Sony Computer Entertainment made formal announcement today of its next generation PlayStation Portable system. The system currently goes by the code name "NGP," or "Next Generation Portable" and will make its debut by the end of the calendar year.

In its press release announcing the hardware today, Sony made note of the following features:

OLED Screen
    The system's 5 inch OLED display and high performance CPU and GPU will allow for high quality visuals.
User Interface
    Front and rear touch panel allow for such interactions as touch, grab, grace, push and pull via finger movements.
Super Oval Design
    The system's shape was designed to fit comfortably into users' hands.
Dual Analog Sticks
    Two sticks will allow a broader range of games to be brought to the portable format.
Live Area
    This is a space provided to all NGP games. Players will be able to access information on games through here, and can view an activity log of others that could trigger real time communication between players.
Near
    NGP will have location-based services, one of which is a pre-installed app called Near. Players can use this to find what friends in the vicinity are playing now or were playing recently.
New Game Medium
    NGP uses a new game medium, small flash memory cards that are dedicated for NGP software titles. The cards can store the full game along with save data content and add-on game content. The flash format will also allow sony to provide higher capacity in the future.
Cameras and other Interfaces
    The system has rear and back cameras and three motion sensors: gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass.
PlayStation Suite
    PlayStation Suite, announced today, is a cross platform framework that will bring PlayStation content to Android mobile devices. All PS Suite titles released on Android devices will be playable on NGP. Sony says that it believes this will give the system the casual experiences that typify the mobile market place.

    The system's announcement came at today's PlayStation Meeting 2011 event in central Tokyo.


    Sony has opened an official site for the event. This has specs and system images, and a concept video.

Eh, not going to bother until I see what games are available. The last PSP only had one or two that I was interested in, in its entire lifespan.
The cross-platform compatibility with Android is nice, but I don't have one. Its probably a response to MS phones being Xbox Live compatible, iPhone has its own thing, the Game Center, but I haven't bothered with it. iPhone has plenty of games though.

The design and hardware sound appealing, but I'll be waiting to hear about the games too.  I wonder about the price, with two touch panels, two cameras and motion sensors.  I just own two games for my PSP 3000, though I might be interested in picking up a few more.  It's very interesting that they're now going with flash cards for games instead of downloading everything, like on the PSP Go.  But these new games with high quality visuals might take up a lot of space, making downloading impractical for many potential players.

For now, the 3DS has the games I'd be interested in, like new versions of Starfox 64 and Ocarina of Time.

I've been wanting to play Little Big Planet, would rather have it on the PS3 though. I wonder how much like it Create is, I've been tempted to pick it up whenever I see it, it's pretty cheap for a new release.

I plan on getting Little Big Planet next month.  I hadn't heard of Create, looked it up, looks like an interesting game.  The NGP is looking like a portable PS3 as far as graphic power.  I wouldn't stick with that name, though, it may not be the final one.  Every time I see that "N", I think of Nintendo.
