Sony have finally unveiled the PSP2, after months of rumours and speculation.

The new touch screen PSP2 is a big step up from the PSP and the PSPgo, however it will not be available for purchase for a good few months yet.

Sony have dubbed the new hand held console as the NGP, which stands for ‘Next Generation Portable’.

The new specifications for the NGP were revealed in Japan last night.

There is a five-inch 960×544 OLED touch screen, twin camera’, a microphone, and built in twin speakers. It also has a touch sensitive back, allowing you to control on-screen action without blocking the screen, and GPS and WIFI built in.

One of the most talked about new features however is the second analog stick, which was the main thing that the original PSP missed out on.

The second analog stick of course, gives players the ability to move their character with one stick, whilst looking around the screen with the other.

Sony is also getting rid of the dowload only approach that the PSPgo used for games. Details are vague on this, although Sony seems to be opting for the UMD - replacing cards.

The PSP2 NGP can also play Android games. Using PS Suite, games from the PlayStation may be played on Android, and Android games may be played on the NGP.

On top of everything else, the NGP has a quad-core Imagination Technologies PowerVR graphics processor.

Sony has stated that the NGP will arrive in stores towards the end of 2011, bringing it out just in time for Christmas.
