More PSP2 Rumors!


Still to be considered a rumor, many more details are popping up all over. Some great news, some bad news. We need to here that it is BC, there is an option for getting UMD’s software on it.

* MCV rumoured last week that Sony “could” announce PSP2 at E3.
* VG247 goes digging. According to a source familiar with the matter, it’s “99 percent” it isn’t an E3 reveal.
* But there’s much, much more.
* Multiple British sources have confirmed that PSP2 NDAs have been in place at publishers and developers for many months.
* PSP2 has two cameras, one forward and one backward facing.
* It has a touch-screen, but apparently it has retained the trademark physical PlayStation buttons.
* UK sources were previously working towards a “2010″ release. This is now “2011″.
* One source would be “amazed” if there was any kind of physical media involved. We’ve been told it “could” be 3G-enabled, as opposed to the WiFi-only PSP go. This bit was sketchy.
* Multiple PSP2 games are being made in Britain right now. Some have even already been canned.
* There have been “finished units” in the UK, but we haven’t spoken to anyone that’s seen a final case.
* When asked directly about reveal timing, one source said, “If the games were aiming for end 2010, beginning 2011, and now it’s a 2011 release, I’d say a gamescom or TGS announce for launch early next year”.
* One source told us the machine is “fucking powerful,” being based on a four-core Cell CPU. PS3 runs on an eight-core version.

    If that info is true then Sony is trying to go after the 3DS with the same strategy they did to fight the DS with the PSP and we know how well that has worked for them…

    I just hope that they can do something about the battery life. Backwards compatibility with all of my PSP downloads would be sweet too.

    I hope the new PSp will feel better in your hand and have all the buttons on it like a PS3 controller. So many games feel limited without another analog stick and L2 R2 buttons. If they can solve that, many more developers will make better quality games for the PSp .
