Posted on September 27, 2010, Phil Owen Whispers Say Sony Sending Out PSP2 Dev Kits
Develop is reporting that Sony is sending out dev kits to a bunch of “key studios” so as to make it so they have a pile of high-profile launch titles for the thing. The whispers won’t give any details on the handheld other than to say that it is a thing, and none of them would speak on the record, and so for all we know they just talked to some low-level nobodies throwing out wild speculation. But I ain’t gonna throw my peers under the bus like that. I will say, however, that this clearly counts are rumor and/or speculation.
This means our most solid lead on the PSP2 so far is Mortal Kombat producer Shaun Himmerick speaking out on it a weak and a half ago. I think I might believe that guy.
Most importantly of all, though, I’m glad I found a good picture to go with rumor and speculation stories. It’s been a good night; the Brave won, the Padres lost and I found that picture.
