Alright – so we have almost all of the details regarding the PSP2/NGP – but we’re still missing a few. Namely the price! We’d like to here from you guys in the comments, and we have a few questions for you…
The Price? How much do you think the PSP2/NGP will cost in Australia? OLED screens don’t come cheap, but Sony has learned a few harsh lessons from the launch of the PS3, so that may have an impact.
The Battery Life? We’re probably a long way off from knowing exactly what the battery life of the PSP2/NGP will be. It will depend, I presume on how often you’re using Wi-Fi and 3G. It’s probably worth bearing in mind, however, that OLED screens drain less battery than LCD screens – so that could have some bearing on things.
The Games? Actual proper release titles were conspicuous by their absence, and we found the amount of PS3 content being shown a little bit worrying. Most third party developers presented and left the stage without announcing any new titles whatsoever. It all seems a little speculative at the minute. Will the PSP2 suffer from the same issues as its predecessor – could it become a dumping ground for lacklustre PS3 ports? It’s tough to say at this early stage – but Sony (obviously) will support the device heavily. We’re remaining positive.
The Competition? This is an interesting one. The 3DS is obviously a direct competitor, but the inevitable launch of the iPad 2 also looms large. Where impact will these three mobile devices have on one another?
