We’ve been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There’s a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block.
i hope the final product has two analogs
definately, and is not a phone
And yes, definitely not a phone.
its going to feel weird going from right analog to button keys
Poor Sony can't keep a secret to save their life, always leaks. O well it looks cool and has two analog sticks
I love PSP go design, I don't have it only bacause it's download only.
I love how with today's technology we still manage to take the grainiest photos known to man. My 3-year-old phone has like 3.1 mega-pixels, c'mon.
I don't like the placements of the sticks, wouldn't it be a bit hard or uncomfortable to hold it when the sticks are too close to the edges of the device?
...and there you have it...the truth ladies and gentleman, the pics are so grainy because a 1 year old took them. Or at least a person under the age of 3.
NOT FOR SALE I guffawed.
What are you guys talking about. Those are proper spy shots. Grainy, out of focus and shot at awkward angles. LOL :D
"The machine is rumoured to be extremely powerful, with approximately twice as much RAM as a 360." Interesting choice of comparatives there. They could have said PS3 but it wouldnt have had as much impact I guess.
Lmao I was thinking the same exact thing!!!! But even though .... this thing has got my undivided attention. I would much much rather have this then the 3DS. It looks flawless .... couldn't ask for anythig more and judging by that comment about the memory ... I expect a effin powerhouse of technical goodies underneath the hood.
"its going to feel weird going from right analog to button keys" Like we've been doing for 2 or 3 generations now, you mean? Try again, troll.
He said his 3 year old phone?
"We’ve been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There’s a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block." -Good. No one would have bought that ugly abomination.
OMFG PSPDOSAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHH
AHHHHHH 2!!!! ANAOLGS!!! did i mention its has 2 analog stix???
God dammit Sony. I feel bad for them though... All of their secrets get leaked early. Cant wait for this thing though! Goodbye 3DS
You best be trollin' Seriously though, even if this device has all the features, expect it to play second fiddle to the 3DS till the end. It will bee seen as premium priced, more serious gaming/multimedia hardware and will not sell nearly what Nintendo will.
That fixes one issue. I'm wondering what kind of media they will use, I know umd is out, and I'm not sure if there just going to do DDL. Touch Screen? My hopes for the PSP2 are high, and can't wait to see what it can really do. The PSP has sold 60 million +, A really soild, sleek, and multi-functioning PSP2 could easily pass that in this day and age.
This looks pretty good. I’m hoping for two more things for the PSP2, now that it’s got two analog sticks. ((#1)) I hope Sony will start releasing PS2 Classics (like the PS1 Classics already on the Store) and they will be playable on both the PS3 and the PSP2. Alongside this wish, I hope the PSP2 will have all four shoulder buttons so all PS2 games will work. ((#2)) I hope Sony will get rid of the UMD format and put the PSP2 games on ROM SD Flash cards. They’re small, easy to carry around, and are available in capacities up to like 64GB, even more than a bluray disc. ——————- I really hope the first thing I wrote will come to fruition because having the PSP2 being able to play the entire catalog of PS2 games would be a HUGE selling point. GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas are all games I’d like to see put on the PS Store as PS2 Classics and I hope they’ll be playable on both the PS3 and PSP2.
Looks like cheap plastic, and it's nothing i imagined it would be. Or maybe it's just a prototype.
it's just a prototype-ish model sent to devs containing the beast within. The form factor aswell as the actual design of the console will change drastically before hitting markets. Sony has sent this to devs so that even if it's leaked, like in this case, the final "look" will still be retained. Alternatively, it might be that they haven't really finalized the design yet and hence sent it to devs in the current form. The earlier if they are smart and the later if they are lame.
frickin'-righty then :) Positive bubble vote headed your way :)
Didn't Sony say they were giving out false information to the media to see who leaks it?
i am administering a most fabulous bubble for this line of text that has come from your brain to my screen.
Can't wait to throw my old psp away for this
don't throw it away. i may want to buy it from you. -grin-
The final design will likely be given a big overhaul. Sony would never use a d-pad design like that. They always separate their direction buttons
that's exactly why it's a prototype
Looks horrendously poorly fabricated, even for a dev kit/prototype. Interesting though, shame the images look like they were taken from a 1990s camera phone.
