Rumor: PSP2 Officially Revealed In Two Weeks In Tokyo
Sony has plenty of trouble keeping big secrets and by now, it won't come as any huge shock.
Still, if the official unveiling really does happen this month, that's probably earlier than most anticipated. According to MCV, inside sources have confirmed that the PSP2 will be announced at a press event in Tokyo on January 27. That's only a few weeks away and although we had expected Sony to save such a big reveal for GDC or E3, it appears they want to get the hype ball rolling. We may finally have the design and specs directly in front of our greedy eyes, and maybe they'll even announce a few launch titles to go along with the new hardware. Of course, the most important details will be date and price: if it is revealed on January 27, will we really have to wait until the holidays...? As for price, they can't go too loopy; a $300 handheld unit is going to turn off a great many consumers. The original PSP launched at $250 and that proved to be a barrier for quite some time, and let's not forget that the PS3 is $300 these days.
Well, anyway, we're actually getting a little tired of all the rumors and speculation. We honestly hope it does end in a few weeks.
