The news of the day and the year, in the world of technology and video games, surely has given today in Tokyo. Sony has presented, as had been rumored, its new handheld console , the successor to the PSP and will be the great rival of Nintendo 3DSIn their eagerness to dominate this market. With the name of NGP ( next generation portable ), Sony offers an innovative product, very powerful and trying to distance itself from its competitor model. While the 3Ds will focus on the use of 3D without glasses and offer a catalog of classic Nintendo games themselves (not without technical performance), providing the NGP it is very different. Sony offers a console with a great power that can rival directly, and for the first time with the consoles. Which is already a whole revolution, since until now the laptops supposed a lot less power.
The new Japanese notebook, moves away from 3D to focus on several well-defined pillars. The offering of a device incorporates a great internal and external power, with some really surprising technical characteristics. Enter through the view, from the outset, with a large touchscreen OLED 5 inches. What it gives us good sign that your console will be not only to play, but a great media center in the style of the latest tablets and mobile market, where you can also enjoy movies, videos, photos, surf …
Another point on which the new Sony console sits is comfort, has been sought by an elegant design , fine and seeks comfort in handling. For it has used a much more oval and circular design than the previous laptop. As the company itself and called “Super Oval Design” . And they use much more comfortable materials to the touch, and a better arrangement of the buttons. The presence, as claimed in the previous model, with two analog sticks . Also the presence of an area in the back to be able to support the fingers.
The other pillar of this console, is seeking a full integration with the Internet . For it has created a system similar to the Apple App Store and Android market, where everyone can upload their applications and can be downloaded in the same way. Very interesting this Playstation Suite , which gives good sample of what we pointed out that the NGP is much more than a portable game console. Also, a good example of that is thought to be fully connected to internet console, it has created a new and attractive graphical interface, called LiveArea , fully integrated with Playstation Network , which will allow us to see which friends are online, browse and send messages Among other functions. As if that were not enough, they have filed an application with a high social component, Near , which will let you know at all times (through the use of GPS that is integrated) if users close to the console, to share things, to challenge items … This application is very interesting.
And, as we have said, if for some reason NGP stands out because of its great power. It features an ARM® Cortex ™ -A9 core 4 – core processor and GPU SGX543MP4 +. A lot of power that will have, and that will allow us to enjoy games with the power of PlayStation 3 (as has said Sony itself, and has endeavored to demonstrate with demonstrations games such as Metal Gear and Uncharted), as well Watch high resolution video on your big screen.
A good example of its multimedia features is the presence of two cameras , which together with speakers and microphone , surely enable video conferencing.
So we can use it anywhere, has free WiFi and bluetooth 2.1 and the big news also carry 3G connection , we will allow all internet functions anywhere.
