Rumor: PSP 2 Announcement Could Possibly Be At E3

It’s a few weeks before E3 and you know what that means, Sony’s secret unveils for their conference is getting laughably tossed around the internet. Another rumor is going around that the PSP2 may finally be releasing, not a smaller, thinner, UMD-less version of the original PSP, but a true second version of the PSP. MCV is claiming that various publishers are spilling the beans and hinting about a PSP 2.

We thought that we would see a PSP 2 last year but it was only the PSP go which hasn’t experienced the most amazing sales since release either. Plus it’s probably about time that a new PSP gets release, since Sony is lacking support for their PSP, big-time, even though they did an okay job last year. Also the sales are slumping,  the PSP sold 14.1 million PSP’s in 2008 while only selling 9.9 million in 2009. Not to mention it’s around six years since the PSP first release, usually the amount of time of new console releases. We will see at E3 but usually when the word’s out for Sony, it’s usually in some way true, especially the rumors before E3.

    It would be a miracle. I REALLY hope they do, i have been holding off on all these other PSP remakes for years now! Some part of me feels like Sony still wont do it yet, but i sure hope they do.

    I hope this will have PS2 emulation like the current can play PS1 games. I can see Sony starting to release PS2 classics on the PS Store to play on either the PS3 or on your PSP2. I hope the PSP2 is basically a Dualshock with a screen.

    @Gabeusmc19:

    Yea i like the design on that pic. If it looks something like that I would definitely buy it. Touch screen would be nice and a built in camera.

    I’ve been telling myself that it will be announced at E3 this year but I bet it will be another updated version, and if thats the case then I will be very disappointed.

    IF …… PSP 2 doesnt have phone capabilities ,dual sticks and a vivid touch screen it will fail like the go because Apple owns that market…….. The handheld market just ask nintendo they see Apple as the Future

    PSP GO failed miserably, and Jack Tretton will go out in public and say how it was successful…omg! I think Sony should just give up on handheld and let Nintendo own the market
