We have more details on another of Sony’s best kept secrets now, as it has been reported that developers are already in possession of PSP2 dev-kits and are starting to build titles for the company’s launch lineup.
According to this report from Develop, studios have seen the device close at hand, and while they are keeping its design a secret from the media, reports are slipping out that Sony is now starting to assemble a collection of titles which will be launched with their new handheld system.
The key studios haven’t been specifically named, but you can bet that it includes all the big guns in the industry. You may remember comments from NetherRealm Studios (Mortal Kombat 9), where they publicly stated that they were in possession of a PSP2 running at 60FPS.
Develop adds that the release of the PSP2 is now likely to coincide with the release of Nintendo’s 3DS, expected sometime next year for the US and EU.
What are your thoughts on the inevitable announcement of the PSP2?
