2011 Playstation Meeting Wrapup
It’s been a long time coming, but it seems as if the time is finally here. The announcement of the PSP2. Will it run on Android? Will it have a Cell processor? Can it really live up to the hype of PS3 quality graphics? OLED screen? Can they really do all of this and keep the price down? That was rhetorical.
Here’s what we know so far:
Seems as if this will allow users to get Playstation content via their Android phones.
Currently seems as if PS1 games are the target. A screen of Coolboarders (I think) with Playstation pad buttons pasted on the screen was shown.
Available this year.
