- 3G service (DoCoMo will provide the service)
- OLED touchscreen

Some details from GAF (rumored details):
- Can push early PS3/360 graphics
- RAM similar to 360's
- Rear touchpad
- Dual analog
- Will abandon UMDs, SD cards will be the format

I dunno...  The fact it can do early next--gen graphics perplexes me and me having a next-gen console.

For some reason I don't like the idea based on such... simple and stupid trains of thought... dunno why.  Plus, especially with the PSP's lack of really outstanding titles, I just hope the PSP2 doesn't hit such a roadblock.

I guess it can be kinda cool.  But then it comes down to "do I want a 3DS or PSP2?" - especially when money is tight.  Otherwise it feels like a dick-measuring contest for who can get the better stuff out.

"Next gen" started half a decade ago, there's kids born when the 360 was that are now entering pre-school. We can't really call it that anymore.

Hope 3G's not necessary (or alternatively, like the Kindle it's free), otherwise Sony will have figured out how to put themselves out of reach of many people. Can't see many people wanting to worry about a monthly wireless bill to use their PSP, or possibly even need to go with another service.

What else do we call it?  I just find it works for all intensive purposes.... =/
Unless it's misleading with something other than Wii[?], Xbox3-shitty, and PS3....

As for the second point, I hope it's free 3G as well.  I imagined thats why people love the PS3 so much - at least you don't have to pay for online play (which, IMO, is ridiculous... it's bad enough some of these games aren't multiplayer unless you and your buddy both have the game).

Current-gen should be the obvious choice. It's not the next one after all, it's the current one!

Is that why you call it the 3-shitty? Haha. Sure, PSN is free, but I imagine M$ gives better service since they're actually paid. :P Still, I've never owned a 360, and I'm not sure I'd pay for Live if I bought one now, I've already built up my PS3 library.

..back to the 3G thing though: Really doubt it'll be free, I don't think there's such thing. It'd have to go through a wireless provider or whoever else offers 3G services *here* by the time it's out. (Maybe it'll be cheap monthly? IDK.) Plus you'll still be able to use wi-fi with it anyway.

I'd be pretty shocked if the 3G was free, but that doesn't mean it will be required.  To me it just seems like an obvious thing to have as an option.

It IS unlikely, Kindle probably only gets away with it because the most bandwidth intensive things are... uhh, books. And the largest of those would be but a few megabytes, it'd be akin to buying a very expensive, very long lasting MP3 in terms of space. I'm pretty sure there isn't much in the way of proper web browsing.

Hell, even then it's "free" rather than free, you pay one extra fee upfront but nothing else afterwards.

People think the 3DS is a battery hog? I can't wait to see what the battery life on this thing is going to be.

Oh, man - I'm such a sucker for hardware.  This has me excited again, and I'm just now trying to figure out how to pay for my 3DS preorder.  Or if I should preorder.

I just find it works for all intensive purposes.... =/

Um... that should be "all intents and purposes."

I'm wondering the same thing. Play an intensive game that pushes the PSP processor to 333mhz and you'll see how long it lasts with the normal battery. Tip: not much.

The battery life on my PSP slim has always been rather poor. It would only last about 4-6 hours before I had to charge again on low brightness settings with no wi-fi on. Plus, the battery would die if I didn't use the PSP for a long time. That would never happen with my DS Lite.

I think the battery dies easy on the PSP because it seems to always go into a "standby" mode. The DS always shuts off properly.

Even when I go back to the home screen on PSP and then shut it off, then come back later and turn it on the menu and everything is in the same spot.

Uh...you know you need to hold the switch for a while to actually turn it off, right?
