Sony has made it clear that it is no longer interested in the handheld market. While there is no doubt that Nintendo has had tremendous success with its hybrid hardware, the previous portable PlayStation failed to capture the imagination of gamers – even if the PS Vita is now considered something of a cult classic – despite its innovative design.
While some segments of the PlayStation fanbase continue to express interest in handheld devices, this concept appears to be a good match for that market segment. It was developed by Technizo Concept and features a 6.2-inch 1440p display as well as a triple-lens rear camera. We see God of War 2 as a sample game in the video – which is available for download on the PlayStation Vita – but we expect this thing to be used to power PS4 software in general.
It also happens to come at an interesting time for portable gaming, as Nintendo recently announced the Switch OLED, which uses the same screen technology as Sony’s decade-old PS Vita handheld gaming system. As previously mentioned above, Valve has unveiled the Steam Deck, a portable computer that boasts impressive processing power.
Is there still a demand for a next-generation PSP, or has the market moved on already?
