    Hmm.

    In any case, it's nice to know that someone is interested in pushing the tech boundaries.

    P.S. When the fuck is 'Fall 2011'?

    Fucking Americans.

    Fall is autumn i believe which "falls" on our spring.

    I really liked the original PSP but the lack of games that interested me made me let it go.

    Looking forward to the PSP2 if it can serve as a netbook gaming device.

    hmm the PSP was horrible as far as being a gaming platform goes. The console itself was great, it looks really good and the big screen was a welcome addition. As far as hardware goes its good, but i have not bought more than about 3 games for mine. There just isn't anything worth paying for on it imo. Without home brew i would've chucked it out and got a DS

    If Sony can actually get some decent game devs to make something for the PSP2 it would be awesome.

    From what ive seen of the 3ds Sony will really need to make sure the PSP2 is fairly amazing to compete, now Nintendo has some decent graphics and the usual great line up of games. PS2 game compatibility would be awesome.

    Dont like the sound of the gimmicky touch crap.

    This is a leaked photo of a Sony Prototype apparently, I hope it's not the PSP2.

    Thats obviously a phone but, if the psp2 were to look anything like that..

    1. Its similar to the psp go or what ever.
    2. Looks unergonomic, I would prefer the start and select buttons to be where that s is

    It had better be, or else they will be absolutely smashed (again) by Nintendo and the 3DS.

    Would you guys classify the ipod touch as a gaming console, I really think its up to scatch when comparing these two makers.

    God no. Touched based gaming is horrific and will never work for the types of games the PSP/DS have. If they somehow could work, like with a slide out gamepad then yes. Mushing your fingers all over the screen is crap and gets in the way.

    iphone is more capable than DS / 3DS, more cpu, ram and vram. only really lacking in pixel shaders.

    psp2 makes the 3ds look like, well, exactly what it is, a slightly overpowered DS :)

    Which won't mean a thing, just like with the PSP, if they don't secure some amazing games to use that tech. If they come in weak, the 3DS will smash it.

    Well, the 3DS will destroy the PSP2 in sales regardless because of the screen, but having some good games on the PSP2 will certainly help it. I burned through the good PSP games in a month and then sold it due to the lack of anything good coming out.

    sure, but PSP did extremely well in its own right, 40 million units...not bad for a first effort.

    essentially all 3 platforms can stand up on thier own. psp for more adult games, ds for more casual and younger audience games, and iphone for ultra small games (that will change eventually, but as everyone has pointed out, no physical controls is limiting it)

    I second this, let me play my ps2 games on the psp2 and I'll buy one early until the must-haves come out.
