Will we see a PSP 4000 instead of a PSP2 this year? According to a japanese retailer Sony will release a new PSP facelift of their current model.
I want a PSP2!! Hope they bring it with 3D and touchscreen...
So you want Sony to copy Nintendo yet again??
what's wrong with that? sony will just make their tech better. so far they're one for one with the move.
but no one is going to buy it, just the fanboys. Which i dont have a problem with, if i were a sony fanboy i would want one too. but to the consumers it will just seem as if they are ripping off nintendo and even if the tech is better it wont sell.. look at the ps3.
M$ copies everyone
PSP 4k and will release by december, announced at TGS with a price drop and will be announced after they reveal the PSP2(also at TGS).
DUDE STFU. Nintendo fanboys are saying that because Sony made a upgraded wii remote. And sony was doing motion controls and displayed it in 2001. So Obviously Sony been working on motion controls for a while. The only thing I could say is nintendo probably influenced sony to start doing motion controls again. OH and while your at it http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I am soooo buying it.
I can tell you're a Nintendo fanboy because your username is a horribly-misspelled homage to Yoshi, a Nintendo character. Kinda bad that you ride Nintendo's ballsack so hard and can't even spell their character's names right. How would Sony even be copying Nintendo? Sony were the first to even have ideas of 3D gaming when it comes to consoles. Just because Nintendo comes out with a 3D handheld first doesn't mean Sony is copying off them. And like Colonel said, Sony was experimenting with motion controls since the early 2000s, so the whole "ZomG Move is teh copyin Wii >_<" crap is null.
Ways I see it, much like the Wii-vs-Move plan, Nintendo will do it first, but sony will do it better later, once theyve witnessed the pros and cons of 3d/touchscreen etc
why would they announce a PSP2 and a PSP 4k?
who ever thought Sony would actually do this must be fools
Anything Sony makes is first announced and given a loose, but official launch window. Then it's delayed by about 6 months. So, there's no way it's coming out this year.
sounds like pure speculation and nothing more
It would be awesome! A PSPGo with UMD drive or a real new PSP 2.
I hope this is false. =\
Tons of retailers are listing it, it must be true!
Sony can't bring it out this year if its a big update to the 3000,there pushing 3d,ps3 & its games along with move how much money do they think us people have?
You're obviously selling out of your pocket.
I could see a big surprise announcement of a PSP2 at TGS this year, Sony may have been waiting to see the 3DS before revealing its own new handheld...longshot but who knows
remember him? he was the one that leaked the specs of the PS3 slim and all the fuss about cross-game-chat. this angers me though, because i want a PSP2 not another stupid rehash.
yep I remember him. But you cant really expect a PSP2 anytime soon, there are just not enough evidence for it with Sony's new marketing push and new games coming to the PSP
Usually I wait until after E3 to upgrade. But hopefully a new PSP - X000 comes out during TGS. If not, well, Warranty Upgrade. And NO there is NOT going to be a PSP2. Stop begging. Its not happening this year and probably not next year either.
A new system piracy has killed the psp
The longer Sony waits to reveal the PSP 2, the worse it will be for them with the 3DS on the horizon.
If it was coming out this year they would have showed it at E3 instead of touting all the titles that are coming out for PSP. This article is just stupid and lacks any common sense.
the article is talking about a PSP4000, 1000 to 3000 have been able to play original PSP games, why would you think this one wouldn't? seems like you got the PSP4000 and the PSP2 mixed up
How will Sony be copying 3D if Sony is one of the driving forces behind 3D? Toshiba, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, LG etc have already moved to 3D earlier this year and even their hand-held devices will be moving towards 3D. Saying Sony is copying Nintendo in the 3D department sounds stupid because all of these major hardware companies have been working on the technology for 6+ years. Oh By the way Nintendo never made their own 3D technology, they bought their 3DS screens from 'Sharp' who themselves are still working on glassless 3D technology. Hitachi on the other hand have made a glassless 3D screen that already outperforms the 3DS, that means the 3DS's screen will be out performed by other glassless 3D screens by the time it launches. Nintendo take existing tech and then claim that they invented it. EDIT: I would just like to say that I'm not for all this 3D bs because all of these company's should be working on holograms and not 3D from a 2D image.
