Posted on May 12, 2010, Phil Owen PSP2 Coming Soon? Maybe? No? Yes?

There is some speculation now that a new PSP may be on the way. And that it’s coming as soon as this year. MCV spoke with a handful of sources inside major publishers, and two of them said their companies are gearing up for a major marketing push for the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year, and the sources speculated that the big money is going around because their companies are preparing for a new Sony handheld.
They also have a third source saying his/her company is working on some games for a future device and is holding off on announcing them until Sony announces the new machine. This, then, leads to speculation, by me and everyone else, that if all this is true, and Sony is putting together a new PSP, then E3, which is just a month away, would be the natural place to make the announcement, as it would completely dominate all news out of the expo.
But that’s assuming they are developing a new handheld and are so far into development that it would make folks forget about the PSPgo less than a year after that big release. And those are big assumptions. So file this under hearsay for now.
