Sony mocks IGN's PSP2 rumors

  • Posted January 27th, 2009 at 15:54 EDT by

Earlier today, we reported on IGN's rumor that Sony certainly has the next PlayStation Portable handheld device in the works. In response, Sony has humorously commented on IGN's rumors in an email exchange with MCV. It goes without saying that large corporations, such as Sony, usually stick to the "no comment" stance with any and all rumors and speculation. This time, however, they're taking their gloves off a tad.

"Clearly, being a quiet time of year, many, what we thought to be credible websites, are making up stories about PSP2, and how it allows you to teleport across the globe, travel through time, and will be powered by the horns of baby rhinoceroses," MCV's source 'close to Sony' explained. "Hopefully, you can sense a mild tone of sarcasm, which should hopefully indicate how 'on the money' IGN are. Needless to say, we don't comment on rumour or speculation, but this is nonsense."

Only one side of this story can be right. While it would be fantastic to get our hands on a time-traveling PSP2 powered by rhinoceroses horns, we might not see that until PSP3. Let's see how things play out.
