It's really amazing how the early games on the portable device look like technically and visually. Uncharted looks nearly like Uncharted 1 on PS3. This is only the beginning, but what about when the developers start using the full potential of the device in a later stage of its lifespan? I think they could surpass the original Uncharted and go for something nearly like Uncharted 2. The thing that I'm also excited about is that Rockstar Games has been confirmed as one of the supporting publishers.

I know, possibilities are endless now. It's like carrying a PS3 mixed with an iPod in your pocket.

If it's more than 200$, f*ck that.

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.

Yeah I remember having PS3 there for around 1000$ in the beginning.
The PSP still costs around 300$ right now...
If ever getting it, gotta order it from somewhere abroad I guess.

About that battery life...

QUOTE
The battery life target is the same as that of the current PSP 3000 model, Sony exec Shuhei Yoshida told Kotaku in Tokyo after the NGP was revealed. That PSP model gets between four and six hours.

If Sony achieves its target, the NGP would have a battery life that's also comparable to the less powerful 3DS, the next handheld gaming machine from Nintendo. The makers of Mario estimate that their machine will last 3-5 hours with its 3D functionality activated and up to eight hours with it turned off.

And here's a quick look at the spec:

4-6 hours ain't bad considering you get PS3 graphics.
I wonder if R* would port Grand Theft Auto IV to the PSP NGP

Keep in mind this tech is in the hands of the people who not only created the dev kit, but have been working with it for a long time. Titles around launch probably won't take full advantage of the hardware, and developers aren't going to take a large interest until they see how sales of the device are performing.

It has a quad core chip inside. I'd say this is only a lbit worse than PS3's hardware but since the screen resolution is smaller, developers can make smaller texture and improve the other aspects of the games such as shadows, visual effects etc.

Hope they make it possible to play PS1 and PS2 games on it then. GTA III, VC, SA, CoD2, FF7, MGS on a handheld? Uh... yes please!

Although...

Anybody know what kind of distribution method they'll use for games? ie UMD's or Steam-like software.

Not to fond of all the gyros and touchpads at all, slows gameplay down to a crawl all that motion nonsense.

I'll say, the visuals look much better than the first PSP, which I bought only for GTA. And double joysticks? About damn time.

If they release another portable GTA for it (don't count on San Andreas Stories, people. They're focusing on the IV universe now), then I'll probably end up coughing up the dough for this. Until then, I'm content with what I've got.

Regardless, it does look cool. Would take some getting used to though since I haven't used a PSP since GTA IV was released, and I don't have a PSP anymore.

Four cores...that's three more than my computer. This machine sounds like it's going to be comparable to the PS3.

I endorse these statements.

I wonder what sort of HD quality are we going to see, comparable to PS3 or lesser.

Edit: Scratch that, it might be worth getting not only for GTA. Wouldn't say this reflects what the games would look like on PSP2, but none the less:

I must say, I usually don't give a rat's ass about handheld products, but this looks very impressive.

Dual analog sticks, touchscreen, PS3 graphics? Pure win. Don't expect the price to be under $200 though.

So are dropping UMDs altogether now? I never really liked the PSP Go that much, was hoping there would still be an option for UMD in the new systems. Not sure if I still want to buy one.

Remember that the hardware isn't really comparable to a PS3; it would probably buckle under uber physics and the graphics card only has to handle a tiny resolution.

Regardless, this is amazing for a handheld - might pick it up if they bring out a new GTA on it.

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

Why can't it? The PS3 is six year old hardware, this is brand new, has a f*ck-load of power that rivals their own home console, has a bunch of extra features AND most importantly: it's portable. If anything it's very likely to have a higher price than a PS3.

Remember 599 US DOLLARS for the PS3? Well that price was PS3 being produced at a loss (before they cut it down even more), though Sony have said they will produce NGP at a loss too it could be anything from $400-$700. I have no idea why people expect it to be cheap, look at the power of the damn thing, and look at Sony's history with pricing of their consoles and handhelds.

I expect a 2 hour battery life from this beast.

Though I'm trying hard to hesitate, I'm starting to think that this may be the breakthrough R* was waiting to make San Andreas Stories for. I mean, it seems lately that when ANY new gaming console is released, R* is always there to make an "exclusive" game for it in alliance with it's producers to boost the sales of the console itself. So I dunno, might just have to wait this one out.

The same way we "put" PSOne CDs into PSP - download games from PS Store.

I think they already stated this has a battery life comparable to the PSP-3000, which puts it at 3-5 hours, which at the top-end is the same amount of time Nintendo said the 3DS will last.

No one knows, and chances are no.

And the price will probably be around 350 to 400. Games will probably cost $50. \

And i might get it, but not at launch.
