The NGP: Sony’s Next Great Product

Okay, that title is a little misleading; the actual name is “Next Generation Portable”, but nonetheless, it is finally here. The PSP wasn’t exactly a best seller for Sony, so it was about time they got a new handheld out to fight off the success of the DS and now the 3DS. I’m going to tell you just a little bit about the NGP and how it has improved on the PSP.

Let’s start with the screen. The NGP comes equipped with a 5 inch OLED touch screen with a 960 x 544 resolution. Compare this to the 3DS’ 3.53 inch, 800 x 240 pixel, 3D capable top screen and 3.02 inch, 340 x 240 pixel bottom touch screen. It’s a pretty powerful screen for the NGP, capable of producing current generation graphics, or at least comes close.

Now let’s look on the inside of this beast. The NGP boasts a quad-core ARM Cortext-A9 CPU and an SGX543MP4+ graphics processor. Now I really have no idea what those are exactly, but I do know that they are pretty damn powerful for a handheld. It also has built in Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, and Bluetooth for all your connectivity needs. Lastly, it has an accelerometer and gyroscope built in as well. Sony really tried to cram in as much as they could.

Next we go to the outside. The NGP comes with a rear touch panel, 2 cameras (one on front and one on back), and 2 microphones.

I saved everyones favorite addition for last since I know that nearly every PSP owner has been begging for this since the original came out: 2 thumbsticks. Finally!

TWO THUMBSTICKS!

    Sony will never be able to pry the hand-held market from the hands of Nintendo.

      Sony will never be able to pry the hand-held market from the hands of Nintendo.

      Obviously, since Sony only has the gamer audience while Nintendo has the soccer mom and middle schooler audience
