Sony may have been outsold by Nintendo in the handheld market at a ratio of 4-1, but they haven’t given up on the PSP. 1up has got the morning’s rumor mill turning, alleging that Sony will be debuting the new UMD-less PSP 2, dubbed PSP Go! at this years E3 (June 2-4). They better not be playin’ with us either because the supposed features of the Go! easily put the DSi to shame.
We’re talking about:
+ Touch screen functionality
+ A wider screen w/ controls sliding from the rear (or underneath the screen)
+ No UMDs, but downloadable games and other mobile apps.
+ 8-16 gb of internal storage
+ A camera
– Still only one joystick
Scratch that, i guess “put to shame” was the wrong way to describe it, it literally is a DSi with a SSD.
With an announcement at E3 set and a stateside launch expected around October-November, all the concept models and fan created hoax’s floating around the web will probably dry up. But that dosent mean we can’t take a look back at some of the best of them.
The PSP Sidekick?
Probably the Most Believable Concept
The PSP Dual Screen
