Man, those specs are beasty.

BEAST. this is IMO, the perfect handheld

those specs look like it'll cost a lot though. im hoping it wont be too expensive, it'll never beat the 3DS marketshare at a higher price

Place ur bet pipoh...

Psp2 =

3DS =

I myself see the 3DS having the advantage here, plus a pokemon tittle would be a killer over time, tho anyone can't deny the huge hype killer psp2 pulled on here...a call of duty game would make this thing explode on sell if played right with the network capabilities...

Plus a monster hunter on japan...pokemon black/white = 5M+ units, Monster hunter 3rD portable = 4M+...bye bye 3DS

Will be getting one anyway for ocarina of time.

I'm surprised to see real analogue sticks but glad they're there. Will be great for shooters.

now people can't say the PSP2 was the worst kept secret, because that design was NEVER leaked on the internet

also it's not a letdown and Nintendo should be gearing up for some competition

StbI9902880d ago

Some hot hot competition...really, just by the fact of playing ps3 games on the go make the whole portable generation of console device dull, with network capabilities...omgfuckiness

Psp2 = Revolutionary
3DS = ...I'm sorry

seeing MGS4 on PSP2 was awesome, that has me sold day one for me, CALL OF DUTY could be cool too on it.

bluetooth is important. that means if it is possible, tether it with my 3G capable cellphone and go online with it without adding another 3G service for the handheld.

wirless B/G/N is a plus. PSP only had wireless a/b.

that means better internet connection.

hopefully in terms of the software side of the NGP, other than live area, they talk more about its web browser, PSN abilities, multitasking, PS3 interconnectivity and much more.

i think thats bound to happen.
