Sony Unveils the Next Generation Portable

Last week, Sony unvealed their next entry to the handheld market. Currently called the NGP, which stands for Next Generation Portable, the device will be the successor to Sony's current portable, the PlayStationPortable, or PSP.


Think Big

The new device will have a larger screen than the PSP and will be larger in size in general. In terms of power, Sony reports that the NGP can be as powerful as the PS3. They showed off the NGP playing games like Uncharted and Metal Gear. However, its battery is reported to be still comparable to the PSP, which is great.


The NGP will have several new features, including dual analog sticks, and SIXAXIS motion control. It will also have two touch pads, one being the touch screen on the front and the other being a multi-touch sensor on the back. Additionally, there will be two camears, one on the front and the other on the back. Unfortunately, PSP players won't be able to use their UMD discs as the NGP, like the PSP GO, will only support downloads with its flash memory storage.


Think Portable

The NGP is scheduled to be released at the end of 2011. There will be several models available, all will have built-in wifi, but some will also include 3G connectivity and GPS. This will allow you to access cellular data networks as well as detect other players in your surrounding area and see their rankings or chat and play with them.


No price has been given for the NGP yet, but some games have already been announced, including Uncharted, Killzone, Wipeout, Resistance, Monster Hunter, LittleBigPlanet, Call of Duty, Hustle Kings, and Hot Shots Golf. The NGP will also have "apps", such as the LiveArea app which will work with the 3G and GPS functions to bring players in the same physical location together.
