PSP/PS3/PStwo Tidbits

  Last month, David Reevers, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Chief Operation Officer, gave a very informative interview to the Official European Playstation site.

   Reevers stated that he was "pretty confident" the PSP would make its debut in 2004, thought it is uncertain which region this date is for. Sony Computer of America has previously stated that the PSP wouldn't be available in the US until early 2005.

   While discussing the UMD format, Reevers suggested that the games may not be region coded. He also went on to stress the upgradeable functionality of the PSP (such as GPS).

   The most encouraging tidbit is that Sony has upgraded the amount of RAM in the PSP, from 8 MB to 30 MB, with Reevers citing developer's concerns as the primary reason. He went on to mention that the PSP "will look better than the PS2," and reiterated that it will be shown this May at E3.

   On the topic of Playstation 3, Reevers discussed the possibility of multiple versions of the machine. "There might be a normal PS3 for gamers who just want to play the movies and have better games. So you might see two versions. One is a home server; the other is for someone who can't afford whatever it might be--600 or 700 euros --and wants just to pay 200 euros for a new-generation games machine."

   Reevers went on to drop hints that they may "make some cosmetic changes to the PlayStation 2 and come out with something that's a little bit sexier." This would correspond with Sony's trademark registration of "PStwo" a few months back.
