    Well there's a difference between the Experia Play (aka PSPhone) and this one. The Experia Play is some new PSP1, you can also phone with.. That's kinda like the NGage I think.. Only much slicker and you dont have to use it like you're phoning with a taco! But don't know if there's still a market for that, when you know that this NGP is coming as well? Perhaps when they include the Android Market?

    The PSP/Phone thing was apparently something else, its reasonable to expect a fair degree of overlap in the technologies in portable gaming and phone devices.

    Looks like a bigger PSP to me
    Spec wise, looks like it has some nice touches but I'll wait to see what they charge for it first. Cant see how it can do PS3 quality on a small screen, wouldnt that be kind of pointless?

    They Say its going to be sold at a loss, I'm guessing £330 on launch, dropping to £290 3 months later. As sony usually do. if its really ps3 graphics then I might get it for that price

    I can never get around to playing games on touch screen, it's stupid to me. I want real controllers nintendo 8 bit style on a portable! Call me old fashioned or whatever but that's how I roll.

    :lol:

    I've lived with people who have PSPs and DS' and I was like "ooh cool" but got bored quicker than I do with whatever games are on a new phone when I get it.

    Best game on DS is when you shout the colours at it, but that hardly requires the technology within.

    I wonder which kind of anti-piracy they will have built in this time. The ps3 wasn't cracked (for mass) in years, but the PSP is in the top of cracked consoles.
