Sony: PlayStation Vita Was "Never Designed To Be PSP2"
It's what many of us assumed: the "NGP" or Next Generation Portable would essentially be the PSP2.
And in a lot of ways, what ended up being revealed as the PlayStation Vita looked kinda similar to Sony's first portable device. The second effort is just a whole lot more advanced.
Still, Sony's John Koller says in designing the new handheld, it was never the company's intention to design a "PSP2." Speaking in a new Vita developer diary posted at the PlayStation Blog, Sony talks about the evolution of portable gaming.
It's also great to hear that Sony was constantly in touch with game developers; asking questions, giving them chances to sample the hardware, and in general, making a collaborative effort that would ultimately benefit the gamer. Sony obviously understands that in order to make a piece of hardware fly, you need the software. And that's why the Vita lineup looks so promising right now.
