Well, if Game Informer will soon run an article about it, how much of a rumor can it really be?
According to MaxConsole , the Australian branch of the gaming publication recently ran a piece called, "PlayStation's New Portable," which is pretty self-explanatory. It also tells us the powerful little unit is actually capable of running something like Uncharted 3 and although we find that a tad difficult to believe, we have to realize that handheld technology improves right alongside console technology. There was a time when none of us could've dreamed we'd hold anything in our hands that could rival the PS2. Now, they say the next PSP is codenamed "Veta" for the time being and will hold even more internal memory than the Xbox 360 (1GB). Based on everything we've heard thus far, the PSP2 sounds like a beast of a machine, and we have heard an Uncharted game is in the works for the new portable hardware. That'd be one hell of a launch title, huh? I'd buy it.
We have to assume Sony is poised to unveil the PSP2 because at this point, it won't come as any big surprise, but at least we'll finally have all the facts.
