sinncross2706d ago

lol yeah. This sounds like interesting concepts indeed!

I just want to know whether ony will release more third party official apps like Chrome/ Firefox for the browser etc.

Spitfire_Riggz2705d ago

Hopefully they integrate everything from the NGP to the Ps3. So we should be getting some awesome updates hopefully

Well its too bad not all PSP2 owners will have the 3G model.

Masterchef20072705d ago

yeah theres going to be 3 models
1. NGP Wifi only
1. NGP Wifi + GPS
2. NGP Wifi + GPS + 3G

And as for pricing i am predicting that each one will be 50€ apart from the other.

1. 299€
2. 249€
3. 399€

BTW these are just my predicions. So dont flame me pls

nevin12705d ago

3 models?

And I don't get Wifi + GPS and Wifi only. Im no GPS expert but shouldn't it be included in all models?

Masterchef20072705d ago

that depends on how the GPS works. But your right it probably uses the earths electromagnetic field to determine the location

tplarkin72705d ago

LiveArea? I wonder if Microsoft has any legal issues with that name?
