The features set of Sony's "Next Generation Portable" remind me of the PlayStation 3 unveiling: stuffed with SO much tech that it instills a lusty "I want that" mentality. Forget that it'll take developers eons, if ever, to actually make use of these features. Rear touch pad? Wow.
But all the fancy design elements in the world can't make up for fundamental oversights. The old PSP controls are akin to the Nintendo 64 controller. The single analog stick plus button scheme is an evolutionary cripple, like some lungfish that can barely flop around on land, yet has given up on gills preventing it from returning to the water.
Viva la dos thumbstickos!
