We have some interesting details to bring you now, as gaming analyst Michael Pachter has spoken out on the upcoming release of the Sony PSP 2 (or lack of), adding that Sony should copy what Nintendo has done with the 3DS handheld.
When talking in a recent interview with Industry Gamers, Pachter spoke out on his confusion on Sony’s current stance with their PSP platform and wondered if current pricing problems could have affected Sony’s download spiral of PSP sales compared to the DS.
When the PSP2 does come out however, Pachter would like to see Sony incorporate 3D technology with their new handheld as he explains below:
”If the 3DS comes out at $249, the $169 PSP might seem like a bargain. If Sony were really smart, they’d emulate the 3DS and put a 3D screen on the PSP2.”
Considering how seriously Sony are taking 3D gaming on the PS3 with the likes of Killzone 3 and The Last Guardian supporting 3D visuals, a 3D announcement for the PSP2 is certainly not out of the question.
Maybe Patcher has a point for once. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Sony should copy the tech seen in the Nintendo 3DS or come up with something completely different?
