Well having read a lot about the PSP2 now the only negative I see is that ,well, its not very portable is it . What with the size and those analogue sticks protruding and that oh so sexy screen thats just waiting to be scratched! The good thing is that none of this really bothers me.I was going to get a PS3 soon but having seen the PSP2 I think I'm going to wait for that instead. Basically a PS3 I can play anywhere in the house without taking up any more precious TV time from my missus. Even if it just ends up getting PS3 ports I'll be more than happy. My 3DS will be used when I'm on the go. I'm surprised that Sony didn't use a similar design to the GO though as that seems a more suitable design for a portable to me.

What's this bit for again?

Is that a DS Cart?? LAME

an iPhone costs 599

Ummm, no. There's a 16GB one at at 199 and a 32GB one at 299. And there might be a 64GB one at 399, although I'm not sure. But not 599. Of course, there's also the plan that you have to buy.

Im no sony fan altho i did own the PS1 but as ever sony have missed the whole point of portable gaming its not about power and graphics as Nintendo has proven since the Gameboy days to the DS. But no doubt even if its a high priced the power and graphics lovers will jump on the band wagon regardless as well as the people who just to have every new shiney bit of tech and more money than sense.

I believe this will be the first handheld that could directly be compared to the Iphone as it uses 3G and no doubt have a contract because forever fed up of people compare 59p games to the £39 odd handheld games and never take in to consideration the monthly contract. Even pay as you go iphone requires you to pay added fee to use it within a set period network dependant of course.

So if the PSP2 3G has some form of plan which with data it will use be crazy if it didnt 59p iphone games to what ever the price of PSP games will be truly price comparable. and by the time its released in the west some new phone will have bettered it no doubt Iphone 5 and be old tech.

It will probably be really expensive.. and i would rather play on a big screen with the console i already pay for than buying an expensive portable

I remember hearing some fanboys saying that the DS game carts are small, stupid and easy to lose and that the touch screen is a gimmick. Now that Sony unveiled that NGP is using Game Carts it's not a problem. And now that they have a touch-screen, it's not a gimmick.

Shows that people are just stupid these days.

I'll have to see what NGP offers when it comes to my interests to 'seal' the deal though.

@SuperMarioFan - I think you're missing the point....having to buy the plan is what reduces the price of the phones. $599.99 is what it costs to buy one without a plan.

This is just completely dispicable! How else can sony copy nintendo? They have always used discs instead of carts! And now they choose to use carts because they know how awesome they are! VERY ORIGINAL, SONY!!! "New Game Media." How stupid are you, Sony?

Has everybody forgotten that UMD was a disaster? From ease of piracy to load times, to expensive manufacturing and draining the battery life, absolutely nothing good came of it. Switching to Flash carts is quite possibly the smartest move they could've made. They're not simply copying. They're switching to something that works.

That is very much correct...
But they did shape it very similar to a DS cart, which I believe is a mistake.

I want to point out that it is good business practice to use an idea if it's successful, even if it may not be yours. UMD was pretty bad, and Sony noticed that carts work better. They didn't necessarily "copy" Nintendo, they just borrowed the idea and liked it. This is absolutely nothing new nor despicable

What if Sony and Nintendo, decided to work on an console together?

They originally were going to work together and make the PS1, but Nintendo decided not to because they couldn't agree on how the revenue would be split between them.

We'll never know, they actually might attempt that again...Plus they would still be in competition if they do it when they have equally popular consoles(Including handhelds) on the market. [So thats why the PS1 was grey]

@Swerd_Murd OK I understand, but is it fair to compare a phone with something that's not a phone? It's not like the NGP is a cell phone. or is it?!

A better comparison would be the iTouch, which at the point is basically the iPhone without the phone, and starts at $229 for an 8GB version. Now, if Sony starts charging for 3G, then I suppose that makes more sense, but I don't know. I might just be crazy. Though I doubt Sony would ever price this thing at 599.

Side note off topic: 6 years ago if I reffered to something as "a phone without the phone" you would think I was crazy.

Anyway, discuss the NGP!!!!!!

Nintendo and Sony teaming up....That would be some powerhouse, Microsoft probably wouldn't last long.
