Not the first time we’ve read the acronym PSP with a delicious “2” appended to get us salivating. We’ve heard it’s a couple of iPhones stuck together and that it has a touch sensitive area behind the screen. We’ve also heard it was at Gamescom and under impenetrable security.
So it’s a little surprising to hear that Mortal Kombat developer Netherrealm Studios are claiming they have one, it’s powerful, and when it comes to Mortal Kombat launching on it, it’s possible. Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick stated to IndustryGamers:
“We’re not launching day one on all consoles like that. We are looking at them; we have a PSP2 in the house and we’re looking at the engine, like what can it support. Always a big thing for us is the performance. We’re running at 60 fps, what can we do and do we have to build all the art assets over. We’re definitely looking at them. PSP2 looks like it’s a pretty powerful machine. We don’t have a 3DS system in house yet, but we’re looking to get one, and we’ll certainly look at what its power is.”
Insert your own “Finish him/it!” or “Get over here!” joke here.
