Rumor: Sony Planning PSP-4000 in 2009, PSP2 to Arrive Later

50°
314w ago - Eurogamer (linked above) posted news that a PSP-4000 will be released in 2009, which will apparently feature slight hardware upgrades.

They also mentioned that a PSP2 is still planned, despite David Reeve's recent denial.

To quote: Sony plans to refresh the PlayStation Portable product line with a PSP-4000 model in late 2009 and launch a true successor - a PSP2, if you like - later.

Publishing sources, speaking to Eurogamer, were unable to provide any further detail on next year's update, which will presumably follow this year's PSP-3000 in taking an iterative approach. The PSP-3000 launched this October and followed a 2000-series model, the first Slim & Lite, in September 2007.

Even fewer details were available on the PSP successor, but we're told that developers are already working on games.

Sony has not ruled out either scenario, despite SCEE president David Reeves' assertion in MCV last week that "there are currently no plans for a PSP2". "I go to Tokyo quite a lot and no one has referred to it - I think they have their hands full at the moment," he said, non-committally.

Soldner-X Delayed Until Late November for PlayStation Network

50°
321w ago - Last month Eastasiasoft said their space shooter Söldner-X was on target to become a PlayStation Network download in October... which apparently is no longer the case.

To quote: Since it's the last week in October I thought we would see it on this Thursday's PlayStation Store update. After searching their forums I discovered this was not the case.

Himmelsstürmer, a Forum Moderator there explains as follows, "The game will be pushed back to a late November release. A news update will follow shortly."

So there you have it, no Söldner-X in what's left of this month folks.
 

PSP-3000 Entertainment Pack Cancelled, Unrelated to Recalls

50°
321w ago - SCEA's Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller announced that they have seen significant interest in the Ratchet & Clank Size Matters PSP Entertainment Pack in North America, which includes the updated PSP-3000.

As a result, they will be streamlining their PSP hardware lineup and will no longer be offering the previously announced 4GB Memory PSP Entertainment Pack.

Many customers had received e-mails from online retailers to inform them that their orders for the 4GB Memory PSP Entertainment Pack had been cancelled.

This fueled rumors that there could be a recall of the PSP-3000 because of scanline issues with its screen. Consumers who are interested in a larger capacity memory option can purchase a 4GB PSP Memory Stick PRO Duo, which will be available this fall for $44.99 (MSRP).
