Source: PSP2 Boasts Bigger OLED Screen, 3G Data

Specs are never 100% concrete until they're confirmed, but it's always fun to hear about possible power.

The PSP2 is a hot topic recently, especially after various sources cited juicy "insider information." Could the PSP2 actually be as powerful as the PS3? And what about the other potentially revolutionary portable features? Well, while the latest report says everything will be official within the next few days - supposed unveiling on January 27 - we've got more details thanks to Nikkei and Engadget: evidently, the PSP2 will boast a sweet OLED touchscreen and 3G data from NTT DoCoMo. We can expect "multiplayer action and even full video and game downloads over the Japanese cellular network." Last but certainly not least, the source claims the new screen will be larger and "powered by some potent new silicon." But no, it won't make phone calls, so that's why you get the PlayStation Phone, which might be on store shelves by April. At the end of the year, you could have two of the hottest new mobile devices and both are from Sony.

But we really need all the specs and relevant info...and that includes price. The PSP2 is starting to sound like a pricey little unit.

I love PlayStation and all but judging from the "specs", I will only be able to afford the 3DS. 2011 is turning out to be a very expensive year for gamers.

Considering that the 3DS battery life will be short due to it's 3D capabilities, what can we expect from the PSP2 and it's bigger-shinier screen and having the same power as a PS3?

I hope they consider that before they turn the PSP2 into an expensive gadget that is barely 'portable'.

Let's make this one work Sony. Not another PSP Go!, k?

It would be great if the PSP2 would really feature an OLED screen. Those displays are amazing! I cannot wait for Sony to officially announce the PSP2. And I do hope that they would strengthen its security to circumvent the piracy problems that hounded the original PSP.

@Alex,

OLED is expensive in larger sizes but in the size of screen that is used in a handheld, they are not cost prohibitive. Besides which they sip power and are brighter than conventional LEDs which is a huge benefit for a handheld with limited battery capacity and a power hungry processor.

Samsung AMOLED (active matrix Organic LED) screens, like the ones that are used in many smartphones, are in this size range and not hugely expensive. The Active Matrix screens are very crisp and have good response times.

The substance used to make the LED emitters is an organic compound that can function as a semi-conductor. Some hydrocarbons function as semi-conductors. These compounds are much easier to work with, a thin film of the material can be used and with polymer anodes and cathodes flexible screens can be made on transparent substrates. So you can literally have a roll-up screen that is transparent when inactive. Its cool technology.

I think I read about it at one time (if I'm not mistaken) that it has the ability to turn off the color pigments completely for some dark scenes to produce the darkest, deepest black possible as well as contrast levels. It does it quick too, so color transition should be instant. Since it has the ability to turn on and off when it needs to, it might be one of the reasons why it has superior power efficiency. I read about this a long time ago so I may not be too accurate.

Whatever the case, it's the best possible screen a portable device can have right now so I'm excited.

100% correct Daus, that ability gives these kinds of screen a very high contrast ratio. Also because they don't have all the filters necessary for a conventional LED backlit LCD screen, they are brighter than those screens for the same amount of energy. So you get the crispness from the high contrast, a brighter image for the same power, and the screen is much lighter and thinner than a backlit LCD. I believe that they also switch faster resulting in a far better refresh time.

Taking all of that into account you can see why mobile device makers really like OLED screens.

OLED screen? Sounds expensive...Is anyone else thinking this will cost at least 400 bucks? Anyway, that won't deter me from purchasing it.

...but World... you can't really fault Apple design... can you now...

Even I will probably purchase an iPad 2 before I get the PSP2. Web browsing is important to me and the iPad 2 fulfills alot of the multimedia stuff I want to do without karting a laptop around with me, burning my thighs when I rest it on my legs...

If PSP2 has similar capabilities to an iPod, includes a really good browser etc, then it may be worth while, but first comes the iPad 2, then the PSP2 at a later date...

* I may change my mind depending on the PSP2 specifications, but I feel strongly as it is... we'll see on the 27th of January.

