Sony released the first PlayStation Portable in 2004/2005, with the PS Vita releasing seven years later in 2011/2012. It would only make sense that if Sony were to enter the handheld market again, 2022 or 2023 would be the year. Perhaps they’ve just been waiting for 5G network infrastructure to catch up, as launching a new handheld that downloads or streams games and other media over 5G seems to be the future if the mobile market is any indicator.
So what would be the system specs, price, and software features of a new Sony PSP include? That’s what we’re here to speculate. Since information about the potential PSP 5G is still pretty scarce, this article will be pure conjecture. The information here is based on what’s currently available in the market and what leaps we’ve seen from the original PSP to the PS Vita and advances in other handheld devices like smartphones and Nintendo’s Switch.
