i too believe that sony will announce a psp 2 . sony is the only company that i trust out of the three top gaming companies to make a hardcore portable gaming device that is able to produce amazing graphics , games and online gaming from anywhere via a 3g/4g connection.

They'll announce it, show a mock up then next year they'll show a near final or final version and by early 2012 it'll come out; or maybe even late 2011

Cueil2654d ago

we were thinking it would probably use the Tegra 2 or the Snapdragon... both are a great deal more powerful and use less battery life then the current PSP

How does cez still have bubbles?

If they do announce a new PSP, I hope for backwards capability. The least they can do is allow us to play the downloaded versions of PSP games.

hamoor2654d ago

you're right
PSP2 must happen in e3
The psp 1 is getting to old and outdated
New hardware would be very nice
Imagine....
OLED HD screen
graphics that is something between ps2 and ps3 graphics
wait...this is sony,no need to imagine anything
SONY MAKE,BELEIVE.

why the hell would sony announce an updated version of the same system they showed off at last years e3? honestly?

if anything it would be nice to briefly here them mention that they are working on one but for them to come out and show it off a year after they showed off their last model seems more silly than actually realistic.

"The psp 1 is getting to old and outdated"
-which is exactly why they made the pspgo. did you guys forget about that are something? i know the pspgo is no where near as good as the 1-3rd gen psp's but c'mon, your kidding right?

it seems like too many people are getting caught up in to the hype. it just like how people are saying "Killzone 3 is coming out in 2010" and actually believe its going to happen. why in the world would sony release 2 of its best console exclusive fps's (resistance 3 & k3) around the same time? we're talking about in the oct - dec months too. oh, and let's not forget that it that these games would be going up against halo reach and black ops which are going to do multi-millions within the first week, so for sony to oversaturate the shooter market this year by adding both R3 and K3 to the list of shooter games for fall 2010, it would seem as if they were not trying to get as much sales as they would like.

R3- probably in Oct or a few weeks after black ops is released
K3- early next year. possibly around the same time heavy rain and gow 3 were released this year.

I don't know if it'll be at this E3 I'm really thinking next year's or this year's TGS (which seems more like it with a March 2011 release date). But they need to hurry, because phones are making an impact in the gaming world, and Sony needs to get in before it's too late.

The PSP 2 or PSPhone as I call it, needs to have all the features to be able to compete with the best smart phones on the market.

I dunno I'm still betting on another PSP SKU. Like a 4000 or a PSP Go with a UMD drive.

hamoor2654d ago (Edited 2654d ago )

i doubt it
Ds is already out selling the psp and let nintendo release the 3ds without a competition would be plain stupid
I guess if they launch the psp 2 first it will effect the sales A LOT!!!!!

Ssxtreme362654d ago

wait a minute, didn't the same people say that the psp2 was going to be shown at last years e3 as well but in all actuality it turned out to be the pspgo?

i know you guys are hyped up about getting a psp2 (i know i am but if it doesn't have 2 analog sticks then fuck it) but really? do we need to recycle this same old rumor every year?

hamoor2654d ago

yeah but this time nintendo will show the 3ds
So i guess this is the perfect time for sony to reveal the psp 2 to steal the spotlight from the 3ds

Ssxtreme362654d ago

Nintendo releases a new ds every 9 months or so....so its hardly a surprise. if the ds xl or w/e happened to come out sometime after e3, they would have most likely shown more of it off at e3 so its nothing new...

as for it being the perfect time? well, people were saying the same thing last year when the psp go was announced so doesn't that sound alittle bit too soon to you? if they were to come out and say that "yes, we are working on the psp2" than i could see that being a realistic occurrence but for them to come out and show it off a year later at the same conference that they showed off their last model seems a bit silly.
it sounds more or less like what the fans want rather than what will most likely end up happening but then again, i could be wrong. i would love to see a real successor to the 1-3rd gen psp's that has 2 analog sticks.

and also, with the sting of games sony has lined up to be released on the orignal psp models they already have enough to steal the spotlight from the 3ds.

silvacrest2653d ago

"Nintendo releases a new ds every 9 months or so"

i doubt that true but even if it is, is there a big difference between the DS SKU's? bigger screen, small forfactor, these things are minor in comparison to 3Ds

same goes for the PSP, a PSP2 could really boost sales by ending piracy and maybe devs will actually make games for it

IF not this Year, it'll be Next year and It'll be an Awesome Piece of Tech that will Do More Stuff than Just Gaming

or i ain't buyin

the tech is there.

ThanatosDMC2653d ago

If they do announce it and the release is around November, then i'll probably give my black Go to some kid and buy it. I hope it's the as portable as the Go or at least make it pocket sized.

Cueil2654d ago

it makes sense combined with their predictions and their sales numbers... PSP is a dieing platform and they really need a rejuvinating shot to their portable brand
