PSP2. Still Not Official.

Though at the rate of the "leaks" we probably know a lot more about the system then we should.

Sony is expected to announce the system later this week (need subscription to read the article). But their lack of delays in comparison to the huge amounts of photos/specs of the system on the internet makes me wonder if Sony actually gives a damn about this product. It's out there. We know what it looks like. We know what it does. So why are you taking so long to comment on it?

According to new reports, the PSP2 will have the ability to connect to the NTT DoCoMo network in Japan, a 3G network. While it may not apply to Western customers, the knowledge that it has 3G capabilities is appealing for the system. It'll give us more free reign to use it stateside. 3G means the potential to download movies, music, and such over a phone network rather then Wi-Fi hot spots, like the current PSP.

The PSP2 is expected to have an OLED screen. The benefits? Lower costs, lightweight, flexible, wider range of viewing angles, brightness, and better power efficiency. Sony was one of the first few to grab onto this technology, so it's no surprise they would implement it into the PSP2.

The Japanese website is also stating the that OLED will also be a touch screen. Not 100% confirmed as the system was expected to have a retractable touch-pad, but interesting none-the-less. We'll have to see what Sony FINALLY has to say at their press conference on the 27th.
