Clearly the rumour won't go away until the day a new machine is finally announced, but again overnight talk has emerged of alleged details of Sony's PSP 2 – and again, sources at Sony have completely denied them.
IGN states that several credible sources” have told it that PSP 2 is nearing, boasting multi-touch screen technology similar to that popularised by Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch. Also touted is Bluetooth support, integrated hard drive and integrated GPS.
However, a source close to Sony has told MCV that: Clearly, being a quiet time of year, many, what we thought to be credible websites, are making up stories about PSP2, and how it allows you to teleport across the globe, travel through time, and will be powered by the horns of baby rhinoceroses.
Hopefully, you can sense a mild tone of sarcasm, which should hopefully indicate how ‘on the money' IGN are. Needless to say, we don't comment on rumour or speculation, but this is nonsense.”
