PSP2 Set for a Q4 Release and to be Revealed Jan 27th


MCVUK.com is reporting that not only will the PSP2 be released “within the Q4 period, perhaps as early as October”, but that Sony has told developers that “device ‘is as powerful as the PlayStation 3’.”

We should learn more soon, as “a press event in Tokyo on January 27th,” is planned to reveal the PSP2.
They also go on to say:

Sony is already plotting to reveal more at GDC and E3 after this month’s first tease.
‘PSP2’ will even use a media format to make sure retail has a part to play in the console’s lifecycle by selling physical software.
But the device will also provide access to plenty of downloadable content, smaller games and apps via PSN – and maybe even incorporate a phone, but not as a primary function

    I can’t wait for more news to unveil for the PSP2. Hopefully we will see the announcement on the 27th.

    I hope the system launches with some original games and not just PS3 ports.

    I hope they give these out free at E3…..i can dream right?

    I hope it’s more Internet friendly this time with MORE memory. The Psp SUCKED hard when it came to Internet. Also the placement of the power button sucked on my PSP-3000. Many times I’d be in a heated game just to have it turn off! RAAAAAAAAAGGGGGEEEE!!!

    I also hope they update psp2 more than they updated the PSP. They just basically abandoned the PSP as of a year ago.

    If the portable device can effectively deliver performance close to the PS3, that would be insanely impressive !!!!!

    I don’t even want to know how much it’ll cost if it’s packing some PS3 scale power.

    should be a interesting device. Might need to sell my psp before the announcement.

    I’ve just bought a PSP in december so I’ll be skipping any PSP2 until 2014 at the earliest.

    Now, just think how much a PSP2 with PS3 quality visuals will cost you and tell me you’re excited…

    I wonder if it will let me play my old PSP games on the thing…at least the downloadable ones. Iam never selling my PSPgo. I got the thing a month ago and cant Go with out it.

    Can’t wait i’ve had psp 1000 for a while so i’ll be upgrading to this if it impresses me enough

    as powerful as a PS3? with talk like that SONY is EXPECTED now to have TOP QUALITY games with PS3 graphics in them AND multiplayer that DOESN’T require freaking Adhoc/Adhoc Party but Wi-Fi like the PS3

    AND finally DUAL ANALOG, also a built in harddrive with at the LEAST 200gb since the PS3′s lowest is 250 right now

    yes most of this FEELS unrealistic…but this is what SONY gets for acting all high and mighty saying PSP2 is as powerful…so let’s see RESULTS SONY

    shadowcrazyalso a built in harddrive with at the LEAST 200gb since the PS3′s lowest is 250 right now

    Let’s keep in mind that this is a portable device ! Even the smallest (in gb size) laptop hard drive is already the same size than a PSP-3000 !
