The PSP2 has officially been announced by Sony at their live event today. The handheld has really changed, unlike the PSP 2000 or 3000 there have been more significant changes done to the handheld device then adjusting the brightness the handheld has had a complete nip/tuck with a whole new hardware set and with the removal of UMD's too.
Sony has decided to stick with the classic PSP design instead of following in the footsteps of the Go/XperiaPlay
Here is an official spec sheet of the PSP2
The PSP2 bares a quad core A9 Cortex CPU and EVEN a QUAD CORE GPU, with 3G being added as a new wireless communication option and the removal of UMD in place of Memory card shaped game cartridges. The PSP2 is certainly going places
With a launch date of the holiday Season it will seem that the PSP2 won't be competing in sales against the 3DS anytime soon.
A new video shows that the PSP2 MIGHT be getting some great launch titles such as Uncharted 3 and even Killzone 3
