Famitsu readers have voted strongly in favour of the next-generation PlayStation Portable, codenamed NGP but likely to change at least three times before it’s out. Whenever that is.
In a survey, which covered more than 1,207 responses, 76.2% of people that completed said questionnaire said they want an NGP. And whilst nearly 16% said they weren’t sure (remember, there’s no set price, date or launch line-up revealed yet) only 8% gave a flat-out no.
The second question regarded price, with 42.5% selecting ¥30,000 (£225) or below, with 18.7% aiming at ¥35,000 (£260). Frighteningly, almost 4% of readers thought the machine might cost ¥50,000 (£375) or more. Let’s hope not, eh?
Although Sony showed off white and black models a the PlayStation Meeting, nobody actually wanted black. White was the most popular, following by blue, red, silver and – yes – green.
Console-quality graphics was the key feature most Japanese gamers wanted. Dual analogues, hi-res screen and touch controls weren’t as important. Nobody selected the option to use it as a small fitness step for mice.
