PSP2 Mock-Up Looks A Lot Like the PSPgo
Either way, we can’t help but think that this handheld looks an awful lot like a PSPgo, which is to Sony what the Virtual Boy is to Nintendo–they seemingly make it a point to pretend it doesn’t exist. On the bright side, the PSPgo has a few more games than you can get on the Virtual Boy, but that’s not saying much for Sony’s download-only handheld.
If you look at the backside of the PSP2, you will notice a little rectangular panel. Supposedly, that is a touch-sensitive slide panel, and we are still trying to figure out how practical a panel facing away from the user will be. We hope we are wrong, but it just seems…off.
Well, at least we can look forward to two thumbsticks, because, personally, I like the PSP nub thingies. Let’s just hope we see some games that pull it off correctly.
Personally, I’d rather see this PS2/TV combo come to the States (So what if the PS2 is an old system, there’s a very good reason it’s the best-selling console in history). Oh well, anything is better than Wahlberg as Nathan Drake. (And my usual disclaimer: I have nothing against Mark Wahlberg, I think he’s cool enough, but he just seems a bit old for the part and doesn’t really look like him.)
