Sony's Sid Shuman has said the even though the company cannot comment on speculation, gamers will find out whether the PSP2 exists at this years E3 conference.
that pretty much confirms it will be there
Kind of sucks for PSP Go owners though...
lol, good thing i never got it. I'm hoping Sony won't overcharge PSP2 like they did when PSP first came out. But that's highly unlikely. =(
PSP2 CONFIRMED! /s It does lead me to believe that they will show the PSP2 at E3, then again it could be sony trying to get people to focus on it being at E3 only for it not to be there and then people might forget about it and then at Toyko game show BAM! PSP2! Also PSPgo owners can whine all they want but they got what they payed for, nothing less, nothing more.
lol! so much for them not even mentioning it until TGS! Hope it is actually PSP2 though and not PSP 5000 lol.
They said that if it excists it will be at E3 2010. Considering it has been 5 years since PSPs release and PSP has sold 50+ million units selling pretty much as fast as PS2 I would almost certainly believe that they would be making one and releasing it before 2012. Therefore if they are releasing it before 2012 they would have already started making it and PSP 2 would exist and WILL BE AT E3.
That actually does make it sound pretty likely.....Wow. This could be good or bad. I've been wanting them to release a PSP2 for a long time. If they have half a brain, they shouldn't screw it up this time. But they need to fix: -One control stick problem -low control stick sensitivity -Piracy issues -3rd....and 1st....party support If they manage that, plus add more power, I'm in. .....then again, I think we're getting ahead of ourselves. It may not exist...yet.
I'm a PSP Go owner and I'm not the one least bit worried about it. I will get the PSP 2 when it comes out. It will probably have some large hard drive so all my digital games will just be redownloaded onto the new system. As it stands right now, I get FAR more use out of the Go then I did with the 1000 and 2000 I use to own. Kinda nice to have a mp3 player that doesn't require bookbag size storing space or not having to carry around a UMD carrying case which was bigger than the PSP itself.
I actually hope they aren't going to bring out a PSP2 this year. Last week on Bonus Round, the panelist made so much sense with what Sony needs to do with the PSP and bringing out more hardware is not the answer: http://www.gametrailers.com... seriously, watch that up - makes a lot of sense and I agree.
BUT, Sony didn't say NO either, So it's a definate MAYBE. I just LUV when they show that famous PSP2 concept design from that BLUEZPS person. THAT is all around the most FAMOUS design and BEST Looking. even though they might have to change the dpad and buttons to be more simular to the pspgo, and how they redo the back buttons too, I read some compaints about how TOO THIN they are to differnt size hands.
"You'll Find Out At E3" = PSP2 CONFIRMED!!!
This just says that if it exists, it will be shown at E3. If it is not shown at E3, it probably doesn't exist. Nothing we didn't already know, really. I, too, am kinda hoping for it, though. A PSP2 with dual analogues, four shoulder buttons, FULL remote play compatibility (including playing all PS3 games), a touch screen, and perhaps a cell phone would be absolutely epic.
'nough said. I'm hoping for a PlayStation Mobile - PSM (Preferably w/ touch screen)
i hope so. i was eyeballing the kingdom hearts bundle but i'd just wait for a psp 2 then.
Yeah I was looking at buying a bundle the other day, but I've decided to see if a PSP2 gets announced first, and it'll probably be a day 1 purchase IF it offers so much more than the Go :)
E3 2010 should be a great show then with PSP 2.
I sure hope it's true, and they announce some good games for it too. And I hope it's got 2 sticks or touch screen or somthing.
For one upmanship's sake it should be 3D enabled.
I'm sick of hearing about 3-D. It was a fad that died out in the 50's / 60's, so I don't see the big appeal here. History repeats itself, unfortunately...
The 3D that is coming into our homes now is vastly superior to that of yesteryear, it can't even be compared. With that said i don't think 3D will have much of an effect on gaming, Nvidia have offered 3D for years now and no one really talked about it. I'd much rather sony just keep it to 1 screen and no 3D.
But of course, there is no telling how long they've been working on it.
It will be shown off at TGS, not E3. But I thought the same about PSPgo and that was at E3....
I'm skeptical as to whether a second PSP will be rleased, ONLY because of the recent announcement of God of War: Ghost of Sparta, if they had an upcoming announcement of a PSP 2, don't you think this game would be on that console?
Well as true as that it, there's nothing stopping them announcing the release of Ghost of Sparta on the PSP2 in the future...
