Information on Playstation on Android.
Personally, I don't want better than NDS graphics on my handheld systems.
All those HD details packed onto a small screen are more likely to give me a headache, if I even notice them, than leave me in awe.
Another over priced Sony product which will fail :giogio
At least it has two analog sticks this time.
An OLED touchscreen alone will add $150~$200 to the price of the PSP2. Add in whatever the hell they've got to get it running near the PS3's level, then the 3G Data on top of that... We're talking closer to the iPad price, like, around at least $600.
Which is probably reasonable, if Sony decide to market it as a tablet PC with actual games - unlike a certain other product. :LOS
The parts are really not that different.. OLED prices are actually cheap, it's once you go to bigger sizes (18" ++ ) that is becomes expensive.
They already proved they believe we want to pay a premium, plus they'll probably argue that the iPad costs as just much but only does things half as well.
Well, psp has epic games, it may have failed for sony but as a consumer i love it.
Anyway, a price that low is optimistic given what's under the hood. I'm expecting the price to be closer to twice that. Which means they'll likely charge us around £550... Which is crazy, but it's comparable to the iPad's prices so nobody will complain.
I suppose I should hold off on buying a PSP for a little while yet. I wonder if this, if true, would play old PSP games as well? :hmm Or is Sony totally against backwards compatibility now?
I'm just glad they added dual thumbsticks.
I prefer the old-school d-pad myself.
And not the abominations that put it into one giant button, either. I like the seperated directional buttons the most.
I like the idea of this more than the 3DS, but i'll buy neither anyway.
But fuck both this and 3DS though until those prices drop to $199 or something. I heard 3DS is $300...fuck that, I could buy a Wii or a 360 at that price.
3DS is gonna be $250 actually.
You can still get a Wii for that. Or an XBOX 360. Or a PS3.
And a library of games you can get used/cheap.
If anything I'd probably have to get either an XBOX or PSP before I can warrant a 3DS/PSP2 purchase.
