Another rumor has surfaced out of the wilderness of the Net about the awaited PSP2 (or sometimes also dubbed PSP-4000). It is said the one of the source at the developer side has leaked the news. Apparently, the new PSP2 will give up the UMD drive and go with a sliding screen (see picture). When the screen is closed, you won’t be able to see any control buttons.
However, even though the control buttons are covered, you could still play certain games such as LocoRoco because you can use the shoulder buttons. That’s all the info that we can get. No further news on the price or the release date yet. However, if you expect to see it earlier, Eurogamer has reported that it will be on the market by the end of this year.
