Multiple sites around the net are reporting on various rumors to surface about the PSP2. Instead of linking off to each and every other site, I figured I’d just take what everyone else is saying and let you all know that I didn’t come up with this stuff. Even the thumbnail you see here was taken from a message board from some anonymous fan. So let’s get to speculating!
Apparently the PSP2 will feature a touch screen, ditch all physical media, and may be 3G enabled. There are going to be two cameras on this bad boy, one front facing and one rear. Apparently there will be heavy emphasis on App-building from the third party community to rival Apple’s App Store. The only way that would work is if they open the development kits to the public, and if they do that, say hello to piracy.
Sources are also saying that gamers can expect a reveal sometime around TGS if not sooner. It’s expected to be released sometime in 2011, which is always a good guess if I do say so myself. The system is said to sport a 4-core Cell processor, which is what I find the hardest to believe. Why, because Sony stepped out of the Cell business some time ago, so why build another custom chip that will be difficult for developers to work with?
At this stage everything is purely rumors and speculation, but since E3 is right around the corner and we know Nintendo is planning to reveal the 3DS, I figured it’d be a good idea to post this and ask what all of you expect from the inevitable PSP2?
