High profile rumours that Sony was to release a PlayStation phone in 2010 were wide of the mark, it seems.
Didn't think it would being a no show at GamesCom and PAX.
If it is a phone I hope they still focus more on the games then apps. I mean they can have apps but I still want full on games that look almost as good as the ps3.
As good as the ps3 on an phone is hard to impossible in these times but maybe something between ps2 and ps3 graphics
IF this is true and I hope so, this is CES-2011 material, Portable Gaming Device with Mobile phone features = Awesome
The next psp is not going to be a phone. However, Sony Ericsson will release a phone with powerful graphics and Android gingerbread with a dedicated games market for it.
I think...the Psp phone will be more like the psp mini..
Like Sony is seriously going to make a PSPhone amidst their "Step yo GAEM up" PSP campaign. Just give us a PSP2. Make sure it has two sticks and try to make it cheaper than the 3DS.
I just want them to unveil it before a release date is confirmed...
Is every statement form this article gong to get reported as news? Just read the Seattle Times interview: http://seattletimes.nwsourc...
I bet the games will be digital only if they did this
and make the same mistake they made with the psp go? I dont think so. Sony said they won't be doing digital distribution again any time soon. I personally hope digital distribution mever takes off. Then it feels less like the hobby of game collecting.
this is what i get for putting a little faith in a engadget "trusted source" i wont be doing that again at least announce its existence at TGS, no release date or specs needed i just want official word that it really exists
Announce is the key difference here folks ;)
Maybe October announcement, 2011 release.
Sony have more up their sleeves than you think ;)
how would you know that ? u know something we dont ?
My 1st post on n4g :) and sorry if this sounds a bit dumb but what does he mean by "Our strategy is to maintain the PlayStation brand on Sony devices" Does this mean the playstation brand could end up on products that aren't Sony's?
a while ago i read something about sony was going to do things like add the xmb to other devices like the bravia televisions.
A PSP phone would be a disaster for Sony. The PSP2 needs to be a dedicated, ultra powerful gaming handheld that targets both casual and hardcore gamers.
having it be a phone means you could get it two ways, subsidized through a carrier which means cheaper initial cost or purchase it unlocked, like every other PSP the first option appeals to alot of people including me, having the appearance of being cheaper is nice, this also address one of the PSPGO's problems, to expensive for what it was if sony are smart and use android for the OS they already have interest from android fanboys before release, android is the fastest growing mobile OS but it lacks quality games so a PSPhone could do VERY well here think about the pros and cons, you know im right
why? to sell to who!? little kids wont want it, adults dont want more than one mobile device. honestly a phone which can game properly like a ds or a psp will be a serious device and appealing to everyone including iphone owners.
They could do it like the iPhone and the iPod Touch. They both can play the same games, but one is a phone and one is not.
Real buttons, real control pad, real games, real phone means this is the real deal and i cant wait!
looks like it was the right choice to order an iphone 4 for delivery next week rather than wait for this to arrive !!!
Dont you get it it was cvg projecting the rumor that it will be a phone. We have no idea if thats even true.
a handheld will not have the same graphic as the ps3 it will never happen the 3DS won't do it and the new psp wont do it if there is one but so far to me this new psp thing is a joke but you should never compare handhelds graphiic to a ps3 that makes you looks like a 100% idiot..
sony i want the next psp to have FULL PSN functionalities ( that feature alone would be a selling point i think ) ability to talk , send messages to our PSN friends if they could use 3G or 4G network even better , i want to be connected to PSN at all times if its possible 2 analog sticks improved graphics better web browser , in game xmb , in movie xmb pause / resume feature - up to 2 games at the same time kick ass games ( Uncharted , inFAMOUS , Little Big Planet 2 , White Knight Chronicles , Motorstorm wouldnt be a bad launch line up at all ) make the PSP2 first and foremost a gaming machine
people actually thought that psp2 wud be revealed this year? well lets never rule out anything even if this particular one is unlikely as it gets. psp2 wont come until late 2011 or early 2012. feel sorry for those who still has hopes for an appearance @ TGS. then again duke nukem forever is finally gonna be finished so i may be wrong on this one.
Crossing my fingers for TGS 2010. Cause if it comes out 2010 I'LL BE GETTING THIS INSTEAD OF THE X10!
