Bloomberg Says PSP2 Announcement Next Week, PS Phone Soon After
So Bloomberg is calling the ball: Sony will be announcing the PSP 2 next week and the Playstation Phone (now pretty well considered to be called the Xperia Play) at Mobile World Congress starting Feb. 14 in Barcelona.
The business site is citing a pair of unnamed sources saying that SCE is using its event on Jan. 27 in Tokyo to finally drop the new PSP on us — the one that’s supposed to be comparable in power to the Playstation 3. This is stuff we’ve heard before, but now Bloomberg is saying it. Therefore, you should take note again.
The press conference next week is also supposed to explain a whole plan for networked entertainment for the PSP 2, which could be extended to the Xperia Play as well, that’ll probably be a whole lot like Sony’s CES 2011 presentation. During that keynote, Sony talked about 3D everything and connected entertainment flying through the air all over your house. Expect that kind of mindset when it comes to the new Playstation Portable.
Hopefully we’ll finally be seeing how the supposedly godly new PSP stacks up against Nintendo’s 3DS.
