In a NowGamer interview, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe has revealed that standard Android Apps will not be available for NGP, only those submitted to PlayStation Suite. More details here.
I am a die hard PlayStation fan and I know the NGP ain't no smartphone but... 1 No Video Output? 2 No Android Apps? So what was the custom Android OS there for? How is this future proofing? Even low end Android phones have video output & apps. Disagree all you want but these are deal breakers. I feel sorry for NGP. In my humble & honest opinion..... NGP Not Gonna Purchase day 1 & will wait till Sony put these features on the NGP 2000 or 3000. Looks like I will be enjoying my PSP 3000 much much longer & put my dollars on the Samsung Galaxy S II instead.
Quite pity, but I think it won't take long while someone will make an emulator to run Android (and other touch-based platforms) apps/games.
