PSP2 Could Be Officially Announced at E3, Long-awaited PlayStation Portable Successor

May 13, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The successor to the PlayStation Portable (PSP), the PSP2 could be announced by its maker Sony at the upcoming E3 event in June. Rumors had earlier suggested that there was the possibility of the PSP2 being rolled out. We have been hearing something on those lines ever since the Nintendo’s DS Lite was launched. Now these rumors are being confirmed by a Sony executive.

Features such as a better screen, quicker loading, improved buttons and a camera integrated in the device ar expected to be added in the PSP2.

The PSP has over 250 games, most of them highly rated. The PSP2 is expected by PSP fans to have more games and an on-board flash memory of up to 8GB as well. The device is also rumored to have a touchscreen and use an AMD as well.

The PSP has been in the market for over six years. Though the device has undergone many revisions, most of its features have not changed since it was first launched.

The E3 event, to get underway this June, will also witness the announcement of Nintendo’s new gaming device, the 3DS. The announcement of the PSP2 at E3, if any, will reveal Sony’s strategy to take on Nintendo and its new product.
