This is a concept of what the rumorerd PSP2 could be.
With features such as:
An HD multitouch screen
Dual Analog, well... on the screen
And an internal hardrive
This could be the PSP fellow gamers have always wanted.
Awesome concept. I like the transparent buttons on the screen.
Would hate to drop that thing by accident.
Very bad concept, firstly it's incomplete the back has no design, no speakers, head phone slot, on/off button, wireless button etc. The mini blu-ray is a good idea as well as the ability to touch the screen for xmb options, the touchscreen dpad is a very bad idea as it is impractical and you'll probably end up breaking the screen when you have to button bash or "touchscreen bash". Also it needs physical analog sticks, and the R/L buttons look ridiculous.
Also it needs to be a lot wider so it doesn't look awkward like it does now.
I think a touchscreen would be great for xmb functions, etc.. but for gaming... I think it is a waste of time. You need an actual analog stick on it... I don't see how it would work as well with just a touchscreen dpad. But overall, as mentioned... I think it is long overdue for a psp overhaul. It could be so much more and I don't care what they charge for it.
Looks horrible. Impractical. Uncomfortable. The list goes on...and that's just from looking at it. So far my favorite concept is: http://img212.imageshack.us...
If they go ahead and make it into a phone then they may have something.
PSP doenst need an HD screen. HD capability on a small screen like that is not necesary and won't see much of a difference between a 480p screen.
Having noted this, I hope PSP get a 720p HD screen though.
i hope i can trade my phat and my slim for it . i know you have to make changes but come on i just pick up my slim couple months ago..
That's actually not a bad design mock-up. Would be very intresting to see what something like this could potentially cost. I like it and all but the transparent buttons and anolog thumb sticks hmmmm.... I'm not so sure how that would function with the entire interface being touch sensitive. You could accidentally bring up the xmb if the action got to tense. LOL!!!!
All in all it's rather pretty...
although probably pretty expensive if it was an actual HD screen an mini Blu-Ray, oh ad let's not forget the harddrive.
That looks sexy but after you would touch it then it would look bad because of the finger prints. So if this would ever become the PSP2 I hope that it would come in another color other then black.
Well I guess an option to lock the XMB could be possible, maybe on the side. thanks for all of the feedback
IDK, this one is neat and all but I find the other concepts posted on N4G a lot better.
I cant imagine a screen that size being HD, small screens dont need it...
that looks nice but wouldn't having the buttons on the screen make it harder to play?
Thats what I thought at first glance playing the Nintendo DS with the stylus. But if the game is good enough it's easily over shadowed being a problem.
in 15-20 years...
That damn thing is hideous. Why the hell are the buttons imbedded into the screen? This one is not a very good mock up. I liked the one from last week better.
mini bluray.. lol
are you... stupid or something?
I wonder why people disagreed with you since such a thing as Mini Blu-Ray discs already exists.
it woudl be stupid not to but real buttons and real analog stick on it.
Hello 500 dorra handheld, I wonder why people are clamouring for a PSP2 already when the original one still has a LOT of life left in it.
Are you guys seriously saying this could be great? pad on the screen? = WTF? how can you see what you're playing if your hands are all over it... it will certainly be a touchscreen but the buttons has to be separate! nice idea but not possible.. and mini bluray? lol
they could combine the 2 mock-ups. we might have a winner. Love the mini-blu though
Battery space / connection ports have not been allocated on this mock up. It does seem nice, but not 100% viable. (not enough buffering space around the screen.) Would like to still see the old WLAN hard-switch. I'll say this however, given the state of OLEDs and the size of Blu-Ray diodes, a touch version could possibly be in the future. Probably replace the red laser UMD drive for a BR-UMD. The last important component for making such a device is the processor. I just don't think there's one that would push a new generation of hand-helds just yet.
That looks terrible and impractical. Not even a good mock-up. I made better stuff in highschool CAD... why is this even posted?
