With Nintendo hogging all the attention with their 3DS, it was only a matter of time before we finally got wind of a PSP2. Well, today at 2011 PlayStation Meeting in Japan, Sony did just that. Only now it’s not a PSP2, but rather NGP, or Next Generation Portable.
Sony’s new portable boasts some seriously impressive features, including a 5-inch OLED display that is four times the resolution of a current PSP, flash-based game media, 3G and GPS connectivity, front/rear touchpads and cameras, electronic compass on 3 axes, and yes, dual analog sticks. Note that these are proper sticks, and not just the nubs that PSP owners have put up with for 5+ years.
Games teased during the event included heavy hitters such as Resistance, Killzone, and a gameplay demonstration of an Uncharted game.
Gamers can expect to get their grubby mitts on the portable this holiday season. We’ll update with a price and full specs as we find out more.
