Sony Announces New, Super-Powered PlayStation Portable
There is also no shortage of control options. The NGP sports dual analog sticks (which should make current PSP owners very happy), as well as a traditional directional pad, a five-inch OLED touch screen with an impressive 960 x 544 resolution, and a touchpad on the back of the device, similar to what you would find on the Motorola Backflip.
As for games, there should be no shortage of content. The NGP will be backwards-compatible with downloadable PSP games, and will also work with the newly announced PlayStation Suite, a game store and development framework that will bring PlayStation-branded gaming to Android phones. There will also be games available on physical media, although Sony hasn't specified what that media might be. (We're pretty sure it won't be a new version of UMD.) Sadly, the NGP won't be landing until the holiday season, and Sony wouldn't give a price. However, the company has said that the handheld will be "affordable." Now, if you'll excuse us, we have to go start berating our current handhelds in hopes that they'll sprout a few new processor cores.
