Todd Greenwald with Signal Hill is predicting a strong showing for E3 2010. The major topics for this show are going to be with the handheld and motion control market, as well as several triple-A titles from the major publishers.
This ANALyst must have already played the PSP2 I guess. He knows about all of its features already.
'' it won't have a big impact'' Is just an opinion from this ''Analyst''.
It makes me laugh when people talk trash about pachter,look at the kind of crap comes out of hes competitors,pachter says things at time that'll leave you scratching your head,but this is flat out ignorant.
Based on the quote, it sounded like he was more referring to a PSP 4000 or N2000 (GO v2), than a full on PSP2. The article seems to put words in his mouth. "Sony may also launch a new PSP, which likely won’t elicit much more than a yawn from attendees and investors," If he is referring to a PSP 4000, I think he's right.
you not the only one, all analyst do is guess, well most of them anyway, pachter just the worse of the bunch
well if the psp2 just ended up being like the psp except with better power then that would be a yawn least we know it wont be download only
If the next psp has 2 sticks and at least has the graphic ability of the ps2 or something that would be sick. I still say if they add all that and added sixaxis to it it would be sick.
the psp has the power of the ps2 lol.. @Qface why wudnt it be download only? sure the pspgo failed but tahts only cuz the psp3000 was cheaper and most owned one of them already
the psp does not have the power of the ps2 btw anyways sony said themselves people prefer physical media and their test with the pspgo proved it so no sense or point making it download only would only hurt the system
PSP2 would have to bring something more to the table then just more powerful specs and better looking handheld games. Otherwise it will truly be a yawn because it's just another PSP with better looking games. They will either need to have a robust online service similar to iTunes and all these app stores, make it a phone, or do something innovative with the device never done before. Nintendo brings something new each time with every 'real' launch of a new handheld. Next up is 3D gaming. So you can say, yeah, this isn't just a beefed up engine.
I think both companies will be stepping up their game for the next handhelds. Nothing is set in stone, Sony could well take a considerable chunk of the next stage in the handheld market. No analyst is going to predict what happens, business Mystic Megs can only guess. On a sidenote why has Blaze only got one bubble? I've always thought the guy made good points on most things.
The PSP has near PS2 level graphics. I expect the PSP2 to have better than Xbox graphics. Possibly much better.
Wait I thought the PSP was actually more powerful than the PS2. PSP has a 333mhz processor and the PS2 only had a 233mhz processor.
Yeah Sony has to do something special to the PSP2 to get alot of people intreseted in it Nintendo has the 3DS to show of and we all know how popular the iphone is and yes it MUST have a second analogue
Psp2 better be a phone, have psn and 3-d, with everything the psp had, but better graphics, and a second analog stick or im not even looking at it.
In all honesty PSP2 NEEDS to wow desperately. The 3DS just needs to be marginally better than the DS/DSi/DSxL to be a success critically and sales-wise. PSP was a good portable device but Sony seem to going against Apple in terms of tech so they need to bring their A game and make the ipod touch look like old tech compared to the PSP2.
PSP WAS? I'm playing MGS:PW as of now. The only thing that is holding the PSP potential back is the nauseating piracy that drove publishers away the platform.
Agreed. The psp has potential, but unfortunately it can't really be taken advantage of in it's current form.
The PSP2 will be a Mile better if its got a second anologue stick.
That's all i want lol
That's all it needs. And not those stupid nubs that are on the psp now.
I'm finding it a TAD difficult for games like MGS:PW where the sensitivity of the stick is pretty important. It's tough to gently move it and there is really no in between its either slow or fast. I don't know how they would include DS3-like analogue sticks on a little handheld device but I'm sure its possible..
Pretty ignorant commentary by this "analyst", if you ask me. Sounds like he doesn't understand his markets very well. The 3DS doesn't really need to wow anyone to succeed. And the PSP2 is just a rumor. Heck, it's only half a rumor (we've heard about the GPU, but not really anything believable about the CPU or anything else). Not sure how it can be "yawn"ed away without any serious info. I'll bet Custer yawned when he heard there were some natives around in the area he was headed to, as well.
PsP2 is kinda my most wanted announcement.
PSP sucked! Worst money I've ever spent. NO GAMES!
listen to music read a comic watch a movie, surf the net, play online any of that. and games you never play god of war monster hunter logan shadows little big planet modnation racer and metal gear beside acid 2 none of these games what about killzone no madden mlb the show none of these. wow you must not be a gamer
for being an uninformed ignorant gamer. anyone can find games for PSP, even if that means cracking one. there are tons of great games, if you are unaware of them, you are horrible at keeping up with gaming news.
