How the PSP sizes up to the DSi, iPhone


Note: Relative sizes approximate
Learning the art of "never sleeping," Joystiq has gone ahead and created a comparison chart of the new Nintendo DSi, comparing it to the PSP-3000 and Apple's iPod Touch and iPhone (by tech specs, not games library). Check it out.

Sony: iPhone not a threat, GPS coming within 9 months


PSP brand manager John Koller has spoken out about the prospects of the PSP for the rest of 2008: he is confident that like the first half of 2008, key titles like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy and God of War: Chains of Olympus, along with multimedia functionality, will set the system apart from its competitors. Koller also believes the key to maintaining strong sales is to add "new features, new functionality." He also confirms the Go!Explore GPS will go on sale in the States in the next nine months and hopes to convey to consumers the PSP is part of a "broader cultural trend for content on the go."

Addressing the new iPhone App Store, which has many games available for download on it, Koller feels that the iPhone "is more of a threat to DS than anything else" because of its nature as a secondary gaming device, hence attracting more casual gamers. We agree -- with an onslaught of specialized exclusives coming up like Resistance: Retribution, Papapon 2 and Dissidia: Final Fantasy, it certainly seems the PSP is poised to have a bright future.

PSP attempts iPhone-esque makeover

Portals are quite popular on PSP systems. They utilize the system's internet browser to allow easy access to internet applications, such as mail clients and online messengers. The latest takes the design of Apple's popular iPhone, and attempts to transplant it to the PSP. While it certainly looks sleek, the vertical alignment makes the system awkward. Still, easy to follow instructions and a great self-installer makes this one of the better portals to pursue.

iPhone and Zune become new competitors


Apple's announcement of the iPhone has changed a lot of things: it is a device that has the potential to strike terror into the hearts of all electronics and gaming companies. The iPhone comes with features that a PSP owner would die for: a gorgeous 480x320 display, with 2MP camera, Bluetooth, OS X, iTunes video and music, and up to 8GB of storage (oh yeah, it makes phone calls too). All in a profile that fits in less than 12mm. It has the potential to change gaming, as explained by Joystiq. With its dual touch screen, PS3-styled accelerometer, and Internet capabilities, this device can do seemingly everything that the PSP and DS can do. But, will its high PS3-styled price scare off consumers? $600 including a 2-year contract with Cingular is a mighty price to swallow. The PSP at $200 (not including memory) seems like a bargain compared to this device. Although the iPhone is a phone, and not a gaming machine, it will certainly compete against the PSP, especially as a multimedia device.

Microsoft also announced that it will enter the portable games market with its Zune, however PSP fans should have nothing to worry about. The games will be comparable to the games available on iTunes ... and the Zune's install base is nothing to write home about. If Microsoft were serious about portable games, they'll show off something far more impressive than today's announcement. However, it's clear that the portable gaming battle is no longer going to stay as a simple two-sided battle: Apple and Microsoft will both make things a bit more complicated.
