Sony has said nothing about the price of the new NGP, letting people drink in all the features and new games announced for the system. Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida, however, is implying that it will not be unreasonable.
Despite the push that the PS3 is getting for 3D and 3D being the main selling point of the 3DS, the NGP has no such support. “We evaluated the 3DS screens that are available and the costs,” Yoshida said. “And there are lots of trade-offs. This [the NGP] is what we want to do.”
When pressed, Yoshida added, “The portable is a totally different beast. It’s still emerging and in a transitional stage. We are developing a platform to last a long time.”
