In other words, this probably is bad news. Sony’s Next-Generation Portable (NGP or PSP2) was so awesome with specs like 3G, twin analog sticks, and such that the price would be too high (which for portable gaming machines, is anything above $300). Thus, Sony had to make some cuts.
According to Sony Computer Entertainment worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida (while speaking to Edge): “There were elements that we found pretty cool, but had to set aside to remain on target,. “It’s a big lesson we learnt from the PS3. There’s no point putting everything you want into a device and doing the math later.”
So essentially, there were some cuts, but we don’t know what they are (or were). So this only makes the situation worse. On the other hand, it’s nice to know Sony is thinking of your wallet (or theirs). Via: CVG
