    I dont where else to put this. Used search could find anything.

    Form the below article we can say that the PSP2 will have the following feature/ non features

    Sliding Screen
    NO UMD drive
    Will allow shoulder button games when closed
    screen similar to PSP 3000


    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/developer-backs-up-psp-4000-chatter

    Now if they make it like this I know I would want one instantly. Whatever Sony it will be hard to make it look more impressive then this.

    PSP 2?

    No UMD is great in some ways, i.e Less loadings etc. But what about the back catalogue. Possibly downloadble through PSN. And so on.

    Isn't that picture just speculation on the PSP2 from around 2 years ago?

    I like it, but not sure how true it is. Also I don't see how the back catalogue would work without UMD. I wouldn't want to download a game from PSN for 14.99 knowing full well it is 4.99 preowned in Gamestation on UMD.

    Also UMD movies would be obsolete - although that is likely to happen eventually anyway.

    That device is not PSP2, but PSP-4000, a rumoured upgrade to the existing PSP. Thread fails.

    Without UMD, it really is a new handheld all together.

    Surely if it look totally different and changes its media format it is PSP2?

    I don't believe it though. I'd like to, that mock up looks the tits.

    No, the hardware is the same, it'd just be a PSP without a UMD drive.

    Not really. Sony have been pushing the store and downloadable titles for quite some time now. In fact.

    No it isn't, you can download PSP games from the PSN already.

    If it's download only - I want the hardware for 50 and the games for 4.99 or I'm out.

    I thought that was a fan made mock-up which has been around for years?

    I thought the psp itself was selling pretty darn well. Hence Sony's push towards PSN. I call bullshit.

    I agree with this idea. Download should mean passing the savings onto the consumer.

    If they did release this without a UMD drive and it's not a PSP2 can anyone explain how you'll be able to play UMD games on it?

    Probably with an attachment/external drive or something.

    That would be stupidly cheap though. It'd be pitched against the iPhone, which is hundreds of pounds.

    And PSP is selling quite well, the problem is that people aren't buying it as a games machine.

    Ideally they'd re-release all the UMD games onto the store, or give you some way to rip them onto a memory stick.

    Seriously? Portable media player. It's one of the best around, the screen in particular is fantastic.

    If someone was looking for a portable media player I can't believe anyone would choose the PSP over an iPhone or Touch to be honest.

    Personally I want Sony to dump the PSP and just get SonyEricsson to make Playstation Phones with big HDDs, going that route would make alot more sense.

    I've had a PSP and traded it in for a Touch - no contest - Touch wins hands down. PSP only comes out on top for games at the moment.

    DSi is the shittest idea ever, it isn't going to 'whoop' anything.

    Plus the PSP already did the whole camera thing with the EyeToy attachment

    PSP - $160
    iPod Touch - $230

    PSP also has a bigger screen and is better for watching video on. Also, iPod Touch is pretty new, so it's only just started infringing on the PSP market.

    That's not to say I think the PSP is better. I'd definitely take iPod Touch over it any day, but the PSP has a lot to offer as well, and I can see why some people would choose it.

    Thats unrealistic. I think the handheld will be around 100 pounds if not more and games will cost up too 19.99, even if its downloadable only.
