Sony repeats it has "no plans" for PSP2

Sources still say otherwise.

Sony has reiterated that "no plans for a PSP2 are underway" in an interview with Silicon Valley Insider.

The website reports that hardware marketing director John Koller described the PSP2 rumour as "completely unfounded", although it reported the words rather than attributing them to Koller, preferring to go with the blanket Sony "no plans" for a comment.

Koller apparently said our report that Sony intends to introduce a PSP-4000 in 2009 and a PSP2 at a later date is a misinterpretation of the platform holder's push to move away from UMD towards digital distribution.

However, he did not rule out a PSP-4000 in 2009, and our sources are adamant that Sony has specifically discussed both products with them, and that games are in development for a PSP successor, as we reported on Tuesday.

When that machine will be released is unknown, but it stands to reason that Sony would distance itself from any talk of a PSP2 while the current PSP is on the market in the Christmas period.
