Rumor: PSP2 Official Picture Leaked, Sony Reveal on January 27

650°
186w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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.

Going by the codename VITA, PSP2 has been in the...
 

Sony PSP2 Dev Kit Images Leaked by VG247, Sports Trackpad

400°
196w ago - Today VG247.com (linked above) has reported on some leaked images of what is believed to be the Sony PSP2 Dev Kit, which sports twin sticks and a trackpad.

To quote: "The shots clearly show the device's forward- and rear-facing cameras, as well as the much-discussed trackpad on the rear of the unit.

Note that this isn't the console's final form factor. As you can see, some developers are working with a kit with similar construction to a PSP go at the moment - see the update below - with a sliding screen over physical controls.

We don't know when the final physical spec will be nailed down, only that this isn't it. PSP2 is supposedly heading for release in late 2011.

If you're in any doubt as to the authenticity of these images, don't be. It is what it is. Enjoy.

Update: We've been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There's a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block.

Remember those last Kotaku rumours of the unit overheating? Sony switched back a form like PSP-1000 in order to cool it down."

New XBox 360 Protection in Leaked 12606 & Fall 2010 Dashboard

50°
199w ago - According to several people on X-S (linked above), new XBox 360 protection appears to have been implemented in the leaked 12606 and Fall 2010 Dashboard.

The new security against piracy and video game backups is reported in Kinect and the Beta XBox 360 Firmware along with Fable 3 thus far.

I have condensed the information to avoid being too technical, and some of the information has been taken from other people's posts from some high rated members, some not.

• In a new XBox 360 Beta firmware that leaked to the Internet, Microsoft has appears to have added new checks to see if a disc is legit inside the disc drive.

• One of the games that has been found to be giving problems is the release of Fable III. Right now it's unclear which games, DVD models and/or modified FWs are exactly affected.

• The software appears to run some checks on the disc in a way not thought before, with responses that can cause your console to be perma-banned, due to failing "Failed AP25 Challenge", OFFLINE!

• Here's some details from [Register or Login to view links], to quote: "We told you about here is now some time reports a rumor of a new integrated protection in Dashboard...
 

The PlayStation Phone is Unveiled, Leaked Pictures Surface

1000°
199w ago - Update: Today some more details and pictures surfaced on the PlayStation Phone, including the following to quote from [Register or Login to view links]:

"Furthermore, the handset pictured is running Android 2.2, though apparently there are multiple devices out there with different versions on board (including at least one packed with Android 3.0). Based on what we know, there's little chance the phone will launch with Froyo -- but it's clear these have been worked on for some time with various versions of the OS.

The device appears to have an 8GB microSD card slotted, and at least 512MB of internal storage (though we're hoping it's the 1GB we've heard would be present). As you can see from the pictures in the gallery below, the device isn't exactly thin -- we surmise that the handset is around 17mm thick, or slightly thicker than HTC's Touch Pro 2 (and funnily enough, about the same as the PSPgo)."

Today Engadget.com (linked above) has unveiled what is being called the PlayStation Phone alongside some leaked...
