The display resolution is really high, it's not Iphone 4 Retina but it's the next best thing.

Am always a fan of big displays 5" is perfect, Although the size does concern me it's 18 and a half cm's long. Which is 2 more cm's then the original PSP which wasn't that portable to being with.

I really do like the device and it certainly appeals to me more then the 3DS.

however I don't really see me taking it out with me in my pocket, I would certainly take it away with me but I don't think it's really pocket sized.

Not to mention the analog sticks seem a little to far out, and could be damaged in my pocket.

Price is also an issue if it's £300 or under I will take the punt otherwise I will have to wait, I refuse point blank to go past £300 for a console that's my limit as a consumer.

I notice Tegra 2 from Nvidia is using the same CPU Cortex-A9.

Good article, amazing Specs for a Portable.

"Through the use of ARM architecture, the company is making its device accessible to a whole new community of developers."

I found this incredibly interesting. Not only will the NGP get regular games but it will also get mobile games as well. Which is fantastic news to gamers. Any game that works on the IPHONE works on this as well.

No, that's not true.

The underlying processor architecture is mostly hidden to devs, except in a few speed-intensive portions of their codebase. The iPhone APIs (application programming interfaces) are most of what comprises an iPhone app, at least at a "middle" architecture level, and those aren't available outside of iOS.

That said, Android apps will probably work just fine.

So why did they mention when they talked about the playstation the suit the ability to download mobile phone games into the NGP? Are they talking about android or iphone games? Cause from what your telling me i am guessing android games
