This is a concept of what the rumorerd PSP2 could be. With features such as: An HD multitouch screen Mini Bluray Dual Analog, well... on the screen And an internal hardrive This could be the PSP fellow gamers have always wanted.
Awesome concept. I like the transparent buttons on the screen. Would hate to drop that thing by accident.
Very bad concept, firstly it's incomplete the back has no design, no speakers, head phone slot, on/off button, wireless button etc. The mini blu-ray is a good idea as well as the ability to touch the screen for xmb options, the touchscreen dpad is a very bad idea as it is impractical and you'll probably end up breaking the screen when you have to button bash or "touchscreen bash". Also it needs physical analog sticks, and the R/L buttons look ridiculous. Also it needs to be a lot wider so it doesn't look awkward like it does now.
I think a touchscreen would be great for xmb functions, etc.. but for gaming... I think it is a waste of time. You need an actual analog stick on it... I don't see how it would work as well with just a touchscreen dpad. But overall, as mentioned... I think it is long overdue for a psp overhaul. It could be so much more and I don't care what they charge for it.
Looks horrible. Impractical. Uncomfortable. The list goes on...and that's just from looking at it. So far my favorite concept is: http://img212.imageshack.us...
If they go ahead and make it into a phone then they may have something.
PSP doenst need an HD screen. HD capability on a small screen like that is not necesary and won't see much of a difference between a 480p screen. Having noted this, I hope PSP get a 720p HD screen though.
i hope i can trade my phat and my slim for it . i know you have to make changes but come on i just pick up my slim couple months ago..
That's actually not a bad design mock-up. Would be very intresting to see what something like this could potentially cost. I like it and all but the transparent buttons and anolog thumb sticks hmmmm.... I'm not so sure how that would function with the entire interface being touch sensitive. You could accidentally bring up the xmb if the action got to tense. LOL!!!! All in all it's rather pretty... although probably pretty expensive if it was an actual HD screen an mini Blu-Ray, oh ad let's not forget the harddrive.
That looks sexy but after you would touch it then it would look bad because of the finger prints. So if this would ever become the PSP2 I hope that it would come in another color other then black.
Well I guess an option to lock the XMB could be possible, maybe on the side. thanks for all of the feedback
IDK, this one is neat and all but I find the other concepts posted on N4G a lot better.
I cant imagine a screen that size being HD, small screens dont need it...
that looks nice but wouldn't having the buttons on the screen make it harder to play?
Thats what I thought at first glance playing the Nintendo DS with the stylus. But if the game is good enough it's easily over shadowed being a problem.
in 15-20 years...
That damn thing is hideous. Why the hell are the buttons imbedded into the screen? This one is not a very good mock up. I liked the one from last week better.
mini bluray.. lol
are you... stupid or something?
I wonder why people disagreed with you since such a thing as Mini Blu-Ray discs already exists.
it woudl be stupid not to but real buttons and real analog stick on it.
Hello 500 dorra handheld, I wonder why people are clamouring for a PSP2 already when the original one still has a LOT of life left in it.
Are you guys seriously saying this could be great? pad on the screen? = WTF? how can you see what you're playing if your hands are all over it... it will certainly be a touchscreen but the buttons has to be separate! nice idea but not possible.. and mini bluray? lol
they could combine the 2 mock-ups. we might have a winner. Love the mini-blu though
Battery space / connection ports have not been allocated on this mock up. It does seem nice, but not 100% viable. (not enough buffering space around the screen.) Would like to still see the old WLAN hard-switch. I'll say this however, given the state of OLEDs and the size of Blu-Ray diodes, a touch version could possibly be in the future. Probably replace the red laser UMD drive for a BR-UMD. The last important component for making such a device is the processor. I just don't think there's one that would push a new generation of hand-helds just yet.
That looks terrible and impractical. Not even a good mock-up. I made better stuff in highschool CAD... why is this even posted?
Forget it at least for the next 2 to 3 years. The PSP has just been redesigned to the PSP Slim last fall. That costs a lot of money, Sony won't throw in much more for a totally new PSP so soon.
there is no need to release a new PSP soon there is still a lot of demand for the PSP especially with the connectivity with PS3 its been proven that PSP sales have been going up since the PS3 launched because of the Remote Play feature and now that the PS3 sales are going up then the PSP sales are probably going to pick up significantly as well the PSP2 is inevitable, but there is no need now
Actually PSP sales have gone up because of some other factors: * The introduction of the PSP Slim * Monster Hunter 2 (in Japan at least) * Upcoming games like God of War I have bought a Ceramic White PSP, because of the Slim edition and upcoming God of War + the homebrew fun. No intention to buy and connect to a PS3. Heck, almost all people I know with a PSP don't own a PS3, but a 360 or a Wii or both...
