If you can be sure of anything, it's that Sony will be pushing the NGP with its own particular brand of "wacky" trailers and adverts ahead of the next-generation console's release.

Sony PSP2 Dead on Arrival, Says Analyst

The mobile gaming market may not be as intense as the home console market, but there's obviously still a lot of money to be made within its reach.

Obviously, Sony believes that they've got a hit on their hand, and even some developers out there who have managed to get some hands-on time with the portable gaming console think it's nice.

Sony PSP2 Shown Off in Private Meeting, Coming Fall 2011

For a short time, the rumors regarding the second version of the traditional PlayStation Portable were picking up speed, which would lead some to believe that a spy photo would inevitably break cover before too long. But, that still hasn't happened, and in fact the rumors and speculation started to quiet down. We've heard in the past that the device was already in the hands of developers, that the PSP2 would feature a touch-pad on the back of the mobile console, and that it would not only feature a camera on the back, but also one on the front. These new rumors actually enforce a few we've heard in the past, but it looks like Sony isn't in any rush to get the new handheld gaming device to the market.

Sony PSP2 in the Hands of Developers

Rumors about Sony's next-generation PlayStation Portable (PSP) may have gone quiet for a little while now, but that doesn't mean they're over and done with. Looking back, we've heard how Sony plans on reinventing the PSP model altogether, and then we heard that touch controls could find their way onto the back of the device, confusing plenty of people out there. But, even further back, we had heard that Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) were being passed around to developers in the video game world, with some quieter voices saying that the device itself was finding those same hands. And now, it looks like those previous rumors may have been true.