That could be sonys strategy, announce a few big names PSP games to throw people off the PSP2 trail and then when E3, Gamescon or TGS comes around they announce the PSP2 and tell people that a bunch of games that were previously announced for PSP1 were being made for PSP2 all along. Anyway i think that's all the PSP2 speculation i can muster for today.
They'll keep supporting the regular PSP even after PSP 2 comes out.
I will definitely buy one. I wonder if M$ ever thought of entering the hand held market?
They did mention about a handheld xbox is only a matter of 'when'.
i would definately get an xbox portabe. they could call it "Minibox 180"
was sort of an entrance wasn't it?
... so I'll only buy one if it can be modded. I buy all my games for my home-consoles, but as I only play my PSP or DS maybe on 1-2 day(s) in the month orso (when I'm on the train), it's not something that I would invest a lot of money in.
of course sony will annouce a new handheld,but when it launches will prob be next year. you think theyd let nintend annouce a new ds and not sony,PALEEEEZE LOL i just want pc tablets with tegra 2 to be lauching,damn lol
My want-iness wants a large touchscreen on my next handheld gaming device(Like Tegra 2 as you mentioned). 3D I have to see to believe if it will be more anoying than fun, if so I'll skip it. I'm an DS Lite owner now but considering I will buy a PS3 soon(or later) I'll also consider the new PSP2, and of course the DS2.
There is a reason that Nintendo announced the 3DS when they did, im sure they got wind of what the competetion are doing and wanted to get in there first. I hope the PSP2 succeeds better than the PSP, they need it to be as secure as the PS3, piracy nearly killed the PSP.] Also i hope to god it has buttons, i can't stand the controls on most Iphone games. Tilt and touch ruin most games for me
If I were to guess, I'd say it will have touch screen, microphone, and perhaps an accelerometer (for games like Loco Roco.) But those features will be more for multimedia uses, they will keep the buttons for us gamers, it's what sets them apart as a true gaming device. Another feature I'd like to see as is rumble which I'm sure they'll have if they go down the smartphone route. I doubt they'll have 3d, there's no demand for 3d in a handheld. That's just a case of Nintendo trying to set themselves apart like they always do.
I'm going to wait 4 years for the 3rd PSP2 model. They release a new one every year or so. 1000,2000,3000, Go...
A PSP2 would be announced at either E3 or TGS. If it doesn't appear at E3 then the speculation will continue until TGS. If it doesn't appear at TGS then we'll go through all this again next year just like we did last year.
Every major event, some people expected it to be announced. It never was, so at the next major event, people expected it to be announced.
That picture on the source site is a DREAM...
They're going to show PSP2's specs at E3 but not the actual product. You'll get to see the actual product or prototype at TGS10.
well, a psp2 announcement would be good for everybody. nintendo would get a serious competitor if the right features get added, and then i can finally get a pspGo cause it will no doubt drop at least $50, and knowing Sony the psp2 will cost $400 at launch, so i won't get one for a long time.
I want only ff13-2 (set on only pulse this time) or ff versus 13 announcment, don't care about anything else! maybe ff7 remake on psp2?
Everyone seems to forget how old the PSP is. Its been outdated for the past 4 years. This is inevitable. If not they need to understand that they are finished. Until they add 4g, two analog sticks, 720p, and psn connectivity. Also it needs to be a phone.
Dont believe a PSP2 will happen this E3. Maybe next year GDC or E3.
This+Team ICO:Collectiong+Starhawk+3D... and that's why E3 will be great. Imagine if they announce -Motorstorm 3 -Resistance 3 -Killzone 2 co-op -Jaffe's project Imagine how the people will react.. on this site I expect people to moan about Microsoft getting stardust HD on XBLA.. or some times exclusive DLC for BLACK ops but man... I'm broke because Microsoft and Sony will both have a good showing of games.
Google CEO comes out on stage and says: "Hello today I am here to talk about the psp2" 2 analog sticks, touch screen, backwards compatible,3G phone running android 2.5 spring next year :>
lol that would be awesome if the Google CEO came out to show off the next psp.
According to my source the PSP2 is slated for a Fall 2010 release in Japan and a mid or early launch in Europe & North America. I also heard that a redesign XMB was coming but it might not be true.
I would love 2 analog sticks and for EA to release NHL 11 for it. :/
I've been waiting for years for the dual-analog-stick PSP 2!!! Till then, I'm not buying any PSP junk.
Lol Wow people are trying to pry it out of Sony we all know Sony don't like to keep secrets, which is good and bad. Shhh Sony Shh.
