If the PSP2 is schedule to release in 2012 then thats bad considering 3DS will have a yr without a direct competitor( direct as in traditional video game handheld) . Nintendo could easily reduce the price of 3DS to go along with a improved library.

Also consoles could receive price drops by the time PSP2 releases everywhere.

That's a great point. Sony can't wait too long or they'll be the odd man out. If they are trying to compete against Apple, do they have what it takes to kill the public perception that Apple is the best brand in the land? And if they fail on that front, will they be unable to adjust strategy to compete against Nintendo who remains the handheld console emperor?

None of this even gets off the ground if they don't launch this year. If they somehow sidestep the "cool brand" problem, will the NGP's price kill 'em before they start? Sony had better think this thing through thoroughly before they step out again.
