Boom! Sony's new PSP2 is a PS3 in your pocket~

In the wee early hours of the morning, Sony announced what had been rumored for months: the PSP2, code-named NGP (tentative title for the handheld and short for Next Generation Portable)~

It will be released this holiday season, but no pricing has been announced yet~

I guess UMDs are DEAD. The PDP2 uses flash cards that look very similar to an SD card. No more spinning discs equals faster game loading times and no more scratched media. Hooray! Big smiles everyone. Cartridges win again and so do physical retailers that sell games. Sony didn't mention how large each game cart would hold. guessing more than the 1.8GB that a UMD can, if PS3-quality games are going to be stored~

Oh yeah! It houses a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor (not sure what the clock speed is) and uses an SGX543MP4+ GPU. No details on the amount of RAM, but it looks to be beefy with all the tasks this baby can handle~