You must not be a gamer if you think that the PSP has no games, congrats!! On topic, the PSP2 will be a "yawn"? How does he know that? Oh right, he doesn't. :)
Shouldn't we wait and see them first, before we decide how people will react?
i dont know who this anaylist is but he should be fired a dual analog handheld with touch screen and droid software. would turn the world upside down even at 500
WTH is "droid software?" if you mean android OS which is what the droid is running then i agree
Thats it I'm gonna become an Analyst, if i can get payed to sit around and talk BS why not?
yet he isn't sure the 3DS will "wow" and instead assumes it NEEDS to wow why isn't it the other way around? as in...the PSP2 needs to wow as well as the 3DS, or else if they don't they will both be "yawn" i mean, i fail to understand how you know one product's acceptance by the general audience, but not the other (even though there is probably equally as much info on both) wtv..."gaming journalism" is pseudo-journalism filled with amateurs nonetheless, im more hypef for 3DS since im very interested on how they'll make it 3D, on the other hand hardly hyped for PSP2 since i doubt it'd even be presented. if so however, i'd love to see a cheaper smaller version of the normal PSP
ds best have screens the size of the current xl model but widescreen,nowdays the little screens dont cut it. both ds2 and psp2 will be awesome which ever comes out first. they will have to compete with apple and android aswell,cause they are slowly catchn up graphics wise with a few brand name devs
ha well im alot more interested in a psp2 than the 3ds. Unless psp2 doesn't duel analog in that case i will not buy one.
were gonna buy it anyway for kids ourselves everyone is nintendo they make good handheld. sony needs to give me a reason to sell my go and upgrade
is this conformation of a PSP2 then? or is this "analyst" talking out of his ass?
I'm thinking of a number... that number is 50 million, not bad for Sony's first attempt at a mobile console.
Pretty sure its more around 60 million now which is amazing considering no one has ever been able to compete with NiN for a handheld video game console.
Like i said before i love sony but stop with the handheld. Sony could put that money towards more game delopment which is already great.
I enjoyed my PSP... I will buy a PSP2 if they make one, consider all the advancements such as better games, a second analogue, larger memory, OLED screen, Downloads taking off.
sony have done well for their first attempt in the handheld gaming market, hell, even if they only sold half of what they have right now it would still be successful enough to warrant a psp2 and like mrv321 said, the stuff that is available for handhelds right means a PSP2 could be very awesome if done right
Not to mention it would most likely include a real friends list and trophies for games, and if it remains pirate free we could see a great deal of support for it unlike the current Psp.
This guy is a Nintendo Emploee...... That's the only reason I can come up with for those comment.s
I hope he is wrong but I have a bad feeling they won't go all out with a new PSP2 at E3. They're being too safe with the PSP. They need to push the envelope. I'll most likely just get my first smartphone, the iPhone 4 and merge 4! devices into 1. Phone+music player(ipod)+camera+gaming handheld(psp).
I would buy a PSP2 in a heartbeat if it has 2 analog sticks, a nice hardrive, and ps2 graphics AT LEAST.
I think that rather than a psp2, sony is going for the the PSPhone. There is no other reason why they would announce all the games beforehand. Im calling it, PSPhone FTW.
Is all that matters. If Sony is truly throwing out all this supped up hardware in such a small container, then it'll cost $300 or more! Also Sony doesn't have a great tract record for AAA titles for their Portable systems. Nintendo on the other hand will always have their fans and have done portables right since the beginning. The trust is there. Which is why Nintendo dominates, even with lesser tech and specs. Take Note Sony.
If Sony really releases the PSP2 and does it right they can count on me buying one. If needs to be a real PSP2 though. Not just some minor upgrades to the PSP. Two analog sticks must be included.
To be really really exciting people ....... NOT . ps a BIG YAWN to any analyst's Reading this ; )
lol yeah really psp is already snooze. "I'm thinking of a number... that number is 50 million, not bad for Sony's first attempt at a mobile console." Im thinking of a number also it's last place where sony is staying.
Bubbles+ . On PSP2 I would be REALLY disappointed if they go for a PSPhone. t would basically mean that they surrender the handheld market to nintendo which i don't care but I prefer ninty to have competition now. a PSPhone would focus on an entirely different market the same market which where Apple is around via Iphone and Ipad. I had a psp a long time ago traded it in for a ds and never looked back. The psp is good stuff. it just needs a few more tweaks. psphone and it becomes some casual shit.
The mobile gaming market is moving onto phones. They wont be giving and leaving Nintendo to own the market. They'll be doing what any other business in their situation would do. Change to meet demand. I find it amusing that by simply adding a phone feature to the PSP it suddenly becomes casual.
