Hot on the heels of all the Playstation Phone news coming out about a week ago there has finally been lots of chatter about the proper PSP2 at Gamescom.Apparently like with the PSP Phone, special VIP's have seen a working prototype of the next proper successor and according to the media Sony are not taking any chances and want to keep a hold on the portable gaming market. To do this they need to come up with something cutting edge and also better than the 3DS which is having tons of hype at the moment. It is rumoured that the PSP2 will not surface in more detail till the 3DS has come out and all the frenzy has died down (they dont want to compete just yet!). The main info that has been gathered so far includes, - A smaller portable version of the cell processor with 4 cores, most likely to unify development between it and the PS3. Makes devs creating a game on both formats much easier to port. - A rear facing touch panel, described by those who have seen it to being similar to the Motorola Backflip's unique touch pad. What its used for is unknown but it likely to be Sony's attempt at motion control, similar to the DS's touch system. - 3G connectivity and dual facing cameras, basically this might be what the iPad / future Touch 4G is to the iPhone. So it wont make calls but have wireless functionality for online gaming, video calling etc. - 'A rich and detailed screen' is the other comment, it could mean something like Apple's rentina display level of pixel clarity. Thats all that is known for now, Sony wanting to wait till after the 3DS might mean that they are planning the PSP2 to be 3D but want to see how Nintendo's attempt pans out. All the sources are around the web, just look up the latest news for PSP. Robin.
