Gears Of War creator Epic Games has claimed that the graphical processing power of PSP2 - codenamed NGP by Sony - is four times as powerful as any other handheld in existence.
well at least hes finally not bending over and constantly going on about itouch this itouch that
Judging by the comment from EPIC, I guess it is safe to say that NGP is going to kick 3DS' ass!!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the concept of 3DS and being able to take 3d pictures (if that's true) but imagine playing KILLZONE/Battlefield/COD MP on the go with awesome graphics!!! Wow.. just wow!
if your talking about power wise obviously the NGP is going to kick 3DS ass but if you mean sales wise i personally doubt it im starting to get flashbacks of 2004 when EVERYONE and i mean EVERYONE was saying the psp was gonna kick the DS's ass and how it was over for nintendo etc etc yet none of that happened
but dis one is quite different, it has cod a system seller demmmmmmmmm
The thing is with the DS and 3DS, there casual handhelds aimed at under 16's.
They play differently and have different types of games. It doesn't matter to me which system "sells the most" or "wins". I don't have to choose one over the other.
I'm sorry but Persona, Dragon Quest and new Final Fantasy will kick psp2s ass anytime.Spec wise this kicks 3ds's ass but sells wise it will miserably fail.
What makes you think the new PSP2 won't have Persona, Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy as well? It definitely wouldn't be the first time those games have been on a PlayStation system. They haven't even announced any software for it. It'd be wise to hold judgement on games until later.
I love to give Sony some flak when I think they deserve it and they have deserved alot this gen...not with this device. This thing has so many bells and whistles...it's just incredible. Only issue I have is battery life, what am I suppose to do with the PsP 3000, and why this damn conference was in Japanese only...O_o I have been asking for dual analogs for so long that I had given up. I wonder if Epic would consider adding Gears to the NGP ( better get use to that name now )line up...that would be insane...same for Bulletstorm. I always said whoever comes out with the dual analogs first would kick everyone Else's a$$...Start the A$$ kicking... Well done Sony...this thing is gonna be huge...And what about the price...I haven't heard anything other than it's going to be competitive, I hope that means $199.99...wishfull thinking I guess...lol.
Add in the quad-core CPU too, and you got yourself a beast.
There's no deny that Nintendo's handheld system is the No.1 on the market when it comes to sales. But when you look Sony's PSP sales number it really isn't bad as most of you'd think. (It actually doing pretty good) Like the PSP, PSP2 is more apperling to me than the 3DS or any handheld that Nintendo ever made.
Yeah, I already saw a video showing killzone and resistance. I expect battlefield BC3(w/ good headphones) to be pretty amazing and sniping is going to rock with the gyrosensor. As far as graphics go, to me, PS3 graphics on a gorgeous OLED are more intense than 3D gamecube graphics on an SD LCD any day. Uncharted looked gorgeous BTW and people don't seem to understand how awesome the games are going to look on an OLED. Edit: Actually, all the games I've seen look awesome.
LOL the original psp has persona 1 2 and 3 what makes you think the psp2 wont have those also final fantasy shows up every where
I will say this Japan will be up in the air depending on the price point and games available. If monster hunter is there day one with 3G and Online Wifi support this thing may take off earlier than the first PSP. The thing is how much do you value 3D and Nintendo games. I was getting the 3DS for the games that they were showing not the 3D. I like Nintendo games and this is the first system in years that I feel Nintendo has given the core something to embrace day one. Japanese market is up for grabs though. The NGP is serious and has all the functionality a gamer would want.
My current PSP 2 reaction! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Gears of war Portable
Lol, that was hilarious meetajhu.
January 2011 - LG Optimus 2X is shown, the first dual-core CPU phone. I was like "ZOMG SO POWAHFUL" January 27 2011 - PSP2 is shown with a quad-core CPU and a quad core GPU. Dual core what now? @below: fairs. Then again remember how long the gap was from single core -> dual core phones? it'll be a long time before we see a phone with a quad core CPU OR GPU let alone both.
