Sony PSP2 Details Announced in Japan

Watch out Nintendo 3DS, Sony isn’t going to be taking a rest on their handheld upgrades either in 2011!

Due by the 2011 holiday season, a power house new PSP is coming!

Here’s some details :

Going under the codename moniker of  NGP, the PSP 2 packs a 5-inch OLED touchscreen, dual analog sticks, front and rear cameras, a touch-sensitive panel on the back for control (!?) and a quadcore CPU and graphics processor!

And if that isn’t enough, it’s coming with 3G, Bluetooth and GPS, along with wi-fi!  Sounds powerful, but, Sony says not only does it sound powerful — it is!  They say its as powerful as the Sony PS3!
There is also a feature called LiveArea which allows you to search and hook up with nearby players for instant multiplayer fun.

Much like the Nintendo 3DS, we are seeing screen resolution improvements too.  On the PSP2, it is getting nearly 4x the resolution of the current Playstation Portable handheld.

We’ll bring you more as it becomes available!
