This E3 is shaping up to be the best ever, not only is the new DS making it’s debut but according to gaming trade site MCV, Sony plans to unveil the PSP 2 at this year’s E3. Trade site MCV reports:
We already have a fair idea what to expect at next month’s E3 – plenty of into about Move, Natal and the 3DS (and Vitality Sensor) for instance – but Sony could perhaps be saving the biggest surprise of all.
MCV has been informed of a significant increase in marketing spend at two key publishers for Q4 2010. At a time when the PSP is languishing in Western markets – and its most recent iteration, the PSPgo, is falling flat – it is being speculated that publishers are laying the ground for an offensive on a brand new iteration of Sony’s handheld.
Another publisher has also told MCV that it is waiting on a specific announcement from the platform holder before it can reveal of its future PSP plans until, though it did allude to the ongoing development of several unnamed titles behind closed doors.
This year has seen a wealth of riches for Sony fans, starting with an incredible game line-up and continuing with it’s new motion-sensing controller and announcement of 3D gaming. Will the PSP2 live up to the hype? Will it even show up at E3? Who knows! Rumors are rumors…
Releasing a new PSP might be a necessity for Sony at this point. The longer Sony waits to drum up publicity for it’s new handheld, the longer Nintendo’s new DS will have the spotlight. They also might want to hurry up and release the PSP 2 so everyone can forget about the PSPgo..
For some reason, I see the PSPgo popping up on a lot of “worst portable gaming consoles ever” lists. I don’t think I’m alone on this one.
