    EDIT: Learn to read people! Any of the features which were unveiled on the 27th of January won't be axed. Sony said that they removed certain features before unveiling it for cost cutting purposes.

    I want to know what has been dropped, hopefully Sony dropped the 3G entirely since it will be a pain and the source of most complaints if implemented.

    That sucks.... they should give it all the potential it has... if people cant buy it thats their problem, so this is basically an unfinished product

    I totally agree. If the additions were worthwhile, they shouldn't have removed them(although I doubt that they were).

    but what features are they talking about... hardware maybe but not the software capabilities of NGP have been compromised
    how about nintendo not talking about these things? is it tht nintendo plans it better?
    they also said they removed features from the ps3 to decrease its price later on but does it include OtherOS? its a software, does the development phase cause the extra costs?

    People are forgetting they are releasing two PSP2 models.
    One with 3G, one without.

    Obviously, the 3G will be more than the one without so if you really do hate 3G, don't get the 3G model [​IMG]

    What I got out of the article (which may not be true for all) was that there was more the NGP would have had, but perhaps prior to their unveiling of the device, such additions were removed, so maybe what we've seen will stay. As far as price goes along with that, I have the sneaky feeling that before the cuts to those features, the price would have been around the initial PS3 price when that first launched, as they now say they removed such features to keep the price down (lesson learned from the PS3). How much did they removed? We don't know, nor do we know how much that dropped the price either.

    All we can say is that the NGP we will get will not be the beast it was originally set to be (but is still a beast when compared to other portable devices). [​IMG]

    Actually they did.

    But that leaves me to wonder what exactly they were going to put in the NGP in the first place.
