Sony's much-rumored and oft-denied PlayStation Portable followup will have a touchscreen and an "interface comparable to that of the iPhone," according to IGN.
I have no idea where the mockup comes from, but it's definitely just a mockup!
Well the d-pad and buttons sure look built for comfort!
This thing looks kinda terrible… Also, there are not nearly enough buttons, and I don’t think the touchscreen is the astounding part, maybe that it is also a phone will be the surprise. Note that the text ‘under’ the screen says SonyEricsson.
thank goodness that mockup is just a mockup. that “d-pad” looks like it would saw your thumb in two.
Sony’s smackdown response:
“Clearly, being a quiet time of year, many, what we thought to be credible websites, are making up stories about PSP2, and how it allows you to teleport across the globe, travel through time, and will be powered by the horns of baby rhinoceroses,” Sony explained. “Hopefully, you can sense a mild tone of sarcasm, which should hopefully indicate how ‘on the money’ IGN are. Needless to say, we don’t comment on rumour or speculation, but this is nonsense.”
