Sony reveals the next PSP – Next Generation Portable (NGP) on the press conference in Tokyo. This NGP will be available by the end of 2011.
The NGP sports a new OLED screen, clocking in at 5-inches and running at 960 by 544 pixels. The screen is also multi-touch capable, allowing you to articulate multiple finger input by touching, grabbing, pushing, or pulling the screen.
There are also two analogue controllers as well as motion sensors, a gyroscope and an accelerometer for tilt sensitivity. Front and back cameras, together with Wi-Fi and 3G internet access, complete the features line-up.
Because more and more gamers now play on phones rather than specialist handheld gaming devices, Sony also reveals a new “PlayStation Suite” initiative which will bring PlayStation games to Google Android devices at the press event in Tokyo.
The NGP will compete directly against Nintendo’s 3DS console, which features a less powerful processor but offers glasses-free 3D viewing. The 3DS will be out in the UK in March, while the NGP is likely to arrive in late autumn.
Just as usual, Aiseesoft will definitely prepare the best assistant software to the NGP, such as NGP Video Converter or DVD to NGP Converter. They can help users conveniently convert any popular video files to NGP compatible video and audio formats.
Though we still have no idea of the appearance of PSP2, still some information about PSP2 details is coming out as the as the issued date – Jan. 27 approaches.
According to Nikkei, Sony’s PlayStation Portable successor (PSP2) will support a 3G network connection. And the 3G provider in Japan will be NTT DoCoMo, which is the largest mobile carrier in Japan. PSP2 users can play games online and download software and movies. But whether the 3G support would be enables in other countries is still another question.
Though supporting 3G service, the PSP2 would not support phone calls, which is a notable difference from PS phone.
Nikkei says will sport a “larger than normal” OLED (organic light-emitting diode), and a new processor developed especially for the new console that will handle ‘high resolution visuals’.
Of Course we are all eagerly awaiting the event in Tokyo on January 27th where the PSP2 details are expected to be released.
Nintendo 3DS’s announcement for release in North America on March 27, 2011 make the handheld market get a bit of a shakeup. It will be a difficult decision to choose between PSP2 and 3DS.
