NGP takes all comers: Call of Duty, Metal Gear, Yakuza, Lost Planet, Monster Hunter, more demonstrated
The PlayStation meeting may have been Sony’s party, but the publisher certainly didn’t hog the spotlight. Third-parties got in on the action too. How many third-parties? All of them, basically.

Update: Sorry, folks. No nail in this one’s coffin just yet. We got in touch with a Sony rep, only to receive a big, fat ”we don’t comment on rumour or speculation.” So then, let the rumor and speculation continue!
Original article: Sony, maybe you ought to just go ahead and cancel that big meeting of yours.
Don’t worry. The Internet’s got it covered.

The bell’s tolling. The fat lady’s singing. Somewhere, a PSP squirrel is squeezing out a single badly drawn tear.
Farewell, PSP. You’ll always be in our hear– well, hello there, hot stuff. You say your name’s PSP2? Want to, we don’t know, get a coffee or something? You know, it’s been rumored that you have a touch screen. Maybe we could have a look at it?

Update: Sony’s Michael Denny has weighed in on the rumor, stating there is nothing to announce at the moment. Get his full response to GI.biz below.
Original: According to Eurogamer, Sony’s vision for its next PSP is roughly the same size as the PSP-3000 and includes touch controls on the reverse of the unit.

SCEE’s Andrew House has put his boot into rumors over a new PSP model, and a possible price-cut for PS3.

Acclaim boss Dave Perry’s called on SCEA’s John Koller to publicly deny Sony’s upcoming, unannounced PSP revamp won’t include UMD support.
“John Koller is publically questioning my post about PSP 2,” Perry said on his Twitter.
“So I confirmed with Top PSP 2 developers. John, state that PSP 2 WILL have UMD.”
It won’t have UMD, obviously. Sony just doesn’t want to talk about anything to do with it yet.
“PSP2″ isn’t a successor at all, more a “reimagining” of the original design. It’s known to have a slide screen and is expected to be announced at E3.

Sony has just issued a “no comment” in light of continuing rumour on “PSP2.”
Talk emerged this week that PSP-4000 will have a complete aesthetic overhaul, featuring sliding screen support, amongst other features.
Wed, Feb 25, 2009 | 11:32 GMT
Acclaim boss David Perry has twittered that Sony is to drop UMD support for “PSP2″.
“I hear Sony FINALLY has the PSP 2. And thank goodness, they’ve removed the stupid battery-sucking UMD disc drive. I’m excited!” said Dave.
We told you about PSP’s heavily rumoured revamp on Monday, in all its sliding screen wonder. Go read.
Thanks goes to GAF.

“A source close to Sony” has issued a less than subtle denial to IGN’s PSP2 rumour, calling the talk of a touch-screen sequel to the handheld “nonsense.”
“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,” MCV was told today.
“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.”
Don’t hold back, “source.” Sony’s put out an official denial of the story, according to TechRadar, although no quote was given.

SCEE has apparently got in touch with Techradar to flatly deny the earlier rumours that a touch-screen PSP was coming soon.”
“Sony has flatly denied that a PSP mark 2 is in the works,” says the article. No quote was given.
We can’t say we’re surprised at this one, really.

IGN’s rumouring that a second PSP, replete with multi-touchscreens, will be with us sooner rather than later.
From the piece:
IGN has learned from several credible sources that the PSP 2 is indeed on the horizon, and will be packing multi-touch technology. According to our sources, the PSP 2 will feature a widescreen multi-touch interface comparable to that of the iPhone for both in-game control and menu navigation.
Talk’s gathering pace on this. Eurogamer ran a piece in December saying a new PSP unit, described by the site as “PSP-4000,” would release in 2009.
Sony promptly flattened the chat. Just make sure it’s a phone as well, please, Sony.

Sony’s once again said it has no plans to release “PSP2,” despite Eurogamer rumouring the contrary earlier this week.
From Alley Insider:
Speaking to SAI earlier today, Sony Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller said he’s familiar with Internet reports PSP2 game development is already underway, but said the rumors are completely unfounded. What’s going on, Koller told us, is Sony is pushing developers away from its “Universal Media Discs” and towards digital distribution of games via the PSP store. Someone misinterpreted the new push as “PSP2″ development, Koller said.
Sony still says “no plans for a PSP2 are underway.”
