In this brief “emergency” episode of VGH, the crew discuss the recently announced Sony NGP (a.k.a. “not the PSP2”) and the PlayStation Suite. Paul also resists the urge to make Ridge Racer and Giant Enemy Crab jokes.

We speculated in the show that Sony might offer contracts or some kind of subscription model for 3G connectivity on the NGP. They’ve since confirmed that 3G access will cost extra, and there will even be multiple versions of the NGP, with and without 3G capabilities. (This update concludes VGH’s “Breaking News” coverage for the year.)