Forget it at least for the next 2 to 3 years. The PSP has just been redesigned to the PSP Slim last fall. That costs a lot of money, Sony won't throw in much more for a totally new PSP so soon.
there is no need to release a new PSP soon there is still a lot of demand for the PSP especially with the connectivity with PS3 its been proven that PSP sales have been going up since the PS3 launched because of the Remote Play feature and now that the PS3 sales are going up then the PSP sales are probably going to pick up significantly as well the PSP2 is inevitable, but there is no need now
Actually PSP sales have gone up because of some other factors: * The introduction of the PSP Slim * Monster Hunter 2 (in Japan at least) * Upcoming games like God of War I have bought a Ceramic White PSP, because of the Slim edition and upcoming God of War + the homebrew fun. No intention to buy and connect to a PS3. Heck, almost all people I know with a PSP don't own a PS3, but a 360 or a Wii or both...
Everything is terrible but the screen and the little XMB bar at the bottom. That touchpad/onscreen controller thing is hideous though.
that mock is crap although the prospect of a resistance game on PSP is excellent
lol lol mimi bluray and Small HD screen this kid is off his rockers that alone will my psp2 cost around $600 and i know that alot of people will not buy $600 handheld but i really like the idea
'BD9 is a red laser DVD with BD contents on it. This disc should be rotated at 3x speed or more to satisfy the minimum transfer rate of 30.24 Mbit/s. These disks can be used for private storing and can be authored even without implementing AACS. BD9 was originally proposed by Warner Home Video, as a cost-effective alternative to regular Blu-ray discs. It is similar to HD DVD's 3x DVD' Wikipedia under bluray @ Fux 4 Bux, im really glad you did something better in highschool, no I really am. It would be sad if you didn't. Considering my limited resources and not even in high school yet. I know last week's model looked badass, and I'm not trying to outdo it anyway, I think its a great 3d model. I am just trying to show everyone my tale on what I would like for the new PSP (which I've haven't said either should come soon) but it seems I get flamed for that.
Aside from the finger prints you'd have all over the screen, I find it completely natural *Always have*, to rest your thumbs on both the directional pad and buttons...how are you supposed to do that? Wouldn't it just think you are holding down the button? Please sony, don't do this. Incorporate touch on the screen, but leave the buttons as physical buttons. I would love to be able to write/draw on the screen. Maybe put some sort of program that will convert words you write into text? Texting is a royal pain on the PSP.
Touchscreens for games are overrated.
Idea need some tweaks like actual buttons and dual analog stick but the hd touchscreen is cool no need of HDD when you can have faster SSD or flash memory. Sony should make something like this for psp2
never gonna happen. All i want is two analogs and more ram.
Mini BluRay, please no, not another new format, just put flash memory or a 1.8inch HDD in it and have all games as digital downloads. Not so sure about the touchscreen either, without the feedback (particularly from the thumb sticks) it will be very difficult to play particularly racing games, also that it will be flat will make it kill your hands to use for more than 10mins. In all I preferred the slider one shown on Kotaku yesterday.
dry hands will scratch that to death
lol why did this get approved.
I don'y know but whoever posted this story is a dumbass huh?
ohh shyt, i bricked my psp2 and all my games on the 60gig's were deleted ohh how stupid am i, that i dont support a disk format that will hold the information forever n ever i never had anything apple, i dont like ipod's or iphone's or mac personally, i dont like how people spend lots of $ for their products and in the same year they release a better newer one,, that is as my name
the PSPoor is a failure it hasn't got the amount of quality games that the DStunning has
How can you comment so fast??????
anyway. this mock up is horrible and i can come up with 10000000000 better layouts. all this mock up is is a iphone and they riped off the psx iphone emulator for the touch controles. FUCCKING HACKS! GO SUCK ON SOME BIG FAT C0CKS IF YOU HAVE SO MUCH TIME TO DO STUPID ASSK SHEEIT LIKE THIS!
That looks so awesome I wonder when it comes out. Another thing they need to add to the new PSP is one more toggle both with better motion like off the DS3. You should have Skype (Phone), PlayTV, Home, Yellow Dog Linux Program built in and be able to download PSN and PS3 games to your NEW PSP2. I also think the Wi-Fi and GPS signaling should be built in just like what the PS3 has already. 1080P resolution sounds awesome and a built in Blu-ray player also sounds awesome. I still think this new PSP2 will be like $400 on release. I think I'll just hold of on buying the PSP Slim and just wait for the PSP2. I already have a PS3 so I'm fine but this sounds even cooler. Touchscreen= sweet! Also they should make this PSP2 backwards compatible w/ the PSP. If the PSP2 does come out soon it's probably going to come out in 2009 when the Xbox Portable drops. PSP2 is gonna be sweet!
ok this is the 2nd or 3rd thing i have seen on New psps
THey just released the Slim who really thinks there going to revamp a new one so soon? I mean game boy doesn't even remake them that fast.