And the difference is 11 months. (Optimus 2X was released a couple days ago)
Comparing a Dedicated gaming handheld to a Phone? You sir, fail on so many levels. Sad lil humanoid. The PSP 2 is not a phone please take a moment and think about it. Idiot.
You're a cheery little f*cker aren't you, spinalc0rd?
You can expect to see quad core phones sooner than you think. Nvidias quad core arm processor release slate was leaked and they are announcing it sometime later this year with phones expected for next ces which shouldnt be too far from the psp2's launch.
The Tegra 2 has 8 GPU cores according to NVIDIA.
spinalcord They have beem trumping the new lg phone as a awesome game playing phone so why not compare the two.
NGP is much more improved over the original PSP then 3DS is over the normal DS. 3DS only adds more power and 3D. With the NGP we finally get dual stick controls which is going to matter alot, and we also get touch screen and touchpad on the back which means that while the original PSP was really lacking in the control department the NGP has almost limitless opportunities for how games can be controlled.
Yeah 3D is still just 3D classes or not, if graphics have improved to something slightly better than PSP its still years behind of NGP. What I am most excited about NGP is the fact that it brings PSP platform to this millenia whit its network features. Friend lists, communication, trophies, browser, sharing stuff and most importantly multi-player. Now if NGP is all this and still remains region free it will seriously demolish 3DS in pretty much every way possible in my eyes as far as features go.
L2 and R2 can be mapped to touch. Any game from the last 15 years is portable with this new device. The thought is scary. Real NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL games on the go without a sacrifice in quality. They could bring over the NBA 2K8 engine over probably without a hitch. They were saying that physics will never be an issue. I am so excited for this system. I hope developers get on board in full force and release everything for it.
John Carmack and Epic Games are praising the NGP!
Including the 3DS?
The 3DS can do game cube graphics, the PSP2 can do PS3 graphics. The 3DS can run MGS3. The PSP2 can run MGS4. You do the math.
"You do the math" seriously you killed your comment by saying that lol the first thing that popped into my head was the atari jaguar
lol I totally forgot about those commercials. Technically it's "Do the math"
Gamecube?...have you even seen those one piece/naruto games? this thing can barely do psp2 graphics, let alone gamecube, I give it a n64/gamecube graphics, no gamecube at all...shame you meantion resident evil? only for the mercenary mode...shame, but anyway, it is nintendo, they will make me buy it anyway
@StbI990 call me crazy StbI but im starting to think your trolling
If the PSP2 could do PS3 graphics it would cost 2 grand at that size. Also, wouldn't you feel just a damn bit cheated if a handheld with a screen could run equal graphics as your home console? Either you're prepared to pay ridiculous amounts of money for this thing (which would cause it to fail) or you somehow think sony is magic. That said, Im sure the PSP2 will have better graphics than the 3ds... but PS3 level, no way. Edit: maybe 2k is too steep, but around 900 is my estimate.
By far. Quad core CPU and a quad core GPU. Plus half a gig of ram (if rumours are true) Remember those amazingly powerful dual core phones that were coming out? Yeah, me neither xD
I just hope its not too pricey
I hope so tooo, but dammn those are killer spec!
Same here. The OLED screen worries me, but the visuals should be outstanding. Plus, if cloud is a reality as Kojima said, I'll drop $300.
Only thing that worries me is it says 3G, I wonder how much that will cost a month if you want that.
I got a felling it will cost a lot more than $300. $400 at the very least.
Price is make or break for me. I'm guessing $300.
i hope, and if so day one baby!!!
$400 is too much, but it wouldn't surprise me. $250 was too much for the PSP Go. $600, while technically a bargain considering the cost of the PS3's guts at the time, was too much. $300 for the PS3 right now is too much. Sony goes hog wild with the sticker shock sometimes.
