(SCE) offers an unparalleled combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context, made possible by leveraging SCE’s experience from its acclaimed console and handheld entertainment systems. Blurring the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, PS Vita enables revolutionary gaming experiences with dual analog sticks, front and rear cameras, front multi-touch display, multi-touch rear pad, GPS, six-axis motion sensors, and three-axis electronic compass.

Among the titles in development for PS Vita are offerings from some of the biggest franchises as well as a myriad of original titles.

  • 960 x 544 resolution multi-touch 5-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) front display
  • Multi-touch pad on the rear of the device
  • Dual analog sticks
  • Front and rear facing cameras with high-framerate capability for superior motion tracking and augmented reality (AR)
  • Six-axis motion sensing system (three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer) and three-axis electronic compass

    • “Activity” logs the latest accomplishments from people playing the same games
  • Full PlayStation Trophy Support
  • Play PSP (PlayStation Portable) titles, minis and video from PlayStation Store

・Stunning OLED and Revolutionary User Interface

PS Vita incorporates a beautiful multi-touch 5-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) front display. A high-performance CPU / GPU combined with OLED enables rich, visually striking graphics never seen before on a portable entertainment system, for both games and other digital entertainment content. The new system also incorporates a unique multi-touch pad on the rear, and together with the front touch display, PS Vita offers new game play allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through “touch, grab, trace, push and pull” moves of the fingers.

・Super Oval Design and Dual Analog Sticks

While succeeding the basic design philosophy of PSP, PS Vita adopts the Super Oval Design form factor, created to fit comfortably in users’ hands. For the first time, a portable entertainment system will feature two analog sticks, which enable a wider range of game genres to be brought into the portable experience.
・LiveArea™

Every game title for PS Vita will be provided with a space called “LiveArea™” where users can share the fun and excitement with other players. Users will have access to the latest information of games provided from SCE and 3rd party developers and publishers through PlayStation Network. Additionally, PS Vita users will be able to view an “Activity” log that is constantly updated with accomplishments from users who are playing the same game, which in turn can trigger active real-time communication among users.

・near

SCE will also provide location-based services on PS Vita as part of the basic features utilizing PlayStation Network. The new application called “near,” developed specifically for this service and the network, will be pre-installed in the system to let users find out what their friends in the vicinity are playing now or what they were playing recently. Users can meet their friends and new players virtually, regardless of what games they are playing, simply by sharing their game information across different dimensions of time and distance.

・New Game Medium

PS Vita adopts a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated to PS Vita software titles. Taking advantage of flash memory, this innovative card can store full game titles plus save data and add-on game content. By adopting a flash memory based card, SCE will be able to provide game cards with higher capacity in the future, allowing developers to store more game data to deliver rich and immersive games.




Tokyo, June 7, 2011 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) (PCH-1000 series) as the official platform name for the next generation portable entertainment system (codename: NGP). Wi-Fi model will be available for 24,980 yen (including tax) in Japan, $249 in US and €249 in Europe, 3G/Wi-Fi model will be available for 29,980 yen (including tax) in Japan, $299 in US and €299 in Europe and successively launch in global market starting the end of 2011.

"Vita", which means "Life" in Latin, was chosen as the most appropriate name for the next generation portable entertainment system as it enables a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context. SCE is aiming to transform every aspect of user's daily life into an entertainment experience.

PS Vita incorporates a beautiful 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode (OLED) as the front display and a unique multi-touch pad on the rear. Together with the front touch screen and the rear touch pad, PS Vita offers new game play experiences never before seen on any device, allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" finger motions. Also PS Vita features two analog sticks which enable a wider range of game genres to be brought into the portable experience, such as shooters, action games, and fighting games. Exciting and attractive new titles are scheduled to be released from SCE Worldwide Studios, including "GRAVITY DAZE", "Uncharted Golden Abyss", "Little Deviants", "Hot Shots Golf", "Reality Fighter", "Hustle Kings", "ModNation Racers", "Wipeout 2048" and "Super Stardust Delta," as well as from a broad range of third party game developers and publishers, which will deliver value only possible on PS Vita.

