[gizmodo.com]PSP2 Is As Powerful As A PS3 - Page 13

post #121 of 125
Let's talk about the potential of the touch pad on the back of PSP2, think about the possibilities.... where 3DS brings glassesless 3D to the table, PSP2 brings full front controls with the back touch controls as well.

Will kick it's ass in sales, but will it be better to own? Debatable. Wii > PS3 in sales, but quality of games on PS3 is way way better.

I feel the same way about PSP and DS.

It's clearly not.

Vulcan and I are from a more practical lot, the kind of gamer that wants a handheld that:
  • Lasts several hours on a charge (my DS and GBA did this)
  • Is truly small enough to put in a pocket (we're talking near cell phone sizes here, not a half pound torment on my pocket)
  • Is capable of being fired up in a few moments (I don't have any time to waste on my 15 minute break)

Power and graphics aren't wonderfully important. I also couldn't give a toss if it can run broken OSes. I just want a super light system, with a decent library.



And I did...


No, seriously, I was (am) a small person.
I can't deny the PSP bar form factor being huge in my pocket. I quite hate the size for that.

I'd love the PSP Go if it had a replaceable battery that won't jut out of the whole system.

I also do not like the PSP turn on load time but forgiveable if you always remember to make the system "sleep" with a flick of a button.

I'd appreciate better graphics together with better in game physics and tighter controls.

You can always put "casual" games in this device so it doesn't matter. A lot of casual games doesn't eat much battery as well so your PSP or PSP2 can last probably pretty long.

Casual gamer and want extra battery life? Play "2d casual" games for your handheld.

Feeling a little hardcore? Go full 3D with awesome graphics and tight and complex controls but sacrificing battery life.

The PSP1 can do that but too bad it doesn't have that current trend of the appeal of new interfaces such as touch screen and gyroscopes (w/c hopefully the PSP2 will have not for me but to increase its target market).

You also have the option for swappable small batteries anyway. If you need more than 1 battery, you probably aren't that casual anyway.

IMO, if the PSP2 has a touch screen and gyroscope, it covers almost everything.

I was not a fan of the PSP. With that said I have to ask something.

Who said that for something to be portable it has to fit comfortably in your pocket? That is crazy. Laptops and netbooks are portable computers yet I don't see anyone walking around with them in their pockets.

The Nook Color (awesome by the way) and the Kindle are portanle E-Readers, yet again I don't see many people storing them in their pockets.

In reality the only "portable" thing I know of that many keep in their pockets are cell phones.

I did...I thought that was clear...

"Portable" is relative, and changes over time. As I already said, the first portable phones and laptops were in briefcases...would you consider those "portable" now simply because they can be physically carried around?

My argument remains that cell phone games have raised the bar for portable gaming to such a degree that anything larger than cell phone now has to be well worth the extra size. I can do HD gaming on my iPhone, which is so portable that it fits in my pocket without me knowing it's there...so I do expect some extra special, more than just "PS3 quality power", for me to accept anything larger now.

The laptop comparison is somewhat invalid because there has yet to be a device that can do everything that a laptop can do made smaller than a laptop. I.e., the functions a laptop offers have yet to be compellingly shrunk to a smaller form factor that what we currently have. That will change...phones are already as powerful as PCs from a few short years ago...give us one that really, truly runs MS Office well and the pressure will be on laptops to justify their existence for most people. Not for everyone, mind you...there is always going to be a trade-off between size and compute power. And the same can be said for gaming...some folks will feel the extra PS3-level power justifies a larger size, others of us will not.

Kindles and Nooks...I have to admit, I don't understand them. eBooks can be read on phones and tablets, I read books on my iPhone all the time. I would think that the dedicated e-reader product would have a short life span...except that Amazon is just killing with the Kindle, so clearly I'm misreading something there.
