Sony has just announced their newest handheld system because they apparently didn’t want to wait for E3 when the 3DS was already riding a huge wave of buzz. They’ve released a lot of info about the device, and the highlights include that it has an OLED screen, touch controls, 3G and dual analog controls. That last bit is perhaps the most exciting part.
The downside is that the thing is huge, even bigger than the old PSP, and there’s no cool glasses-free 3D tech like what’s found in the 3DS.
For full details on the new system, head over to Kotaku here. It’s cool, but is it really pushing the envelope enough to compete with the DS and 3DS? I’m not so sure.
