3D PSP not on the horizon according to Sony

Nintendo hold strong in portable 3D gaming Monopoly championship

Sony has denied rumours suggesting it was to launch a 3D version of the PSP in response to the arrival of portable 3D gaming saying: “It’s just not something we’re announcing right now.”

Following the announcement of the Nintendo 3DS at E3 earlier this month, rumour and speculation has been rife that Sony was to jump on the latest 3D bandwagon.

The Japanese company has remained adamant however that it is to concentrate solely on 3D gaming for static, home entertainment games consoles rather than their smaller, portable brethren.

Speaking on the topic, Scott Rohde, Sony Worldwide Studios vice president, said: “No, no plans for that. We just chose to focus on the big 3D in the home. It's important to us to push that out there and be on the bleeding edge of it.”

The Nintendo 3DS which is the first portable games console to tout glasses-free 3D gaming is expected to receive a post New Years launch, missing out on the Christmas rush but starting a new era in the gaming market.