Only just got a PSP Go the other week there, I love it :) The only thing im wanting just now is for Sony to get SOCOM Tactical Strike on the PS Store :(
Love my PSP Go too! Haters can hate but there's no denying the Go is a sleek, sexy beast! :D (plus the gorgeous screen makes the games look better!)
dayum I just bought a PSP 3000!
What's the point in modle #5 Sony? Give us a PSP2.
if there is a new psp , i hope the games will work on the old models too...
the ds is an incredibly strong brand they were able to let the Xbox get a headstart because it isn't nearly as strong of a brand but if they want to beat nintendo in the handheld market they can'tgive them that large of a headstart
do you really believe this is? You're talking about the strongest selling handheld devices. Nintendo doesn't need no head start. The games will sell the system. The PSP system was released in Japan on December 12, 2004, in North America on March 24, 2005, and in the PAL region on September 1, 2005. Nintendo DS would be released in North America on November 21, 2004. It was set to release on December 2, 2004 in Japan- on February 24, 2005 in Australia ($199.95); and on March 11, 2005 in Europe. they were release a month or so apart. IMO I don't think most of the PSP core gamers would of bought a nintendo handheld so we can see that if sony wants a larger piece of the pie, they will need to broaden their scope to attract new users. Most of the psp games aren't made for casuals and with the impending Goliath as the DS is we can only wait and see what the the development of AAA games as a boat load of casual games will look like on the system. Honestly I'm looking forward to sony's NEW PSP aka PSP2 and what it can do, not interested in an other update. But right now they'll need to add the kitchen sink to kill some of the 3DS's momentum.
I don't want a 4000, I want a PSP2! Dream launch games I'd like to see: - Tekken Tag 2 - Dissidia 2 (with more characters, a longer story and tag mode) - Metal Gear 1 remake - Fatal Frame (using an integrated camera, how cool/creepy is that) - Uncharted (with tons of multiplayer modes) - Killzone - Final Fantasy 6 remake - Zone of the Enders - Grand Theft Auto (Tokyo setting) - downloadable PS2 games!
funny how FF games on nintendo consoles get ported to other systems but it doesn't go the other way around. FFVII remake on the 3DS (exclusive would ... umm set the internet boys and girls on fire)
@OMG_Armageddon Nintendo ports? Like what? Square Enix develops exclusives for both Nintendo and Sony (ie. FF3,4 on DS, Crystal Chronicles on Wii, Dissidia on PSP) The only Nintendo ports I know of are from older titles (FF Anthology, Chronicles, Origin, Anniversary Ed....) And yeah, I can see Square doing ports of FF5, 6, and maybe 7 on 3DS, but that would disappoint a lot of fans. People expect to see at least FF7 done on an HD console (after seeing the PS3 tech demo)
We need a PSP 2, even if it has good games, nobody looks at it because 3DS is new...
if we see a PSP 4000 this year im betting it will be a PSPhone, PSP2 will probably come 2011-2012 im just hoping the interface is going to use the android OS but modified for the PSP, honestly, this would be such a good move for sony i cant emphasize this enough the android fanboys would love this (me 2)
I think a PSP4000 would be cool. I would like to see it being like the PSPGo but with having a UMD drive. I really like how the Go has a harddrive & I would like that for gaming.
I dont think it is actually possible to have something as sleek as PSPGo with an umd drive. In fact I think the umd issue is a big one for the PSP2. If it comes with UMD is like to get stuck with an slow, bulky and power hungry tech, if it doesnt it would mean no BC for PSP2. Pretty sure Sony want to get rid of UMD, but retailers and users with big umd collections are a roadblock.