It's a prototype, meaning it's going to look like shit. Sony probably just threw new hardware in a PspGo and cut a hole in it for a second analog. The shit pictures make me kind of suspicious though. Oh well, as long as it's released I'm happy.
My point exactly, why fabricate some random D-pad and buttons like those when you have the ones you already produce in the PSP Go. It would have been cheaper.
perhaps i didn't all fit, hence what we see before us?
I'd say the pics were taken using one of those shitty 'spy' cameras, that come in pens and cuff links ect. (probably to remain inconspicuous) No other modern digital camera produces that bad quality picture quality.
Are you serious? Did you see the Ps3 dev kits, they were monsters. Sony isn't going to spend their money making beautiful looking dev. kits that are only going to be used for testing, debugging, and programming, just to throw them out and ship the next build of dev. kits to developers. That's a waste, if Sony did that, we'd be paying mad extra money for the console when it ships to consumers. It's all about what's on the inside, and when Sony finalizes it, they will wrap it all up in a nice, shiny, ergonomically correct shell.
possibly the worst camera of all time.
it looks like it was taken with a camera phone in the dark pictures turn really gainy in the dark
the worst fake yet.
Internet Law, every leak must be taken with a crappy camera
Yeah, 5 year old phones take less blurry photos. :/
Wrong. It's taken with a high end digital camera but then it's altered in photoshop lol
Update: We’ve been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There’s a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block. Remember those last Kotaku rumours of the unit over heating? Sony switched back to the current PSP form in order to cool it down.
I think not, dev kits don't usually look anything like the console/device itself. They are more like a computer with certain specifications. I call fake.
im thinking this is fake...why so grainy? why like pspgo? maybe a pspgo modified by someone?
Wtf? Do you guys expect someone with a freakim Nikon taking pictures CSI style? I'm sure that these were really hard to get and not taken from an actual camera. Common sense is dead
To all those sperting fake because it looks too much like a console, surely that's pretty logical, instead of giving them some computer with a VGA port and telling them to use and design for certain specs, it'd be wise to give them a similar to final design and make a game designed for those layouts. That would explain the early PSP games who used the analogue stick poorly.
thoughts not a phone. I am wondering what the physical medium will be
In fairness most phones aren't phone nowadays. Meerly apps, texts, internet. Infact the number I look at least when buying a phone is it's battery life when calling.
What I mean is this is a seperate device from the psphone code named zeus. This is the psp 2 and is 100 percent confirmed not a phone
if all your looking for in a phone is battery life you might as well go for a old "dumb phone" instead of a smartphone they hold there battery life far longer
Late 2011 though... :(
i was starting to question whether the PSP Phone was actually the PSP2 now...im almost 100% certain that they are 2 different devices
I'm really wondering what the trackpad on the back will be used for.
PSP grafix are already insane for an handheld and now psp 2 "faints" i want TEKKEN TAG 2
there is not a camera that can take this kind of horrible quality pics.. seriously
Fuckin dumb ass people in here hoping it isn't a phone. Just die.
I smell bullshit
Well its probably a shi*** pic because someone risked their job to take it. This would be very hush hush with confidentiality agreenents signed. I cant wait to see what a beast this will be. I hope its not 300 though as i could get a ps3 for that.
I Dont Want It To Be A Phone, Sony Wouldnt Ruin A Good Thing
wtf is a track pad? lol
I think they meant "touch pad" like the ones on the laptops... :P
lol oh ok... But wait... WHy would there be a touch pad on the back??? Blasphemy!
The touch pad ones on laptops are called "track pads".
I love the PSP and can't wait for the PSP2. Hopefully the PSP2 will have a large, bright screen.
To the person who disagreed: maybe you like small, dark screens?
decent imo, can't wait to see what features and game lineup will be. Wallet: This looks expensive... it's going to hurt me pretty bad is in it? =( Handhelds_FTW: Hush child, it will for only a moment.
