Sony: No PSP2 in the works

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves has denied reports that the company's developing a next generation PSP.

While Sony recently told us that it doesn't "comment on rumour and speculation" following reports that a PSP successor was in the works, the company's Euro boss has come out and completely denied anything of the sort.

"... There are currently no plans for a PSP2," Reeves told MCV. "I go to Tokyo quite a lot and no one has referred to it - I think they have their hands full at the moment.

"We just launched the PSP-3000 so we are still focused on this generation of the platform," Reeves added.

The exec also acknowledged that the PSP's "weakness" is its software, as developers have opted to take their titles to other platforms first. More PSP "games will come," he promised, "they just take a while longer".

And why would they be working on a new PSP, they have barely supported the first one.

Has a new PSP game in dev called Undead Knights. It seems that you have sold your soul to the devil for magical powers, so now when you touch foes you drain there life force and turn them into zombies who then fight at your side. The game looks good.

Looking forward to this one also, got it paid in full already and GameStop has it listed for a 02/10/2009 ship date. Cant wait.

Its awesome that sony aren't thinking of making it just yet. Some of us are just getting used to the psp lite! Besides i think to make the psp2 would require some new form of great technological entertainment media so they can add that. In the mean time enjoy your sales from what you have now. I'm totally for the psp 2 idea though. Just, not too soon.

Can someone explain to me what is the deal with the PSP 3000?

I was thinking of getting a new PSP (I have the original PSP with broken audio), but it seems that Sony stopped selling their new version of the PSP and are still selling the PSP 2000. I remember reading somewhere that there were problems with the PSP 3000's screen and Sony issued a recall. Is that why the standalone PSP 3000 is not available for sale by Sony?

Does anyone have any information on when it would become available? I don't want to buy a brand new PSP only to have a new version released 6 months later.
