Magazine unveils new PSP2 pictures?

A magazine called PSM3 has an article related to PSP2 with supporting images of the portable gaming device. The image of the PSP2 looks like the leaked devkit images that were published by VG247 but the picture quality seems pretty sharp, neat and seems to have details as well.

Could this be real? Could this be fake? Only time will tell but till then, it's best to take this news with a grain of salt.

well im sure there will be a few people who blindly believe this and post without even clicking on the link lol

dc12912d ago

..But boy does it look good!
(See beginning of the article second paragraph)

Zydake2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Maybe they'll announce the PSP2 soon to battle the 3DS. And if it can play PS3 type of games 0.0 it'll be day 1 to me !

*Edit

forgot to add that of course its a fake but my original post is a thought.

I did a few researching and apparently PSM3 approached this guy from an online forum...

even if this were a psp2 concept model or wutever, id prefer the thumb nubs below the d-pad and buttons, not above

HolyOrangeCows2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Probably a mockup.

EDIT:
@Comet
LOL, oh geez.
So much integrity in this industry.

Bad desing on the buttons by the screen. It needs to be flat not sticking out and terrible positioning of the sticks. Oh well, whoever made the pic is good though.

Muletroid2912d ago

who approved this? why is it even a top page article?

there is no article or story here its just A FORUM POST
i see waaaay loads of people report something just because its a forum

how did this get approved man the rules don't even matter here anymore

at least make a story out of this

Digitaldude2912d ago

Yeah looks good, sleek design. I wouldn't mind if it was real.

Masterchef20072912d ago

It does look nice. But i have doubts on how usefull the track pad will be since you cant exactly see where your fingers are on the screen. I rather wait for official specs from sony. I am sure that it will be more powerful than the 3DS what i dont know is how much more. If they can replicate 360 graphics on the go that would be great

inveni02912d ago

I don't even think the article is real. If it is, they have a number of typos that were missed by the editor. Plus, this would have to be the best mag scan EVER (of course, I'm not sure if it's a digital copy, since I couldn't find a digital copy available on the mag's site). Or, if this is a leaked PDF, who is the source?

Second, I don't think the design is even real because the placement of the analog sticks don't seem natural.

gaffyh2912d ago

It's obviously a render, but it doesn't look sleek enough to be a Sony design. The analog placements look like they will be actually quite comfortable there though, even though it looks a little strange.

SWORDF1SH2912d ago

it is a design they made based on that psp2 photo and info they have received.

I have this mag and they make that point very clear

obviously fake

frontline isn't even a gaming magazine
this is like Time having a scoop on a gaming system before its even revealed

Nitrowolf22912d ago

It's not Frontlines Mag its PSM3

Nitrowolf22912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Looks just like the PSP GO, except with more stuff and different location of buttons +2 Analogsticks. Looks better built also the the GO.

IDK, according to the page its a render dev kit. I like how it looks, i'm not really sure what i am expecting to how the PSP2 to even look anyway. Just as long as it's powerful.

So built in camera (both front and behind)
2 AnalogSticks
and a Track Pad

qface642912d ago

how did this even get passed? its not even a story its just a forum post

ive had a bunch load of stories closed simply because it was a forum even when they actually had a story to it
>____>

Darth_Bane792912d ago

And I have also seen a lot of good stories getting reported because a bunch of goofballs think it's lame.. So it's basically like this: Personal opinion > Actual fact.

showtimefolks2912d ago

when i say either it will be announced at GDC or E3 my guess is we will see it at GDC

as long as it has 2 analong sticks and it can produce a little better graphics i am all for it

kneon2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

The Playstation phone, or whatever they are going to call it will likely be announced at the Mobile World Congress in February. It's possible, though unlikely, that the PSP2 could also be announced then. But E3 is the most likely time for that announcement.

meetajhu2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Its PSM3 and i think its legit.

8thnightvolley2912d ago

is this is he psp2 for real i would get it thou powerful little bugger.

Blacktric2912d ago

"A magazine called FRONTLINE..."

It's Frontline section of PSM3 magazine. Look below.

CaptainPunch2912d ago

Idk, it looks pretty legit to me. Hoping for Sony to officially reveal the PSP2 soon.

Bull5hifT2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

I sorta really dont like all that extra wasted space on the round edges, id prefer round bottom,and a morphed squarish look to fit the nice Huge 720 p display on top ..... A thing that sorta bothers me out in public while playing is looking down at the screen , i feel im growing a hump and forcing a double chin ... Always in that position

cLiCK_sLiCK92912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Lol...I remember when everyone was calling the PS3 Slim fake and ugly when first pics were first leaked. Turned out to be real as time passed.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2912d ago

definately needs to be cloud based only. I know we all like our hard copies but in order for it to be a truly portable system it doesn't need to be held back by having to carrying disks or memory sticks wherever you take it. Without a disk drive, hdd, or a memory stick slot it should drop the price considerably as well. come to think of it... this could be what playstation cloud was patented for. As long as they put the entire psp library on it.

Punknoodle2911d ago

How would that work on a portable system depending on crappy wifi for the internet?

..and I really love my Droid X. Very happy that its not out now...as I fear that my very powerful 'knee jerk' purchasing powers would take over.

Tony-A2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

Looks just like the blurry dev kit shots. If true, it looks more sturdy than the PSP.

The way the buttons and analog sticks are dug in would add validity to the rumors heard from IGN about them being somewhat "concaved".

Whatever. My rumor-squashing abilities were done after truly believing that the old "leaked PS3 Slim" footage from a store in Indonesia was 100% fake. I was shocked to find out that a small store in a foreign country actually got a hold of the Slim 4-5 months before it was even announced.

SnakeMustDie2912d ago

Its obviously FAKE!! Although I hope its real. I want a new NEXT-GEN PSP that can run games as beautiful as GoW3.

NonApplicable2912d ago (Edited 2912d ago )

All the idiots who are screaming "FAKE!" should read before mouthing off. The website clearly created this image by comparing the previous leaked dev kit. In fact, it explains it in the post...

KiasuKiasiMan2912d ago

Frontline is the name of the section.

The magazine is the PlayStation Magazine 3
