SCEA's senior marketing manger, John Koller, spoke with MTV News today about the future of the PSP.
The portable Sony device could soon tout GPS, a camera, and even have functionality with PlayStation Network titles. While the comments about the new PSP camera and GPS were described as being “tweaked” for the US market, high hopes are still being held for this Holiday season. When asked about Home, Koller said, "Intuitively, if you take the PSP with you, you would want to take some of Home with you," which might be the first ringing endorsement for the remote play functionality of the PlayStation 3.
While this is not set in stone, he did go on to say that overcoming lag-delay is thier big issure right now. So bet your bottom dollar Home will take a front seat Leipzig this year with comments like these and the closed beta coming to an end.
Although there was no TV tuner announced, gamers could see original PlayStation Network games as early as 2008.
During the interview it was also revealed that the slim version of the PSP almost had a second analog nub, but the Sony office axed that idea relatively quickly. In all actuality, Koller said that the PSP has a multitude of hardware revisions ready for implementation, but no further comments were given.
Lastly, Koller spoke on the RSS functionality of the new slim PSP. This is perfect for those of us that might want to chat about a certain game related topic, the most current event, or even surf your favorite PlayStation news site (wink! wink!).
All in all, it seems like the future of the PSP is a bright one. Stick with PSU for future updates and more information on the PSP and PSP slim.

i wish they would just put a second analog nub on psp

They should have really put a 2nd analog on the PSP has this would have greatly inproved how you play games. The other feautures sound real cool. The PSP just keeps getting better and better.

psn id: gingo... i think they should have put a second analog nub on it but since they didn't these other features make up for it

I would love another analog nub on my PSP, especially for God of War: CoO, but I'd hate to see it get used only half the time because of older games using 1 nub. It'd probably get frustrating. I think GPS can be used if the PSP is hacked. Can't wait for the camera or the PSP-N store. But I'm glad they realized the huge lag between the PSP and PS3. 3 feet from my PS3 and the trailers were freezing. ANd HOME would be so fscking awesome to use on the PSP.

What they need to do is fix the power button. I cant even count how many times I have turned it off while playing games.

- 3:22pm EDT - August 7th, 2007
put on a 2nd nub and ill buy one -_-
- 3:43pm EDT - August 7th, 2007
Then I guess you;ll never have one. a second analog nub, as InfernoReaper already explained, would be useless because you can use it for the dozens of PSP games already in existance and then any games that comeout using it later would be impossible to use on older PSPs of which there are far more than the new model and it'd be that way for many years which makes it generally pointless. So STOP ASKING FOR A SECOND ANALOG NUB! it's just not feasible... Maybe for the PSP2.
