PSP "2" next year?
Scans from an issue of Playstation Magazine (not to be confused with the Official Playstation Magazine) indicate that an upgraded PSP may be ready in Japan as early as March 2007. It would not be called the PSP 2; PSM says that Sony is "instead eyeing a page [?] from Apple's iPod strategy and upgrading the existing PSP's specifications while keeping the retail price the same." The current PSP would be discontinued, while he new one would have a camera, a smaller size, 8 GB of flash memory, and a modified UMD slot. Naturally, the article cannot say when the upgrade would make its way outside of Japan.
