aGamingSite questions whether the device is too big... and whether that really matters, as well at looking at the boots it has to feel of the original PSP
No its great.
Its a Perfect size.
No "That's what she said." jokes? Ok, I'll start it... "As my gran always said...an extra inch can be as good as a mile! " Did your gran really say that? And was she really talking about the NGP? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............
i myself would pay premium for a model with a 7 inch screen.
If you've seen it first hand you would know it's perfect for teenager or adult hands, but it may be too big for a young child.
I would have preferred something closer to the size and format of the PSP go. But I think stuffing that much power into something so small would have created too many heat and power issues.
I feel real gay now that I look at my comment.
The iPad is too big thouhg. 10 inch screen table is too big. 7 inch screen tablet is the right size. You can put it in your coat pocket or your man-purse. LOL.
just like how the PSP is just a nice size for me IMO. iPad like 10" is obviously too big and Samsung Tab like 7" is also kinda too big. 5" is just nice IMO and will still fit into my pocket. the thing about Go! was it's kinda small and thus I prefer 3000 over it. can't wait for NGP!
Agreed, nice screen, 2 sticks. Day 1..depending on price
lol screw you mang. you're buying it Day 1. agree \/\/\/
The Ipad says no, the NGP isn't too big. 5inch OLED screen. Doesn't get better than that.
As my gran always said...an extra inch can be as good as a mile!
Why would your gran say that to you? Incest is a terrible thing.
She read too much Mills and Boon. Incest? I think that was a boardgame we used to play every Sunday afternoon. I can remember the adverts on tv... 'New from Mattel... Incest... the game the whole family can play!'
Lol, I used to play that too. My Dad always got an extra turn for some reason. I'm sure he used a weighted die, we had to use different dice to him. 'It's part of the game' he said.
question is will it fit in my infamous 2 sling bang the answer is yes so i'm good.
Its only slightly bigger than the original psp fat, we wont know how well its size works until YOU can hold it for yourself.
the size doesn't matter it is how well it preforms that is key
I guess you never made her say "Damn!" when you whipped it out... Edit Below: And I'm getting disagrees, lol. I'm sorry but some of these comments are too good to pass up...
LMAO!!!!!!! Wow that was the perfect reply.. Didn't even think about what he just said.
like this. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Is that a NGP in your pants or are you just happy to see me?
Next Gen Penis? Haha
well if it has the same games and cant fit in ur pocket and cost more then a ps3 well then get a ps3
The size is perfect for a hand held game unit. Its not a Smart Phone.
It's a smart portable. :D
It's god size... the most important thing is that it'll pack lots of power in it... and it's design for hardcore games! :) Now if the price is right I'll get it!
YUP like the 360 so i will give u a agree for ur reply XD
does the 3DS have too much 3D? jeez...gimme a break. NGP is the true definition of a dedicated gaming handheld.
yeah until its over run by fps games
like the 360??
Wait for the slim model?
i would wait for slim model
Your call. At the pace that technology is progressing, there is very little doubt Sony will shrink the materials for the NGP sometime down the road. One thing that should come as a humbling thought is that if many more people wait for the first revision than the second, third etc; it maybe pointless from a gaming value. Unless someone wants a really thin PSP2, there is not point in waiting. The NGP has been in development since 2008 and the initial wave of games will be better than people expect. It will all be within the first generation of the NGP model as well. So add to the fact that the next revision has an uncertain date and that there maybe some sweet games; buying early could be a big bonus. Also, I want to buy a multi-player online game around launch and have other players online too. Who wouldn't?
The scary part is by the time NGP comes out we will see smart phones and tablets just getting quad core GPU's from Nvidia and Qualcomm with more cores than the NGP. Exciting times for tech I say.
NGP is too perfect thats what it is
Probably a little bigger than I'd like, but with so much tech and a decent size screen (to make use of said tech) you've got to compromise.
We won't know till the first remodel seeing as game boys got smaller, PSP got smaller, DS got bigger...we'll see.
Still getting it day one regardless. But I can't say that it's size hasn't concerned me. My 3DS is just right in terms of size and pocket consumption. This thing could be a real ball breaker to lug around. But I'll do it!
I think I'll start carrying a man-purse to lug this thing around.
I didn't even know it was thinner than the PSP-3000. Even better size wise. Would there even be a NGP slim?
If possible, of course, redesigned (slim) models increase sales (usually for the short term), reduce manufacturing costs and there for allow for more profit, or similar profit levels at a reduced consumer price (again, increased sales). It's basically win win for the manufacturer.
playing a $300 handheld on the bus, give me a break buy a car already.
Can't play while driving. Bus: 1 Car: 0
Doesn't seem to big for me and its a PS3 in my pocket. I can't right my PS3 Slim in my pocket. So I got no problem with the size.
Those sticks better not be sticking out cuz there will be a problem fitting it in my pocket. other than dat no prob with me. i have a 3DS, just waiting to buy an NGP dont care about the price. both handheld are goin to be great.
Well said and, yes, the analog sticks are my greatest concern. Those bad boys better click in or something.
IGN stated the NGP's micro analogs as being "Fairly low-profile". The hinted that it would fit in pockets, no problem. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I am pretty sure they will ,.. a bit (they are real analogs -thank god) Probably It will have some sort of slip in-over cover with touch pad on the back exposed,.. Surely people will not just be jamming it into jeans,..It is a beast,.. I want one so bad,..
yes, its bigger then the original PSP and i got use to the sizes of the psp-slims
No problem if it is. I carry around a bag whenever I go anywhere. I doesn't have to fit in my pocket. But I won't be taking a $300 and up handheld around with me too often anyway. To easy for someone to snatch it out of my hands while I am playing or to pick my pocket
