149w ago - Since the previous PSP2 Dev Kit picture leak, Kotaku (linked above) has now posted what may be the first leaked official retail picture of Sony's PSP2 handheld console while VG247.com reports that Sony will reveal the PSP2 on January 27th in Tokyo.
To quote: This art work surfaced online today on 2CH, Japan's largest online forum.
The photo features a handheld believed to be the PSP2, which has a PSPgo style sliding shell. There is a 32 GB SD memory card as well, plus a "PSP2" Memory Stick. There is a long, thin stylus as well. According to Japan's Nikkei newspaper, the PSP2 will have a touch screen.
Unlike the current PSP, there are two analog nubs, giving this handheld a controller layout similar to the PS3.
What is fishy about the picture is that it appears to be a photograph of a handout of some kind. While handouts may be present at the January 27 press conference, it's also a good way for a Photoshopper to hide their work, as it masks any differences in resolution you'd be able to detect in an online image.

I hope you had a good start to the week and 'Blue Monday' didn't hit you too hard! It's Wednesday so we've got a Store update for you, including the kick off of the January sales.
Two fabulous new PSN games hit today (complete with trials) in the form of Spare Parts - the new robotic adventure from EA and Modern Combat: Domination, a Move-enabled FPS with compelling gameplay at a compelling price. If you've ever played a game of Counterstrike you'll be instantly at home with this one.
New minis hit as well, including the wildly popular Shift extended, the previously Plus-only Pipe Madness and Soccer Bashi.
Downloadable content? Well why not, eh? Trinity Universe, Tron: Evolution, R.U.S.E. and lots of extra bits and pieces for the newly released Mass Effect II - but don't get the Cerberus pack if you've purchased a version of the game with the extra content included in the box.
Also we've got another multiplayer update for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood which will cost you precisely nothing - isn't that nice?
