OLED is stupidly expensive to produce.  Sony shut down their then-current OLED TV development a year ago because it wasn't fruitful at that scale.  Applying it to handhelds would just be salvaging whatever money-bleeding tech was lying around.

Since I had no idea what an OLED screen is I just looked it up.  My reaction simply was "who cares?"

I can't imagine more then ten people on the internet atually giving a ****.  The advantages it would give me over the other options are almost nonexistant.  Not only that but its going to look like its behind the times when the competition has had 3d screens out for a year already.  Sony must be praying that 3d has serious problems because this seems crazy.

I'm calling fake, only because it doesn't say "Sony" or "PSP2" on the top part.  There's no way Sony would let that happen.

IF the first cellphone pic we saw was actually the PSP2, then I would have to say that the pic above has to be a fake unless they revisioned the hardware again. It looks like someone just photoshopped the PS/Xperia Play Phone.


But some frnch site claims to have the specs of the PSP2 taken from a dev kit

Information obtained by 01net. based on a development kit for the PSP 2 (formerly code-named: VETA), also called a PSP2 Debug. This material is given by Sony for certain game development studio called to work on titles for this new platform. Therefore, some elements may change slightly when released on the final business model. This should be the case for example of the appearance, or, to a lesser extent, certain technical characteristics.

But while some details will change, these first reports give a clear idea of what should look like the PSP 2 in store. A commercial version to be released at the end of the year, quite likely in November from the information provided by Sony and deadlines set for developers to complete their games.

Are they going to attach a car battery in a backpack to that? Because I have no idea how the hell your suppose to power that much gear for a reasonable amount of time without making it more battery than machine. Where is all the heat going? Maybe it does toast too.

Remember that rumor a wile back about how Sony had originally mad ethe PSP2 a slider design but supposedly reconsidered because that design caused too much overheating?

if those are the compononets inside the machine (some of which were rumored a long time ago), then I see why they would go back to the original PSP design.

Rumor has it that once your PSP2 has been registered to you online, when you whistle, no matter where it is, it will fly to you at high speeds.

I don't know how previous Sony/Ericsson phones have been, but since this is still Sony, I'm just glad they have seemingly abandoned MemSticks and supported the MicroSD standard.

I was reading about this on Ars Technica and someone pointed out:

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play = S.E.X. Play

Nice, Sony. Classy.

Their phones started supporting both Memory Stick and microSD in late 2007 with the k850 series.

looking at the pics again, is that a memstick behind the SD card?

When will they just give it up entirely? isn't Sony the only one left supporting that format?
They should have killed it a long time ago and then resurrected it as the game media format for the PSP brand.

The PSP 2 will use a cartridge instead of a UMD and the PS store will be more robut to accomodate backwards compatibility.

Well, there's a surprise and a smart move by Sony! "PlayStation Suite" will allow developers to make PS games and sell them across Android devices in the PlayStation Store. Sony seems to be taking an "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!" approach to the threat of smart phone gaming.
