The figures quoted by SCE rely on playing with headphones, without using the wireless multiplayer capabilities of the device, and with screen brightness set in a specific range - leading to widespread speculation that using the full power of the system will bring the battery life down closer to the originally rumoured two hour level.

Oh god, to think this is only Ridge Racer, you can just forget long hours of playing with Grand Turismo 4 :blink:

I have to take my hat off for Sony because they are actually trying to make it into the handheld business; there's been way too much bitchin abou tthe battery life and whatnot.

 

Just test the thing out at the store (when it's released) before you grind it to the ground.
