Sony claims its upcoming PlayStation Portable 2 (PSP2) will be as powerful as the PlayStation 3. The first official details about the PSP2 are to be released at a press conference in Tokyo on January 27.
Sony is reportedly pitching the PSP2 as a high-end portable equivalent to its PS3. The gaming content on the platform will clearly differentiate the handheld from Apple's and Google's mobile products as well as the games found on the App Store and the Android Market.
To start the hype, Sony has told licensees that the PSP2 "is as powerful as the PlayStation 3," according to MCV. That is a bold statement, and certainly one that the company is going to have a hard time satisfying.
