PSP2 Announcement on January 27 Question Mark
The PSP2 is happening; at this point we’re just waiting for Sony to make it official. MCV and VG247 both say they have sources who tell them Sony will do just that on January 27 at a “business overview and strategy meeting” in Tokyo.
I won’t speculate as to whether or not this is true, and Sony obviously won’t openly say s–t about it right now either way as they’re still trying to pretend it doesn’t exist. (Aside from leaking this info in order to build hype.) I wonder, though, if it is true, if Sony would use this event to also announce the Playstation Phone. They’d have to, right? When word about it first came out the thought was that it might come out at the end of 2010; obviously that didn’t happen, but nobody would have thought that could be true if the thing weren’t somewhat close to being retail-ready. Meanwhile, nobody is expecting the PSP2 to hit shelves until late this year, so it’d seem odd if they announced that first.
Start the countdown, Sony fanboys. Only 15 days.
