Five bucks says the price will blow the 3DS' $250 out of the flippin' water.

Not too pleased with the fact they jumped on the touch screen bandwagon. I just know it's going to lead to gimmicky interactions in the game. They should have left well enough alone IMO.

Not taking that bet, it'll DEFINITELY be at least $299.99

What Sony seems to fail to realise, is that the DS succeeds purely because of Pokemon.
This will undoubtedly be better, especially with the flash cards instead of discs, but there still won't be Pokemon.

I hope it can play old psp games so i can sell my console to help save up for this.

who bets that NGP stands for something like Next Gen Playstation or Next Gen Portable

Yeah... no.

Nintendo keeps succeeding because they innovate, they simplify it, and most of all they appeal to both casual and hardcore games. This is the perfect example; Sony have only just now brought out a touchscreen while Nintendo is jumping on 3D.

Sony does keep the better hand at graphics and power, but its nothing if you can't release good IPs and keep developers on it. Nintendo always offers something NEW, plus has the franchises and developers in order to support it and keep it at the front of the market. Pokemon is one on them, but ONLY one. Big names like Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda and others drive the system forward.

It looks so good, sadly the 3DS has a KILLER line-up.

I hope sony can reveal much, much more games. I wonder if the graphics are better or worse?

Either way if it's priced higher than a 3DS, sony is gonna have a rough start (as usual).

I hope there will undoubtedly be numerous changes to the final product

I've got a feeling that the final PSP2 will be a bit different than the weird name called "NGP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Note: OMG...I can't decide between 3DS and PSP2...I will wait and see and also do a lot of research before I decide to buy one...

chaotic because a five inch screen between a dual shock controller with front and rear touch screens would be awkward.

Shadow of Death I think RCG meant it'll be way over the $250 starting price of the 3DS. I hope they don't charge more than their PS3s though, that'll be hard to sell

Sony was pretty smart, rather than build up a huge reveal at E3 they decided to show it now hoping to hit the 3DS sales even if a little.

Well know I feel sold, however I also felt that way with the original psp, and the DS was so much better. If this can have ps3 games AND cross-gaming with this and PS3, I'm sold.

Maybe now I can kick [link name=Agent Mo]/members/Agent+Mo/" class="mention[/link] ass in Uncharted

@Nagare - I said 'at least'. Meaning it could very well be more like $100 more.

Really wish they didn't bother with touchscreen though. It'll be like the SIXAXIS most likely, a generally unused add-on feature, only this time it'll jack up the price enough on its own.

Stupid sony, they should just give up the handheld biz.
And the price will probably be around... 599 american dollars
