    Ok, so what... battery life is going to be like 2mins of playing time then? Either that or you'll be carrying around a back pack with 2 car batteries and a power inverter in it. [​IMG]

    Really tho I hope the battery life is decent if this is a true statement.

    And it'll probably be as big as a PS3 too...

    Sony have about as good of a track record with their claims of power as Apple.

    What this probably really means is that on a handhelds screen held at arms length the games look almost as good as a PS3 on a HDTV.

    Been years since the PS3 has been released, new technology and etc... and from Sony it really wouldn't surprise me.

    Although it'll be more like comparing the PSP to the PS2, close but not quite.

    it makes sense if the screen is reasonably sized.
    the PS3 needs major processing powers because it's supposed to be able to output 1080p, a resolution of 1920*1080
    if the PSP2 screen resolution is just 640*320 as on some of the recent mobile phones (N8 iirc) then it needs about 1/3rd of the processing power of the PS3 to achieve the same graphics
    of course thats purely theoretical, in practice many other factors need to be considered... but it makes sense to me.

    I strongly doubt it's "as powerful as PS3" even if it is, it's still barely going to sell since it's going to have to be pretty big for at least one fan for all the power as all the features they plan on throwing onto it as well, as a strong battery or it's not going to be on long

    Not really.
    PSP2 video chip is, according to rumors a Tegra 2-soc from Nvidia (28nm). Which is less than the PS3. Even when you calculate the smaller screen resolution with it. (It's still powerful, but no PS3 level)

    Unless something changes soon, this is bringing on the fall of videogames as most of us knew them. There's no content, nothing new, and it's just pieces climbing atop pieces to no real goal or worth.

    Of course It can display near PS3 visuals! You know why? duh duh smaller resolution/screen, doesn't need to render as much as the PS3 has to. Powerful no way, visual yes as this is Sony.

    haha instead of Nintendo's half an hours playing warning as of 3D, Sony would have....

    'Please be aware that Sony's PSP2 battery life lasts 5 minutes and do not forget to save every minute'

    I would like to add that there's more to the PS3's power than just being able to output high quality HD graphics. The cell processor is sometimes used to calculate advanced physics and AI. Force Unleashed and GTA4 are good examples, both used some advanced physics engines which simulate realism in terms of how objects and people react to movement. I guess Crysis would be another such type game. I'm sure there are plenty more. Then advanced AI with smart enemies and NPC's, how they react to stuff happening to them (like if they sense a dangerous object flying towards them, they'll jump out of the way, or if they are falling and see a ledge, they'll try to grab on to save themselves).

    So i'd have to say there's more than just the graphics at work in there. We'll see what Sony managed to pull off, but i somewhat doubt it's quite as powerful as PS3 in terns of everything. Maybe the games could look somewhat on par with the PS3 graphically, but i somewhat doubt it could pull off EVERYTHING the PS3 could do. At least with decent battery life. I don't mind being wrong though, would be interesting to say the least.

    As the source said, Sony is making these claims to devs so its not guesses and assumptions in my books

    I remember people saying the same for the 3DS before the reveal. Didn't turn out true though [​IMG]
    It'll probably be slightly more powerful than the wii, but look better due to the smaller screen
