Sony considered twin sticks for PSPgo

With every revision of the PSP that comes and goes the lust for a second analogue stick on the PSP increases – and Sony has now admitted that the feature very nearly became a reality with the upcoming PSPgo.

Speaking in the latest issue of GameInformer (via Kotaku), Sony development boss Shuhei Yoshida stated: “We also felt, like many users, that we wish we had a second analogue on the PSP.

“But we are talking about the mid-life cycle of this platform, and the PSPgo is designed to be perfectly compatible with the PSP-3000 and all the games that released before that.

“So we had a very serious discussion about this particular subject, but we decided not to add a second analogue, and some of the developers are doing quite a nice job translating the second analogue functionality to different buttons. We didn’t want to divert their efforts either.”
