Remember the shock when Sony entered the handheld market. PSP?? Many experts have predicted that sophisticated consoles will mean the end of Nintendo’s dominance in the portable sector. The PSP was undoubtedly a commercial success, but it wasn’t enough to release the Nintendo DS, which sold a whopping 154.02 million units worldwide. Estimated 82 million units of PSP).

Sony’s successor, the PS Vita, was much less popular, with estimated sales of 10 to 15 million units. This is the fact that Japanese tech giants have withdrawn from the handheld arena and instead focused their energy on the home console line. It was a wise move when it came to the robust performance of the PS4.

Since then, Nintendo has integrated its domestic and handheld businesses into one platform, Switch. Switch has sold 100 million units since 2017.Given the current market conditions, it’s unlikely that Sony will consider re-entering the handheld (and is the switch even a “right” handheld console?), But the designer. Andrea Galarini When Nicola Petzzotti We have created some concept renderings that show what the “next generation” PlayStation Portable will look like.

Of course, the unit borrows a lot of ideas from the switch-including a wireless charging dock that sees the console slide horizontally instead of vertically-and the overall design is very close to that of a Nintendo machine. This dream system doesn’t seem to be physically “docking” to the TV, but one person has the ability to connect players to wirelessly throw gameplay onto the TV. You can play on the console and the other person can pick up and use the DualShock controller. Main TV screen.

These renderings certainly look part of it and are often mistaken for Sony’s official shots, but it’s unlikely that the 2022 PlayStation Portable will be realized soon.
