PSP2 Details Continue to Leak Out

If this is true, it's going to be one hell of a little powerhouse.

Reportedly, the PSP2 will have superior processing power to the Xbox 360! And that's not all- Duel analog sticks (yay!) and a touch pad make for a very attractive package overall. What's not so great is that Sony is alledgedly continuing it's push towards download only titles.

That's right, according to a report by Kotaku, UMD is gone and there's nothing to replace it- PSN or bust for the future of the PSP is looking very likely at this point.

Personally, I can't stand it. I need physical disc's. Not to mention that you can forget about used games and buy 2 get 2 at your local store. Then there's also the fact that this puts the nail in the coffin of backwards compatibilty for the PSP line. Did the PSP Go really do that well to support the DLC only plan Sony was looking for?

The answer is 'no', so this really makes no sense. At all. I suppose Sony is thinking that the lure of a portable juggernaut will make people forget all of the downfalls of discless games. Nothing is even close to final so I guess we'll see...