Should have added this thought. The 3G mentioned in the article relates to Japan only. 3G capability outside Japan will be in the hands of others than NTT DoCoMo who are Japan specific. There are 3G devices that include the connectivity in their price, but with the bandwidth that a PSP2 would need, I'm not sure that it will be easy to get all inclusive pricing that is in the range of normal consumers. I also don't see consumers wanting to buy this thing if it is encumbered by a two year agreement with a Cell operator. So I am wondering whether Sony will use a monthly subscription to 'Mobile PSN' (or some such name) so that they can buy 3G bandwidth from the major operators allowing the PSP to operate anywhere without having to have a specific Cell network available.

Highlander, if it has 3G connectivity it means we can also do VoIP... so maybe it will come with a Skype application too.

Who knows, but I can tell you the Homebrew hacking scene will try its luck out as soon as it is released... you can bet your bottom dollar on that.

My hunch is Sony has learnt from its mistakes with the PS3 and are using a far more robust set of security measures and countermeasures in the PSP2 than ever before... we'll shall see...

Geohot has already threatened to crack it as soon as it is released.

@Qubex,

I agree with you, they must surely have learned a lesson or two with PSP and PS3.

Personally, I think that they might try to go with a security structure similar to the PS3, but with the gaps filled and flaws fixed. I'm thinking something like making the CPU to be able to run a core security subsystem that can't be tampered with from the outside.

Use a hardware key that can't be seen from the outside and use an encrypted executable format for certain security related code. Have a separate system of keys and encryption for the games and media. The media keys have to be properly secure, and Sony needs to be able to revoke a key in the event that it is compromised.

The system needs to be tamper evident, not tamper proof. I don't think that you can ever design a computer that is tamper proof, I'm certain you'd agree with that. I think that Sony needs to design a system with a security subsystem deep inside the CPU that can detect tampering with system software and hardware - such as has been attempted on the PS3. Then any time system software of unauthorized software is used, or someone attempts to tamper with the security system, the security can silently raise an alarm indicating that the system has been tampered with. That won't stop hackers and pirates but it makes it possible to immediately identify and block/restrict/whatever a system that's compromised as soon as it touches PSN.

I just don't think that you can permanently prevent people from hacking any system. You can get close, but in the end something will happen. So you have to protect in layers and have a tamper evident security system that acts like a failsafe in the event that the system does get hacked.

The issue with Sony being notified about a tamper attempt automatically is that, in some form, it is corporate "spyware" reporting back on your activities. The whole Sony "root kit debacle" was over such an attempt and it didn't go down well...

Surely a lawsuit would ensue!

Not really. I'm not talking about an active call home feature, that would surely be disabled by a hacker any way. I'm talking about a telltale that is read when the system contacts PSN. So the user initiates the session and authenticates and as part of the authentication the PS3 sends an encrypted packet that indicates it's tamper state. That's not spyware or anything else. It's simply the system indicating whether it's been tampered with or not, and doing so passively when interrogated by PSN at login.

Sony has never let me down when it comes to a gaming system. I'll gladly pay the premium price the device will surely run for when it's first released.

Possibly, but unlike the PS3, this will not have an optical drive and CPU/GPU combination that between them rack up more than $400 in costs alone (as the BluRay and Cell/RSX did when the Ps3 launched).

The major component costs in this will be the processor/GPU combination, the brand new motherboard, the screen (and if it's not a touch screen, the trackpad on the back) and whatever chunk of Flash they put inside it. Many of the components for the control sticks and buttons are already there in the PSP. So Sony will be able to re-use some of that, and the PSP-Go already used the sliding screen mechanism to reveal the controls, so the mechanics of that are already sorted out too.

It could cost $250 and still not make a significant loss - depending on how exotic the CPU/GPU is. If they use an advanced, off the shelf design it will be far cheaper than a completely custom piece of silicon. All the rumors were pointing to a quad core system, but the Tegra2 from nVidia has also been mentioned. That's only dual core, so it might be Tegra3 which will be 4 cores this year (and might have been available in production samples in Q4 2010).

Here's a link to an article about the Tegra3. It lines up well with what we've been told about the PSp2 so far.

Having the PS name instantly will brand it as a gaming device, and so the priorities of many will put it lower than the latest phone.

