    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.

    Speculation on cost puts it around $200 - $250 to manufacture. This being Sony they wont try and mark it up for hardware profits. So speculation is about $300.

    You're awfully optimistic. :maybe

    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.

    I meant for the consumer, not Sony... :lmao

    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.

    Sony has a history of giving consumers hardware at under manufacture cost. They probably wont here, but build cost will make this about a $300 device.

    Then what happened with the PSP Go? :maybe

    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'm kinda with you there. Handhelds are, for me at least, about a return to earlier graphics styles. Simpler games. Better game. That doesn't always hold true, of course, but sometimes it does. Look at Castlevania.

    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 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.

    Depends for me. I'm not going to lie...3DS got me hyped.

    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.

    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.

    The only thing I don't like about this is the Go-like design.

    This is going to be really fucking uncomfortable to play.

    Even 300+ would be too much for a handheld.

    I think the 3DS will be more likely to get a few Monster Hunter games this time around. StreetPass offers some very unique opportunities for Capcom, thanks to the 3DS passively sharing information, and the camera angle of Monster Hunter games is practically perfect for a 3D display.

    If for no other reason than the fact that the psp (with CFW) runs any PS1 game, it is the greatest handheld available. Even if it isn't commercially successful.

    I make my own psx eboots all the time. There's also GBA, SNES, Genesis and MAME emulators.

    Old fags should really own a psp.

    Plus:

    • Wipeout Pure/Pulse
    • Prinny/Prinny 2
    • God of War Chains of Olympus
    • God of War Ghost of Sparta
    • Crisis Core
    • Disgaea 1/2
    • Dissidia 1/(and soon)2
    • Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep
    • MGS Peace Walker
    • Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus
    • BlazBlue Continuum Shift

    What more do you want?

    Seriously. I own a PS3, a PSP, a DS XL and a pimping PC. The PSP never let me down.

    Good purchase. Let me know how Golden Sun DS is.

    I bought a PSP at launch... It's currently collecting dust until Dissidia 012 comes out. I really should hack it though, but it sounds like such a long-winded process... :D:

    The Go was actually comfortable to play with moreso than the original. It's just the thumbstick was too tiny, you can barely feel the shoulderpads and the thing was just in general too small.
    But, it felt more like a controller which I preferred than a handheld system.

    I actually sold my Go for the red and black ghost of sparda PSP-3001 because the game is that awesome. :lmao And my new PSP looks badass. :datass

    Golden Sun is actually fun. Easy, but alot of fun.
