Whispers of a new or revised PSP have been growing decidedly louder as of late, and now 1UP's gotten a ton of new details from what it claims are "sources directly involved with the new system" -- our favorite kind of people, actually. Here's what they were told: UMD is out, replaced instead with options for either 8GB or 16GB of built-in flash memory. Also nixed is any hope of a "PSP-4000," with Sony opting instead to use a subtitle. Three rumored names include PSP Slide, PSP Flip, and PSP Go!, the latter of which borrows from Sony's pre-existing Go! brand and suggests there might be a built-in camera à la PSP-3000's Go!Cam peripheral. The same D-pad, analog nub, and face button configuration remains, but they now slide out from the bottom of the unit (see mockup, pictured). Expected launch is September for Japan and late October / early November for US, and coming with 'em are over 100 classic and new downloadable titles including Gran Turismo Mobile as a headliner. Sony's supposedly going official with all this during its E3 press conference in early June, and for now they're opting to give the staple "does not comment on rumors or speculation" response. That's one mighty intriguing rumor -- we can only hope it pans out.
agreed, doesnt have dual analog..... T.T
srsly WTF was $ony thinking when they decided to push FPS' on to the PSP phat/slim/bright
other than we all know its bull ...
the analog stick is practically on the d pad and theres not 2
and the shoulder buttons on the screen are retarded, whats stopping it from closing down on you while you franticly mash R (and theres not 4 of them)
its more like an artists abortion than an artists rendering of the new psp
Seriously, good concept
Needs a better design and another analog stick, but I'm sure sony is aware of that by now
Why are people commenting on the render?
Because it looks like the artist crapped it out of his dead turtle
I care little about the mockup...what actual new features or beefed up hardware specs will this new system have?
I bet all my money that "if" there's a new psp in the making that the new features are only going to be cosmetic. It will be a redisign kind of like the DSi. I seriously doubt sony will be making changes to the MIPS processor, extra ram or anything of that nature. Of course I totally hope I'm wrong.
