As you step out of the PS3 and PS2 backward compatibility is confirmed news that the successor to the Sony PSP, codenamed Next Generation Portable (NGP), will support downloadable PSP games.
This is thanks to a software emulator that allows you to turn the upscaling, while you can use both analog sticks of the console in order to fully enjoy the best titles of this current generation of portable consoles (which is almost over with the output of NGP and 3DS). Eurogamer says he saw Resistance: Retribution running on the new console.
As for the official name for the NGP, PS Vita is a possibility. Several users found words and details in the HTML of the page for the official Sony E3 indicating that PS Vita could be the first name of the console. This is consistent with information that has been leaked to the web, and marketing materials specifically unnamed sources cited by Destructoid. Chances are that next week during E3 convention find out whether the information presented is accurate so far as well as the official name for this device.
(Sony promised much with ps3, gave little and eventually came to nothing)
Sony has promised that NGP games will have an experience as rewarding as it is on PS3 thanks to its powerful processor and graphics chip. Its processor is quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 and graphics chip is a multi-core PowerVR SGX543MP4 which is four times stronger than that found in the PSP.
This console will also feature a 5-inch OLED screen, two micro-levers similar to simulate the Dual Shock experience, cameras on the front and rear, and a two-finger multitouch pad on the back of the machine that could open the doors to new ways to control games. A Sixaxis equivalent with a gyroscope and accelerometer will also be available to control gameplay and inclined moving the console.
As for 3G connectivity capabilities can also expect Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR and although it is not clear if users will have to pay extra for 3G services, presumably around here will be so (as with 3g and cell phones). It also has a GPS, and a new application called Near that allow players to see if there are other players around, they are playing and add them as friends. The NGP still has no release date or price, but is expected to be ready by “late 2011″ for Japan.
en la red
Hopefully not as backward compatibility with the Black Beast of Sony, which promised much, got bit and on top soon gave no such support (everything is slow after costs)
