Sony NGP

Sony has announced it's newest portable gaming system, the NGP. It looks impressive for sure but will it actually give the Nintendo DS competition? I don't know.

I watched a video of game play and I like the idea you can tilt the system, touch the screen, use thumbsticks and buttons to control the game. That is pretty sweet. The graphics are to die for.

The list of new features is impressive as well. It'll offer 3G and wifi, awesome for those with a 3G data plan(?). You can read it all on the official Sony blog: http://tinyurl.com/6fyshdw However, this does mean all new software if you buy this. Sure it says it can play the titles from the Playstation store but you are out of luck if you have the actual game disc. I like the idea of the games being flash drives so all DLC and saves are stored there and not on the NGP. Memory has always been a bit of a problem for the PSP.

Of course the BIG question...how much? Sony isn't really talking about that yet. It's due out at the end of this year so I'll guess November to get those Christmas sales in.
