The day has finally arrived, Sony has finally revealed a next-generation power packed portable gaming device (Sony PSP 2), a successor to the Sony PSP. It’s been code-named NGP, I’ve no idea what that stands for, but once you know what’s packed inside this 5-inch beast, you’ll never want to know what NGP means.
The reveal took place today at the PlayStation Event being held in Tokyo and took everyone by surprise. Below you’ll find some exclusive pictures and the official specification list. The Sony PSP 2 a.k.a NGP has some really cool hardware that will take gaming to the next level.
Oh yeah, and NGP stands for next generation portable. Surely this is a gaming device for the next generation, but it will also act as a medium of social interaction. The Sony PSP 2 will not run on UMD’s, instead they’ll be using some kind of flash memory on which no information is available. So here we go, the official specification list;
