Will it bring back portable gaming? I didn't know portable gaming left. With the Ipod, Ipad, PSP, 3DS, DSI, and sales up in places like Japan, I dont think portable gaming went anywhere.

I have to say that i agree with your statement. All of which JoGam has stated above is true. I mean I still love to play on my psp and 3DS and the games are fun.

The praise that the vita gets is based on the potential its technology can usher in.

over 200 million portable consoles sold in the last gen.

Slow news day i guess

Actually its already 150m for the DS and 70m for the PSP. And they are still selling. Portable gaming won't just die that easily....

IMO i think portable gaming has changed from dedicated gaming machines to more of a multi media device. The NGP looks cool and certain has the specs but the fact is do i really want one/replace a device in my pocket. The answer is no. My phone does a lot. It may not have big games but the games are good and certain pass the time for short journeys. I can see portable gaming being great for going on holiday but i cant afford to go often enough to warrent a purchase
