Can't wait to get my PSP2.

Wow. That's a lot of stuff we know. Sony confirm it.

What we know.

3G- Thank you. Hopefully 4G will come as well (probably a newer model). 3G gives you access to the PS store, as well as other apps. Hopefully we'll be able to play online over 3G, or 4G.

OLED touch screen- I said this a while back in my comments, as well as several other people. The OLED screen just makes sense, it low energy consumption with a great image. But it to be a touch screen, after hearing there was going to be one on the back.

Dual Analog Sticks- Thank you. FPS here we come.

Rear Touch Panel- This has me confused. I don't know what the purpose of this is, if the OLED screen is touch sensitive as well. Sony's going to have to show this off.

Processor- It's either a 1Ghz, the Tegra 2, or a micro cell. Here's hoping to the Cell, since devs. already have a grasp on the Cell, so PSP2 games should be easier to develop for.

What we'd like

PSN- Agree

Remote Play- I said the same thing.

Memory Stick- It was over priced, and now I'm stuck with them. Micro SD is the better choice, so offer both.

UMD- TO answer their question, because a lot of people buy used games, a lot of UMD's were much cheaper than the digital download counterparts, not all PSP games were on PSN, and the UMD's give people a physical copy which some people want. I have a Go, but I'm glad I have my PSP2000 still. I don't like UMD's, but there are benefits.

Backwards compatibility- It better have it.

Qriocity- I'm expecting this as well.

HDMI out- It's nice to be able to play your games on you TV, and Dual Shock support would be nice as well.

Connectors- That stupid PSP Go cable has to go.

Android- Pretty, pretty please.

Wifi is better than 3G just so you know. Unless your using DSL at the lowest bandwidth. I see from the patents that the screen is gonna slide, but when closed you can flip it open to transform it into a DS styled screen. I see them also mentioning something about a new type of touch screen. Instead of having two analog sticks, its gonna use a new type of touch screen that seems that it could possibly even take the Ipad? Oled screen, but no 4G? missing analog sticks, bad ass processor but its a phone? Smarter than a smart phone? This is getting very interesting.

This is gonna be awesome, cannot wait!
