Upon seeing both the size and power of Sony’s new Next Generation portable, it’s inevitable that the first question many people asked was how long the battery would last – but Sony has assured that it will put up a decent display.
"We’ll have a good, solid battery life because of two factors," SCEE boss Andrew House told Eurogamer.
"It’s influenced our choice of flash media, versus incorporating a disc drive; and number two, the screen is large and gorgeous – it’s also OLED, which is fantastically good for low power consumption as well. So there are two, I think strong, features there that bode very well for battery life."
It has also been confirmed that, much like an iPhone but unlike the current PSP, the battery will not be removable. Apparently this is due to the rear touch panel.
