PSP 2 to sport touchscreen

One Monday claim by IGN suggests Sony's portable gaming system, the PSP, is close to being replaced by a successor that would be totally redesigned, unlike the two comparatively mild updates the gaming system received in its lifetime. Fitting in with the possibility of a touchscreen PSP-branded cellphone, the report suggests the next PSP will have a widescreen multi-touch interface similar in execution to Apple's iPhone.

A survey issued by the company was recently leaked, asking customers to rate which features they'd like to see most in the next system. The choices they had to choose from included the aforementioned touchscreen, Bluetooth capability, a built-in hard drive, GPS sensor and wireless networking and access to social networks.

Sony hasn't officially commented on the rumor. An unofficial response given to MCV claims that the story is "nonsense," though Sony has yet to deliver any major updates or sequels to the PSP since it was introduced in 2004. The compact PlayStation has regularly struggled to compete against the Nintendo DS and faces similar challenges with the iPhone and iPod touch, both of which are technically more powerful than the PSP and have built-in permanent storage.

    Apple will sue.

    So you think with Apple's newly granted long list of multi-touch patents that they are going to let Sony bring this to market?

    Think again.
