Sony Corp. this month began a text-based ad campaign for the NGP (Next-Generation Portable) hardware via Google Inc.’s AdWords network.
Jesus, we don't even have a release date yet!
. Through E3 2011, Gamescom 2011, TGS 2011, etc, until released.
And when's the last time we saw an ad for Move? I love they're supporting this to high heaven, but don't drop the ball on your other IPs, please.
...no official name either. :o
PS3GO Nuff said
Hamburger123 that actually works. It explains the product in the name like the 3DS (or atleast how it is to be marketed) and has a 3 in the title to make it not seem like its behind the 3DS if consumers don't understand what they are buying. PSP2 vs 3DS? Not good PS3go vs 3DS sounds better.
We do Sony said they aim to release fall 2011 in atleast one region.
I cannot wait!!!!
I don't think they will outdo MS Kinect advertiseing, $500million. But it is good to let people know that they will be comming out with this new awesome handheld soon. I'm pretty sure that it will be available this November, latest in early December to be ready for x-mas. I think it will be sold out and will be hard to find.
what does kinect have to do with this? Of course it wont come anywhere near teh kinect budget but it shouldnt have to as its not a piece of shovelware crap.
Don't get offended. I'm just simply pointing out that Sony isn't as dumb as MS to sped $500million on one things adverts. NGP is a much better pice of hardware and not a gimick like Kinect is.
no offended at all, i just dont see the relevance
I think you mean outspend. Probably not, but you don't necessarily have to.
Its not about promoting the NGP so much as trying to take away from the 3DS launch and make sure people see that Sony has a handheld device to offer instead of just the 3DS. So price, name, even launch date more accurate than holiday this year, doesn't matter as much right now to them, its about the option to wait for the NGP instead of just the 3DS.
you are right on that my friend.
Release The KRAKEN!!!
what the hecks is that thing
Just get Kevin Butler and your good.
I think they got that kid to promote psp last time, i prefer KB.
price please. Dont get me all hyped up and then throw a $500 price tag at me.
Yeah, I'm hoping for at the most, $350 for the priciest model. I'm hoping for a $300 Wifi model and maybe $350 3G model. That pricing would be enough to let people know it's more premium than a 3DS, but not so astronomically high that it scares people off, including me. haha If there's a $300 or less version of the PSP2, then count me in. I'm truly praying for Sony to go price for price with the 3DS and have a $250 model version.
Sony can't missed the Holiday season. I repeat, Sony can't missed the Holiday season. hell it would wise to release it before Black Friday considering retailers would have PSP2 deals that consumers cant turn down, Offtopic- personaly im liking this new interface in place of the XMB. I really don't want to be forced to used touch screen controls for navigating through menus. I really find that process slow and unnecessary when I play with people's phone and Ipods.
