Bad: The price is a little out of my league right now.
Comment: This looks amazing! The staggering amount of innovation packed into this handheld is staggering. I can't wait until this baby is released.
Good: 3G connection for online play on the go, best graphics on any portable gaming system, versatile controls, genuine advance in technology
Bad: Price in UK for preorder not currently as competitive as the 3DS, some games will probably just use the touch pad as a gimmick
Comment: Regardless of negativity surrounding the predicted success of this product, will definately be making its way into my pocket. NB. need to make larger pockets
Good: PS3 quality on the move
Bad: No release date or game pricing yet
Comment: Patrick Tate completely misunderstands the NGP by pointlessly comparing it to the 3DS. For starters, the NGP is a hardcore gaming machine, many times more powerful than the 3DS. Rather than fiddly 3D on a tiny screen, Sony are opting for great graphics on a superb, clear, hi-res screen, while trying to offer a home-console quality control system. The 3DS has it's cute and quirky gimmicks and will sell very well. hardcore gamers may prefer to wait for the NGP. It's futile to compare... just back the one you want and enjoy it!
Good: Big Screen, Bringing back games that don't have to be downloaded
Bad: Very bulky, out too late!
Comment: I like how it's going to have a big screen and the fact that it's bringing back games that you can play on it without downloading them at huge prices from the PS Store. However, with too many unnecessary add-ons like the touch sensitive back etc. it will come with a big price tag and low battery life. I think Sony killed the PSP with the PSP Go and I will be sticking with my PSP 3000 even when this comes out. Sorry Sony.
Good: People are dumb enough to buy this over the 3ds by nintendo
Bad: Too many unnessasary add ons like touch sensitive back, touch screen all of which will jus drain your battery,?
Comment: This is just the 3ds but with one screen and not 3d. This doe$ everything nintendo has already done. Sony always copies them like with the playstation move, and now with this. Frontfacing and back facing camra? Nintendo dsi. And what the heck is with the back of it being touch sensitive? Its so dumb! Its just a battery waster! They even stole the touch screen idea from the ds! And thats 5 years old! And download games only? What will the people without wifi do? Do they have to go to starbucks just to get a freaking game? Sure u have 3g but still its still really dumb to go through all that just to get a game. And download time will be awful with 3g connection anyways. Psp phone sucks too btw. Sure theyre the first but sony always finds a way to scew up something they didnt come up with. Im done.
Bad: It will be on sale all the way at Christmas
Comment: this look's AWESOME I can't wait
Good: The amazing quad core processor, the super-high resolution OLED touchscreen display, the cameras, the rear touchpad, the two analogue sticks, new OS, wifi and 3G, etc.....
Bad: Probably quite pricey and battery life may not be brilliant
Comment: The hardware is incredible and definitely will NOT seem dated by the time it is released before the holidays. Handheld devices haven't even got dual core processors yet, never mind QUAD core ones! OLED is one of the best screen technologies in existence, and that 960 x 544 resolution is insanely high.
These specs will still be cutting edge by 2013! Oh, and dedicated handheld gaming IS relevant - just look at how well the DS and PSP have done. Speaking of DS's, the NGP makes the 3DS (which I was excited about being released) look like utter CRAP. It basically DESTROYS the 3DS on EVERY level, and shows that Nintendo's recent products are half-arsed, underpowered junk. The only thing the 3DS has on this is eye-damaging 3D with extremely limited viewing angles on it's low resolution screen.
Good: it has 2 cameras and capable of 3g network speed and wifi
Bad: a bit pricey and the battery life is short
Comment: The sony ngb is a great little device a bit pricy but it is so much better than the psp 1000/2000/3000/go it has 2 anolog sticks instead of 1 it has a camera on the front and back a 5 inch touch screen with a maximum resolution of 960x544 pixels it is compatible with normal psp and psp go games that is why they nick named it the psp2,1 of the downsides of the ngb is because its so powerful it has a small battery life so if you did get one you might want to dim the screen. one of the best and most important features is it has a 3G network capability(it may cost but sony may make it free like the amazon has made the kindle free but that whould be a suprise if they did you may need a 3G sim) and it is able to connect to your home network(free) so if your bored of the rather slow speeds of downloading the new speed of downloading shouldn't bore you any more with 2,3 or 4 times faster(may not be four times faster.)
