PSP2 dev kits widely released - Report

Sony prepping for "significant launch window lineup" for second portable, according to online reports. 
Each month since the NPD Group ceased tracking PlayStation 2 figures, the PSP has been dead last in the industry-research group's monthly hardware rankings.

  1. I guess it IS about time for a new handheld from Sony. Hopefully they've learned from their mistakes with the PSP. Its library has been improving lately, so hopefully that bodes well for the next generation.

  2. I love my PSP but it's not the same compared to today's newer gadgets. Function and performance should be at the top of their list. I'd like them to aim for a sleek but sturdy design. Also, something that's elite gamer worthy and still possible for kids to enjoy could help them out. Like with customizable features. Kinda like an iphone but NO. Then it'd also be cheaper because those features wouldn't be included with the system and you'd have choices on what you wanted on there. And it'd be cool if the menu would spin or something clever. Come on SONY! Let me believe!!!
