Analysts: New PSP With UMD A Strong Possibility


Analysts Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities and Jesse Divnich of EEDAR wouldn't be at all surprised if Sony's next handheld supported the platform holder's proprietary UMD format.

While Sony opted to remove the previously ever-present UMD drive for the October release of its latest portable, PSPgo, developer talk on the Tokyo Game Show floor in late September was of the system's next iteration, PSP-4000, which it is claimed will support the format when it launches in 2010.

"I think it is possible and likely that the PSP-4000 will support UMD, and I think that Sony will support whichever formats make it the most money," Pachter told us.

Good lord, how many times has Pachter spoken this month?

Sarcasm3373d ago

The last few times he was talking in the Bonus Round on gametrailers. But seeing as how they filmed it only once, he only made those "claims" once.

As for this particular article, I don't know when it was.

Most people don't realize that the PSP Go is not going to replace the PSP thousand series.

They're meant to be sold side by side.

I fully expect Sony to release newer versions of both the PSP Go and the PSP thousand series as time goes by.

They need to keep churning out all the PSP games on the PSN. I still dont have Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection on the go.

As long as it's quieter, I'm all for it in the next PSP.

Super_secret called this out a while ago.

I've heard a lot about super_secret, but where do people read his predictions?

rockleex3373d ago (Edited 3373d ago )

He is the Alpha and Omega.
The first and the last.

Just kidding.

But he was on the N4G forums 5-6 months ago and made a "prediction" one week prior to its happening in order to prove himself.

Then after that happened, he let out the REAL deal. He told us everything about the PS3 slim, FW 3.0, cross game chat, PSP Go, and PSP-4000.

Everything has come true so far. Anybody got a link to his posts?

Elvfam5113373d ago (Edited 3373d ago )

In his sleep he thinks of the next topic for the interwebs

"I think that the next version will likely have both, with a disc drive that uses no power if the user is playing a downloaded game."

Isn't this in the psp-3000, 2000, and 1000

When was Pachter ever right? I sure can't remember it. If it's this easy to be an analyst where do I sign up?
