Gamespot Impressions:

The upcoming device is actually surprisingly light with the dazzling screen taking up a fair amount of real estate on it. The button and analog stick layout feels familiar and comfortable. The sticks themselves feel good; Sony used the term micro analog sticks and it seems pretty apt. They have the give that’s comparable to the sticks on the PS3’s Dualshock controllers which make them comfortable to use. The shoulder buttons feel a bit thinner than the original PSP’s, but work out well.

The touch functionality takes some getting used to but works well. We found that the front facing touchscreen was responsive and not as much of a smudge magnet as we expected. While there were Sony staff members on hand with microfiber cloths at the ready, we noticed that the screen didn’t look so bad after we played with the system for a bit. The back facing touchscreen took some getting used to and seemed to respond best to a light touch as opposed to our initial Frankenstein-like mashing.

Rumors
Eurogamer states that it has about a 6 hour battery life will be sold at a loss.
