    PSP2 sounds...interesting. Price and Launch lineup will be deciding factors for me. Chances are, I'm not going to buy either a 3DS or this until sometime next year, hopefully on sale or bundled with a game I want (MGS3 for 3DS or Uncharted for NGP).

    Hooray for quad core. Really not a fan of that UI though..

    Price will be horrible.

    I'm calling $600 handheld!

    Everything except one of the most important, battery life. This thing is useless if it only works for 2 minutes!

    How will I know what I'm touching on the touchscreen if it's on the back? It'd just feel like sliding your fingers over glass, wouldn't it?

    Any idea of that Cortex's clock rate?

    A quad core processor designed for netbooks in a handheld gaming machine... taking into account the smaller resolution screen it has to process for Sony's boast of PS3 graphics may not be all puff.

    Of course the specs clearly label this as another high-end premium gaming console, it will be to the 3DS as the PSP was to the DS. Round 2 eh Sony?

    Finally dual analog sticks and the graphics are awesome (uncharted!). Give me a decent battery life and price and I'm pretty much sold.

      Dual analog sticks is certainly a long-overdue upgrade, but the bluetooth support makes me wonder if it'll be possible to use a Dualshock 3 while the device is on a stand too...

    I'm surprised it doesn't have a mini HDMI port so you can game on your TV.

    No L2 or R2? That was one of the issues with playing PS games on the original PSP, only two shoulder buttons. And if they decide to release PS2 games on it, then it'll be an even bigger issue. Nice move, Sony.

      Perhaps remedied through simple implementation of the rear touch panel as 'virtual' triggers (split between the left and right sides of the console)?

      It's more likely you can use the back touchscreen as L2/R2.

      Fairly sure something like that could quite easily be mapped to the left and right halves of the touch pad... Although it's not ideal, it'd be okay for digital style triggers the ps1 had.

    Those nubs........... reminds me of nipples

    this thing is gonna be 2 times better than my shitty computer =(, I'd say starting price $1000 like when the ps3 first came out, soon reduced to about $600-$400

    that resolution is pathetic for 5". iphone 4 packs more pixels into 3.5"...

      That screen will look ridiculous, Remember it's a OLED screen. It'll look incredible.

    Jeez, with those specs, I can't help but fear what kind of price tag they attach to it.
