Is Sony working on a new handheld gaming machine? That's what the Wall Street Journal seems to think.
sony main focus should be on the ps3 forget the handheld market
you think a singer would just quit singing after their 1st album sold 10 million?
I sure hope they are, the PS3 and 360 have been holding back PC's for long enough!
what would be awesome is if they made a portable gaming device with a screen as big and thin as the Ipad:) along with a few usb slots that give you the option to use your ps3 controller! with wifi of course;) Boom-chicka-bow-wow!!
I agree. If PSP wasn't a money maker, then they would be out of the business already.
PlayStation Portables are in the Market to Stay, you don't want it, don't buy it, but there are +60m people enjoying that Device, I only hope Sony this Time make sure to create an Unhackeable Device, well they learn the Lesson with the PSP, so we can expect the best for the PSP2...
@Nyc_Gamer are you mad? forgetting the handheld market will be a huge mistake for sony handhelds sell way better than consoles
They'll release a psp2 and it won't have piracy problems. Which means it will quickly become a very profitable and supported system with lots of games. The thing that mainly holds the psp back is piracy keeping good devs away. Aside from recently with some games but the amount of game's for it is still pretty lacking. It only gets the great game's it's been getting because sony is putting up the cash to support it.
i will get it matter of fact i had two psps...
"More interesting than the idea that Sony is working on a new gaming machine, perhaps, is the notion that this new device may not be a Playstation Portable" Don't think this is a PSP2 (which might exist separately ?). I would think it's a PSPad.
I am SHOCKED. Sony working on a new handheld? OMFG unfuckingbelievable. NOT.
You will be shocked when you finally see what it's all about. If you are thinking PSP, you are dead wrong.
Your display picture...do you know something we don't?
this will be amazing, Nintendo 3DS and apple ipad will have no way of competing with this new sony device!
Ok lets be real here, i am a die hard sony fan and have been down since day 1, but this isnt a smart financial move, we all know nintendo owns this section of the gaming world, if anyone saw or attended E3 you saw the power of the 3DS, now for sony to beat that technology they would have to be better than that handheld which means goin in their pockets hard, and we know they would want to have the better handheld, and after they just started making profit on ps3 and getting back on top of xbox, this would be a bad move, look at psp and DS sales now, they are nowhere near equal, now do you all need glasses? the same thing will happen in the war of psp2 vs 3DS.
forget it it not true. with psp 1 and psp 2 on its way as well as keeping the ps2 and ps3 on the go with the new move and wotever else this will not be the case.
FAKE FAKE AND OH LETS SEE FAKE... How many reports of a supposed psp 2 have turned fake lets se........everyone.....
This wont be the PSP2. This is something else completely. You might understand it a bit more if you analyze my avatar.
So the next PSP is going to have Android intergration? :)
Sony also working on new TV sets...and MP3 players...and A/V receivers...and cameras...and and and.
That rumor is one of the main reasons I didn't buy an ebook reader or ipad yet. I would so be freaking out, if that is true. I want a gaming machine, a skype video integration (incl. 3G Data) and a browser (with App store) + music and video player. Well, and a dock reader (pdf and whatever format they have now). ebook readers are worthless without a browser (e.g. if you study you'd want to look up references). The ipad can't play games (look like sh!tty upscaled phone games). That thing would be the perfect combination of both.
Many iPad games look like upscaled phone games because that is what they are. It would be awesome to have a single device with all the features you mentioned, but you'd better be prepared to pay for it.
TBH, can't be much more what the ipad costs. As a gaming device - maybe with a 3G contract - it has to be below $500 or something. I think it will be very competitive. It will just point out how overpriced the ipad is.
I like my PSP. I'd buy a PSP2.
A playstation pad? Why does it feel that Sony is the 'me too' company and no longer the innovative one it used to be?
