The PSP2 exists and EA has had access to it - according to the publisher's senior vice president Patrick Soderlund.
He was probably referring to the PSPhone and CVG took it out of context like they always do.
I dont know. the interviewer did say PSP2
Sure it does, and it's not a phone
What is one of the four emperors of the new world doing here?? On topic: I just want the handheld market to disappear so that JRPGs come out on consoles.
Are you talking about the vice president of EA or someone's name in the comments.
The thing is...that both the psphone and psp2 exists and are two distinctive products aim at different markets. Though the crowds are similar, to get as much market share from different markets is what sony has and is being trying to do. You better believe soon google tv (engineered by sony) and ps3 will support each others software. Like I said sony is and has been using playstation as a trojan horse(it did it for dvd, it did it for bluray and now its going for the phone market and tablet market) in the same way apple used the ipod turned it into a phone to get into the phone market and then that to get revive the tablet market.
true say its all about the brand name
Is there any proof that the psp phone isn't the psp2? I know it seems like a silly question but psp games have 1 analogue stick and this has 2. Probably just a meaningless observation though
2 different devices.
At this very point in time, and this is according those whom seen these machines first hand say the difference lie in the specs. Psp2 is set to be a powerhouse mainly aimed at games and other forms of entertainment. Where as the psphone is being built primarily as a phone and second as a gaming device. So its specs are set for a phone, unlike the psp2 which due to its power is having overheating issues and battery life. And ofcourse I am basing all of this on bits of info thats been scattered around the net as of late. I mean no one knows for sure what the final psphone and psp 2 is going to be like. But judging from from what we do know thus far is that both machines are real and are targeted at different markets, believe it.
you already see many picture about psphone. ( http://www.engadget.com/201... which similar to psp go. it assuming can play old game with psn and android game. while psp2 will support DUAL analog and HD screen. ( http://kotaku.com/5672410/p... obviously we don't know which one is true when we asked the developer. both of them have similar 1gb ram. however there high possibility thought that developer acquired own both of them. it seem that sony follow apple line wher you have 2 similar device. ipod touch and iphone
engadget link is down :/
i just hope it comes out soon
I want is photos! Thats all, is that too much for a brother to ask!
Wouldnt the specs be a little more interesting? personally, as long as it is comfortalble, which none of the current handhelds are, i wouldnd care what it looked like.
Well, you can't get any more confirmation than that. I mean EA is one of the biggest publishers.
cool, still im looking forward to 3ds mor psp2 will proably be more of what we already have 3ds had 3d oooh
...what is everyone going to use as an excuse if the PSP2 is announced to have 3D also?? lol I think people just like downplaying the PSP since it can play REAL games like Syphon Filter, God of War, Gran Turismo, LBP, etc. and not kiddy games like most of the DS lineup. Just saying.
id rather play Crash Team Racing than gran turismo any day edit: im an idiot for liking one of the best ps1 games of all time?
The original Crash Team Racing was one of the best games I've ever played. No doubt. To deny that game is to deny Naughty Dog themselves, aka the makers of uncharted. Different note though, I am excited for GT5 since Crash has since been dead to me for quite some time =[
Well, I like them both, but my point was that people like to hate on the PSP even though it has the best games on it. I mean Mario is far beyond the term "beating a dead horse." Nintendo NEEDS new IPs.
Crash has been dead since the day Naughty Dog lost the right to develop the games. Same with Spyro and Insomniac.
