A PSP2 fan-made trailer has hit the web, and it looks pretty cool.
Embed doesn't seem to work for me but if I click it, then i can watch it and it's pretty good.
Some very flawed design elements with that one. But, would be neat to see if they come up with something with some of the ideas there. Those dual analog buttons look like they'll break off like nobody's business is the first thing I thought, though.
the screen would be made of Gorilla Glass to make it tough and almost unbreakable.
That's one sick ass PSP2 :)
Great job on the video
What's with the disagrees it's a fan made trailer?
1) Needs smaller screen to save battery life and be portable 2) Needs Front and rear facing camera - invizimals and other playstation eye compatible games 3) Needs built in GPS - phototagging and multi player on the go 4) Needs SIM card slot - Phone calling only supported through bluetooth headset. No need to re-live the days of N-gage 5) HDMI output port - Phones can do it, This should be no different 6) Memory stick pro Slot - Would prefer an SD slot, but this is a sony product 7) Bigger buttons - Those buttons and nubs look waay too small 8) Needs same buttons as DS3 so games you buy in PS store can port to PSP 2 9) SECURITY!!! - Pirating games if fun, but that's preventing trophy support 10) Needs MSpro type cartridge instead of UMD - less battery power, quicker access
"Phone calling only supported through bluetooth headset. No need to re-live the days of N-gage" i disagree, what if i lose my bluetooth or leave at home, im screwed, if the dell streak can pull it off so can this micro SD card support is standard in all smartphones except iphone, the PSP2 should support it the overall design would be to hard to hold while playing and yeah, the buttons are to small and screen to big
i disagree, what if i lose my bluetooth or leave at home, im screwed, if the dell streak can pull it off so can this <RE> You have to resort to text. Built in microphone and built in speakers are soo terrible that it's not even worth using. micro SD is not a standard. It's a IP that needs to be paid for. Plus Sony owns the rival format to SD. They will not pay their rival.
i meant standard in the sense that most smartphones have them, even the latest sony smartphones do, the x1, x2, x10 and x10 mini use them also, i would rather look silly using the the built in speakers then be forced to use bluetooth or text choice is better even if you personally wont use it
Other actual tablets sure. But its not a handheld.
What do you mean too big, it's a perfect size. The only tiny problem I find with the PSP2 is the joysticks being too close to the dpad and buttons.
It'll obviously be better then the DS since it's newer.
way to big, Sony would never do this, PSP is ment to be able to go into your pocket i don't see why 2 would be any different, the joystick are just way to far apart, its just going to feel weird since your fingers aren't wrapping around like a controller or other handhelds, just lay flat n the back surface. Tough screen i would like, but make the psp2 thesame or a little bigger then psp, psps was the perfect size i have to say, touch screen just give it a pen or stylus, or don't even do a touch screen. Bigger like this is not the way to go PSP TABLET = NO
If they want to make it big as a tablet the must offer better support than the PSP currently has.
I agree, I think it's to big. The PSP2 should able to fit in my pocket. I'll feel awkward going outside with a iPad sized PSP. Good thing this is fan made.
There is a reason why it's called a tablet, they are supposed to be big. Now that didn't stop the iPad passing the 2 million mark after launch.
A bigger PSP would be a better EBook reader and internet browser, which I think they are aiming for, and I personally like the bigger screen.
I think they should release 2 models, a tablet and a portable, like the Apple IPad and IPod.
-The touch screen should eliminate the need of another analog
-An option to view the image on the TV, streaming or thru wire
-The start screen should resemble the Sony Dash
Nothing like ive imagined, and i dont know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
It's fan made. -_- And it's way too big compared to the D-pad/Face buttons/Analog sticks. I would rather have big buttons than a big screen. >_> But again, it's fake. So it doesn't matter :P
But for being fan made, it seems the maker of this ran out of imagination. It looks way too simple.
What gave you that idea? I read "fan-made trailer" and figured this was official. Thanks for the heads-up.
Good thing is that the PSP 2 looks awesome
Bad thing is that its not the actual PSP, that's a prototype
EDIT: Who's disagreeing with us all, must be those 360 fanboys ay O_o
"Must be those 360 fanboys"
Why would they disagree with you? If you want to go there it was probably Nintendo guys..
its not even a prototype -_- fan made
i disagree, that does not look awesome for a PSP, if it was something else that wasn't psp may be yes, PSP ment to fit in your pocket hand held gaming device are ment to go in your pocket, carrying a tablet to play games and such no, especially if its ment to be the next psp (which its fake duh)
I'm so sick of seeing touch-screens everywhere.
