Thoughts on it?
Features:
3G Network
LiveArena which means you can detect NGPs in the area

Also apparently it's been re named the NGP


QUOTE
The PSP2 – or, as it’s being called temporarily, the Next Generation Portable – will as expected play nice with cellular data networks via a 3G connection. Here’s what that means for your gaming.

Sony will be implementing a service alongside the new handheld called LiveArea, which in conjunction with an “app” called Near is able to detect at all times other PSP2 (or NGP) owners in your area. It’ll show what people around you are playing, chat with NGP owners in the area, display rankings for games based on who’s around, etc.

The picture above shows how LiveArea’s user interface works, each “bubble” representing whatever a person in your vicinity is using.

Gonna have to be something incredibly good they're coming out with; the iPhone is miles ahead of them at the minute.

edit: whats more important is battery life, price, and I'm assuming you'll need some sort of data plan to get on that 3g network

double joy sticks? sweet. Dont look the look of those other tiny buttons. They should all be shifted down a bit. Also I hope a major improvement is the durability, the psp1 was so fragile, and it got dust under the screen so easy. If they take some points from apple on the construction of it, lose the UMD drive, this could be a great handheld.

PSP2

When PSP first launched in 2005 in North America it changed the way people thought of portable gaming and raised expectations in regards to the variety and quality of games users expected to access while on the go. It has since become the go-to handheld entertainment system for more than 64 million users who seek home entertainment quality games along with access to their music, movies, photos and more.
With NGP we carry on this rich history of redefining industry standards and raising the bar for consumer expectations for what portable gaming can deliver. Designed to blur the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, the NGP will offer Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity. The 5-inch OLED front multi-touch display will bring brilliant images to life and the multi-touch pad on the rear will allow users to engage with the game and characters with a simple movement of their fingertips. Additionally, services created specifically for NGP will be available on PlayStation Network. These services are designed help users take their gameplay, as well as interaction with other gamers, to new levels.

While we here at PlayStation are thrilled to bring this cutting-edge technology to your fingertips, we all know that content is critical to the success for all of our platforms. I’m pleased to share that your favorite franchises will be coming to NGP, including Uncharted and Call of Duty. We are working with our extensive network of 3rd party developers and publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios to create experiences unlike anything else on the market.
Also announced this evening was PlayStation Suite, an entirely new initiative from PlayStation that will provide fans with the opportunity to enjoy PlayStation content on an open operating system for the first time in PlayStation history. PlayStation Suite will work with Android based, “PlayStation Certified” portable devices – including mobile phones, smart-phones, and tablet PCs – to offer “PlayStation quality” content to users worldwide. In addition to providing a selection of PS one Classics, we are also working with developers to create new and exciting content that will be available on both PlayStation Certified devices and the new NGP when it comes to market
I think you will agree that the incredible momentum behind PlayStation continues to grow with each passing year. While 2010 was record breaking thanks to an unsurpassed line-up of award winning AAA software, the introduction of 3D entertainment into millions of homes and the launch of our incredibly successful PlayStation Move motion controller, 2011 is already shaping up to be one of our biggest years yet.

Oh and by the way, Sony's not calling it the PSP2, yet. It's still 'NGP' for now.

How much do you reckon it will cost? Can't cost more than a PS3.

I reckon about $399AUD since PS3 is $499AUD

f*cking awesome, although if it's more than 200, I'm waiting for price drop.

Maybe this thread should be merged with the other?

Looks like you'll be waiting then, considering both the PSP and PSP Go launched at $250, the 3DS is launching at $250, and this is Sony.

Looks cool, but let's hope that it gets a bit more support this time around.

Prices are different in Australia compared to America. In America it will probably be like, $199. And you guys complained that the launch Ps3 was too expensive at $599 when we had it at $999 spoiled bastards. Shut the f*ck up.

Well maybe if it's like 225$ - 275$, it'll be ok for me. I just don't want to be like the PS3 in it's early years, expensive as f*ck.

Looking very nice, i am very tempted to buy this. We'll see what else it has in store for us after more details arise. Nintendo should be extremely worried. tounge.gif

Mmm. The PSP Go came out here for $399AUD, so this one will possibly be more expensive, maybe say $449 sad.gif