I got a ds lite back in 2006. Very dissapointed with the shovelware crap thats been smothering the system. GBA had a cleaner catalog. I will agree there are tons of "kiddy" games on the DS. What I will say is that I will take "experimental" games that have the potential to be good, over ports, which was the majority of the psp catalog for the first couple years of its life. And please. don't give me some lame ass list of the awesome psp games that are releasing this year. I'm aware of them. But that's just it. "THIS YEAR." Not 2005. or 2006 or 07. But 2010. I like the psp. My lil bro has one(13). I have a ps2, and i'm aware the psp is just as the name says, a portable playstation. But its kinda sad that the awesome games(non ports) are "finally" coming out. I love fight hack n' slash games, action rpgs. I have a DS. go figure. But I've played some awesome gems since 2006 to now. I'm just sayin that it took the PSP a lil longer to release some awesome games that weren't (ports,yearly sports games, 3rd party movie games, or re-makes) So lastly I say bring on the PSP2!!! lay right next to my Aquos Blue 3DS :P
Sony have been pushing 3d way more than nintendo so i cant see why the psp wouldnt be 3d compatiable at the werry least. Thats probably the reason psp2 havent been anounced yet, the technology is still new and still require a lot of work. Especially if its also going to support touch and hd.
@ firefoxprime - What's so bad about ports? Taking your favorite NEW games on the go anywhere is not a bad thing. A lot of the good DS games are ports as well just from OLDER systems(like Snes/N64) not from current systems.
Let me put it to you this way: this is a lil snipit from [A.D] a user on CVG: "PSP had some decent games but Nintendo's handheld caters for gaming on the move and offers a different experience to the main consoles whereas PSP games were just stripped down versions of their big brothers. The main reason as i said DS has succeded is because it offered a different experience because as far as i know hardly anyone actually plays a handheld outdoors, i always play them at home. Which brings the question why would you play a PSP when you can play your PS3 or 360? whereas with the DS you can't say that cos it's unique. And now the PSP is supposed to match 360 in power it makes it even more pointless when you can buy a 360 or PS3 which is probably cheaper anyway." Me: ports are okay. but as A.D explained they're mini versions of their bigger siblings. Which is exactly why so many PSP fans demand a second analog stick/nub/slidepad/whatever... They want that same feel of a console game(rotating camera and all) but the reality is that they're playing a "handheld".
Mathew then you should have a Ps3 since I am pretty sure I saw CTR on PSN.
the new psp2 is 3d and support 3d touch image, that will be epic. you don't need to touch the screen but the 3d image. not long ago sony got a patent for it.
And that is news??? Earth is nearly round,btw
XD I want it.
There is someone who always breaks the banter with a random "looks awesome!!!" or "i want it!!!" You make this a better site. Thank you
I'll take 2 of them.
Anyone want to buy my psp 3000?
I hope that the PSP comes at xmas next year. That would be super.
Its been out since 2005. /s
psp2 and psp phone be the same thing. play all my games on my phone.
God I want to see this thing. Love my PSP on long flights. NOM NOM NOM.
I'm willing to bet it won't be called the "PSP2", calling it now.
I hope it's called nothing else but PSP2 because that's exactly what it is, a PlayStaion Portable 2! I think Sony should follow that same formula and stay consistent and NOT end up calling it Vetta, Zeus or whatever the heck it's currently rumoured to be called. I mean can you imagine that? If Sony was announcing all of them in a row it would go like this: "We are proud to present to you the PS family" PlayStation 1, PlayStaion 2, PlayStation X, PlayStation Portable, PlayStaion 3 and then out of nowhere Zeus? crowd is like WTF!? Just stick with PSP2, simple and easy (^_^)
To hear it will combat the power of the Xbox360 isn't too unbelievable. Since they do sell the Xbox360 for under 300 dollars. To be packed into a smaller package and have to spend less on packaging the product. Not to mention they don't have to purchase new tech, or expensive tech, they could sell it for less and STILL make a profit. Not to mention if they use hardware that developers know, it'll make it much easier to bust out games and have more Multiplatform games worth it on PSP2. But I'd honestly say I'd only buy one if it could speak directly with my PS3, and I could continue my game saves onto my PSP2 from PS3. Not to mention it'd have to cost under $300. We also need to see some PS3 Features on it aswell, such as trophies and such. And maybe connect it all together with the PSN. Allowing you to sign in with your PSN Profile and such. All necessities for PS3 Users to purchase it. But first and foremost, we NEED PSP2 and PS3 connectivity. More than using it as a rear view mirror, or collecting little items in the 2 or 3 games that allow it.
