This innovative design would present a innovative blend of rich gaming and social connectivity inside a real world situation, made promising by leveraging SCE’s experience from both PSP (PlayStation Portable) and PlayStation 3 (PS3) entertainment systems.
With both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, jointly with a mixture of applications, NGP will facilitate endless potential for users to connect and share with friends wherever they are. Within the device are a range of features that provide a genuinely cutting-edge, next generation ultimate portable entertainment experience.
