Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s senior vice president of product development, had plenty to say about PSP2, a.k.a. NGP, today during the firm’s unveiling of the handheld in Tokyo. An in the video interview with Gamespot posted below the break, he tells the site that the games shown during today’s event are just a taste of what’s to come.

According to Yoshida, the fact that there was more Japanese developers listed as creating games for the handheld than western studios basically boils down to the fact the event was held in Japan. Come E3, though, Yoshida said Sony plans to announce more games from the west being created for PSP2.

This could explain why EA and THQ were both missing from the massive list of developers handed out today.

PSP2 does not have a price just yet, nor and exact release date, but now that it’s out in the open and no longer in rumorville, expect Sony to announce more goodies for it from now until the big LA shebang this summer.
