Description


The PSP 2 is Sony's heavily rumored successor to the psp 1 & Go, codenamed the NGP for "Next Generation Portable". An offical reveal was on January 27, 2011 at a PlayStation conference in Japan. Some of the new features includes, dual analog numb sticks on both sides of the device, two multi-touch screens, (one on the front and one on the back), to alter game play mechanics, and a new game medium, a small flash memory based card dedicated to NGP software. Unfortunately there isn't a specific release date or price, but Sony did say that we should expect the NGP near the end of 2011.
