Look away now, Kaz, because it looks like this KIRF NGP is on track to beat the real deal to market. Known as the iReadyGo RG on Chinese forum CNGBA, this shameless rip-off is set to be a near-carbon copy of Sony’s upcoming console with the same 5-inch touchscreen, though it isn’t clear whether this will also be of OLED nature or of identical resolution. Other differences include the missing touchpad on the back, as well as the buttons’ color scheme that’s no doubt “inspired” by the Xbox 360 controller. The rest of the rumored specs include a 1GHz Cortex-A8 CPU, 720p camera, HDMI-out, and video playback compatibility for MP4, WMV, AVI, and many more. But what’s most interesting is that apparently we’ll be seeing some Android love here, and indeed, iReadyGo is currently recruiting six senior Android developers. No word on pricing or availability yet, but we’ll probably wait for Sony’s quad-core offering, thank you very much. Head past the break for a shot of the RG’s glossy back.

[Thanks, rrw]

A Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker clothing line?! Yes, Snake, a Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker clothing line. Konami is entering CO-OPS with a company called Musterbrand to produce clothing inspired by, and even based on, the characters and imagery from last year’s PSP game.

The items range from logo t-shirts to replicas of clothing worn by prominent characters — Kazuhira Miller’s shirt is included in the lineup, sans jaunty yellow neckerchief. Perhaps that’ll be in the next release; Konami and Musterbrand plan to update the line “quarterly and surrounding certain special events throughout the year.”

As for the current items: you’ll be able to Peace Walk in game-inspired pants starting April 11, when the first pieces will be available online in North America (probably through Konami.com).

Mock it up, talk it up and leak it out all you want, only Sony has the power to actually bring the so-called “PSP2″ into the world — and that moment has come. The “sequel” to the PlayStation Portable was made official today (like, just now!) during a press event in Japan, looking every bit as — well, that thing looks like the PSP, doesn’t it?

Codenamed “NGP” — that’s “Next Generation Portable” Entertainment System — the device has been designed on five core tenets: Revolutionary User Interface; Social Connectivity; Location-based Entertainment; Converging Real and Virtual; and PlayStation Suite Compatibility.

But what does that mean? For starters, the new hardware features dual analog sticks; a 5-inch OLED display (960×544 resolution — 4x the PSP’s); 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS; front touchscreen and rear touchpad (woah!); and, for good measure, the same six-axis motion system that propels the Move, plus a three-axis compass — oh, and we can’t forget the front and rear cameras (those come standard these days). Of course, it plays games, too, which will be offered on new flash memory-based cards (so long UMD!).

The “NGP” is coming this holiday season.

Update:
Complete hardware specs, provided by Sony, are posted after the break.

Japan’s insatiable hunger for Monster Hunter can only be cured with … actual food, inspired by Monster Hunter. Chain restaurant Anrakun is preparing a special menu of four dishes inspired by Capcom’s multiplayer hack ‘n slash, including a “cow bone” (pictured left) and boney sausages (pictured right). These delicacies are not cheap, going for 609 yen each (~$7.38).

These limited-time promotions are quite common in Japan, creating a niche kind of tourism. We’re guilty of taking part as well, having gone so far as to review Monster Hunter-branded ramen.
