Sony PSP2 (NGP): Specs, Pictures and Release Date Information

Some breaking news to bring you now, as we are happy to confirm that all the recent rumor and speculation about the next generation PSP device was true – Sony has just announced and unveiled the device at their PlayStation meeting in Japan.

It seems as if the device won’t be called the PSP2, but rather ‘NGP’ which stands for Next Generation Portable. Further evidence of it not being called the PSP2 can be seen on the device itself, as the front branding simply has the word ‘PlayStation’ in the centre.

The specs are very similar to what has been leaked already. The NGP will offer a 5-inch OLED touchscreen, with a high quality resolution of 960 x 544. Then we have two analogue sticks, TWO touchpads on the device ( one front, one back) and front and rear cameras although Sony didn’t specify how many megapixels they were, yet.

Another spec which was leaked beforehand was the inclusion of 3G connectivity. Along with that, you’ll also get WiFi, GPS, a Gyroscope and an accelerometer – both of which are the exact same ones featured in the PlayStation Move accessory for the PS3.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the reveal, is the fact that the Sony NGP will be hitting stores during the holiday season – this year! No word on pricing yet, but we’ll update this if Sony announce further details.

Below is the first picture of the device, there are plenty over at Engadget, go take a look. We’ll be bringing you a lot more on the NGP shortly, including a list of games that have been revealed so far. For now, give us your reaction to the device – are you as excited as we are?

it will be great i think that sonys got the rite idea not putting it 3d it would be really expensive and also when anyone else watches 3d does it make u feel sick also it cant be good for your health because if you were were playin a call of duty game and bullets start comin at you wouldnt you instinctively duk down seems kinda pointless if it dose do all that i reckon we should just stick with higher quality 2d graphics till i dont feel sick or duk and smash my head against the floor ,LOL

yeh but if it looked more like th!!e GO it would be small again and wouldnt be capable of PS3 graphics and thats what it is capable of (APPARANTLY) so it will need to be a bit bigger than the normal psp itself asit would need a powerful graphics card lol
