As long as I’m linking to Engadget I may as well point to a couple of entries they did on Sony’s showing of the Playstation Portable (PSP) at the Tokyo Game Show this past weekend. First there’s this collection of photos from the event showing off various details including the UMD discs and inline remote for the unit.
Most disturbing part: to prevent anyone from “accidentally” walking off with one, Sony kept all their PlayStation Portable demonstration consoles strapped to these trade show girls, forcing geeks to make friendly with the fairer sex if they actually wanted to play with one (a PSP, that is).
It’s a true testament to the geekiness of the guys that they were able to focus at all on what was happening on the PSP display as opposed to the attractive young women leashed to the units. Come to think of it, Sony could probably sell a hellalot of these if they included the girls with them.
You can call me officially impressed! Sony claimed the PSP would come close to the PS2 in terms of gaming power and if the initial footage is anything to go by I’d say they’re not bragging much at all. My interest is definitely piqued, but the final price will still play a large role in determining if I get one anytime remotely soon after they launch.
