Agree on a "little bit of this, little bit of that." haha

I also want the NGP (PSP2) so badly. It's going to be such a huge step up from the original PSP. So many features and games it won't even be funny. Sony, make the thing $300 or less and you've got a winner...and a day one buy from me. (Any higher and I'm waiting for a price cut.)

Ummm, as much as I'd love to think they'd throw in the 3G service for free (ala the Kindle), I highly doubt it. Would be nice though. :) And I personally just can't make myself spend more than $300 for the PSP2. I'm hoping for $250 for the non-3G PSP2 and $300-350 for the 3G PSP2.

If the PSP2 (even the non-3G one) is priced the same as the 3DS, then the 3DS is going to have some serious competition. Look at all the features built in the the PSP2. Plus, there will tons more hardcore games on it (i.e., Call of Duty, Killzone, Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance, etc.)

Do you know of any other devices that features free 3G? Unless sony buys a telco I can't see it happening.

Very cool, and although I was hoping to avoid it, NGP is quickly becoming a 'day 1' for me.

NGP will be great. Hopefully developers will find innovating ways to play like they did with the DS with two screens. At first they didn't know what to do with two screens, one of them touchscreen, but after a while they did great games for it. I hope is the same with the NGP with One touchscreen, one rear touchpad, two analog sticks, augmented reality, 3G, etc

Have to wonder why Sony hasn't supported AR on the PS3 more than they have. Also if this glyph-less type can be patched in.
