Rumor: PSP2 Will Be Sony's Big Surprise at E3 2010

241w ago - There have been countless PSP2 rumors in circulation, from forecasted features to the graphics chip, but according to MCVUK.com (linked above) it appears that analysts may be correct as the PlayStation Portable 2 is rumored to be Sony's big surprise at E3 2010.

To quote: "MCV has been informed of a significant increase in marketing spend at two key publishers for Q4 2010. At a time when the PSP is languishing in Western markets - and its most recent iteration, the PSPgo, is falling flat - it is being speculated that publishers are laying the ground for an offensive on a brand new iteration of Sony's handheld.

Another publisher has also told MCV that it is waiting on a specific announcement from the platform holder before it can reveal of its future PSP plans until, though it did allude to the ongoing development of several unnamed titles behind closed doors.

The PSP is currently in its sixth year on the market, and despite having undergone a number of revisions remains largely unchanged from its initial launch."

I think that picture is just a concept design and not the final product tbh

UMD backwards compatability may not be sony's primary concern with the psp2 becuase other wise it could just be seen as a new iteration of the pspGO with better hardware.

I think what sony may want to do with the psp2 is seperate it completely from the psp and UMD and create not a new medium, but a new delivery method for games such as download only/transfer psn games via ps3/read-only memory sticks etc.

They've already shown a lack of concern over B/C (pspGo and ps3 slim) so i believe that this will be a completely revamped psp with some familiar features but alot more to offer (iphone style apps, skype etc)

The psp2 is a fresh start for sony in the handheld market and should probably not be thought of as an upgrade, but instead a completely new handheld altogether (basically, don't call it "psp2")

that would be funny if sony came out with umd size blu-ray discs for use in the psp2. if they do come out with a new kind of media, i just hope that the new psp is compatible with the umds that i already own. oh, and no touch screen please.

Well, I hope it comes with 2 analog sticks. R2 and L2 buttons would be desairable. And, with remote control on PS3, more compatibility with PS3 games (at least with those donwloaded from PSN), to be able to play PS3 games wherever.
