Rumor: PSP2 to appear as early as 2010

In the February 09 issue of Official PlayStation Magazine (Killzone 2 review cover), a few old rumors are revived including talk of the PlayStation Portable 2, and a PSP port of Evolution Studios’ MotorStorm.
In addition, the publication also mentions a couple of new rumors, including talk of F.E.A.R. 3 and E3 09 playing host to a big MMO announcement from Square Enix.
Here are some of OPM's rumors:
- First PSP2 games are in development and will appear as early as 2010
- Square Enix is to announce a new MMO at this year's E3 09
- The PSP version of MotorStorm is likely to hit later this year
- F.E.A.R. 3 is already underway
- LEGO Harry Potter is in development
If there are PSP2 games already in the works and the new platform is to release as early as 2010, we should expect an announcement from Sony sometime this year, hopefully at E3.

I'll get it if it has two nubs. Also the PSP always make my hands hurt after a while...so if they make it more comfortable that would be a plus too.

I'm really not interested in PSP, i bought one a few months ago and have only used it a few times, got my PS3 for gaming, never need gaming on the move in my opinion. So anyone in uk wanna buy it off me let me know. lol

wats wrong with adding a touchscreen ability?
i would more than welcome it, i probably wont use it but if it has the ability to raise and add more users than let it have it.

i'm curious to see this new PSP2 if the rumors are legit. *crosses fingers for either touch screen or dual nubs, or both."
- 7:47am EST - January 21st, 2009
...and hopefully with two analog nubs.

psn id: gingo... these are only rumours and very few of these are ever true but i can see sony releasing a psp2 at some point

I hought Sony DENIED these rumors, just like everything else they denied and ended up showing up a few weeks later! Lesson learned - everytime Sony denies a rumor, believe the opposite!!

i'll buy psp2 if the make metal gear solid games on it. MGS2 and MGS3, and psosibly MGS 1 remade?? c'mon. i think it will be cool if you can watch dvds on it. or are they still going with the umds probably. lol still i'll be waiting for it.
- 10:06am EST - January 21st, 2009
they wont make it with a dvd drive!! & i,d be surprised if they stuck with umd. just rip ur film collection onto memory stick. will they put a hard drive or flash memory? thats what i want to know
- 10:10am EST - January 21st, 2009
Im sure it will be touch screen since everybody now-a-days is jocking the iPhone.
- 10:37am EST - January 21st, 2009
Sony will most likely deny this again but im 99.9% sure there making the psp2, i hope it has in internal harddrive
- 11:18am EST - January 21st, 2009
all i want is 2 anolog sticks, 4 shoulder buttons, and a full ps2 emulator. I think they need to go the way of the iphone and include a large amount of flash memory, like 32gb at least, and then just do everything digital distrubution. that way they wont loose money from used game sales.

The PSP2 should fix a lot of things wrong with the PSP right now and add more features as well. The next PSP should include...
*Two Analog Nubs: It has always been weird playing games with only one analog nub on the PSP, especially First-Person Shooters.
*Friends List: Much like the PS3, the next PSP should integrate a friend's list function so that you can see what your friends are playing and so that the PSP could also be a more social tool.
*Trophy Support: Trophy Support can certainly help make a decision of what game to buy. Plus, you can connect it to your PSN account via la internet.
*Sixaxis Tilt?: While it wouldn't be necessary, it would be nice to have a tilt function like the SixAxix of the PS3 controller, that way it really could feel like you were playing your PS3 on the go. Plus, it could have some cool features in games.
*NO Touchscreen: The next PSP should NOT feature touch screen so that useless shovelware can stay off the PSP. Plus, most people already own either an IPhone/IPod Touch or a DS.
*R2/L2: The more buttons on the PSP, the better (as long as it doesnt have TOO much buttons).
*Internal Harddrive: Sure, Memory sticks are cheap now, but with an internal harddrive there would be no need to buy one, right? Right?
*Stick with the UMD (or new format): As long as it's not solely downloadable off the PSStore as some people were hoping for. Some people like having a tangible copy of the game right in their hands (like me). Plus how would downloading a game make it any less difficult to pirate?
