Super Perfect Oval PSP2

Sony has just come clean with its next-generation PlayStation Portable.
 It's actually codenamed NGP and will revolve around five key concepts:
1.    Revolutionary User Interface
2.    Social Connectivity
3.    Location-based Entertainment
4.    Converging Real and Virtual (augmented) Reality
5.    It will be compatible with the PlayStation Suite
6.    Backwards-compatible with downloadable PSP games and content from Sony's PlayStation Store

Specs include a:
1.    Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor
2.    5-inch touchscreen OLED display with 960 x 544 resolution
3.    dual analog sticks (not nubs as on the current generation)
4.    3G
5.    WiFi
6.    GPS,
7.    a rear-mounted touchpad, the same accelerometer / gyroscope motion sensing
8.    an electronic compass
9.    cameras on both the front and back.

Available this 2011 holiday season!

Games will come on "new media," not UMD anymore.
Sony's live event has been graced by demos of some pretty popular games, including:
1.     Killzone
2.    Resistance
3.    Little Big Planet
4.    Uncharted

With the latter serving as a demo platform to show off how the NGP's rear touchpad can be used to more intuitively climb up some vines. That touch panel on the back is the same size and positioned directly under the front OLED touchscreen, which allows for some pretty sophisticated controls when using the two simultaneously.

The new console's UI will be called LiveArea, which has a bunch of vertically navigable home screens and built-in social networking through PlayStation Network. You can jump between games and the LiveArea without losing your progress and comment on your buddies' great feats of mobile gaming.
