Looking over launch titles, the most popular between the two would have to be;
Lego Star Wars, Nintendogs & Cats, PES2k11, Pilotwings, RE, Rayman, Ridge Racer, SF IV

CoD, Hot Shots Golf, Killzone, LBP, Resistance, Uncharted, WipeOut.

The PSP2's line up appeals a lot more to me than Nintendo's.

I like both lineups, and I'm probably going to get both handhelds, but I'm more interested in the PSP2 at this point. I just hope it gets 3rd party support like the 3DS....

The only problem with the article is that you are assuming that the PSP2 (or whatever they end up calling it) will come in at a 300.00 or under price range. The only reason that Sony hasn't mentioned a price is because it is going to actually be closer to 400.00 with all of the tech involved. Also, I'm not a Nintendo fanboy or anything but by the time Sony releases this, the 3DS will have had at least 9 or 10 months on the market and probably a 10 million user base. It may be "game over" for Sony before they even get this thing out of the gate.

I seem to recall reading an article saying that the 3DS flash cart could go up to 8gigs, but I may just be imagining things.

I also think judging launch lineups at this point is silly. Most of the games listed for PSP2 are demos of existing games running on the system, we won't know what will release for it for several more months, and the big hitters of the 3DS lineup as announced so far are coming in the months after launch anyway.

It will certainly be interesting to see where developers land between the two, and where specific franchises will land. For instance, the Japanese success of these two consoles will depend heavily on the home for the next Monster Hunter, in my opinion. Western developers still see handhelds as a kiddie market, it will also be interesting to see if either of these two consoles can grab their attention, and if so, will anyone even care?

Monster Hunter has always been on Sony consoles and handhelds up until Tri, and the games pretty much dominate the PSP market. I like my DS and I'm looking forward to the 3DS, but I think playing Monster Hunter on the 3DS would just be awkward to be honest.

I think Capcom will probably release a spin-off (probably titled Monster Hunter 3D) for the 3DS, but it's handheld home will probably always be the PSP/PSP2.

And now that the PSP2 has two analogs, Monster Hunter would be perfect for it.

Under TOUCH SCREEN for the PSP2 it says:
1 front, 1 rear (multiple tactile)

What does this mean?

Well...interesting....Wait a minute Sony, considering the using of flash media for games,the battery life should be longer than 5 hours despite OLED displays which should also use less battery...

Something is not right with PSP2....Come on..Sony will ALMOST ALWAYS SUFFER the problem of lack of good games during the launch period unless they bring back UMD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....

What the hell am I gonna do with my existing UMD games???

Some say, inclusion of UMD is still on the table at extra price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Aussies would have to pay extra rip-off price at over $650....

Sony doesn't get "lunch" periods XD

Also umd's where the worst thing to happen to PSP. They where slow, delicate, large, wasted battery and where a failure, I'm glad that their gone. Yes there is a problem about psp games on psp2 but I'm guessing that if you show your games to a local gamestop or something they'll give you a code to download that game on your new NGP and give them the umd.

I don't know how they did it with the Psp go.

That is a nice list, but I see some potential errors. The 3DS has accelerometers and while the resolution on the top screen is 800 x 240, 400 x 240 is allocated for each eye. So games utilizing 3D will only be 400 x 240 max. Also I would recommend changing 'location tracking' to 'preloaded applications/features.' That way you could add e-shop, Agumented Reality, Mii studios, etc. for the 3DS, and GPS, Trophy support, (more to be revealed), for the NGP.
