    Well, there have been rumors and supposed leaked pics of it for a while now, so hopefully this is true and we get some juicy details that day.
    Also, if you're a DS fanboy and you're gonna post some crap like "sony sucks", "the psp has no gaemz lul" or "ds ftw", don't.

    That phone is horrible. Why would you want to use your phone as a gaming device?

    Did you even read anything? At all?
    Wait, don't answer. You didn't.
    And in case you didn't know, the PSP2 is a different device from the Xperia Play phone/PSP phone/PS phone/whatever you want to call it. Or at least from we is known so far.

    Tell that to the people with iPhones.
    Anyway, I very much hope that they won't actually announce the phone.

    well let me just say that "better graphics and an extra analog stick" won't make me buy a PSP2.
    I'd rather buy the PSphone to be honest because i always wanted to get an Android phone.

    It's gonna be interesting to see a how previous PSP owners are gonna react to the PSP2.
    Are God of War, Uncharted and Killzone enough reasons for them to buy a PSP2?

    If it has Peace Walker 2 then I'm just sold. Peace Walker rocked my socks.

    And there's plenty of other reasons to buy a PSP2. If it gets a larger PSX library (and an actually good control scheme for 'em), possibly even PS2 titles, then that alone will be plenty good.

    There's also Ratchet and Clank, which I would enjoy, and hopefully they'd revive Jak and Daxter (if they just brought us back to The Precursor Legacy type of gameplay I'd be blown away). I'd even be more blown away if they got their hands back on Spyro and Crash and made actually good games for them (outside of the three excellent PSX games, which in my opinion blew Super Mario 64 out of the water as platformers).

    They've also got an upper hand on Final Fantasy (the PSP did have Dissidia, Crisis Core, etc), Kingdom Hearts (even I'll admit BBS, despite the usual bad narrative, was better than 358/2 and I have yet to try Re:coded) and some other franchises (Persona, etc).

    Just saying, when it comes to game library, there's plenty of appeal to Sony and the PSP.

    I wonder if it'll have a no-glasses 3D screen to compete with the 3DS?

    Even if they do announce the PSP2, I wouldn't get my hopes up for any "recent" release date, on account of the fiasco of a situation they're having with the PSP & PS3. Sony won't put out another product until they're sure it'll be "secure", which means relatively little to us. It'll be interesting to see what kind of security measures will be on the 3DS and PSP2, that's for sure.

    The PSP2 (w/e it will be called) is going to be...interesting. If it's been in developer hands since last year, the hardware could potentially already be dated. That's doubtful and not really a concern though.

    The main concern: Is it better than the 3DS? Can it at least legitimately compete with the 3DS? Will it have good developer support after the screw up known as every single PSP model to date now?

    I don't own a PSP. I've spent limited time with one. I'm a very DS oriented person. I still loved what I played of the PSP, would love to own a hacked 1000 or early 2000 series model, and really want to enjoy the good games available. In the end though, it just can't compete in the upcoming generation for handhelds. Like the DS/DSlite/DSi, it will become dated very quickly. Damn you hardware and game systems and your inability to last beyond a few years before the next thing comes out.

    I don't doubt that the PSP2 will have gorgeous graphics, though I do doubt it being substantially better than the 3DS. I don't foresee people emulating PS2 games on it, nor do I foresee it having, say, an Xbox emulator or a Gamecube emulator.

    Like the 3DS when we only knew it's name though, we'll just have to wait and see for the details. If anything, it will just be announced for the public to know about with limited details. I do kind of hope they plan to get it out no later than quarter 4 this year, as a post Holiday release would leave Sony further behind with competitor sales soaring with no other real options available.

    Announce a Devil May Cry with Dante for it and I'm instantly sold! Still sold nonetheless from what little I know of it so it's a "eventually I will get one later" sort of deal. The grass is always greener on the other side so I will has a 3DS and PSP 2.

    I doubt it will have substantially better graphics than the 3DS too... We've already seen that the 3DS is capable of producing similar graphics to certain PS3/360 games, albeit on a smaller scale. If the PSP2 has something better than that then it probably will be even more expensive than the 3DS and with the current rumors of the 3DS's price a lot of people aren't happy with them. If the PSP2 is even more expensive nobody'll buy it. Like you say it's gonna be interesting to see just what will be the PSP2's main appeal against the 3DS.

    Jesus what is this Sony month or something? Anyways, I doubt it will be the PSP2. It will probably be the phone, and save the PSP2 for E3.

    With all the hacking crap for PSPs and PS3s I wouldn't be surprised if Sony tried to rush out the PSP2...

    On a side note I hope they go with a better name than PSP2...

    I don't see why they don't just merge the PSPhone and the PSP 2. Just make two different models of the same thing, like the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    I'm really excited on how the competition between these two handhelds will turnout.Also,I'm really curious about the price point for the console.

    Why would they want there PSP to have a lousy 1GHz processor? The graphics wouldn't be good as the 3DS. Their goal is to have better graphics then the 3DS.

    I had no reason at all to buy a PSP until Kingdom Hearts BBS came out and the emulators couldn't do anything with it. Now that I have one, and have beaten BBS, I have no purpose for it. I love the system to death, but there's no good games, which is our fault anyway for hacking it so quickly.
    *inb4 haha you fell for the stereotype*

    I look forward to the PSPhone and intend to get one next year, but a PSP2? No no no. I'm gonna wait on that. If it gets hacked and no good games are coming out, I'll wait until they make a KH game for it to buy it. I wish Sony the best on it.
