PSM3 Shows Off PSP2 Mock-ups?

HD renditions of fancy or what the real thing will look like?

We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again, whenever we highlight news from a gaming magazine we’re doing so for two simple reasons. One: we want you to know the news in question, naturally. Two: we implore you to actually pick up the magazine and find out more.

What follows are some images found in the latest (we think) edition of PSM3 show-casing what looks like clearer, HD versions of recently seen images of the PSP2.

Are they simply mock-ups? Probably. Will the final product look anything like this? Maybe. If anything you get to comment on whether or not this design is something you think works. Just to be clear: we are not claiming these images represent what the PSP2 categorically, definitely, without doubt looks like. That’s not the purpose of this minor titbit as we emerge from our self-induced turkey-comas. This is just for fun.

Observe, ruminate, and ultimately go back to your mince pies in mystic wonder at the possibility of Santa Sony maybe delivering something as sexy as this next year.

Note: We purposely made the text very hard to read in an effort to encourage you to pick up the magazine.

    I will probably buy this to finally replace my rotting PSP-1000, especially if any good-looking games are announced with it.

    BTW, why do you have TSA News team instead of the author of the piece written at the top?

    Nice renders. Hope Sony are aiming for the real world version of that. I’m not interested in a standalone PSP but will keep my eyes peeled for a PSP Phone if they ever churn one out.

      Me too, but if it is the Xperia Play as opposed to PlayStation Phone I don’t hold out much hope for it. It’s been many years since Sony made a decent phone and the Xperia is particularly shite

    Just L1 & R1???
    Also those face buttons look really… easy to mess up i.e press the X and also O

      The face buttons look cramp-inducing

      I got terrible cramp from the existing PSP and if they’re even closer to the centre then I may find it unusable. I’m sure they’ve done usability & ergonomic research so it will probably be OK

    Looks like an ugly version of the psp go to be honest.

    This looks beautiful……..i want it!

    though i must admit that im surprised they decided to go the download-only route.
    i guess i dont mind as long as the games are amazing (which they should be) but it will take some people more time to get used to this idea.

    oh good a typical Sony fingerprint magnet :|

    Looks sweet actually, dual analogue is obviously a must, as is touch & motion controls.

    Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson from the PSPgo about pricing and if they have it will be a sure fire winner.
