Sony NGP Specs: Rich Games and Social Connectivity

As we all know, the world is going nuts for Sony’s latest and greatest handheld device, the Sony PSP2 or as it is also known, the NGP. We have already informed you of some of the specs of the device and also that it incorporates an ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor.

Now we are letting you know about some of the rich games and the social connectivity featured on the device but first let’s just have a recap on its specs. It has as we mentioned earlier an ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor with the GPU of SGX543MP4+, it has a 5” touch-screen OLED with the resolution of 960 x 544, it has front and rear facing cameras, front and rear touch-pads and of course WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. Something else that hasn’t had too much of a mention is the dual-analogue sticks, this will allow for a much wider range of games to hit the console in the same way that it did for the PS3. For more specs, head to Sony’s official website.

We are reading that the NGP will arrive with us late in 2011; it has a combination of rich gaming and social connectivity. From seeing the games it was running at the Tokyo event it definitely looks amazing, the graphics aren’t quite up to the same dizzy standards shown on the PS3 but they are pretty close!

The fact that you can connect anywhere just about any time is a real selling feature. You can read more about the specs, features and if you would like to read the press release then you can here but you will need to translate the page.

Each game title on the NGP will have a space named ‘LiveArea’, this will be used to inform you of the latest information on developers, games and you will also be able to view an activity log. This will give real time communication amongst all connected users. You can also read more about this over at IGN.com where they have written an easy-to-follow article on the features of LiveArea along with a bit about the specs. Sony has been kind enough to explain many of the features that you can expect to see on the NGP, you can read it all here and also why not take a peek at their gallery of images for the NGP or watch a little video.

The real question that is in everyone’s minds after Sony has dropped this bomb on us is, do I get a Nintendo 3DS in March or do I wait until the end of 2011 for the NGP? What will you do? Let us know in the comments below.
