    Seems like they need to stop inventing consoles and start putting some R&D into batteries.

    No surprise there…New Devices are always Hell on Battery Life. Believe me there is new Technology out there for longer Battery Life, Tons of Articles about it are always in my PopSci Mag…But it is just like Oil..won’t do anything till they have to!

    If that’s true, 4-5 hours isn’t too shabby.

    Presumably it’ll be one you can replace like that of the original PSP, sealed units piss me off.

    Battery life is practically a non-issue nowadays anyway since everything comes with a charger.

    Remember when you had to buy new batteries for your GameBoy every time they ran out?

    Just buy a couple of extra ones for those long train journeys.

    We all knew it’d be a hungry little hippo..

    The OLED screen would play a large factor, it’ll use like 40% the power of an LCD in a dark setting, about 60-80% in a regular setting but up to 3 times more with a pure white background.
