    "According to "publisher sources", Eurogamer are reporting that games for a true successor to the PlayStation Portable - a PSP2, if you will - are already in development.

    If correct, this means Sony's second handheld console is, what...a year away? Two at the most? Sounds about right, when you consider the original PSP launched in 2004. Five-to-six years is a healthy lifespan for a handheld.

    Still, that's all pie-in-the-sky stuff at the moment. It's for the distant future. Closer to the present is news that, in the meantime, Sony plans another iteration of the current PSP, the PSP-4000. Due for release in late 2009, no other details were mentioned, though with a new PSP on the horizon any changes would surely be minor ones."

    Well.. supposing it will be launched in 2010.. Sony should be starting to work on big launch titles now.. makes sense..

    A PSP4000 doesn't make much sense though.. I don't see what else they can do with the thing.. unless it's the long rumored PSP Phone [​IMG]

    They could fix that screen issue they have, for starters [​IMG] Chances are it'll be a 3001 model, though. I sincerely doubt a 4000 model will come to light.

    If they make a PSP2 they'll probably add a cell phone type feature to it.

    ... which news post to believe.
    can't believe both, no way someone would be working on a psp2 game when sony didn't even start working on a psp2.

    Isn't there a topic in the PSP forum saying that Sony has no plans for a PSP2/PS2P?

    If the PSP2 is anything like the PSP, it won't be worth buying for at LEAST a year. And I'm predicting the 4k will have other useless gimmicky features like the 3k.

    Doesn't really make sense for 2009, seeing as the psp3000 is coming out Christmas-time this year in the US. If they're making one, i'll expecting a 2011-2012 release date.

    The psp 4000 is nonsense they just release 3000, and it had some problem I would hope they would fix it first, the psp2 looks awesome hope it doesn't cost 500 dollars, otherwise it's going to fail just like ps3.

    A portable PS2? As long as it has dual analog sticks and dedicated L1/L2/R1/R2 buttons, sign me up. Otherwise, forget it.

    Anyone think a touch screen is a good idea for PSP2? Think Sony will add one?

    I personaly think a touch screen is a must.
