I have no doubt it will fly off shelves at launch, but after the PSP, the longevity of the NGP has to be in-question.

I'd say in Japan adults will eat it up (as they do really any handheld) the rest of the world I'd say it'll sell better than the PSP did Sony just needs to market it really well at launch and have games that appeal to a variety of players.

I know I'm gonna buy it as soon as I can but I don't know too many people who game on handhelds...although with 3G support and a CoD I'm sure some of my friends will pick it up just to play a game or two during their lunch breaks.

at 35 yrs old! I personally would feel a total [email protected] out in public with a handheld console like the psp, psp2!. I bought my psp while in America thinking it would atleast pass a few hours on the plane flights I had coming up! but apart from being on a plane I never took it out with me!, cant imagine many blokes in the UK at least over say 20yrs would play this out and about!? not without looking a bit of a loser!. handhelds are casual anyways and I can casual game and not look such a twonk with my smartphone/iphone
