Here's how the new PSP2 (or NGP) sizes up compared to its competition in the handheld gaming space.
Dam it's actually kind of huge
It's a monster. With all that power what were you expecting? It's not much bigger than the PSP 3000. I 'm sure those analog sticks work just as good as the Dualshocks analogs but I bet they feel awkward in your pocket.
Yeah, but the 3000 hardly fits in your pocket now. To be truly portable it needs to fit into a pocket. Think about the size clothes that need to be worn to slip this into a pocket. Maybe its being aimed squarely at the XXXL market?
idk what i was expecting from size, at least something a little smaller. I'm just hoping this fits in my pocket without feeling uncomfortable. idk about the psp 3000. the DS doesn't even feel right. For me since it has 3G, i feel like it should be something that i could just whip out right out of my pants (lol)
Sony NGP: Nintendo Got Pwned
@Istanbull Holy sh1t
@Nitrowolf 2 "I feel like it should be something that I could just whip right out of my pants" ROFL XD
Huge? It's like PSP-1000 which was pretty much ok with me.
I can't believe how long people were saying "we want dual analogs" and now it's I bet they feel awkward in your pocket........ some people just cannot be pleased, there's always something
It's just slightly larger than the 3000. Heck, it's probably SMALLER than the 1000.
PSP-1000 was a tank. You could throw it at the wall and it'd still work. Guess i wont be fitting this in my pocket. Now im curious what colors they'll come out with besides black and white. I want red.
You're suppose to put a chain on your NGP, and wear it around your neck like a bling bling, gansta rapper style.
I don't see how they could have made it any smaller, the size of the screen is pretty big in itself. Can't do a slide out because of the analogs; I can't think of any other alternatives.
They didn't need to go to a 5" screen. Sure it has a wow factor but I would much rather have a 4" screen and something that better fits in my pocket. As for the dual analogs...great, the fact they protrude out so far...not great.
Damn it huge. I love my Go for the reason it is portable gaming on the go. The PSP2 is a step backwards in terms of form factor. Love the specs but hate the size.
Cant get the specs with out the size know what i mean....
This is too big and a step backwards in design IMO.
Like I'd stick what might be over a $300 device in my pocket. This being not much bigger than the old school PSP is cool in my book. I expect this to become a big deal with people who already don't like it.
It looks to be about the same as the PSP phat. Oh well, that 5" screen's going to be needed for those awesome games coming up.
I don't mind, I have big hands anyway.
Where's the DSi XL?
NGP = Nintendo Got Pwned
very good 3DS = 3 DEEP SHIT
oh I see we have a rip off artist
I think bigger is better.
I hope they make one look like the PSP.GO
They could do it, but can't because of the analog sticks and the buttons. If they went with a slide design, then they would have to completely change the design of the buttons and the sticks. Later in the future they can only make it slimmer, but not shorter because of the already mentioned reasons. I like the design, specs and announced (and unannounced) games (:P) and I'm looking forward to it. :D
You right! but if they will, we don't know. They can put the analog where the start and select button is. But if they do make a Go version I will buy one.
that is big
Thats what she said! Sorry. I had to take it. I'll see myself out now...
Its Kotaku what do you expect instead of a article on the specs to give you a reason on the size of the NGP they just post a Lame pic size comparison typical Anti Sony site and everyone knows it...
Fine, but there is no denying its the least portable PSP yet. Kind of funny when you think Sony wants to remain a player in the portable gaming market.
and that is more imoportant that it being pocket friendly
Yes and no. I love using the PSP Go for music as well when I'm on the move. This thing is not pocket friendly.
people keep saying that it's big or not portable....maybe my definition of portable is different than others....i thought it meant... I CAN TAKE IT ON THE GO. not that it disappears in my pocket or i want it to be hidden.why hide the fact that i like gaming to others?portable means i'm not connected to the wall and i can take music,movies and games on the go. it's fine for its size in the fact that it's going to be powerful.compare this to something like an ipad and ngp is considered tiny. DAY ONE.
I'm remain skeptical until I see the "real" psp2 next to other real portables. Not just photoshop pictures put together.
I love the 'it's too big to pit in your pocket' argument. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the concept of *BAGS* ;) Re: PSP2 vs 3DS, both look great systems - but Uncharted on the former makes me go a smish bit squeeeee ^-^
