Sony Next Gen Portable specs detailed
New handheld to feature OLED touch screen, 3G, two cameras; slightly smaller than PSP-3000.
It was probably one of the worst-kept secrets in gaming, but after months of speculation, Sony finally unveiled its successor to the PSP
The NGP wasn't priced, but Sony did release a range of specifications for the new machine. The NGP will feature a 16:9 5-inch OLED touch screen, as well as a touch pad on the rear of the device, which is the same size as the front screen. At 182mm x 18.6mm x 83.5mm (width x height x depth), the NGP is slightly smaller than the PSP-3000, but there was no detail released on how heavy the new handheld would be.
Gamers who lamented the lack of a second analog stick on the original PSP will be heartened to know that the NGP does indeed sport twin sticks, as well as Sixaxis motion sensing built into the device. Other notable features include two cameras (front and rear), built-in GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.
The full specs list for the NGP can be found below.
