Expect Big PSP Announcements At E3
Sony seems to be gearing up for a major PSP blowout at E3 this year, and one can find the evidence in recent statements made by SCEA executives. They like to talk about the handheld's future, and many are expecting some big announcements come June.
We're all anticipating the unveiling of a new PSP iteration - either the PSP-4000 or the PSP 2, even though Sony continually denies the latter - and we figure the games are definitely flooding our way. PushSquare reminds us that several big titles were revealed in February (Assassin's Creed, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, LittleBigPlanet, etc.), and as we get closer to E3, more game announcements are in the hopper. SCEA's John Koller said:
"There's a lot of announcements coming up to E3 and particularly at E3. There's probably 50-60 percent of the lineup for the year that has not been announced and there's some big titles coming. So there's a lot of excitement on PSP."
We can't wait to see the portable gems that are scheduled to arrive within the next year or so, and there has never been a better time to be a PSP owner. Of course, if you aren't one yet, you may want to wait until E3 to see if a new model will hit store shelves for the holidays. You can better plan out your year, but the bottom line is that Sony is finally starting to push the PSP; they even admitted in the past that it had been "under-supported." Well, no more. Bring on the games!
