Features a quad-core processor, 5″ touchscreen, rear mounted touchpad, dual analog sticks and more.
The newest version of Sony’s popular PlayStation Portable console is here and boy is it packed with drool-worthy technology. The device has been codenamed the NGP (Next Generation Portable) and will reportedly revolve around 4 primary concepts: Revolutionary User Interface, Social Connectivity, Location-based Entertainment and Converging Real and Virtual (augmented) Reality. It will also be compatible with both older, download-able PSP games as well as the newly announced PlayStation Suite.
And now the geeky stuff- Specs for the device include:
- A quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor
- 5-inch OLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 960×544
- Dual Analog sticks
- A rear mounted touch-pad (Curious to see how this will be implemented)
- PlayStation Move-type Accelerometer/gyroscope
- Electric compass (Er.. ok)
- 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS
- And cameras on the front and back
Quite the loaded little device. Sony says that the device will run “new media” games some of which were demoed at the event. The games included: Killzone, Resistance, Little Big Planet, and Uncharted.
