PSP2 to Launch in time for Christmas 2011


PSP2 to Launch in time for Christmas 2011

The PSP2 will be launched in the UK by the end of next year, according to online reports. Gaming site VG247 claims it has an anonymous source that confirmed that, “it’s coming in late 2011”.

The news would make sense if Sony doesn’t want to give the Nintendo’s 3DS too much of a head start, with it confirmed that the console will be released in the UK in March. Of course, as well as Nintendo, it also has the non-insignificant threat of the iOS based gaming to contend with.

Rumours also abound that developers are already working on games for the forthcoming console with reports of development kits being sent out to developers.

Detailed hardware specifications such as display size and CPU are unknown at this point, but a hefty bump in graphical quality is to be expected. The PSP2 is widely expected to feature two analogue controllers and cameras front and rear, and could feature a touch screen, as well as physical controls.

No doubt all will be revealed at E3 in June next year, if not sooner.

Type in 2nd paragraph, should read DS3d will be released in March, not psp2.

Although I'm still in favour of dedicated devices, if Sony keep the PSPGo form factor adding a touch screen and basic mobile phone functionality, this just might be a great "playphone" or "funphone" to rub in the faces of the smartphone people.

(I should trademark "playphone" and "funphone", I think.)

Won't get long to play on it if 2012 is when the world ends lol... Hopefully Sony will put a 2nd anologstick on there. Don't care about a camera its all about the gaming so it should have specs like a HTC Desire or something. 1ghz processor 512mb of ram etc...

Everyone remember now, whenever Sony show it off look disinterested. Say "Yeah looks decent...whatever"

We don't want a repeat of Nintendo's "We can charge whatever we want because the buzz is huge" now do we.

Wonder how many of these PSP2 due *insert time here* stories we will have to go through before the thing is announced*