Misleading title......... skip this article
inb4 Sony's own iPad
i like it!...lol but i still like my idea better: its basically a dual shock 3 with a screen,ect on it.ROFL
Pretty close to what I've envisioned for a psp II.....also, some of the rumors out there point to this being close to what Sony has planned for it.
Cool features that I hope PSP2 will have, though the design was crap.
Uh. Doesn't fit in my pocket? What a silly fan video. Who would want dual analogs, or game controls at all, on something that weighs as much as an iPad? That wouldn't be very fun to hold/play.
lol nice assumption on how much it weighs considering its not even a real psp
News 4 gamers.
buttons too small analogs to close to buttons
In case anyone else cares - PSP3000 - $149 PSP go - $200 http://www.amazon.com/Sony-...
I LOVE MY DS IT'S THE BEST CONSOLE EVER, PSP SUCKS :D
inb4 warning and/or ban for a day
the buttons and analogs are too small -_-'
i thought the story is BIG but when i saw it/......... nothing to see competing with 3ds 3ds is very very with more ideas i mean sony can't win against nintendo
OMG... nice. love the wide display screen.
This is for lazy ass gamer that needs exercises. lol
that he can take in public manga reader comic book reader movies, music, games real video camera long battery life trophies and more.
i'm a lil slow, is this real or wot????
Sony need to take this and make it smaller then it's first day for me.
I like BIG I would walk aound carrying a 30inch TV if I could
Like others said, the last letter in PSP stands for Portable. So far the ony PSP that does that properly is the PSP Go. Now if they make it a sliding action like the Go and bump up the screen size to 5" then I'm cool for that. Or make the whole slide front face a touch screen so you can maximize the screen size.
I know a fan made this video, but man - that looks pretty stupid.
I for one hope psp2 is can run flash and it too ignites an app store like the iphone.2. storage will be an issue so I don't know how Sony are going to do this.40gig mini HDD won't be hard to achieve.3. storage medium for games.Will Sony go with a mini blu ray,go download only,ship games on High Capacity 16gig+ memory sticks or a Next Gen UMD?.Bluetooth2.0,Wifi,ad hoc but the question is whether Sony will put in 3G or 4G.Touchscreen,six axis will make the cut I believe but 3D?Dual screen?also unknown,don't know.Sony has gone back on there words in the past like they did with backward Compatiabilty with Ps3.Dual anolog sticks is definately coming but whether Sony will imput preasure based bottons like Dual Shock is also unknown.One thing unknown is that Sony has being working on a liquid polymor since 2003 that will allow hard plastics and glass no matter the size or verscotity to be bended to any size and shape to fit in your pocket.whether it makes it will be seen.built in camera is also something that may or may not make it as well.I believe Sony will put no less than 1GB of Ram to the system as High end smart phones have 1GB memory as well.GPU?Well.When the Ps3 was Complete.Sony gave Nvidia another 60million or so for future products so I am sure the Terga2 will be the psp2 gpu.whether it has dx10 features is unknown as well as video memory and CPU?huge amount of rumours lead is a watered down Cell CPU with 4spu.I could be wrong but all this is likely of happening.One thing more I will add is if psp has Cell phone features as well.It will easily reach 50million units in no time.
this is what i think and hope will be in the PSP2 1- 2 analog sticks 2- psp go design 3- touchscreen 4- TROPHIES! haha 5- Have multiple users 6- games on a memory stick like device 7- Hdd with at least 16 gb 8- 3g built in but no phone. sorta like the ipad 9- PSN integration 10- better analog sticks and last but not least the price should at least be 250$ but if they can 200$
sony will most likely add sixaxis to it also. one more thing id like to see is improved online that dosnt have to do with psn like psp version of tag mode and app store
ms will counter with ZUNEHDK with 4 cameras NO buttons or sticks and with speech control.lol
nice video, is it real??
Those buttons look too small to be even usable. The design is ugly, this is why Sony does not listen to its fan base. They have crap ideas.
Holy crap this is fake!!! do u not read? sry its just ppl keep asking if this is real and its annoying!
lol its it great and everything lol but the title is very misleading, i was expecting the original trailer but ah well this is still pretty good
I'm quite happy this isn't real... if it was, it would be another disaster; a failed attempt to go after the iPad and completely give up on portable gaming.
