The rumor mill has been running overtime this week with information on what the PSP2 will contain. One of the more convincing rumors has revealed some interesting information from a supposed “inside source”. According to this source, the PSP2 will be called “PSP Go!”, in line with the range of services already offered on the PSP ( Go!Cam, Go!Explore etc). More details on the new PSP model should be revealed at E3 in June, and the new model is expected to launch towards the end of this year.
The PSP Go! will have a slide-out screen (which covers the controls when closed). The PSP Go! will contain only one analogue joystick and one d-pad. There will be no UMD disc drive but it will come in two iterations of 8GB and 16GB built-in flash memory. There’ll be 100 classic titles available for download at launch, including Gran Turismo. Whether any of this information is true is for you to decide. But until Sony confirms the above information, we remain skeptical.
