Sony PSVITA Discussion

More and more "rumors" and leaked information is coming out about Sony's PSP successor.

And it sure sounds like it is going to be a beast, as well as have all the options gamers have been wanting in the next PSP.

Several sources have confirmed to Kotaku that the PSP2 does have a previously rumored touch panel on the back of the hardware. The touch panel was described as looking like a big mouse trackpad. When Sony showed the PSP2, it did not provide concrete details regarding how the trackpad will be implemented in games and instead is leaving that to the discretion of game developers.

Sources also confirm to Kotaku that the handheld will have dual analog sticks. Sony's game controllers traditionally have dual analog sticks, but the current PSP model does not. Dual analog sticks would bring the PSP controls more in line with what gamers experience on Sony's home consoles.

Sony's PSPgo is UMD-free version of the PSP, and sources tell Kotaku that the PSP2 will follow in the footsteps of that portable. Games will be stored on a Memory Stick, according to one source. Though we've also been told that Sony is still puzzling out what the final non-UMD storage solution will be for the PSP2.

We've also learned that the PSP2 will be a much more powerful gaming device with twice the RAM of the Xbox 360.

While we don't yet know all of the portable's system specifications, we have been told that the PSP2 will feature 1 GB of RAM. That's compared to the 64 MB of RAM the PSPgo and PSP 3000 have. Both of those portables use a MIPS R4000 CPU clocked at up to 333 MHz. By comparison the Xbox 360 has 512 MB of RAM and runs a 3.2 GHZ CPU.

Here are some dev kit images!

“Boom.”

VG247 has obtained the world’s first images of a PSP2 dev kit.

The shots clearly show the device’s forward- and rear-facing cameras, as well as the much-discussed trackpad on the rear of the unit.

Note that this isn’t the console’s final form factor. As you can see, some developers are working with a kit with similar construction to a PSP go at the moment – see the update below – with a sliding screen over physical controls. We don’t know when the final physical spec will be nailed down, only that this isn’t it.

We were first told PSP2 kits were in developers’ hands early this year.

It has an HD screen. The last set of rumours surrounding the handheld said the chipset has yet to be finalised.

The machine is rumoured to be extremely powerful, with approximately twice as much RAM as a 360.

EA has confirmed it’s had “exposure” to the unit, and developer Netherrealm has openly admitted it’s working with a kit.

PSP2 is supposedly heading for release in late 2011.

If you’re in any doubt as to the authenticity of these images, don’t be. It is what it is. Enjoy.

Update: We’ve been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There’s a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block. Remember those last Kotaku rumours of the unit overheating? Sony switched back a form like PSP-1000 in order to cool it down.

What exactly does having 1 GB of RAM mean in terms of graphical fidelity?

Probably more head room for textures and being able to allocate more to that department, as well as sound, physics, etc.

I have a gut feeling the processor(s) will be cell based as well. Considering Sony has been using it in multiple entertainment products now (TVs, Blu-Ray players, receivers, etc). Also they have been manufacturing them for so long, the yields have produced smaller form factors and lower power consumption.

I agree. I wished they kept the UMD but I do like the dual analog sticks but the priced is gonna be iffy.

Re: PSP2 Information Emerging

I'm excited that there is no UMD. Sony made a mistake with the PSP-GO, splitting your userbase is never a good idea. So they created a new one this time, perfect.

Re: PSP2 Information Emerging

I don't think $250 would be too much to ask, especially if this thing will be as powerful as advertised. Either way, this definitely sounds interesting... now let's see if these rumors hold true, and what the game lineup could look like.

Agreed. Nintendo is releasing the 3DS in Japan for $300 and people speculate $250 in the states.

So I would not be surprised if this was around that price as well.
