    I think there will be a second analogue, aswell as a touchscreen, tilt, face buttons and directional buttons. It terms of control it should have all the bases covered.

    think this

    I don't think you can look at the iPhone App store and assume that a digital distribution model will work equally as well for a future PSP. People are fairly used to downloading basic games for their phone and even paying a few quid for them.

    Expectations for PSP/DS games are wildly higher in terms of quality, depth and length. Therefore the cost of these games would be higher also (think 20+). What a digital distribution model doesn't give you is price competition like you get currently with a physical product. You'll end up with all games remaining at full price, until they switch to the budget range. Very much like we used to get 10-15 years ago.

    It's not just that. There's a lot of pressure from retailers for companies like Sony to sell at RRP or more on downloads. As they're selling the same products physically and it's unfair if Sony turned around and offered all digital PSP games at a lower price point.

    I know that when they announce this at E3 I'm going to want to buy it immediately. And I can't afford it..

    So a mega powerful one of these on the way? Wondering whether to cash in on the PSPGo I've ordered and get a Pusp2 instead.

    OK, so now we know the recent rumours were for the PSP Go, we can all start speculating about the eventual successor to the PSP.

    Having recently discovered the joys of CFW on my PSP, I'd love to see what is essentially a portable version of the PS2 (i.e. PSP sized PS2), with either the entire PS2 catalogue available on the PS Store for less than a fiver, or the ability to rip your PS2 discs onto the PSP2's memory.

    Makes sense from a developer perspective too - the closer it is to original PS2 hardware, the more familiar developers would be with the architecture, making development of new games (potentially) easier....?

    I'd certainly pay 250 for that.

    Less than a fiver, 50% the price of the existing PSone premium titles, that sadly won't happen.

    The Missus would never allow it!

    @ Widge - OK less than a fiver is perhaps a bit optimistic, but something close would be brilliant.

    Exclusive: Sony PSP2 arriving in 2010, features PowerVR SGX543 graphics

    clocked at 222 MHz [later unlocked to 333 MHz, PSP Go can overclock to 480 MHz]

    Clearly bullshit 'news' then.

    No doubt there is a PSP2 in the works, but it's very unlikely to be released in the next 12 or so months. Might well be unveiled late next year though (along with the new DS) and then released sometime in 2011.

    Decent Digital Foundry article on PSP2 (and DS2) hardware. Based on this we could be looking at announcements next year (E3?) and European launch in late 2010 or early 2011.

    While the possible tech specs for the PSP2 look impressive, I'm worried that Sony will repeat the mistakes they made in the original PSP, and in particular the PSP Go.

    The success of the DS has proven that technical prowess does not guarantee success. Indeed, I believe that part of the problem with the PSP has been lack of innovative titles and too many attempts to shoe-horn console style games on to a handheld.

    I'm not disputing that there are some truly excellent and innovative titles on the PSP, but it has been a case of too little, too late.

    Furthermore, with the switch to digital distribution on the PSP Go, has resulted in Sony painting themselves into a corner. PSP Store has too few titles, with slow release of new software and high prices compared to high street (or the App Store for Minis).

    I really hope that Sony surprises us and proves my concerns unfounded. As I said above - just give is a handheld PS2 with access to the entire library of games (better still the ability to rip them from the original discs). It would prove to be relatively inexpensive and would already have a huge number of superb games.

    Not gonna happen though...

    Part of me would like them to make some wonder machine. Form factor of a Go but with a 2nd nub where "start/select" is, make it touchscreen, phone, nice storage, camera of decent quality. Literally the all in one wonder machine... transcending being a portable games console into a portable everything machine.

    Doubt it'd happen though. Too expensive, too risky.

    One thing I wonder about being a portable PS2... somewhere R/L2 needs to be factored into the equation. No idea where to stick them.

    Firstly start with a top down view of a PS3 controller and keep the placement of those controls the same. Then add a screen. Job done.

    Mentioned it elsewhere but don't think Sony should make a new portable machine right now, rather see them put everything they've got behind the PS3 and let Apple and Nintendo duke it out on the portable market.

    Why? After all the PSP is a profitable machine its just that the software aint selling well, but thats probably due to piracy.

    If you just leave it to Apple and Nintendo the technologies of handheld gaming wont progress quick enough.
  • Deleted user 17 November 2009 16:13:58
    But has it really carved out a space and identity for itself that couldn't be done by either Apple or Nintendo? I don't think Sony can make a handheld just for Japan, market isn't big enough anymore.

    What progress does the technology need, why does it need to be quick, Nintendo have shown it doesn't need to be, and the recession has thankfully slowed this destructive arms race. PSP can do all sorts, online, blue tooth yet some like ad hoc don't seem to take hold in the West as it does in Japan.

    I did add a caveat in my previous post (October NPD thread I think) that if Sony had a bright new design and idea, it is worth a shot but learning from mistakes with the PSP and putting out a new more powerful that cannot be pirated as easily, I dunno - of course things change very quickly as it did with Apple turning up.

    Personally reckon that getting the PS3 to last and have more exclusive content is the aim of the game. I also figure the next Nintendo handheld will be able to run existing Monster Hunter assests and other games currently considered PSP material.

    While I agree that Sony should put some serious thought into their strategy with the eventual PSP2, I don't necessarily think that they should hold off from launching it.

    The success of the Wii has proven that shinier graphics and bigger bangs alone are not enough to drive the take up of new (expensive) hardware. The enlarged gaming community, of which we EG'ers occupy a small piece of, will be expecting some innovation, which so far, Sony have shown no signs of offering.

    It'll be unveiled at E3, sure, but somehow I doubt it'll come out this year. Not in Europe, anyway.

    Dunno, I suppose it depends on just what they've bundled into it. If it's just a slightly faster PSP with an extra stick then it could be feasible to launch it very quickly. I guess it'll also depend on whether they want to beat the 3DS to market or not.
