Former Sony Europe boss and COO of Capcom Europe David Reeves, has said that Sony should release PSP2 if they are serious about competing in the handheld market.

Speaking in an interview with GI, Reeves responded to a question about the release of a PSP2 and if it would be wise for Sony to do.

“I’d like to the think it would be for the publishers and developers and consumers,” he said.

“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.”

Sony has recently denied that it was considering a PSP2, and this seems to be backed up by the fact that they are launching a new PSP campaign in the US to promote the current device.

VG247 has heard it on good authority that a PSP2 will be announced later this year at gamescom in Cologne or maybe even at Tokyo Games Show.
