150w 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.

155w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared an Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception PS3 gameplay reveal today.
To quote: Today, even more came out about UNCHARTED 3, as Naughty Dog and SCEA hosted media in Hollywood for a more in-depth look at the game.
Worry not, those of you who feared the entirety of Drake's Deception would take place in the swirling sands of the Rub' al-Khali Desert.
The scene we witnessed (demoed in real time) took place in a dilapidated French chateau. Nathan Drake and Sully are following the trail of T.E. Lawrence (you've likely heard of "Lawrence of Arabia") to find a clue that'll take them to the lost Arabian referred to as "The Atlantis of the Sands."
Before reading on, take a look at this excerpt, which shows about a quarter of what was demoed.
Early on, we see some of the details that Game Director Justin Richmond tells us to keep an eye out for: Drake jumping onto, and then off of a swaying chandelier, climbing not only up, but backwards if he reaches a ledge, and new contextual animations that show Drake interacting more with his surroundings (e.g. placing your hand along a wall for balance as you approach it).
183w ago - Today GamesRadar.com (linked above) has uncovered two purportedly leaked viral video trailers from YouTube user SCElabs, which may be intended for Sony's PS4 and hint at a PlayStation 4 E3 2010 reveal!
Of course, this news comes despite Sony previously citing the PS3 will have a ten year lifespan and Sony CEO Jack Trettonstating PS4 will arrive only when technology exceeds the PS3 entertainment system.
Kotaku reports that the viral videos appear to be promoting Modern Warfare 2 going 3D on the PS3 despite the PS4 logo.
To date, there have been countless PS4 rumors (like this one and this one) so feel free to share your comments below if you feel these videos are legit or just part of a viral marketing campaign.
