PSP2 or the NGP (Next Generation Portable)

And now the moment everyone has been waiting for the PSP2! Oh wait I mean the NGP which stands for Next Generation Portable.

Finally we have the duel analog sticks the PSP should of had to begin with, a 5 inch OLED screen with a 960x544 resolution, 3G, Wi-Fi, Front and back touch screens and a 3 axis tilt mechanism plus a front and rear camera. So long to UMD as this machine will use flash memory cards for it's games.


Sony said we'll see some of it franchises for the system and named Killzone, Resistance, Little Big Planet, and Uncharted. They showed some gameplay from the Uncharted game.

You'll be able to jump with the X button or by tapping the touch screen. Say you're on a vine and need to swing you can do this by swinging the NGP back and forth (Ugh) and to climb you can move your fingers on the rear touch screen as though you're climbing in real life (double ugh).

This time we'll see trophy support for the portable titles and a reworked front end. It looks as though the XMB is out replaced with a more graphical interface.

I like the trophy support but I don't know what to think about the XMB going away, I always really liked it.

I think Sony is going the right way in making this a better machine than the PSP was. The second analog stick alone is a major improvement. I'm interested in seeing what else they have planned for this NGP in the future.
