Sony PSP2 confirmed: Devs already working with it

But when will Sony roll out the official news?

After months of speculation and rumour about a possible successor to Sony’s dogged PSP Go, all it took was one loose-lipped developer to lift the lid. Speaking in an interview at PAX 2010, Shaun Himmerick, Executive Producer on the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot, not only revealed that the device existed, but also that his team had one.

“We have a PSP2 in the house,” he insisted, “and we’re looking at the engine, like what can it support. Always a big thing for us is the performance. We’re running at 60 fps, what can we do and do we have to build all the art assets over. We’re definitely looking at them.”

While he wasn’t so bold as to suggest technical specs, Himmerick did suggest that the “PSP2 looks like it’s a pretty powerful machine.”

Whether this talk is a mere publicity stunt, a rouse or real confirmation of the PSP2’s existence remains to be seen, but we’d like to think optimistically. One thing’s for sure: if Himmerick’s telling the truth, he can expect a very strongly worded letter from Sony any time now; the company are staying typically schtum about the new handheld. We’ll bring you more news as we get it.