100% buying it. Day One... Fuck it, I'm pre-ordering.. where can I pre-order?! I'm so hyped up for this. :P
Same :D Might ask my mum to get it for me for christmas. Since its coming out at the end of the year that is.
Or you could get a half time job and save for when it release in December... Kids this days...
@bishop-br Cough. Im trying. There is nothing until im 18.
any1 can get a job go out and ask
NGP= Nintendo (3DS) Got Pwned!
Micro$oft better release a Portable or Its Game OVER! :D
You should coin that or i will lol...
thats so fanboyish and even wrong but... good one =P
day 1 !!! don't care if its $300 that is chump change!!!!!!
If it is truly $300, it will be a bargain compared to the new DS. I will buy it if it is under $400(because it is worth it), but I want it to be cheaper so that more people can/will buy it.
People should take your attitude with regards to clean/renewable energy :D I think we can all agree it's a good thing in the end, let's make it happen! Use the money for a PSP2 to support green technology instead! Seriously though: I like video games as much as the next guy, but when do we quit? Shelling out 400 bucks for something so extravagant seems wasteful somehow, especially considering the general LACK of money in the U.S. Our world is greatly affected by how corporations operate, and they have to be profitable to advance. We need to put our money into projects that actually MATTER. I think many of us have gotten over-indulgent.
Ipad and smart phones are $30 a month for unlimited I believe. I surely hope the PSP is not that price. I would go for a $15 month fee. Id probably have to cut back on my dc universe then ;/
As much as I'm interested in portable gaming, I owned both PSP and DS but only bought about 6-8 games for each. To me, portable gaming isn't worth it. I have a 360 and PS3 at home and I'd like to build a gaming PC in the coming months. My break time at work is taken up by reading (I love books), so I really don't see myself buying a portable system to play at home sitting on my couch while I have a PS3 and 360 five feet away....
Do you travel a lot? I am with you regarding the portable gaming devices. I rarely play my PSP, but it was nice to have it when I was flying back to the US from the Caribbean. If I have the cash I will definitely be picking one up day one. I suspect that the demand for this device is going to be extremely high at launch. There is already a lot of buzz about the NGP since the announcement yesterday. More gadget whores out there now than in '04.
No, I don't travel much. Once I pay off my student loans and credit card debt I'm sure I will travel 2-3 times a year. Still, I have home consoles to play video games. I enjoy reading also, so I get my video game fix at home and my reading fix away from home. I don't see how people can play video games 4 hours daily at home and also 2-3 hours daily with a portable system. I read novels during my off times at work. I don't see the appeal to playing games during every goddamn free second of your day. People say they play games to escape, what about novels? Youth today depend too much on technology. I'm afraid that they'll give up novels completely.
The biggest factor is the SDK meaning ports from ps3/steam etc will take weeks, and genuine cloud features, this could bump the psp2 into gaming laptop status. they could port all the 3rd party games lined up for the fall to the console with minimal cost/development time.
so does hand held game sell at lower price than console games?
Usually yes, around 20 dollars less.
so would it be less profitable for them to make the same game as the console version? Maybe they hope to sell more on hand held than console version perhaps? The reason why i ask this is because watching movie on psp back then was actually more expansive then the home dvd version. I think that was really stupid move. I hope they not repeating the same here.
This may be my first portable since GBA. I really hope devs take advantage of all this power!
That mean sony sure that 3ds = psp I just want know how much PSP2 can handle 5GB , 8GB or what ? and I was sure that sony will create new discs with every new hardware
i seem to remember everyone saying the PsP will have the graphics of PS2, it will look as good blah blah!. I bought one, and promptly sold it within a couple of months as the games where crap, the controllers cruddy! and graphics worse than the PS1!.
Such a shame Danny, you missed out on God of War Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta (and a host of other truly amazing PSP titles). PS: Oh wait, you never owned a PSP and you were merely trolling, my mistake. Carry on!
