Respected gaming magazine Edge recently got a chance to try out Sony’s new handheld, currently titled NGP- we, and everyone else, like to call it PSP2.
Anyway, Edge praised the system a lot, saying that the system is slimmer and sexier than the PSP. They also said the analog sticks are the “best ever implemented in a portable device.” Not that their are many portable devices with analog sticks to name of, but still, it’s good to hear the praise.
They also said that the OLED screen more than makes up for the system’s large size. They also said the system’s super oval shape was “very comfortable”, “robust” and “high quality.”
“Based on our hands-on time with the device following the presentation in Tokyo, we can confirm that Sony’s ‘Next Generation Portable’ feels considerably larger than previous PSP models,” said the magazine.
“Despite the larger dimensions, the handheld console is actually thinner than a PSP,” it adds. “It’s hard to believe such power is contained in such a slim form factor, especially without giving off any heat.”
They went on gushing over the system, praising its dual thumbsticks the most. “The analogue sticks are the best ever implemented in a portable device, giving the feel of using a genuine DualShock controller, with all the granularity of input you’d expect.”
Stay tuned for more info.
