Sony: NGP will not replace PSP

Sony: NGP will not replace PSP14 February 2011 15:40:09

The recently announced new portable gaming console from Sony , the NGP, will not replace its predecessor the PSP, it has been claimed.

Speaking to Edge magazine, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment worldwide studios, said that the two consoles will instead exist alongside one another.

Computerandvideogames.com quotes him as telling the news provider: "It can't replace a platform that has already been on sale for seven years now."

"I think the NGP needs time to mature and get adopted by users," he added. "So, for the time being, both platforms will coexist."

Mr Yoshida also confirmed that, with its superior technology, the NGP will be priced higher than the PSP.

"In terms of pricing, we can't sell the NGP for the same price as a PSP. The PSP has become very affordable and popular, especially with younger generations," he said.

The NGP will feature a five-inch OLED screen, touch sensitivity on both the front screen and back panel and wireless and 3G connectivity.ADNFCR-2752-ID-800403194-ADNFCR
