Latest PSP 2 Rumors Include Rumored Denial

More rumors regarding Sony's oft-denied PSP successor have begun floating around, this time filling the internet with conflicting words from unnamed sources.

The first wave comes from IGN, which was informed by "several credible sources" that the next PSP will feature "a widescreen multi-touch interface comparable to that of the iPhone for both in-game control and menu navigation." Such functionality was hinted at in a recent Sony survey, which asked users about their interest in a PSP touch screen.

But, according to MCV's own "source close to Sony," the IGN report is "nonsense."

"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," wrote the source.

"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," concluded MCV's source.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

    They better do something. God of War was really the most recent thing I wanted to play on the thing and that came out ten months ago. :P

        I had no idea a resistance game was coming out for the PSP. Interesting. God of War was amazing though.
