New Sony PSP NGP

For all of you who don’t already know, Sony has just announce the new PSP NGP. NGP stands for Next Generation Portable. People have been waiting on this for a long time now and it looks like the fans will not be disappointed. Let’s take a look at some of the features:

-CPU: ARM® Cortex™-A9 core (4 core)

-GPU: SGX543MP4+

-5 inch OLED screen

-Dual Analog Sticks (Finally)

-3G and Wifi Capable

-Front and Rear Touchpads

-Front and Rear Cameras

-Motion Control

-Three Axis Compass and GPS

Sony seems to be answering a lot of the requests from the gamers. There have also been reports of PS3 like graphics. If this is the case, how will this affect cost? This seems to be a feature rich device but could this possibly cost as much as a Playstation 3? I definitely don’t doubt it. This company has been know for some crazy prices in the past. Maybe they will try to match the prices of the 3DS. It may be a necessity in order to knock the king of handhelds from it’s thrown.

No one knows if the new PSP will have 3D capabilities or if it even necessary. We know that Sony has a hit out for Nintendo but statements have been made about Apple and the iPhone. It seems like we will see a lot of interesting things happening in mobile gaming.

I personally am waiting on a price before I get too excited. What do you all think?

 

Kinect: What’s Next?

I have had my Kinect for a little under a week now and I am loving it. It is a really powerful piece of hardware, but you have to ask yourself: What’s next when is comes to software. Of Course there are games like Kinect Sports and Dance Central that will tide gamers over for a while, but how long will these games keep us quiet. We have heard critics speak about how Kinect is not geared toward the hardcore gamer. With it’s current line up of games, this is completely true. The Playstation Move has been integrated into games already in the PS3′s library and all I see in the current Xbox library is Harry Potter (which had horrible reviews). With this being said, I am still extremely optimistic about what is to come with the Kinect. For now I am satisfied with my experience. What about you? How has your experience been with Microsoft’s entry into the motion gaming race?
