Sony PSP2 (Veta): Specs Update – Could Run Uncharted 3?

By Alan Ng - Dec 21, 2010

We have some interesting rumors to share with you now, as it has been reported that the upcoming Sony PSP 2 handheld console will be able to run games such as the recently announced, and graphics powerhouse, Uncharted 3.

We don’t have much to go on here, but according to this brief snippet over at MaxConsole, a few PSP2 details have been published in the Australian edition of GameInformer magazine, in which developers have been talking about the graphical capabilities of the next gen PSP.

According to them, the new machine will be so powerful, that it will be able to run the likes of Uncharted 3. If you watched the first gameplay video for the game, you’ll know that it will already be one of the best looking games of 2011, and to think that the PSP2 may be handle that sort of power – well it seems a bit impossible doesn’t it?

Furthermore, we are also hearing about a potential codename for the PSP2 – ‘Veta’. Again, this isn’t confirmed and we’d like to see proof of this GameInformer issue before we draw any real conclusions on it.

What are your thoughts on these rumors? Do you think the PSP2 could really run graphic-intensive games like Uncharted 3?

    if it is true that the psp2 could even come close to handling uncharted titles 1, 2, or 3, sony will dominate the gaming market. (not that they arent already) but in addition to that playstation will also be releasing a ps phone. another step ahead of xbox. if you think about it we have 4 consoles released in the past 15 years. each one updated in a slimmer sleeker more affordable version. xbox has been around for 11 years and have released 2 consoles. sony is ahead of the game. very ahead of the game. boostiong the console count to 6 in 15 years… wow thats incredible nice try with that kinect by the way… it so kool i want to look like an asshole bouncing a big fake red ball and jumping in the air. really kewl.

    Hoagie, you're right it would be awesome if the PSP2 was as powerful as the ps3 but I'm not sure I agree with you that it will dominate the handheld market. For that to happen the price would have to be right. I don't know about you but I wouldn't shell out another $300 bucks for a PSP after I bought my PS3. If they get the price right and add a lot of multimedia to the PSP2, then I could see it having an effect on Nintendo. I think it would be awesome if you could start Uncharted 3 on the PS3 and then pick up where you left off on the PSP2, then come right back to the PS3. That would be great!

    I think that would be awesome if the psp2 is on par with the ps3.. It would dominate the handheld market if it could reach that much power. I’m excited to hear more about it in the coming months.
