agreed about the d-pad. and i think the buttons shouldn't be so flat. i like to be able to feel myself pushing down. unless psp has a gigantic graphics upgrade from that of gba, i still think nintendo has this category locked.
i noticed the pic of the hardware called "PSX" in the second link. any info about this? or is this just an idea sony is tinkering with?

I think the PSX is a Ps2 + HD combo. Sort of a high-end all-in-one model. Big ugly silver box, from the looks of the mockup.
Tho I understand they're also planning an economy PS2 for the other end of the demographic . . .

I'd been under the impression that the new PSX was a PS2, HD, TiVO system, MP3 player, etc. etc. All it needs is an additional thing to make coffee and take the dog for a walk, and I'll never leave my couch :-)
How can they make an economy PS2, though? Take out the USB ports? I had heard they're lowering the price to $139.99 canadian, though.

Supposedly, Sony's been refining the chip design in the PS2 to make it smaller, and also easier and cheaper to produce. And those savings are what will most likely be passed on to the consumer.
Well, looking at what they did between the older PlayStations and the PSone's...that's entirely possible. I hope they don't get rid of something that could be used in the future (i.e. the parallel port in the back where a Gameshark can be attached) like they did on the PSone.
I'm going to watch this one with avid anticipation. If it gets low enough, I may be inspired to pick one up.
