Sony won't be pushed into talking about the sequel to PSP before it's good and ready. Not even by a developer saying, on the record, that he has one "in the house".
I don't care what they say, the PSP2's real.
Yea Sony cant hide this for much longer just announce it
Their probably hiding it till they have a bad ass release line up. They need to make it a must purchase for everyone and they know it. It'll be up against stiff competition going up directly against the 3ds. Which already has a big lead just by being a nintendo hand held.
I have a theory about this to be honest and the news this week about the PS2 game enabling(for PS3) add on goes further down that route, tbh. I think they're waiting til they can release the new handheld alongside PS2 games on the Playstation Store for PSP2 and PS3. Surely, adding the much desired second analog would free up tons of games in , arguably, the best console library in existence and while I might not have time to play PS2 games at home among all the new releases on the go I'd love to catch up on some gems I missed first time round. There's also games which were spoken of for PSP(like the Rewsi game at E32009) that have seemingly vanished which smacks of a reveal not too far away and big launch titles. Maybe once games like the next GoW handheld and Parasite Eve:The Third Birthday have launched the decks will be clear to launch the next handheld with titles like those, the PS2 library and Sony's own stuff like LBP2 and another Motorstorm. We know 3DS is coming and looking very good and Sony, imho, don't want to go into battle with it and the iPhone family with damp powder. Sure, we will keep getting leaks til they call it for holidays 2011 at GDC or about then but I'm convinced there's something in t5he fact we haven't got PS2 games on the Store yet. Or am I just going barmy and thinking too much about all this?
LBP2/GT5 to pass (thus not taking their thunder) Next big PSP games to be released (I'm sure PSP2 will be B/C but until they release as PSP's last swan song, no PSP2) Timing it along with that PS2 add on waiting for next big conference (GDC?) waiting for new quarter earnings season to kick in eitherway, will wait for PSP2 before investing on any portable playstation.
if they expect to sell any of those new monster hunter PSPs then they wont announce it for a while, maby gdc
Every time SONY doesn't deny outright it's confirmed a few months later.
The timing is right for a new handheld release from Sony. It could ride on the wave of momentum that the PS3 has created for Sony and should compete will with the next Nintendo handheld.
Can't blame them for trying to avoid the 'osborne effect' especially with as long a lead team as this thing probably has left and with the PSP-3xxx units selling like crazy in Japan.
Im guessing you mean the resident evil psp game? i forgot about that, and you do make a good point.
Guys I know you don't want this to be the reason but it is and that is the PS Move. They have to give it a chance to succeed before they overshadow it with an announcement of an established product. They have to focus and as a company they are doing the right thing. I have a feeling there are some PSP2 games already complete. I bet you Capcom aren't releasing SSF4 on the PSP and 3DS because they're planning on releasing it on the PSP2 that they already have a dev kit for.
agreed but hey, they need to build the hype for the product.. when they release it they want to be able to say "yeah its real & its the best handheld gaming device there is, and be able to tell us a bunch of features and games" rather than "yeh its real, wait months for more details" im glad that theyre being so dissmissive, sort of gives you that "well hes said he has one, surely they can say 'its in development, maybe its not true" lol.. but hey although im 90% sure its real and being developed i'll still be like "omg, hell yeah!" when its announced xD damn i used alot of quotations :P
Didn't they say the same thing with there best worst secret of e3? just saying
PSP2 at E3 for 129.99 yes that price folks, they learned from PSPGO
I think that Sony will do a Press conference before E3, maybe this year...who knows i hoped for a TGS announcement...
CES 11 or bust !
I highly doubt it'll be 129.99 more likely it'll be price the same way as the Psp when it first released or a bit more.
I expect Sony's to be in the same ballpark.
whatever nintendo will end up charging for the 3ds expect the psp2 to be more expensive than that
the price wasn't the problem, it was the fact that it was 250 for a product you arguably already had. More than Likely PSP2 be in the $200 range.
i reckon they could fairly charge the same price as the go, it'll be more powerful, hopefully have 2 thumbsticks, maybe full psn support & integration
''Sony won't be pushed into talking about the sequel to PSP before it's good and ready'' That's good, don't rush things because it can have a lot of failures like other companies.
but we know it's real now its just a case of sony announcing it
please show it at next year's E3... I wanna see how it looks and plays
Now we all know that it's coming sooner then later. So who in their right mind would buy a PSP knowing this?
People who want to play a game for PSP in the time between now and the release of PSP2?
There are some great games out, and coming out, right now. It just seems like the guy should have held his toung. It's obvious Sony doesn't want word of a PSP2 going around.
well...i guess those would be people who wants to play PeaceWalker, KH:BirthBySleep, Ys7, VC2, VC3, Patapon3, 3rdBirthday, WKC:DogmaWars, FF13Agito, Dissadia2, YakuzaPSP, and the new MonsterHunter game. I know what you meant but just keep in mind that these awesome games are the number one reason why people are buying a PSP. Announcing the PSP2 might stop some of them, but most will still choose to play the games now instead of waiting for a future platform. And...how many of these latecomers do you think are going to be early adopters anyway?
I give it till the day/day after the 3DS annocument for some reason.
Wow they have nothing. The 3ds is stiff comp. Even has 3rd party support. I think Sony should let this be and try and make move work.
PSP2 better come out with guns blazing to even hope to compete with the 3DS.
This post has nothing to say about the psp2. Has anyone even read this?
No we have not it's not important this conversation in this post is. Lol
IT better come with 2 !!! Analog stick '_' or it's just gonna be a waste of time
I can see the psp 2 having a major powerfull vga chip. much like the high end smart phones .and iphones that can run 60fps and the likes of. RAGE,if this is so . im now drewling over my keyboard. we need this handheld beast. playstation 2 style games on psp was good. but time to put us into a world of today.
Its coming....It will be leaked in the next few weeks and SOny will then announce it. Hopfully so to give the 3DS some competition.
I guess they would wind down supplies of old stock first . Letting retail outlets get rid of stock , when they start knocking the price down and getting rid of old psp's then they will announce the new one .
I personally don't see Sony making a PSP2 announcement this year. It will be early next year, maybe CES, but more likely at GDC. I say this because I think Sony wants to get one more good holiday out of the current PSP. They still have some last great games, like God of War, and a couple new bundles. If they announced the PSP2 now, current PSP sales would drop as people wait for next year. But after the holidays have passed, the flood gates will open, and there will be a mega push for the PSP2 all year 2011, and will release that holiday.
Is a GTA game, Uncharted, LBP2, Mortal Kombat, MGS (maybe... if kojima isnt too tied up), PS2 BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY! (IM TELLING YOU SONY. It'll kill the 3DS with that! The PS2 is the best selling console of all time), some more first party games, and some good 3rd party games. A good lineup makes the console.
