Sony Working On New Playstation

Posted By | On 06th, Jul. 2010

Sony is working on new hardware in the Playstation family, Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has revealed The hardware is supposed to be an ‘all new concept,’ and is being worked upon behind closed doors  in full collaboration with Sony’s studio network.

It’s most likely that this new hardware is the long fabled successor to Sony’s PSP handheld, which is now needed more than ever with the impending launch of the 3DS, successor to the bestselling line of DS handhelds.

Said Yoshida: “When Ken Kutaragi moved on and Kaz Harai became the president of SCE, the first thing Kaz said was, ‘get World Wide Studios in on hardware development’.

“So he wanted developers in meetings at the very beginning of concepting new hardware, and he demanded SCE people talk to us [developers].”

When asked if the approach applied to new hardware, he added: “Yes, we are undergoing many activities that we haven’t yet been talking about in public. Some future platform related activities.”

Sony Computer Entertainment filed a new trademarks patent called the Playview, which was described as a ‘Portable electronic device for receiving and reading text and images and sound through wireless Internet access and for displaying electronically published materials, namely, books, journals, newspapers, magazines, multimedia presentations.’

However, it added that the product would handle ‘Computer game software recorded on optical discs’.

Sounds to be a PSP2, although it could be the PS4 as well. What do you guys think?
