PSP2 Update 2/15/11

with one comment

Now since the PSP2 is still pretty fresh I won’t really review the specs since the price isn’t even out yet.  But to compare it to the 3DS is hard to say.  What we do know is that the cost will not be 599 from http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/28/sony-says-ngp-will-be-affordable-wont-cost-599-wifi-only-v/

While a joke it does spark fears that this portable console will cost at least an arm.  Predications of the cost could be anywhere from $249 (3DS) up to $400.  At $249-$349 it will give the 3DS a run for its money.  Anything higher might spell doom to Sony like in the past.  Yes the hardware is pretty nice and the games might be cool but costing more than any home gaming console is not worth it.

Release date is still being kept mystery early reports say that it might come out during Christmas 2011.  Sony following the Ipad approach: 3G and Wi-Fi models will be available.  The PSP2 is stated to be able to have 3G nothing is known about the network or if there will be a separate payment plan for the service.

Games on release is not known at all but Uncharted seems to be on the list from the previews and press conference.

Seems that Sony has decided to cut some features on the PSP2.  Not known which ones but the trade off is that they will make the PSP2 more affordable.  From the article it seems that the cost is close to $250  to $300.  This gives Sony a better position to the 3DS.  Now we just need news of some games.
