    Default What do you want in the PSP2

    http://i.gizmodo.com/5132043/sony-ps...grated-storage

    I say fuck the touchscreen. Gaming + touchscreens = ghey. Keyboard for web browsing and internal storage. I mean I heard they have 64gb MicroSD cards coming to market soon, its not like it'll be a size drain. Better battery, a better sceen, and fast game load times are gonna lynchpins for me if they do it.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    All depends how they wanna take it, I say they should improve the PS3!
    How so? Make it a better media center, the ps3 would have the tv tunner and everything

    You would just get your Psp connected to your PS3 and then you could:
    1- transfer/stream directly to psp
    2- play your psp games on your tv system, using your ps3 control
    3- use ps3 cell's processors to help psp loading time..(wasn't that the idea of cell system?)

    caveats: without ps3 you get nothing else then current psp capabilities...
    But its easier to add all that to ps3 then it is to psp.

    So focus psp into being a BETTER Handheld, then fail trying to be a do it all thingy...

    Touchpad is meh, but a accelerometer, would be really appealing, not the main feature, but just a addbonus that developers could take in consideration that it has.

    No touchscreen, period.

    Actual support from Sony.

    On that note, John Koller either needs to step up his game, or get fired.

    This architecture is not fixed, if you have a computer, PS3 and HDTV which have Cell processors they can co-operate on problems. They've been talking about this sort of thing for years of course but the Cell is actually designed to do it.
    In other words, making the PSP utilize of the cell processor power of a PS3 to do some of the tasks required to render/load PSP games.
    Decreasing loading time, increasing quality.

    Its just utilizing the techonology the way they devoped it to be used.

    The Cell is just a processor, nothing else. Stop talking about it as if it was some kind of messiah.
    You -cannot- have the Cell process for the PSP because that's not how computers work and even if they was possible, there just isn't enough bandwidth in USB 2.0 / 802.11g to make it possible.
    Unless of course you are using the PSP as a terminal device and having the PS3 do all the work for it, then that would be stupid as fuck because you would be constantly tied to it, exactly the same way how workstations are tied to a server, sorta like using Novell Client. But again, for realtime audiovisual processing, that wouldn't work due to the bandwidth limitations.
    The cheap way out would be to enable remote play on the Cell for games as well (PSP would only be for audio/video output) but ask anyone who has tried Remote Play whether for simple audio/video playback or playing a PS1 game: It's laggy.

    The Cell has been developed to be a processor just like a PPC (well, it is a PPC after all), x86 or any sort of chip that processes things, whether it's the chip in a router or the chip in a sound card. The co-processing thing is nothing new and is the same bloody thing as a sound card and a central processing unit.

    Putting a Cell in a TV is no different than it is right now. It's just that instead of having a shitty chip doing the work, they can opt to use a more powerful one.

    Of course we've already seen this functionality used with Playstation@Home. What you may not realise though, is that the same thing can be done with ANY CPU, and that it's completely unfeasible for gaming purposes (or any other real-time processing for that matter).

    As for what I want in my PSP2, well I'd like a few decent games to put in it...

    I also agree that I'd like them to focus on making it a better portable gaming device. Portable gaming isn't about having the best graphics or the most FMV, sometimes you have to sacrifice processing power or media size for better power management.

    I don't want portable gaming to become just a smaller version of console gaming, I'd actually prefer that they keep coming out with older style games.

    I'm thinking...something like the Sidekick, because the PSP as of now is useless as a browser.

    Although, that will probably boost its price...oh well.

    *sigh*

    sony doesn't need a new iteration right now. what they need are publishers and developers who are willing to make games on both the psp and the ps3.

    and lower their prices somehow. blu-ray ain't anywhere affordable.
    and help the industry to fight game piracy.
    and promote peace on earth.

    Cause compared to Nintendo and Microsoft platforms, the PSP and PS3 have a nice collection of games, while the other two have libraries.

    Make new games for the PSP?
    Why? The DS has a bigger install base and costs less to develop for. Plus they don't even have to try and make a good game for it to sell relatively well on that platform.
    The bigger developers are focusing on the PS3/X360/Wii.


    What the PSP 2 needs.

    Option 1:
    Go cheap and focus on games only, like the DS. But give it 8GB of internal storage capacity and make all games available via a digital store on day one. The iPod is successful because it's a device heavily focused on what it is supposed to do (music and light video) and thanks the iTunes Music Store.
    Make PSP 2 + Playstation Store what Apple did with iPod + iTMS.


    Option 2:
    Option 1+
    Make it a better multimedia device. Right now, the PSP is an awful handheld for music, videos and internet browsing. (Reasons for that are a couple of paragraphs below.)
    Sony needs to release the SDK for free (look at how Apple were smart enough to release the iPhone SDK at no additional cost and now there's a shit ton of applications that everyone can easily use).



    The current PSP isn't a failure, it's just not as successful as the DS, because it doesn't do a good job at what it does. It's a shitty multimedia device (shit battery life, costly Memory Stick media, shit input for text and too bulky) and a half-assed gaming handheld device. If I want to play home console games, I prefer to enjoy full versions of the game on home consoles, not shitty ass ports that take forever to load and drain the battery like blood sucking leeches all with really bad control schemes. This means: More Lumines, Puzzle Quest and Loco Roco, less Metal Gear Portable Ops and Burnout.
