands.

With all the crap in th psp2, it would overheat like a mother fucker if it was a flip up version. Either that or it'd be much heavier and bigger than the normal psp2.

The main rule with electronics, is that as stuff gets "better and smaller", it also heats up faster and faster since everything's packed into such a tight space.

The size announced is probably about as small as it's ever going to be. No slimmer version of the original release this time, I'm guessing.

it still exists, it is the xperia play

just not a true 'psp' device
it'll play certain psp/ps games, and most android games

its definitely an android phone first and foremost, with built in gaming hardware and access to some exclusive playstation material
