260w ago - According to Edge Online (linked above), Sega has leaked a confidential [Register or Login to view links] (removed now) of a meeting with SCEA held in August by accidently uploading it to their public FTP site.

Among other things, the document states a March 2010 release for Sony's new Motion Controller in Japan with the ambition of selling 4-5 million units world-wide. No Prices or Bundles are mentioned though, yet.

Unfortunately it doesn't mention any further details or the possibility to play PS2 game discs.

To quote: We've contacted Sony and Sega for comment and have reprinted the document in question in its entirety below:

Rumor has it that Sony may be planning to release at least eight different PSP model revisions according to PSPGen (linked above).

While investigating PSP Firmware 6.00, apparently an index_0xg.dat file in it can load from _01g to _08g... which may mean support for eight versions.

Of course this isn't concrete evidence as the modules could simply be associated with prototype or debug versions, but don't be surprised if we end up seeing another PSP revision next year.

To quote: "One demo focused on synchronized playback of multimedia content. The player was able to access a virtual media player whose menu contained listings for real net radio and pod casts.

Additionally, the player's virtual Bravia set was made to show commercials. In both instances, users were able to enjoy the content with their friends.

Another demo, which was developed in five days, showed a cute (?) pet robot walking about a player's room. The player could scold the robot to make it calm down (and then get angry), call out to the robot to make it come close, and do other activities that one might do with a pet.

Kando pointed out that this system allows for single players...
