    psp Sony dismisses next-gen PSP talk

    News from Gamesindustry

    Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, a Sony spokesperson has dismissed rumours that a new version of the PSP is currently in development.

    The rumours emerged following the appearance an article in the US version of PSM magazine, excerpts of which were widely reported (and in some cases misreported) online.

    The article predicts the arrival of a new version of the PSP in March, claiming that developers have already "been briefed on Sony's plans". It goes on to say that according to "sources familiar with its development", the new PSP will be "thinner and lighter" than the original model.

    But a Sony spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz: "We currently have no plans to release another version of the PSP."

    However, the spokesperson did confirm that the new add-ons for the handheld will be a highlight of Sony's line-up at the Tokyo Game Show later this month, stating, "The camera and GPS peripherals will be the main attraction, and a total of 16 titles will be showcased to demonstrate the strong line-up of software that will be released towards the year." These will include GPS-compatible titles such as Everybody's Golf Course and Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops.

    As previously announced, more than 25 PS3 games will be playable at the event, and videos of a further 35 will also be shown. "Of those 35, some will be newly announced titles, and some will be updates of software announced or shown at E3," the spokesperson said.

    Default too much hype

    i hope it is now obvious to sony how bad the puplic wants a new psp with 2 analog sticks and a built in 8gb flash...

    who know though, the could just want to keep it a secrect, so they can sell left over psp stock. what else are they supose to do with all that left over stock if everyone is waiting for psp improved?

    True enough, but everyone will be Pi$$ed about having to replace a handheld barely 18 months after buying.

    I have only had my PSP for about 7 months and only 1 1/2 months of homebrew goodness the only way im gnna buy a new psp is if theyhave better proccesors and gpu's then maybe better consoles could be emulated but if its just a remake ill stick to my 1.5.

    that would be a wastee for the homebrew community because to wont be able to downgrade someone should make a custom analog stick
