Sony’s latest handheld game console comes in the form of Next Generation Portable (NGP) which is probably the successor to the PlayStation Portable. At the press conference in Tokyo, Japan  today, the NGP claims to incorporate 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, 5-inch OLED touchscreen with four times the resolution to the current PSP, touch pad on the front and rear, two analog sticks, front and rear cameras, GPS and electronic compass.

However, it is going to be a long wait before you see the game console in stores as Sony said it will be launched this coming holiday season. The company also claims that the NGP’s graphics are of PlayStation 3 quality and some of the games that will be available include Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, WipeOut, Resistance and Hot Shots Golf.

Sony has also announced the forthcoming PS Suite which will make PS content available on Android smartphones and tablets, although it won’t be available until next year.
