VG247: VG247 has learnt that Sony it to hold a “business overview and strategy meeting” in Tokyo on January 27, and has been told that Sony will use the event as a reveal platform for PSP2.
Finally some game related news.
You took your sweet time announcing it Sony. I've been waiting for the PSP2 reveal for the past 2 years.... Day 1 import from Japan for me , especially if Sony Bend are working on an Uncharted launch title. I can't wait to play proper FPS's with HD graphics using dual analogues on it, imagine pawning some n00bs online in COD or Killzone while sitting on the toilet. Valve shoud release Portal 2 on it, it would be a perfect handheld title.
very good news, I'm glad that phone wasn't the PSP2
"Killzone... now make u cum while on the toilet." Hoping for dual analogs! No dual, no deal. Its the way I roll.
Damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn, I;m sooo hToTrny......I mean, excited, bring it sonyyyyy, final fantasy x on the go PLIS.
This is clearly Sony blasting Nintendo. Go for it Sony. Destroy 3DS hype and show Nintendo how to do a real hardcore handheld.
Why can't we... yeno... enjoy both of them? They're both gonna be completely different machines.
I like your thoughts.
This is N4G we take sides and argue over pointless crap!
3D have mgs , i want that in the psp 2 !!! ...
Nah, I want graphic > 3D any day, thanks. Maybe in the future sony may take psp 3D enhancement aboard, but by now, some good battery life + Ps2/3 graphics, done and bye bye 3DS xD.
i mean the game, i know that 3D doesn't have good graphics , that's why i want mgs in the psp 2 .... i don't want to buy 3D just for one game , i can't , ps3 have alots of Exclusives this year so i can't buy another console and don't forget about the multiplats .... but i really really want mgs !! >.<
Hmm, we'll see if Sony has any surprises up their sleeves. Maybe a glassless 3D display? Despite what the Sony execs say, they really need a wow factor in the device.
The only wow factor I;m expecting here, is a fully well integrated psnetwork on the go plus home, not taking out the whole ps2 library, just by thinking of suikoden, dragon quest 8, or final fantasy xii on the go, BOOM, or resident evil 4...fapping, like ocarina of time on 3DS, nuff for anyone to want both handheld.
I've long said that the big factor for a new Sony hand held would be huge access to the PS2 library and, controls permitting, that's what we'll get. We've seen people go for HD remakes of PS2 games so having them in HD quality AND in portable form -what better way to catch up on missed classics without eating into the time you have for new PS3 games etc? Sure, they need a good design and some amazing launch titles(as, whatever you might think 3DS really DOES have some amazing games non the go)plus decent battery life but that PS2 library really should be key and if they price both the games and console correctly they could well be big players both in and out of the East.
They better do. Because as the 3DS launch rolls in slowly, PSP2 will become irrelevant if its announced any later than the Japanese 3DS launch. I mean I know theres a lot of people looking forward to it, myself included, but Nintendo is set to bury Sony if 3DS is as successful as I think its gonna be. Not announcing the system isn't gonna help steal a bit of hype off of the 3DS.
Yea but Nintendo always had the handheld market in the palm of their hands ever since the original gameboy was on the market. So it really doesn't matter when the PSP2 is announce, there's huge market for Nintendo's handheld system, just like there's huge market for Sony's. So I don't either one company is going to bury the other.
Sony has sold close to 70 million PSP units, even though it was their first attempt at a handheld, and it was in direct competition with Nintendo's DS. Thats more units sold than the entire population of France! There is a massive market for Sony's handheld, and anyone who claims the PSP2 can't compete, is an idiot.
Ah! Do want!
i hope that sony unveils the psp2 on that day with hardware specs and games
top 10 "other" announcements made alongside psp2 unveiling 10. The psp2 will be able to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on its own, when placed next to "bread and P&J" 9. Geohot has already hacked it. 8. In light of the shock that Marcus was "black" OMG...sony is now using a robot as the spokesperson...err thing. 7. when placed far enough away, the psp2's camera can support full body motion controls...they call it "Kontact" 6. It is 5g ready...whenever 5g is created... 5. Gran turismo 6 is already in development for it...should be out Dec 2050 4. It's almost as powerful as the ps3....the compromise is the battery life is 4 minutes. 3. It's charger is sold separately..for 99 bucks 2. It's playstation move compatible....but you need 3 arms to play any of the games 1. It's sony...so its already overpriced thank you thank you 2.
i see u gave ur best to try and be funny and i will give u a B for effort. it is prolly going to be overpriced but yea thats that
you probably not familiar with my N4G famous top 10 lists huh? I'm well known for my hit and miss humor, and I'll take that "B" thank you
I doubt Sony will reveal too much if this is at all true. I expect a proper reveal at E3 when we may see the device for the first time, have proper details on the handheld, and perhaps even have the device available to demo.
Guys, come on now. We've been through all this before. "Unnamed sources close to the people who say they saw a video one time..." How many times have we heard this? Flamebait. Remember the huge announcement in France on January 9?
I agree, how many times was the psp2 supposedly going to be announced? at least 3 or 4 times just in 2010?
well lets wait and see if thats true but i find it very weird to see an announcement like this happening at a date like that, why they didnt announce it at CES ? i mean it could not be a gaming show but its an electronic show and playstation had a huge presence on it
holy crap Game Informer has just been invited by sony to a sony event on january 27th in tokyo , damn something is cooking for sure
