Sony PSP Bits


The German news magazine Der Spiegel posted an interview with Sony's Phil Harrison. He's talking about PS2 online gaming and the appeal of EyeToy among other things, but also drops some more information on their upcoming PSP system. Asked about what they're going to do about the dominance of Nintendo's GBA he responds that they're going for a different target audience. The PSP is definitely aimed at adults, a device one will be a "proud owner" of. The design is going to be slick and elegant, "like other Sony home entertainment products." They apparently haven't created a prototype yet though. Emphasizing on the multimedia capabilities, Harrison stated again that the PSP certainly will be more than just a gaming device. A GPS signal receiver won't be in-built, but upgrades like that are going to be available for purchase.
