NGP price will be 'affordable', promises Sony

But company won't put exact cost on PSP2

Sony has promised that the PSP2 - aka NGP - price will be "affordable" when it launches later this year.

The platform holder sent gamers into frenzy with its announcement of the device in Tokyo, Japan, this morning.

It revealed that NGP - a prototype name for what the firm has dubbed its Next Generation Portable - will have a five inch OLED screen and two thumbsticks. The machine also boasts very impressive technical specifications under the hood.

However, Sony is yet to reveal anything close to an exact price - leaving the CVG team and its readers pressing and guessing at how much NGP will cost.

However, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Andrew House did tell EuroGamer: "I can't put a ballpark on it in terms of figures, but what I would say is that we will shoot for an affordable price that's appropriate for the handheld gaming space."

House added that Sony will be aiming to sell the handheld at a profit from day-one - which indicates a costly price tag might be on the way.

Price aside, it's hard to argue with NGP's software line-up - which includes new additions to the Killzone, Call Of Duty, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance series.
