    Sony Unveils Next Generation Portable (NGP) Console with Specs

    Sponsored Links
    Update: [Register or Login to view links] has now confirmed that Sony's Next Generation Portable (NGP) console will utilize NVG cards to provide an extra layer of security, to quote:

    "NGP games will come on an ‘NVG card’, a flash based memory system that will also be able to store downloadable content. When pressed, Hirai said the NVG card was developed to ‘add an extra layer of security’ in order to deter piracy, a hot topic after recent PlayStation 3 hacks."

    Today Sony President and CEO Jack Tretton has unveiled the Next Generation Portable (NGP) handheld PSP2 console followed by details and NGP pictures from Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein below!

    To quote: PlayStation fans across North America will be waking up to some exciting news tomorrow.

    At PlayStation Meeting 2011 in Japan a few moments ago, Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, SCEI, introduced the world to the newest addition to the PlayStation product family and the future of portable gaming: currently codenamed NGP (Next Generation Portable).

    When PSP first launched in 2005 in North America it changed the way people thought of portable gaming and raised expectations in regards to the variety and quality of games users expected to access while on the go. It has since become the go-to handheld entertainment system for more than 64 million users who seek home entertainment quality games along with access to their music, movies, photos and more.





    With NGP we carry on this rich history of redefining industry standards and raising the bar for consumer expectations for what portable gaming can deliver. Designed to blur the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, the NGP will offer Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity.

    The 5-inch OLED front multi-touch display will bring brilliant images to life and the multi-touch pad on the rear will allow users to engage with the game and characters with a simple movement of their fingertips. Additionally, services created specifically for NGP will be available on PlayStation Network. These services are designed help users take their gameplay, as well as interaction with other gamers, to new levels.





    While we here at PlayStation are thrilled to bring this cutting-edge technology to your fingertips, we all know that content is critical to the success for all of our platforms. I’m pleased to share that your favorite franchises will be coming to NGP, including Uncharted and Call of Duty. We are working with our extensive network of 3rd party developers and publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios to create experiences unlike anything else on the market.

    Also announced this evening was PlayStation Suite, an entirely new initiative from PlayStation that will provide fans with the opportunity to enjoy PlayStation content on an open operating system for the first time in PlayStation history.





    PlayStation Suite will work with Android based, “PlayStation Certified” portable devices – including mobile phones, smart-phones, and tablet PCs – to offer “PlayStation quality” content to users worldwide. In addition to providing a selection of PS one Classics, we are also working with developers to create new and exciting content that will be available on both PlayStation Certified devices and the new NGP when it comes to market.

    I think you will agree that the incredible momentum behind PlayStation continues to grow with each passing year. While 2010 was record breaking thanks to an unsurpassed line-up of award winning AAA software, the introduction of 3D entertainment into millions of homes and the launch of our incredibly successful PlayStation Move motion controller, 2011 is already shaping up to be one of our biggest years yet.

    A touchscreen on the back that isnt very attractive looking i mean they shoulda had the screen in the front touchscreen and captive and the 3g support is nice but that means that verizon at&t and t-mobile would have to start selling these if anyone wants a working network so i wanna see what happens.

    If you read the specs correctly it states that the front screen is touch and capacitive. The same just applies to the back screen. Might be a way to use the back screen as a L2 and R2, possibly L3 and R3 as well if mapped right. Looks promising except for the fact that the media suggests that this system will be hacked in no time. ppl are more educated than before about sony security tricks. Even the average gamer is up to date on sony methods. EIPoDT!

    Touch sensitive on the BACK? silly silly silly.

    People want to have the feel of more direct control. Not indirect by having to judge where their fingers are in relation to the action on screen. I really want to be proven wrong by smart developers and control systems. WELL DONE SONY, WELL DONE... DOH.

    EDIT: I WAS WRONG. It has it on the front. NOW I'M EXCITED!!!!

    Well its not like the last pic. This is looking like a PSP 2. The last pic looked like a modded PSP Phone.

    Still, lets see how it goes with the pricing this time. I guess it'll cost more than a PS3.

    This is more like a PSP. Specs are amazing can't wait to get my hands of one of these (if the price is right, which probably will have to be £250 max).

    Looking forward to the touch screen, would like to see how there going to use it in gaming.

    And as usual it will be 10x better if it gets hacked homebrew will be pretty amazing.

    Good thing it doesn't have that ugly PSP GO look. The damn thing is so uncomfortable. Neat device never the less. Looks like Sony stepped there game up. Lets look forward to hacks and homebrew... LOL.

    actually like the looks of it... just like the original PSP, but more PS3/Move like, hopefully it delivers...
    just saw the sensor in action, that's asking for the damn thing to fall and break... lol

    umm there is no screen on the back... but wow a multitouch capable capacitive pad on the back now thats thinking, it probably took 10 sony devs to come up with the name for it since "trackpad" was so old school.
