Rumors of a PSP 2 Reemerge

This is possible, but even if so, probably wouldn’t happen anytime soon.  I am sure that these companies are always working on new hardware.  Anything being worked on right now may not ever even make it into a final design for Sony’s next handheld.  Given that it is only a rumor, there is really nothing to worry about, because it can mean one of two things.

1) The rumor is false, you can hang on to your 3000s or plan on getting the Go.

2) It’s true, but we won’t see it for several years, so it doesn’t matter much anyway at this point.

The tech is probably constantly being worked on either way.

Will the PS3 Slim Happen Soon?

It seems that at this point, everyone is ready for Sony Computer Entertainment to announce the new slim line PS3.  I talked a few posts back about how I think Sony needs to do something to get back in the game.  Hopefully this is part of it.

According to the NPD numbers, SCEA has a long way to go before it catches up to its competition.  The good news for Sony is that there are still a lot of people out there who don’t have a PS3.  At a cool $250 or less. (Both of which I doubt they want to do seeing as how their handheld would then cost as much as their console–or more.)

I have some friends that are already a bit ticked off, saying that they hope it doesn’t cost less than the ones they bought.  I hope it costs MUCH less than the one I bought for $400.  I want it to cost half that much.  I have to look at the big picture.  What would it mean?  More PS3s in homes and more support! That means my investment may actually be worth something.

I’m just not sure Sony gets it right now.

More Not-so-Good News for the PS3

Man, I really love my PS3, but Sony just doesn’t seem to be having any kind of luck this generation. Resistance: Fall of Man (Yeah, that’s Resistance part 1) is right now the only Sony published PS3 game to have sold over 1 million in the US.  That’s according to NPD data, and while not totally accurate, it is the closest representation of sales we have.  It’s also, consequently, the only number that publishers and media here in the states tend to care about, so yes, it does matter.

Those numbers were calculated as of April of this year, so that means that the game is almost three years old (it was released November of 2006) and being a greatest hit (with the $30 price tag) for almost a year at this point.

I hope Sony has some major plans for their console…they need the support.
