FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

PSP2 Dev Kit Pics Leaked, Has Two Analog Sticks

Double the analog sticks, double the fun...



That's the PSP2 in that above picture. More specifically, it's a PSP2 dev kit and said to not be the final version. The design pictured above features a sliding design that tucks away the face buttons, much like the PSPgo. However, Sony is supposedly switching to a design that's has more in common with the original PSP's design.

What the final version of the PSP2 will have, going by what the dev kit features, is the much-needed inclusion of two analog sticks. The one thing that hindered the PSP more than anything else was the lack of a second analog stick and it seems Sony has learned from that mistake.

Aside from the analog sticks, the dev kit does include the rumored touch-panel on the rear of the unit, as well as front and rear facing cameras (possibly for Skype video calls), an HD screen and the staple PlayStation face buttons and D-pad. No word if the unit plays UMD disc like it's predecessor, uses a digital-only model like the PSPgo, or features a completely new format for media.



Not much else is known at this point about the PSP2 aside from the fact that these dev kits are indeed making their way into the hands of developers. As to when this will actually make it into the hands of eager gamers? Well, we're hedging our bets on an E3 2011 announcement and a holiday 2011 release window.

Are you relieved to hear that a second analog stick has been included? Also, why doesn't anyone who leaks pics every have a decent camera on hand?
