Pocket-Lint: The announcement of the Sony Playstation NGP or PSP2, as some are referring to it, looks to have set a hyperactive cat amongst some, until now, rather lethargic pigeons. The world was still a little sleepy from CES 2011 and then, wham, we’ve got the next generation of portable gaming on our laps.
ArsTechnica: "The past three weeks have been the longest weeks of my life with the PlayStation. I really appreciate the support you have given us," Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment's worldwide studios, told the press gathered at a preview event in Los Angeles. He was talking about the PlayStation Network problems, but we weren't there for another apology. We were there to play the NGP.
And that's what we did. After Yoshida's short speech playing up the social aspects of the system and the beauty of the hardware, we were set loose on a variety of developer systems to play through the system's launch games. While PR cautioned that the debug kits we were playing would have some superficial differences from the hardware you'll buy in the store, the time we spent gave us a good idea of what to expect from the system and its design.
OHH: Well that didn’t take long did it? Although not released yet, the forums over on CnGBA are buzzing with pictures, questions and speculation over a new machine dubbed the RG or the ‘iReadyGo’. Why the fuss? Well it looks like some manufacturer in China decided to go against the grain and release an open source machine this time, and even went as far as sticking in what looks to be a semi decent processor too.
Ars Technica: "Starting next week, PSP owners will be able to stream an unlimited amount of music to their handhelds. Sony has announced that the PSP is the latest device to support the recently launched Qriocity cloud-based music service, and users will be able to start streaming music on April 14."
