    Default Sony to introduce new PSP Smartphone to combat Apple

    I'll hold off on purchasing a PSPgo, if this information holds true:


    "Sony is planning to introduce this year a smart phone which can play PlayStation games and a new multifunction portable device as part of a plan to take the consumer electronics gadget initiative from rival Apple."

    Weird, but could potentially be a good seller.

    I can't see it actually being a PSP phone, I'd say more of a gaming phone that plays Mini's and works with Media Go.

    Another project is a portable device that the Journal said blurs the distinctions between a netbook computer, an electronic book reader and a PlayStation Portable, or PSP.

    The PSP2?

    It's just going to be another device that Sony can piss off the hacker community with.

    that what i think as well
    it can play mini(not full psp, ps1 games), and video, and music, you buy off the PSN using Media Go

    it may also, do limited Remote play with the PS3(there is a phone that can do that now)
    it may also be able to use the PSN right form the phone, so you may not need to use Media Go

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)
