Sony were quite comfortable with letting the idea that its upcoming portable will pack somewhere close to PS3 levels of punch float around at first, but things are getting out of hand. And Sony couldn’t stand idly by letting these rumors run rampant for more than a few months. Because then they’d get into the public consciousness and people would start thinking they were true even after Sony debunked them and then where would you be?
“Some people in the press have said wow, this thing… could be as powerful as PS3. Well, it’s not going to run at 2GHz because the battery would last five minutes,” David Coombes, a platform research manager and intrepid truth disseminator said about NGP processor claims. “And it would probably set fire to your pants.” And since Sony cares deeply about your pants, mostly because that’s where your wallet is, that’s obviously not happening. To be honest, I was perfectly happy with PSP visuals for a handheld, all the NGP needed for a sale was a second analog. The rest is just gravy.
