Word on the street is that Sony will be announcing a proper sequel to the PSP in just a couple of weeks at E3. That's right—we're not talking something slimmer, more slidy-outy, or colorful. A true PSP2. UPDATE


The rumors are emanating from within several gaming publishers, and with E3 just around the corner in June all shall be revealed as to how Sony plans to tackle Nintendo's 3DS, also due for announcement at the show. [MCV via Kotaku]

UPDATE: Sony's latest financial results show a desperate need for a new PSP. From 14.1million PSP sales in 2008, to 9.9million in 2009? Ouch. Especially considering the PSP Go launched last year.



I don't see why they didn't skip the GO and release a PSP2 to begin with. It will be interesting if they promote it as a Nintendo threat or one to the iPhone and iPod touch. I'm seriously considering an iPad for portable gaming. I would love to jailbreak it just to do emulator's . I think some of the old Atari, NES and Genesis titles would be pretty kick ass on the iPad.
