PSP2 Rumors

- Joystiq has a post about some of the rumors out there right now regarding the probable successor to the PSP.
- claims the PSP follow up is "a successor rather than a redesign of the current system" but recognise a redesign of the PSP may appear too.
- Features of PSP2 would include a hard drive, no UMD and would be called "PSP 2."
- Problem is they say it "may" appear "in the next three years." No sh*t Sherlock.
- New Tech Spy, much less reputable, the PSP will soon have a touchscreen, will be smaller and have a ton of wireless (WiFi, WiBro, UMTS, EVDO, WiMax.)
