    Where intellect matters
    Wasn't it that we had 50 "highly trusted sources" saying the PSP2 would be announced 6 months ago?

    The 3DS has been pretty much confirmed to be a nest gen handheld and not just another iteration. Now 4 is still quite a lot but I don't really count the DSi XL as being separate as it doesn't include any extra hardware or features other than the bigger screen (ok, and a few DSiWare titles and a chunky stylus).

    Back on topic; I don't really see the logic of making the 4000, there aren't any major complaints about the 3000 (or 2000 and 1000 only the Go) and I think it would make more sense to just develop the PSP2 or whatever name the come up with instead of trying to market it to an audience that has only just seen the release of the 3000. Most of the people I know have stuck with their 1000s and unless it has some drastically new features (and a UMD drive) I don't see that changing.

    you shouldn't count the DSl either then.
    and the PSP3k
    those both didn't bring any significant different either.
    just like the XL, the DSl was pretty much a case redesign.
    and the 3k only has slightly better TV-out compatibility, and an improved screen.

    i do think though that the 4k if it is released might be worth buying.
    i really like the PSPGO design, but they made 1 big mistake they can now try to fix: all previous purchases become worthless.
    even if it's just a PSPgo with UMD drive, i'd want it.

    A case redesign that shrunk the system a good deal. Many of the parts are smaller and more compact, they made the sacreens brigher and bascially addressed the complaints about the big, dim, ugly DS original ( I still love my DSOriginal though [​IMG] )

    PSP 4000? Got my hacked 1000 here, don't trust the newer UMD drawer designs at all

    It could also be the PSP2. Sure the rumor says it's not, but look how hard they tried to keep PSPGo underwraps last year? Claiming it was fake etc. Heck they did that with the PS3 Slim.

    Wern't logitech or datel or someone designing an external UMD drive for it?

    Perhaps they will release a PSP go-ish PSP4000 but includes an external UMD Drive!

    EDIT: Old shit but if Sony has stuck to their designs, we might get PSP 4000 with UMD Drive. Source

    Well.. one thing. I havn't really seen the psp improve at all during these revamps. However from the NDS to the NDSi is a HUGE differrence!
    PSP-1000 to PSP-3000 however... meh.
