The PSP hasn’t exactly been Sony’s pride and joy since its release back in 2005. Despite portable installments of their biggest franchises, like God of War, Sony hasn’t had much success with the device, even after churning out multiple revisions to the hardware. Which makes it interesting that site MCV has been tipped that two major publishers are significantly ramping up their marketing budgets for the PSP brand this upcoming holiday season (Q4). Last year’s PSP Go was a dud, so it doesn’t make sense that they’d put a ton of money into an ad campaign for it. All signs point to the PSP2, which would probably be an HD device that would be a direct competitor against Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS. If Sony is making the PSP2, then it will probably be announced at this year’s E3. So, are you excited yet?