Also, by having both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, together with various applications, PS Vita will enable infinite possibilities for users to "encounter," "connect," "discover," "share" and "play" with friends wherever they are. On January 27, 2011, SCE announced the first PS Vita application, "near", which will come pre-installed. It will let users discover what games PS Vita users in the vicinity are or were recently playing, as well as let users share their game information. "near" also enables location-based gaming features such as "gifting," in which a user can access virtual game-related items that other users are sharing, through checking in at geographic locations that others have also visited. The virtual items can include content unlocked from games, such as character costumes, weapons, and treasures. Sharing these items between users adds a unique dimension to the portable gaming experience on PS Vita while enhancing the social connectivity among the PS Vita community.

Additionally, PS Vita will come pre-installed with a newly developed application called "Party." "Party" is an innovative application for a portable entertainment system which enables users to enjoy voice chat or text chat not only during online gaming, but also when users are playing different games or using different applications such as internet browser. Through "Party", which offers a new form of social networking, and "near", which enables users to share their game information with other users anywhere, anytime, users can dramatically expand the boundaries of interactive communication.

Also a tutorial application called "Welcome Park," developed specifically to guide every user about PS Vita's brand new user interface such as the front touch display and the multi-touch pad on the rear, will come pre-installed. By playing "Welcome Park", users can easily become accustomed to the three dimension-like finger motions used on PS Vita.

SCE will vigorously promote PS Vita towards the launch as the next generation portable entertainment platform and work towards expanding the portable gaming market.

SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES ITS NEXT GENERATION PORTABLE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

Ultimate Portable Entertainment System Makes Its Debut This Year, Further Expanding the PlayStation® Business in the Portable Gaming Market

Tokyo, January 27, 2011 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced its next generation portable entertainment system (codename: NGP), which delivers the ultimate portable entertainment experience. NGP will make its debut at the end of the year 2011.

NGP is designed to offer unparalleled interactive entertainment that is only possible on PlayStation®. This new system offers a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context, made possible by leveraging SCE’s experience from both PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and PlayStation®3 (PS3®) entertainment systems.

Deep and immersive gaming is at the core of PlayStation’s DNA, and NGP is the latest embodiment of this vision. By having both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, together with various applications, NGP will enable infinite possibilities for users to “encounter,” “connect,” “discover,” “share” and “play” 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.

・Stunning OLED and Revolutionary User Interface

NGP incorporates a beautiful multi-touch 5-inch organic light emitting display (OLED) as the front display. A high-performance CPU / GPU combined with OLED enables rich, visually striking graphics never seen before on a portable entertainment system, for both games and other digital entertainment content. The new system also incorporates a unique multi-touch pad on the rear, and together with the front touch display, NGP offers new game play allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through “touch, grab, trace, push and pull” moves of the fingers.


・Super Oval Design and Dual Analog Sticks

While succeeding the basic design philosophy of PSP, NGP adopts the Super Oval Design form factor, created to fit comfortably in users’ hands. For the first time, a portable entertainment system will feature two analog sticks, which enable a wider range of game genres to be brought into the portable experience.


・LiveArea™

Every game title for NGP will be provided with a space called “LiveArea™” where users can share the fun and excitement with other players. Users will have access to the latest information of games provided from SCE and 3rd party developers and publishers through PlayStation Network. Additionally, NGP users will be able to view an “Activity” log that is constantly updated with accomplishments from users who are playing the same game, which in turn can trigger active real-time communication among users.


・Near

SCE will also provide location-based services on NGP as part of the basic features utilizing PlayStation Network. The new application called “Near,” developed specifically for this service and the network, will be pre-installed in the system to let users find out what their friends in the vicinity are playing now or what they were playing recently. Users can meet their friends and new players virtually, regardless of what games they are playing, simply by sharing their game information across different dimensions of time and distance.





・New Game Medium

NGP adopts a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated for NGP software titles. Taking advantage of the flash memory feature, this innovative card can store the full software titles plus add-on game content or the game save data directly on to the card. By adopting a flash memory based card, SCE will be able to provide game cards with higher capacity in the future, allowing developers to store more game data to deliver rich and immersive games.


NGP will also come equipped with two cameras on its front and rear, as well as three motion sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass, all of which are designed to enable users to enjoy the world of entertainment that is linked with real life experiences.

PlayStation®Suite (PS Suite), announced today, will also closely coordinate with NGP. The newly developed and released game content for Android™ based portable devices can also be enjoyed on NGP. As a result, users will have access to not only the most leading-edge content, but also some of the more casual experiences that typify the mobile market place.

SCE will vigorously promote NGP towards the launch as the next generation portable entertainment platform and deploy various measures to further expand the portable gaming market.

