Sony reveals NGP will have multiple SKUs, 3G not standard, Wi-fi IS standard
Sony has revealed that their next gen handheld system, PSP2, currently codenamed NGP, will have multiple models with different functionalities, and will be differently priced. They have also revealed that 3G is NOT standard, it’ll be in only one model. Wi-fi, however, will be standard to all NGP SKUs.
“The first thing to clarify, which I’m not sure the presentation did a perfect job of doing today, is that all of the devices will have Wi-Fi capability; a separate SKU will have 3G,” PlayStation Europe boss Andrew House told EuroGamer.
“So the user gets a choice. Wi-Fi is available wherever, which clearly is the most important aspect of connectivity and that connected experience; 3G will be a subset of that”
House also confirmed there will be a cost for the user for 3G services.
“You’ll hear more from us around that aspect of the strategy as we get closer to launch,” he added.
