PSP2 Talk Intensifies, Source Claims Dev Kits Sent To “Numerous” Outlets

While Sony remains tight-lipped on its next-generation portable plans, trade site Develop has it on good authority that PSP2 dev kits have been sent to “numerous” development studios – both third-party and in-house.

Reportedly, Sony is gearing up to make a “big impact” at launch, one supplemented with a wide array of launch titles. Earlier this month, Mortal Kombat’s executive producer Shaun Himmerick lauded the yet-to-be-announced handheld as a “pretty powerful machine.”

As you may recall, one of the chief complaints with the original PSP was the lack of software available at launch. Apart from a few standouts, pickings were slim up until the second year of its debut. Additionally, a constant stream of PS2 to PSP (as well as PSP to PS2) converts early on hardly helped fill the drought.
