With the NGP offering full backwards compatibility for downloadable PSP games as well as upgraded gameplay options, could it become the best platform to play PSP games on?
well, of course.
If ALL PSP titles are offered on the store, then yes.
Well as long as Sony prioritize and have all the PSP classics up (and not just a load of low grade filler titles...I'm looking at you PSone Classics), it will be great.
yeah...statement of the obvious As a go user, I really hope they fully embrace the digital copies of games. Maybe even offer portable versions with the console release. Like with how movies are being offered with digital copies you can download. I wouldnt mind paying an extra 10-20$ to get the new uncharted game bundled with uncharted 3. Hook the psp/ngp to the ps3 to do the validation and install. Come to think of it...why are there no digital copies of movies for the psp on sony blurays?
The NGP is the Best Thing that Happened after the PSP.
The Vita is a really Exciting Piece of Hardware.
It really is. It looks great! My only issue is that it is really big and knowing Sony they will release a slim model a few years from launch. I am buying it day one though
i would hope.....it would be a bad selling point if they were like the NGP worse than the psp but we still want you to buy it.....im excited for this just hoping the price isnt the same as buying a new console
I agree, hopefully they won't kill with the price point, sort of what nintendo did, because i just see my self spending 250 on a ds, when I barely will use the 3D features. but with that said The Vita looks pretty promising at the moment.
yeah thing that is holding me off besides games(which will be next week so no complaints) is the 3G....why do i have to pay for a service plan when i have a million other things that can access my email and internet?
you are just a troll. Nobody forces you into a 3G service plan. There (most likely) will be two devices, one with and one without 3G. Nobody said, 3G is limited to one carrier either. It could simply have a SIM slot.
This will be awesome. I had a PSP and bought some games off PSN for it, but later sold the handheld. This means when I get my NGP, I'll be able to redownload them. Totally agree with this editorial.

I can have wifi whatever I go anyway. The money i will be putting in 3G service every month can go toward my gas every two week.
Hmmmm, I remember when Sony announced the PS3 with full backwards compatibility with ps1 and ps2 games, we all see how that turned out. It's called a bait and switch and Sony are masters of this technique
I don't think psp compatibility is hard for the NGP to achieve, plus the initial 60gb is still backwards compatible so if you're still paranoid then just be one of the initial buyers.
Its what the PSP should have been.
dual analog sticks. bring on BATTLEFIELD!!