Both interesting possibilities to be sure. The OLED screen will aid in prolonging battery life, as well as providing the user with a better screen at a price point which, by all means, shouldn't be overly expensive. The 3G connectivity is wonderous, but I'm wondering how it'll be implemented, as no-one will want to sign up for a contract with a mobile provider unless they are guaranteed to use it. Perhaps they'll be able to use some sort of pre-paid credit in a deal with providers?

How about a subscription fee paid to Sony to allow Access to PSN from your PSP2 (Specifically the PSP2 and nothing else). Sony then turns around and buys network capacity from the major mobile telcos. Sony's PSP2 customers never have to even worry about it, because it's included in their subscription to PSN.

Sounds like the OnStar analogy.

Definitely doable, though.

Simcoe,

Yes, that's true, in the other hand many telcos have already got standing contracts with each other around the world to cover data roaming. Also the sheer cost of providing 3G infrastructure means that at the end of the day, there really are not that many individual mobile network operators. Think in terms of subsidiaries of partner organizations. It can be done. Kindle doesn't even require a subscription to any kind of plan, but then Kindle doesn't stream video or download gigs worth of games, video and music either. But Kindle works on 3G wherever you go.

That's why I was thinking in terms of Sony arranging such contracts. It would make mobile PSN a service that was network independent (well as network independent as need be for coverage). Consumers will be very put off if there is a vendor lock in with a cell contract. I don't think you'll see two year contracts either since PSP2 is a handheld gaming unit, kids will own them too, and they can't sign a cell contract. Monthly subscription with Sony for a Mobile PSN would make more sense - with the option to take a fixed term contract, pay ahead or pay as you go. I don't know though, it could be a headache, but it might be a lot smaller of a headache for Sony if consumers don't have a dis-incentive to buy the PSP2. Cell contracts would represent a dis-incentive to me.

Oh right, I forgot about the Kindle, that's another good comparison. The problem with the Kindle was that it took it forever to arrive here in Canada (years). If I do remember correctly, part of that was Amazon negotiating usage/access fees though Canadian telcos: Amazon wanted better rates.

I totally agree that some sort of plan needs to be worked out so that kids can use a 3G service without having to sign some sort of post-paid cell contract. Also, playing online over 3G is one thing, but downloading video and gigs worth of games should be down with local wifi access (or via PS3).

How hard is it to understand what I, as a customer, was expecting the psp phone and psp2 were going to be 2 of the same machine. Which made it awesome. Now that it is gone, I don't need to know the specs to tell that it is junk compared to 3ds because that is what gave its' appeal to me. Was highly disappointed when I found out, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be junk if 3ds was out of the picture.

Why would I bash the 3ds for not making phone calls when that is not my appeal to it?!

I'm sorry if I hurt your poor feelings little girl because I don't like the current state of them dividing the stuff in half. Making one with higher specs for games and no phone capability. Then one with phone capability and weaker specs. Instead of combining the two.

Wow, well, I'm glad that's out of the way. You won, I mean, how could anyone else prove that they are more childish than you? So, you win. You *are* the most childish.

Well done you.

Oh, BTW, the simple thing here is that you failed to discuss or support your assertions and instead hurled insults. Which is why you do in fact lose the 'argument', despite winning the race to be the most childish.

Actually, I wasn't the first to throw insults. Sorry if I like to defend myself. Saying that I am childish isn't helping your situation any (which is more childish in your case). If I remember correctly. I had an opinion that you replied to that did not deal with you or your little friend. Then your little friend thought it would be smart to call me ignorant (not to mention he edit some of his post). Now your jumping in with your 2 cent. Sir you fail, hop off it.

PS
If I did start insulting you or him first. Then I would own up to it, but this isn't the case.

I am fairly willing to pay top dollar for this device, not exceeding $400 though, but Sony needs to pull through with games in order to make it worth while. The 3DS has some games that are really catching my interest, I know Ocarina of time has been done before, I've bought and played it on my Wii. I'm willing to buy it again. But if Sony can get some seriously awesome games on this, like LittleBigPlanet(I'm a sucker for platformers) I will be quite near the front of the line. Also, give us US gamers some great colors! I hate how everywhere but North America got the carnival color line of PSP's....

Oh, one more thing: I know it's not like Sony to do this, but it would be awesome if they'd use a common format for extra memory storage, like SD.
