First off let me start by saying this is everything I could have imagined it would be. Sony has outdone themselves. It's literally a PS3 on the Go, and in the process they've corrected every fault that the PSP had with this new device. The only complaint I have is how big it is. This has made me want to buy one at launch, but I think I'll wait for the inevitable remodel to come out which may have more RAM (PSP 2000), better battery life, better screen, and a smaller size.

So a lot of our questions were answered, now list any other questions you have.

How much does it cost?

How much battery life does the device have?

Will Android OS be on the device?

I expect it will not cost as much as people think. PS3 starting price was a little high and is one reason for slow adoption. Sony know now to make a gain they first have to make a loss and I expect it to be similar in price to the 3DS.

"How much does it cost?" well it's confirmed not more than $599 so hopefully in the region of $299 - 399.

"How much battery life does the device have?" 4-5 hours depending on brightness settings - a damn sight better than it's competition with 3 hours battery life with the 3D effects turned on

"Will Android OS be on the device?" No.

3DS
CPU:: two 266MHz = 672MHz total plus ARM11 CPUs,
GPU: 133MHz GPU,
Ram: 4MB dedicated VRAM, 64MB RAM.

PSP2/NGP
CPU: ARM® Cortex™-A9 core (4 core) 800MHz to 1.5/2GHz.
GPU: SGX543MP4+ = 512+
Ram: Unofficial but rumors stated 1GB.

Nuff, don't know how good games gonna look on the 3DS 3 years from now but fanboys/girls, it wont be close to the hella boom the Ngp gonna pull.

Sry sry sry, if it werent for zelda, 3DS would be destroyed over night xD.

And here's another question.

Say devs. made games on the NGP shorter. You can play through a game in 4 - 6 hours (which is the expected battery life for the NGP according to Digital Foundry). Would you be satisfied with those games, if they were $15 - $20? A perfect example is Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty. Would you be satisfied with a 4 - 6 hour campaign, with online multiplayer for $20?

Homie, I bet that amount of time is settle at max setting, guess a fairly 6 to 7 hours or even more will be with the 3g, blue2th, and all the what not dis-activated.

Guess it is a no to your question for me but the 3DS is not hanging off from this as well, so guess, only games are gonna pull this lil handheld war.

***A 5 inch OLED screen 960 x 544 (if you have an iPhone 4 that’s what this screen looks like), ***

No, it doesn't. iPhone 4 has a 3.5" diagonal screen. It does have a slightly higher resolution (960x560), but the display area is much smaller. Rather than going with the high retina display and oversampling the resolution, the NGP is instead going with size at the standard dpi for gaming.

However it's utilising OLED rather than the LCD on the iphone 4 - producing a much higher contrast ratio and less ghosting leaving you with deeper blacks, brighter and more vibrant colours, a higher luminance too (if playing in bright sunlight) a gigantic ~ 170 degree Field Of View so you can show friends what you're doing and they will still see the same as you from any angle and a much lower power consumption.

It's not all about resolution :) hence why the Iphone 4's screen isn't as good as the HD7's screen (AMOLED vs. higher pixel density)

Wait, it's expected out THIS year? Man I wasn't bothered filtering through the multiples of articles on it with all the specific details after I had already checked a few on the main ones but I thought it'd be out in around 2 years at least.

As for the system itself, sounds great, but I'm not gonna get all my hopes up. We were told all these amazing things about the PSP too before and we ended up getting about 2 good games a year for it. The possibility with the PS3 game-demos being shown on it are good, but I'm gonna wait and see exactly what the possibilities for it are before making a judgement.

It is 2011, no 2004/6, guess someone still living in the past huh?

Doubt sony gonna rape their luck this time, they're going all for one i also believe, iphone/3Ds hence gaming obviously.
