Early this morning, Sony announced it’s successor to the semi-popular PSP. The new device is code-named NGP (short for Next Generation Portable). The announcement this morning listed many features of Sony’s new portable. It’s not just a PSP evolution, it’s got some serious upgrades.
- Size: 182×18.6×83.5mm – Basically a little bigger than the PSP 3000.
- 5″ OLED Screen – 960 x 640 resolution (almost as good as the iphone 4′s retina display)
- Processor – quad-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU. SGX543MP4+ graphics processor (GPU)
- Multiple Controlers: two analog sticks and touch pads. And the screen is a touch-screen.
- Cameras – two cameras – one on the front and one on the back
- Wireless – 3G (why not 4G?), Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), bluetooth, and GPS (which is kinda cool in a game platform)
- Motion Sensors – six axis motion sensors to help game-play
- No UMD – apparently they’re STILL killing the UMD, so no disks. The NGP will use a small flash card (probably SONY proprietary).
- Region Lock – whoopee…
- Release Games – Of course Sony is going to put some popular title games on the device, available on the as-yet-announced release date.
Now, when they start releasing cheat codes for the games, we’ll be adding them to CheatCodes.com – don’t forget to check here for more details as soon as Sony releases them.
