This is a quick, no-news update: Sony isn't saying how long the battery on the Sony NGP will last, nor are they revealing the price point of the "New Generation Portable" handheld gaming device. According to Sony Boss Kaz Hirai, the device is still in prototype phase, so final stats on the batteries and a final decision on the price can't be announced yet.
Rumor has it the device's battery will last 4-5 hours, which seems reasonable give the impressive technical specs the system boasts-- as long as the power lasts long enough for a flight across the country, I'll be happy. New devices are notorious for their short battery life. As for the cost: Your guess is as good as anyone's.
