Tomorrow, January 27 in the world is expected to officially welcome the first time in PSP2 to a showcase event in Tokyo. Revealing the real thing on the horizon, we look back, what do we know about the hand.
Or, more precisely, what we think we know.
The Sony PSP2 expected to be revealed as part of the presentation will be held in Japan in time 15:00, 27 January We'll be live blogging the whole event, so you and us that these rumors to bed a little cold, hard facts.
For Americans to 01:00 Eastern on January 27 and January 26 22:00 Pacific Time. For the Europeans to Berlin on January 27 07:00 and 06:00 London.
In the meantime, here's what I (think) we know the things I was told directly by the developers and / or other staff directly concerned with:
- The PSP2 dual analog sticks
- Includes a touch-sensitive panel on the back of the unit
- Do you have a larger screen than the current PSP
- Two models of the Sony PSP2 development, one of the "sliding" open like a phone, the other is "smooth" means, as the current PSP. It is unknown which of the two will be unveiled later this week.
More things you have said here, the people closely involved with the manual:
- The current PSP UMD drive is gone.
- This is a powerful tool, which in some ways rivals the capabilities of the contemporary home consoles
Here is what I heard, the Nikkei, the highly respected Japanese business source:
- The PSP2 is a big fancy OLED display
- It features 3G connectivity, which allows you to connect to cellular data networks
Here are some of the allegedly secret recordings PSP2, demonstrating its dual touch screen and rear thumbsticks. Because these shots looked like a hell of a hangover and an artist was commissioned by the magazine PSM3 is easier to turn them into something a little bit of the eye (pictured up top).
Earlier this week, a shot was allegedly appeared in a promo picture of the final PSP2 design. Some parts looked fake, the rest seemed true. Guess we'll find out what were to later this week!
In 2009, gaming site IGN claimed that the PSP2 will feature a touch input, something about the Nikkei report also states this month.
Back in 2008, Sony filed a patent application for a handheld device that has multiple touch inputs, and said he would have a tech toy applications.
In 2007, they said, a lot of things about the PSP2, some of which are still spoken, since (touch-screen, screen updates) and some of which (the E3 2007 will reveal), the ... no.
