Sony's Next Generation Portable Entertainment System codenamed Sony NGP was flaunted!

Well they aren't really touch screens but the latest Sony PSP has touchpads everywhere!

Sony just made it official, the Sony NGP (codename) which features a lot of stuff you have not have in any previous PSPs. One main feature of the NGP is that it features a touch screen main display, yeah just like what you see in the photo.
