David Reeves thinks there's a good chance that Sony will launch a true successor to the PSP within the next year.
Furthermore, the former SCEE president and CEO believes that if they don't they could face a permanent exit from the handheld race.
It's an exciting time and you could possibly have two handhelds coming out within months or a year of each other,” Reeves told GamesIndustry.
Sony tried to make the transition with PSPgo. I think that changed some consumers attitudes, but they need to come back with something on PSP pretty quickly to stay in the game because Nintendo are shit hot at getting these things right. And they always get these things right.”
Currently, all sings point to confirmation of a PSP successor some time later this year – quite possibly at the Tokyo Game Show.
