Betcha didn't think this day would come, but it finally has. Sony has just come clean with its next-generation PlayStation Portable. It's actually codenamed NGP and will revolve around five key concepts: Revolutionary User Interface, Social Connectivity, Location-based Entertainment, Converging Real and Virtual (augmented) Reality. It will be compatible with the PlayStation Suite.

Specs include a 5-inch touchscreen OLED display with 960 x 544 resolution, dual analog sticks (not nubs as on the current generation), 3G, WiFi, GPS, a rear-mounted touchpad, the same accelerometer / gyroscope motion sensing as in the PlayStation Move, an electronic compass, and cameras on both the front and back. Oh, and the CPU is described as "the most advanced" in its class. Available this holiday season. Wait... what?!

...

Games will come on "new media," not UMD anymore, but we're unclear on what sort of flash memory is being used. Sony's rather proud of the fact it's offering the world's first dual analog stick combo on a portable device, though we're more geeked about the quadrupling of pixel count from the original PSP.

Sony's live event has been graced by demos of some pretty popular games, including Killzone, Resistance, Little Big Planet, and Uncharted -- with the latter serving as a demo platform to show off how the NGP's rear touchpad can be used to more intuitively climb up some vines. That touch panel on the back is the same size as the front OLED display and is "mapped" directly under it, which is allowing for some pretty sophisticated stuff when using the two simultaneously.

The new console's UI will be called LiveArea, which has a bunch of vertically navigable home screens and built-in social networking (presumably through PSN). You can jump between games and the LiveArea without losing your progress and comment on your buddies' great feats of mobile gaming.

Is this the one that's a smartphone/portable gaming system combo, or is that yet to come?

No, the Playstation Phone was supposed to be something else all together, but I'm not sure the status of that device (it could be shelved all together at this point).

I'm sure they'd announce it tonight in Tokyo if they were going to bring it out, as Sony is having a pretty big keynote there as I type. So maybe.

Yea, it looks like it might be worth it. I never got a PSP or PSPGo, but I might be interested in this.

I definitely was interested in the PSP, but then the PSPGo came out and I just had to scratch my head at the concept. It looks like they are going back to what works with this one. Plus, the power inside that thing is insane for a handheld.
