Sony released its PSP-2 aka “NGP”.

Finally after the heaps of rumors of how the psp-2 is going to be and some fake photos, Sony has launched its NGP (Next Generation Portable) in Tokyo.
It is really next generation it is the first device to have a quad-core processor supports 3g for mobile online gaming on the go.It also supports wi-fi and GPS. It has the dual analog sticks like the play station controller. It has tons of features based on 3g and gps. It also features motion censors and dual camera(front and back). This also has a back touchpad along with the led touch screen.Now I think NGP means Nintendo Got Pwned Bcoz nintendos 3d gaming console launched previously this month is nothing compared to this.

Gaming Can change the world.

As per Jane McGongial who is a game developer games make people better. You may be thinking how people who waste valuable time on useless things like games can change the world?.Yes the games do not add a credit to your career but it makes you a good person by teaching you how to make good decisions.

While playing games people think nothing is impossible.They dont give up by one or two defeats they will try until the mission or challenge is completed.The same should be implemented in real life that is the challenge. Here are some stats that blow your mind:-total play time of all the players of world of warcraft is over 50 billion hours and halo 3 players have 10 billion kills in total. I have given only an example of two games you can imagine the rest.
As a famous writer said if a person does any work for 10000 hours he will be a master of it. so if we find a way to convert this game awesomeness to do productive work then the gamers can change the world.
Watch the below video its awesome video after watching this you will be convinced that gamers can change the world.
