With the advent of a large number of mobile games, more powerful mobile phones and portable game consoles such as Nintendo Switch, portable games take off again. However, the mobile field misses a game company very much. Sony has a long history of providing portable gaming systems, especially Vita and PSP. But what if the company introduced a new PlayStation portable game console? Would you like to see this happen?
We asked our readers this exact question in a recent poll. Find the result below.
Do you want to see the new PlayStation portable game console?
Since its release on August 28, we have seen less than 1,200 votes in this poll. Readers can choose between the two options, but from the results, we hardly need the second option.
The debate over the new PlayStation portable device is exciting. Sony can use its rich PS4 and PS5 library to add user-expandable storage space to the device through a microSD card, and introduce the smart touch of the DualSense controller. Those opponents do not seem to want to carry another game console with them, or think that Sony’s smartphones may replace the new PlayStation portable game console.

- Blind executor: There is no back touchpad or trackpad at all. People want buttons. This will not replace the mouse and keyboard. I definitely agree with storage. It also costs about $250 or less.
- Jason Laird: The truth is that when you can take out your phone, no one wants to take it with you. That and the fact that they will always use some dumb proprietary memory cards.
- Arabian Nights: Sony has already produced mobile phones. A very good, powerful phone that can easily handle even the most demanding Android games. And can be used in conjunction with the Dual Shock 4 controller. Why should they cannibalize their products? They can open PSNow to Android (probably exclusive to Xperia phones) and make Dualsense compatible, and enter the mobile market for less money.
- Sky high: I still own my PS Vita. It has been modified and all hackers are installed. But it mainly just sits and does nothing. There are so many PSPs. I have modified them and sold them. Vita is such a great design, but Sony abandoned it prematurely, or they may not really plan to support it in the long-term from the beginning. However, I would love to see a new handheld computer. One competes with Switch. Or at least be able to project your game onto the big screen. Yes, non-proprietary storage is required. This is a big problem for both PSP and Vita.
- Satmata: The next PSP (if Sony succeeds) must use reduced-scale PS5 technology. The problem with portable consoles is the physical media. Nintendo Switch’s use of cassettes actually makes developers/distributors more expensive than BD, because cassettes use NOR flash memory and are much more expensive than NAND flash memory. Most importantly, Macronix, the largest manufacturer of NOR flash memory, is still unable to produce 64 GB ink cartridges, and even Nintendo has avoided using 32 GB ink cartridges because it is expensive.
