There has been a lot of talk recently on the next Psp coming out, whether you want to call it the PSP2 or the Psp-4000. Earliest rumors I reemember coming from IGN. It sounds like it’s going to be a pretty big change, they’re going for a very slim system this time around. Here’s what David Perry, an Acclaim developer, had to say on his Facebook and Twitter accounts:
“I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they’ve removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I’m excited!”
Sounds like a pretty big change, rumors say that they’re going for a completely digital approach. Requiring users to purchase games through a virtual service. Also, Eurogamer is also saying that the UMD has been removed and now has a slideable screen. The screen is basically the same as the old one, except slideable and doesn’t cover the whole console. Sony says they aren’t going to comment on any rumors, though.
This rumored PSP2 is said to be released later this year.
