The Walkman section of Sony’s booth at IFA this week has an automatic information system that pops up specs on a central display for each model as you pull it away from its base, but there was one unknown model chilling out that popped up nothing more than a “coming soon” message when you yanked it out. What gives, Sony? Why the mystery and suspense? Why are you doing this to us? Well, a little digging through the menu system reveals that it’s the NWZ-S754, presumably the follow-on to last year’s S745. Given the lack of specs we weren’t able to glean much, but both the black and silver units on display were 8GB models; naturally, we’d assume larger capacities are also in the cards when it launches. The display was contrasty enough so that we’re thinking it could be OLED, which would make sense — they do OLED on a number of other Walkmen models already — and the “Mickey Mouse effect” of the button layout has been diminished a bit. That’s good or bad, we suppose, depending on just how hardcore of a Disney fan you are. More details when we have ‘em.
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is coming out for the PSP soon, and in classic Sony style, we’re being treated to a custom-painted W252 Walkman to celebrate the event. This wearable MP3 player can fit 2GB of your favorite stealth action theme music, and gets the party started with six preloaded tunes from the Peace Walker soundtrack. Beyond that, you’re getting that gorgeous camo outfit and the same water-resistant durability as the less Limited W250 models. Full PR and one more pic after the break.
