Announcing the PSP2 before the PS Phone is crazy considering that it is far more powerful

@Darkfocus
Not necessarily.... the iPhone and iPod touch can run the same basic apps...

While as the PSP2 is going to be an entire generation ahead of the PSP Phone. The PSP2 will offer PSP 2 games, while the PSP Phone offers a phone and PSP 1 games.

People will have to decide between the two to buy, and that'll divide the market between both platforms. Sony should be pushing the PSP2 in my eyes to better there stance on the handheld market against Nintendo.

Exactly what NoobSession said. PSP2 is completely different from PSP phone. It's like PS2 games vs PS3 games.

Fail indeed, because I want the PSP2 and the PS Phone.

That's exactly what I was about to comment. Apple's iPhone/iTouch combination is a great idea. It allows people to use the same apps and have the same functionality with the only difference being that one has cell phone functionality. I hope Sony goes the same route and puts the same hardware in the PS Phone and the PSP2 so that people can play the same games and use the same apps.

I think the Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone is going to bomb. While the PSP2 is going to be 'the bomb'.

keep in mind that both could be aiming for different demographics. people who have a psp and want the next gen version will likely get the psp2. People who have a phone and want to play games like the psp did could go for the psp phone. I dont think the same people will be buying both.

It is also pretty obvious that each will support remote play. When you look at remote play settings it says psp, phone and pc. Safe to say those would be the ericsson and vaio branded units.

As compared to other phone/gaming portables...it certainly beats the talking taco.

I just want to slap the person in the face who thought this was a good idea. The sony guy, not the author.

Nice read! As much as this may be an issue for Sony down the line, I gotta admit...I'll probably end up buying both of those damn things hahaha...Ugh my wallet!!!

silvacrest2501d ago

if the psp2 has some phone functions i'll just get that, if not i'll get both

T3mpr1x2501d ago

Ah, hadn't thought of that...If that were the case then yea I'd stick with the PSP2.

JonnyBigBoss2501d ago

Both look great, but I can't imagine owning both...
