Thank you Smithee for beating me to the "should be common sense but for some reason isn't common" statement.
Gotta say I'm far more interested in this than in the new DS (in which I am not interested) some interest > no interest.
Not happy with the lack of UMD backwards compatibility, mainly because I STILL haven't even gotten a PSP. Skipping to the next step seems less practical now. And I'm equally, if not more, annoyed as Varion if there's no TV out. I didn't even plan on getting an original PSP until I learned you could display it as such. . .
At the risk of starting an opinion war on console preference, but I simply don't care for handhelds.
He who gets screwed by tentacle monsters should see to it he does not become one.
What are you referring to? All I see on the bottom is a USB port for connectivity (and, I assume, charging) and a headport port. Looked pretty hard but there's no evidence of TV Out to me :/ The last hope were those two 'slots' on the top that are covered over, one I assume is for game cards, I have no idea what the other is. But seen as it's not on the lists of ports and stuff I've given up, I'll just have to hope they add it back in for the PSP2-2000!
The back touch pad is for whatever developers feel like using it for. It's 1:1 to the main screen so I think it's mostly just going to be used to imprecise movements like climbing up vines (I this is what they used it for in the Uncharted demo) without your fingers getting in the way of the screen.
Ah fuck, for whatever reason I thought that was the tv-out. THE HEADSET PORT! IT TRICKED ME! Damn, I like playing games on the TV too. I mean, its not like they couldn't do it with the touch screen, just display the image on both!
As for the touchpad on back, it looked pretty cool when they were demoing the game where they were rolling around the little balls or whatever they are.
Oh boy Sony is really following Ninty's bandwagon for including a touch screen. But that's not my major criticism of that handheld. The NGP is not "100% backwards compatibility". Yes you can still play the PSP games but only the digital versions since it has no UMD tray so I can't play my PSP Ys games on that handheld. But I'm amazed on it's great features especially that real 3D environment when moving the NGP on any direction.
Btw since Nihon Falcom is also committed on making their games for NGP, can we expect Ys 8?
