Sony surveys fans on PSP2 features

Gaming, Mobile phones

psp2-concept.jpgSony has been roundly beaten in the handheld and the… er… non-handheld markets by Nintendo (seriously, we need a better name for full size consoles than that – suggestions in the comments). What’s the best way for them to fight back? That’s the question that Sony is asking its fans, with a survey floating several new feature ideas for the PSP2 and asking people to rank them.

Some of the new features include GPS, bluetooth, internal storage, touchscreen, a content download service and a social network including home support. Personally speaking, I’d rate GPS and social network features high, if only to compete with the growing influence of mobile phones on the gaming-on-the-go market. Adding in Skype features could just make the fightback possible.

  • I came to your article from another article and am really interested in this learning about this.I feel strongly about information and love learning more on this. If possible, as you gain expertise, It is extremely helpful for me.

  • Where does that survey of SONY goes on? Any direct link?
    I am onto old design + 2nd analog stick on right side + better & higher resolution OLED screen + new SSD storage format for games against UMD (it rotates and consumes the battery quickly)+ better battery life and maybe internal GPS. Optional add ons can be keyboard, GSM, camera
    -No sliding/retractable screen, keys etc. rubbish design that would get damaged in a few falldowns.
    Let the thing be reliable and durable (as it is) other than being fancy. Let it be a solid single piece design that will survive several years of hard usage.
