Source: A "99% Chance" The PSP2 Will Debut At E3
The PSP2 has been making the rounds recently; that doesn't mean the thing is real, but it certainly means there's more evidence of a possible E3 unveiling.
But there have been so many pieces of information, you might be feeling a tad overwhelmed. Therefore, VG247 has gathered up the available details and furthermore, according to inside sources, the PSP2 will indeed be announced next month at E3. The features? Well, first of all, it'll boast a couple cameras (one in front of the unit and one in back), the oft-rumored touchscreen along with the standard PlayStation button configuration, no physical media like the PSP Go (with the possibility of 3G), and lastly, a 2011 launch date. Oh, and it's supposed to be crazy powerful; the PSP2 will supposedly run on a four-core Cell processor, which sounds pretty darn insane. Now, obviously, the picture here is of a previous mock-up and isn't exactly accurate, which is why we should continue to take all of this with a grain of salt. However, considering the perceived lack of huge software at E3, something like the PSP2 could definitely heat things up... See, we can't have last year's bombshell when 10 minutes of God of War III closed Sony's press conference.
The PSP Go has not succeeded the way Sony has hoped, despite apparently hitting early expectations. The PSP2 might be just the unit to keep everyone involved in Sony's handheld world.
