SCEE PRESIDENT David Reeves has told MCV that Sony currently has no plans for a 'PSP 2'.
there definetly will be a psp 2 just not yet maybe late next yr or the yr after
When the current one is selling better now than it ever has?
Because the next handheld will be called the Sony 2!
There will be a PSP2. But i dont think its going to happen that soon. Id say perhaps in 3 years we will see a psp2. Dont think it will happen any earlier then that, maybe later. I dont really hope they release it any sooner then that either, because i want it to be a significant upgrade. I want to see smooth handheld games without jaggies and without to much compromise because of the hardware. Or even better, games that will actually look really good even when you plug it to your TV. Now that would be a kick ass gaming device.
It's going to stay on the market longer than that. All console manufactures want their current systems to sell as long as possible before going on to the next thing. And of the next PSP is supposed to be as powerful as a PS3, than it's not coming out until the PS3 is hitting it's fade away stage. I predict we won't see any new console until after 2010. DS 2: 2010 - 2011 PSP 2: 2011 - 2012 Wii 2: 2011 - 2014 (If it keeps selling it's going to stay around) Xbox 720: 2012 - 2013 PS4: 2013 - 2014
Sony currently has no plans for a PS3 price cut ether. Because if you new about it you would just wait a month or 2 and save a hundred bucks.
Exactly, if people knew there will be a PSP2, they will wait for that to come out instead. I'm sure it won't come out for awhile, and I'm guessing PSP games can be played on it, but it will probably be a lot more like an iPhone with integrated flash memory.
Right now companies are worried about surviving the recession. Something as costly as developing a new PSP will have to wait, but it will come.
Id put money on it that they've been "working" on a PSP follow up for sometime.
the PSP doing so well now around the world ofcourse they have no plan for PSP 2, few more years maybe....?
They're almost out of little girl panties and bento boxes.
I'd imagen they'll try to hold out with the PSP2 as late as possible, and release the PS4 slightly early unless the PS3 suddenly starts to really show a massive profit. That way they can release them both side by side and really get some good features between them both.
heh Why would they have plans for a PSP2? They haven't had any plans for the PSP yet.
i think they are taking the 10 year approach for the psp as well. since it came out roughtly 2005, id expect a successor in maybe year 7 of its lifespan. so 2011-2012 expect a psp2. there still plenty of directions the current psp can go. They can do an apps/homebrew store. put out a keyboard. language learning software. finally release a freaking camera and gps in the usa. video streaming on the web browser. internal memory storage. another analog nub. release games on umd and download at the same time. add psn friends lists. home integration. we have ps3 franchises that can go portable and sequels to portable games. motorstorm, littlebigplanet, another killzone, another socom, another god of war, another metal gear solid, jak and daxter, ratchet and clank, devil may cry, resident evil, grand turismo, grand theft auto, tekken, soul calibur, star wars battlefront. then we have franchises in development. square has quite a few games and resistance retribution, tenchu, the sports games have been good as of late.
I can verify to you without a single doubt that this is BS
I hope they don't make a new one just yet. I haven't played that much on my current PSP.
Only a 12 year old would believe that. PSP2 in 2010 confirmed.
well of course he's gonna say that there are no plans for a psp2. if he said that there was, then the psp-3000 would have horrible sales.
why would there be a psp 2? didnt the first one flop? well, the piracy is just insane on it but people somehow still buy it. even with no games.
The same reason there was an Xbox 360 after the flop of the first one? Plus, the PSP sold more units so far than the 360. That's hardly a flop. I fail to see your point.
