Developers behind the famed Mortal Kombat series, Netherrealm Studios, claim to have a PSP2 in-house, and they reckon it’s pretty meaty as handhelds go.
Sony has yet to officially announce any such machine, but in an interview with Industry Gamers, executive producer Shaun Himmerick behind Mortal Kombat 2011 said;
“PSP2 looks like it’s a pretty powerful machine.”
“We’re not launching day one on all consoles like that. We are looking at them; we have a PSP2 in the house and we’re looking at the engine, like what can it support. Always a big thing for us is the performance. We’re running at 60 fps, what can we do and do we have to build all the art assets over. We’re definitely looking at them. PSP2 looks like it’s a pretty powerful machine. We don’t have a 3DS system in house yet, but we’re looking to get one, and we’ll certainly look at what its power is.”
Pretty juicy slip up.
Now it’s anybody’s guess as to the release of the PSP2, but we can speculate that it will arrive fairly shortly, and probably before the 3DS.
Thanks, Industry Gamers.