Some stuff. It is really nice to hold, the screen is absolutely amazing. I mean the best I have ever seen on a portable device. The analogue sticks are actually better than the ones on DS3, but they are a bit uncomfortable because of the position. Back touch is interesting, but none of the games really used it so much. It maps directly to the screen, you can use it in lieu of the touch screen and it may be used for L2/R2. It supports a maximum of 5 simultaneous inputs as does the front screen.

The bottom of the device is actually bigger than it needs to be because the analogues would be completely unusable if it were as small as possible.

The way I see it, it will launch for a reasonable price when compared to smartphones and comparable touch screen devices (iPod Touch), but it won't be cheaper than the 3DS in the US. It will be more competitive in the rest of the world though.

That was the best conference Sony had in a long time, let's recap the pros and cons:

Pros:
+ Dual Analogs!
+ Capacitive front touchscreen and rear pad
+ Flash/PSN dual release for major titles
+ PSP/PS1/Minis BC confirmed
+ Trophies
+ PlayStation Suite
+ ARM® Cortex™-A9 core (4 core)
+ SGX543MP4+
+ 3G and wifi, apparently up to each region to decide on which SKUs to bring out
+ Unreal Engine 3 looks and runs amazing on the machine
+ Easy to port existing games from PS3/360 and PSP
+ Cross platform play and continuous play possibility confirmed
+ Uncharted looks and plays awesome
+ Hot Shots Golf Next, wow
+ Little Deviants looks like the innovative, handheld only title that Sony needs and didn't push on PSP until late in its life
+ LBP, Resistance confirmed
+ Off the shelf CPU/GPU parts suggest that Sony will make a profit early and we'll have bigger and better iterations sooner
+ 2 cameras
+ GPS
+ N wi fi
+ Near and LiveArea PSN service

Cons:
- Lots of things are unconfirmed so far, western 3rd party support (EA, THQ, Take 2), HDMI out, build in storage, PSN BC (including Dreamcast, NeoGeo and PCEngine games), camera resolution, etc
- Proprietary storage solution
- Executives avoiding the price question and suggesting the 3DS is decently priced, that makes me nervous about pricing
- Fall 2011 is too far, and JP only so far
- Not really pocketable (that's not a minus for me but is for a lot of folks)
- The New UI needs some work

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Overall, A+ conference.

2K Games, Sports and Rockstar Games are on the supporting list. That's all Take 2's labels. I'd be very, very, very surprised if EA aren't already one of the keenest supporters.

All major publishers will be releasing games for it. The ones you listed (THQ/EA) just haven't signed yet, they do have devkits inhouse though if that is any kind of solace.

It had to be proprietary, otherwise it opens the door to piracy very easily.

Pricing will be ok for the Wifi version in Europe and Japan the 3G version will probably be sold with a network subsidy. I can't confirm which networks, but Sony are talking to all of the majors around Europe.

It is pretty far out, but that is the only way to get production costs and capacity up before launch. Otherwise it will be expensive and there will be lots of shortages.

UI isn't final.

Was I the only one expecting Sweeney to start playing Gears of War after they showed UE3? That would be a megabomb lol

Do we know if this will be on the same... list, I guess I'd say... as PS3 trophies or will they be separate accounts? Single PSN account, right? I hope.

Penta-band 3G would make it easier for world wide... I probably don't want it, though and would use my cell as a hot spot.

Wonder if they're already thinking 4G/WiMax/LTE/HSPA+

Quote:
+ N wi fi
Very happy to see that. Hope we get a PS3 sku that has it soon.

As long as there isnt a 9 month wait from Japanese launch like there was with PSP I really don't mind.

3g for the UK is pretty useless as all the mobile companies cap their speeds. T-Mobile for example only give me 0.35Mbps Down 0.12Mbps up and 154ms Ping on average. Thats on my htc Desire.

Dongles on the other hand offer up to 7Mbps but as with home broadband it hardly reachs top speeds and your limited to only 3gb of data a month at the cost of £20!

So in my opinion I'm happy to go with the cheaper Wi-Fi only SKU.

My predictions:

Wifi only : $350

Wifi + 3G : $450

I mean when the PSP launched it was $250 I believe and so was the PSPGo. With all the tech this thing has I can't see it being under $300. Honestly I think if anybody expects that they are crazy.

There is footage out there of the Uncharted game being developed for this unit. It looks like I'll have to upgrade my PSP when this releases... even though I've only used my current PSP for about 5 hours in total since I got it 2 Christmas' ago.
