N-Gage couldn't do it. Sony maybe can? Imagine if they'd done this instead of the PSP originally. Boom! Would have been exactly like Nintendo's console dominance with the Wii. iPhone wouldn't have taken such a big bite out of the apple, as it has.
What will this do that other devices don't do? From the sound of it, not much. The ability to control those "quick and dirty" games with the 'ol fashioned gamers control scheme is what.
There've also been rumors floating around, as they do, about a possible Playstation App for the iDevices, and the Android OS. If that's true, it's likely we won't be seeing any special PSP exclusives ported over to this device. I could be wrong about that, and they've finally just given up hope on selling any PSP's at all.
Will it have some life? Of course - it's a device with a pretty powerful processor on it. Let's hack that shit, and put Super Nintendo games on it; Mame, PSX Emulators, PS2 Emulators, PSP Emulators, Neo Geo Neo Geo, four bright buttons and two joysticks!
Anyway It's probably going to cost around 400 bucks just like the iPhones and such, unless you sign into a contract with the devils. So whatever, this'll probably just go down as another lame device like the long forgotten "Pocketstation"; What never heard of it?
