    Its just a rumor. And besides, that will probably kill their sales more because not everyone on the planet has the internetz, and even so, its probably sloooooow.

    Here's a few things to think of as this rumor has to be crap most likely.

    1) No gaming retailer will want to sell a piece of hardware that they can't make any money off of. They get their cut in games, in particular (Gamestop etc likes) from used games. With all digital, no profit, and no profit = screw sony and more room for DS.

    2) In Japan, very doable as there's broadband everywhere. Everywhere else, no. The US overall is limited, a good many have, not everyone so the infrastructure and viability isn't there.

    3) People who believe in owning what they buy (like me.) I want a real copy, something I'll have as long as I've had Super Mario Bros 1 on cart (since '85.) Digital signed crap you have as long as their leisure permits.

    Things like that will stop this crap from ever happening on a large scale. The best they can hope for is requiring all games have both a hard and a downloadable copy over PSN which is what they've partly done to date on PSP.

    My thoughts:

    1) Probably Not True

    2) Could be that the games on stored on pre-made memory cards with the games logo on, faster/more space than UMD

    3) I doubt it will turn to completely downloadable games/apps, as mentioned before the game store companies would lose revenue.

    Any plan of a PSP 2 is a rumor itself. Face it, the PSP is dying.
    Games are rarely made now. The only games that people will look forward to now are probably KH, FFXIII, PSP, and Resistance.

    You may want to look at this then swallow your mistake...

    Post originally was done 12/29/08 ...was just updated by Sony's rep or whatever in the last day or so. There's a TON of stuff coming for 2009 and much I don't think people were expecting.

    Assassins Creed, Motorstorm, LittleBigPlanet, Monster Hunter Unite (aka I suppose Freedom 3), Tenchu 4(the wii game), they're saying another GTA is rumored, Kingdom Hearts, PixelJunk Monsters(PSN), Dirt 2, Undead Knights, Samurai Shodown Anth, Air Conflicts Aces of WW2(I've read it's good), RockBand Unplugged, some EA sports games.

    There's more there.

    Also may I suggest for $10 -- No Gravity on the PSN. It's fan fucking tastic...it's like a more flashy looking yet easy to control wing commander wannabe. Very fun, based off a free indy game from a few years back (which is free to d/l still on their site as promotion for the PSP game.)

    Man, PSP is such a great piece of hardware. You can't really go wrong with it.
    It'll be a while before they stop making games for it, and PSP 3000 is proof of that. They wouldn't make it so people could just update their PSPs.
