Kaz Hirai, chairman of Sony, speaks in vague terms about pricing in an interview with PCWorld. They've supposedly thought about the pricing for a while, wanting to avoid going "off the deep end", which I take to mean that they don't want to price themselves out of the market.


It will be a miracle if they don't price themselves out of the market.  I say this thing will be $400 minimum.

I find it funny that people will spend more than that on a jailbroken phone (or $200 + a $1500 contract), but to ask $400 for a new gaming system is just madness!  Not that I want to pay $400 either, but I also don't have an iPhone/pad or any of that stuff.

Looking over the specs, some of the more tech-savvy folks I know are concerned about this thing becoming a portable nuclear reactor.  Hope they have a decent cooling solution.

since there's no UMD drive, Sony could possibly be re-releasing some past games on the NGP card. also mentioned:

Quote
If you have a library of UMD games already, will you need to rebuy your collection either on NGP cards or via PSN? In response to this, Sony says that it's currently investigating the various possibilities and has nothing to announce at present. There are currently no plans to offer a "UMD Reader" device.

I don't have a lot of UMD's, and I have a sneaking suspicion that won't change now that I've read that.

They said the same thing with the GO and it never happened.  I would only get those UMDs if you are planning on keeping your PSP.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but thank God for hackers. I was willing to rebuy ALL of my UMDs and Sony/Sony's partners gave me no chance to do so. I couldn't even legally download titles off the British PSN, which has several UMD based titles that the US does not. I even sent e-mails to the publishers and Sony. Now that the PSPgo has been fully hacked, the landscape is completely different and all legacy games can be played.  Thank you, Prometheus. Screw you, Sony.

Ugh, please no. Rebellion's gotten away with its crappy gameplay due to license and history, but not anymore.

One interesting thing I've heard about on gaming podcasts is that every single one of the NGP developer kits are actually sliders, similar to the GO and earlier pictures/mock ups of the NGP design.

I suspect the current, very PSP1-like design is a cost saving measure.

I can definitely see that being true. The much smaller form factor would probably have significantly increased the cost. Although the finalized size is larger than even the original PSP, I've decided that I'm fine with that. I really only used my PSP and DS at my home or a hotel on business trips, so having a "pocketable" PSP isn't an issue for me.

Dead in America.  In Japan, the PSP outsells every other console (including the Wii) week in and week out.

And I still play PS2 games all the time on the PS3.

+1

Well at least I did, before my PS3 60GB died.
Was pleasantly surprised to see that some of my old PS2 games still had active online communities playing!

When you spend $60+ on a game this generation, it's nice to know in the back of your mind it'll still work come next generation. It's one thing I have to give the PC major credit for - I still have games over a decade old I play every now and then.. and they still work with every new version of Windows. If I had to keep every computer I've had around just to play "last generation" games I'd already be out of space.

Third party licensees claim that the NGP will defintiely hit Europe this year.  take that for what you will, since it's not SCEA saying it, and they're even downplaying the claims.

new interview: http://www.mcvuk.com/features/894/INTERVIEW-Andrew-House

Quote
One thing we learnt from PSP, is that we want to have simultaneous delivery in digital and physical for NGP. Just to clarify that, all games that appear physically will be made available digitally. Not necessarily all games have to be made available physically. And having the option of a digital-only method affords more creative risk-taking, and thatís because you donít-have that in-built risk of physical inventory.

that should make Birth by Sleep fans who own a GO happy.

Hey - what did I do? slywink  I'd make a similarly derogatory remark, but the PSP CeeKay actually sounds like a pretty cool name - at least better than NGP or Vita.

Yeah... not sure about the name. But heck, the most popular console was the Wii this round.

It's actually the Playstation Vita (PSV), keeping in with the 3 letter acronyms.

What scares me more than the name is the crappy bubble icons for the OS. It really doesn't bode well in showing Sony's attitude towards OS and software design. I'm glad the XMB is gone, it has outlived its usefulness, but the bubbles are only a small step better. Hopefully they'll have the ability to completely update the OS.

Now, show me Monster Hunter PSV and Killzone Liberation PSV and they've sold me.  Oh and a sequel to Gurumin, Patapon, and more.

at least with the Wii you can make humorous references, like 'I played with it so long my Wii overheated' or 'it's been a while since I've felt like using my Wii, I may have to dust it off' or 'I think I'm just going to sell my Wii so it at least gets played with'.

Yeah for 3G service.  I'd say it's pretty much certain it's a monthly thing like cell phone or iPads.

The US Playstation site has some info about the story for Uncharted: Golden Abyss:

Quote
Uncover the dark secret behind the 400-year-old massacre of a Spanish expedition as Nathan Drake follows the murderous trail of an ancient and secret Spanish sect. Caught in the middle of a rivalry between Jason Dante - his old friend - and Marisa Chase - the granddaughter of an archeologist who has mysteriously vanished without a trace - Nathan Drake races into the treacherous river basins, undiscovered temple ruins and karst caverns of Central America in search of a legendary lost city, only to find himself pushed to the edge of the Golden Abyss.