And who ever made the picture for this Doesn't play videogames...
Why would i want my thumbs in the way of the game im playing i dont care how cool the see through buttons are.
And i love the Touch screen idea but... one Grain of sand on ur greasy fingers would tear up the current screen in 5 min... So not likly
I like the PSP its on a come back... the Dev kit cost was dropped so it should get a rush of people porting games or makin gnew games for it.. Its far more usful than a DS.. If they should change anything give it a hard drive.. My ipod nano has 20gigs how dose the psp have 0
The other concept i saw was No umd drive.. thats stupid too because they slaps all the people who made movies and games on umds right in the face.. and all Movies and games bade until now wouldn't work on those machines.. I mean come on do you really see that happening?
Sony wants umd to pick up with Blueray... If they were smart.. they would include umd versions of the movies they sell on BLuray included with it.
And while im venting in Gods name why do they Have the spider man trilogy or seasons of tv shows on so many discs? isnt the point of blue ray how much u can put on them?
All Blu-Ray discs have 1080p content; 1080p has resolution almost 4 times that of conventional signals, and almost 5 times more than American TVs. This therefore, takes up 4-5 times more data! If you have a 7GB movie on a DVD9, that leaves 2.4Gb. But with a 1080P version of that film, that would take up approximately 30Gb. However, sound is a much bigger feature in Blu-Rays than it is in DVDs. There are so many different encodings of it, and Blu-Ray support up to 7.1 surround sound. It certainly is possible to fit almost an entire season on one disc, but then it would have to be in SD, which would not go down well with the fans. Multiple discs and stunning 1080p video, or 1-disc 480p/576p video? I know which one I'd choose.
WOW! God knows how much it would cost though.
I like the idea but i agree the design is horrible and it will burn your wallet.
that has got to be the worst concept i have ever seen for a psp...would never work, and if they made it work, it would be a trillion dollars
I just wish they would focus on some awesome games for the PSP I have now.
That'd be crazy if it could work... but no chance anytime soon :)
did anyone realise that resistance fall of man is being played on psp. look at the health bar its the same as the ps3's resistance must be a psp resistance 2 or 3. controls look hard with the gamepad in the screen how would you walk forwards with no analog. hopefully they change this
i dont know, but the design sucks, sorry
metaphorically speaking. BTW, design something better. What would you improve? I want to see it.
WTF this wont work.....lol mini blu-ray and touch screen analog control...is total bulls....
with all the talk, ill just have to wait on the new psp before i buy one.
It's laughable.. without a Memory Stick Pro Duo Hoc HD Xtreme slot. You know, the feature we're all hoping for besides UMD-ray.
It can be a gps too. Mini BD disc and huge screen would the crazy.
Rumoured??? I hope this is true!!!! It will be great!!!
I suggest: OLED Screen - 1080p,etc... 2 analogs - Come ON! L1,L2,R1,R2 - If it will play old PS1/PS2 games, it MUST have all buttons Built in - Wifi (internet), Bluetooth (extra PS3 controller), Mic & Cam (Skype, Digital/Video capture), and GPS Keep UMD (for Older PSP games) Keep the Video-Out Feature Keep it thin And I don't think Touch Screen is a bad idea, just don't make it too much for games. But instead for other purposes (ie: XMB navigation, Text messaging, etc.) IF it was gonna have rumble, PLEASE make the battery last LONGER! :P If Sony made a PSp2 like that, I'll sale my PSP and PS2 for the pre-order cost. (notice I said Pre-order cost, cause you KNOW Sony would Price that sucker High!)
....Sony has already developed Minidisc BluRay Discs, so there is some element of truth to this whole thing.
uhhhhhh how is this news?
lol I love it when amature 3d modelers think they can do good stuff. that other PSP design was far better. This is just crap.
lmao. you should talk. I remember battling it out with your n00b ass about some 3d sh1t a while back on another account. From what I remember, you couldn't do much better than this at all. you suck. and you're still ugly. nice av.
A HDD? This is meant to be a PORTABLE device!
