    PSP2 Is Real, 'Pretty Powerful' And In Developers' Hands


    source: http://www.industrygamers.com/news/psp2-is...velopers-hands/


    so the fabled device does exist, im surprised it didnt pop up in TGS
    but more to the point of "pretty powerful" which seems it will be pretty high end compared to what we have seen to far

    I saw this before, i didn't post it as it doesn't say anything substantial. Anyways, like I said no real info on it other than it exists, I just hope Sony releases it after the shock-wave of the 3DS (like holiday 2011)

    Isn't this just a rumor though?
    Perhaps it should be labeled as one so people don't fret.

    Where intellect matters
    I'm still getting a 3DS. I have a feeling Sony is just going to one up the 3DS in graphics and thing that's all they have to do.

    It'll be a repeation of last/current gen handhelds :|

    What I want to know is, will PSP2 at least feature games installed on flash-based memory sticks?
    UMDs were cumbersome, downloads only was the death of the PSP Go, the only feasible way to make the handhelds games market always has been game cartridges.

    Because the PS3 was a bad system?

    The PSP was powerful and it had some decent games. Not as much as the DS but it was worth a purchase.

    Comes to something when after all these years of progress and development, we had it right on the original Game Boy.

    I expect it to one up the 3DS' graphics, and if we're lucky, actually have some decent controls. This Sony, after all.

    sony should probably wait out on the announcement. might loose some of its magic if it really is just a graphics update. devs are way too pumped for 3ds right now, they should probably just wait for the excitement to die down.

    He was probably talking about the analog nub. It worked but it wasn't perfect. I'd rather have a full-on analog stick myself.

    It's real. It's not called "PSP2" or PSP.

    Industry Gamers is a bullshit web site. Their idea of "industry" is working at Walmart.

    The PS3 is not a bad system, but it was kinda carried early in life, imo. Developers could barely use any more than 2 of it's 8 SPEs in the beginning because of how awkward it was to work with, making the development result feel equal to the XBox360 in terms of capabilities. They had to wait for Sony to modify their development tools to slowly take advantage of it.

    Maybe the 2000 and 3000 were better, but the D-Pad makes my thumb cramp up after extended play and the buttons are impossible to press rapidly. R and L jiggle around too. I'm not a fan of any part of the controls, really. And I think you're going too far saying that the analog nub worked.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play Persona 3 Portable.

    I agree, but I loved my org. PSP 1000, the weight, etc. made it feel better made and could handle a drop. Try anything with my 2000, and it's back to gamestop to buy another one.
