News: Sony unveils the PSP with Metal Gear too!



As the handheld wars heat up, Sony has finally debuted the PSP to the world. The full spec sheet is very impressive, the parts of it I could understand anyway. A beautiful widescreen display, a 1.8 GB propietary cartridge/disc system called UMD (Universal Media Disc). The discs will be 60 mm wide, or roughly the size of a GameCube mini-disc. The UMD discs allow crystal clear full motion video so movies can easily fit onto the discs making the PSP a perfect on-the-go movie player/game machine hybrid.

The system is built for wireless play and wireless integration with other devices. The PS2 perhaps? But if wireless isn't your thing, data can also be transferred between devices with a Sony Memory Stick. The Memory Stick will also act a memory card for the system.

Konami also dropped a bombshell when they announced that Metal Gear Acid would be one of the first games to come to the PSP. They didn't reveal any more besides the title, and nothing resembling a release date.


And for tech junkies that need to see the full specs, here those are:
