Here's a nice little comparison of the PSP-GO (Right) and the yet to be released PSP-Xperia (Left).




QUOTE
Inside the PSP Go-esque device (see a side-by-side above!) is a Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, a "likely" 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 CPU, a 1,500 mAh battery, a 854x480 resolution 4" display, a 5 megapixel camera, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, a microSD slot, SIM slot, micro-USB connectivity, and more. The phone is packing a "PlayStation Pocket" app, though it's not clear what games it will support. Is the PlayStation Phone a PSone phone, leveraging the software emulator written for PSP and PS3, or will it run PSP1 games? While Sony continues to do the world's worst job of keeping a lid on things, we'll keep guessing at the ultimate feature set of the PlayStation Phone. Bounce on over to Engadget for vids and specs on Sony's big secret.

My question is this: What do you think of the idea? combining phone and portable gaming console?

I personally think it's great. I love playing games, and especially on the move. The PSP is my favourite portable console. I still have my original PSP-Phat(1000) which i still play even now. The fact i already had a PSP put me off the idea of getting a PSP-Go. But now they've combined the phone and the PSP, i think this is something perfect for me. Also i haven't bought a new phone in about 4 years, and i don't own an android smartphone or an iphone.

To my understanding though, this psp phone specs will be much more powerful than the original psp... Can someone confirm this? Because i'm thinking they might emulate ps2 games on it...
What do you reckon, GTA-SA on the move?

Phones do everything else so why not? A new idea and Sony won't lose much if it fails.

Is this actually confirmed now? There's been speculation and fake screenshots all over the internet for a couple of years now. Can't say as I'll be getting one; I just uncharacteristically forked out 320 for a Nokia N8 and I already have a PSP Slim.

Nice to know that they can put a second analog stick (or at least the function of an analog stick) on a phone but not an actual portable gaming system.

Nah, Sony haven't confirmed it still, but with the amount of leaked model photographs doing the rounds, I'm sure it wont be long now.



And yeah Mas, i don't see why they change it now. But i guess that will make it open for PS2 emulation...

Probably still trying to make up for the flop that was the PSP-GO with this really.

This can't be a fake.

I guess they did this to confirm what was under the bonnet.

Officially announced at last.

Now all the people bitching about the PSP2/NGP not having a phone can play with this instead. tongue.gif

the bigger question, what shitty network will you be forced to use?? AT&T sucks around my part of the country... but, if i were to ever enter the age of smartphones, i would go with a portable gaming system as my choice... and this would be the one for me to get... but, i still can't justify paying for a data plan when i get the internet at home and all day at work... i really don't need it on the go...

but, if i do ever decide to enter the 21st century, i'll get this phone...

I'm content with my Blackberry, so this is a pass, but I do plan on picking up the PSP2 (or whatever they're calling it) if/when: a ) It drops to a reasonable price, b ) Uncharted looks especially good on PSP, or (most likely) c ) Another portable GTA happens.

Oh, look at that, a B and a right parenthesis makes an emoticon. Fuck. Reformatted.

I kinda doubt it will be carrier exclusive. There's not enough draw for enough people to make enough people switch carriers.
