Sony PSP2 to get larger screen, due next fall?

Sony had a private meeting at its Tokyo office close to the Tokyo Game Show where it showed off the upcoming PSP2portable gaming console. Also, sources say that the rear touch controls like those on the Motorola Backflip are present, backing earlier rumors. Sony did not describe how the trackpad will work, with developers in charge of implementing it in their games.

The screen was said to have higher resolution -- Sony reportedly used the word HD in the meeting -- while bumping up its size by about an inch. This likely means the PSP2 will grow in size compared to the current PSP.

Sony is said to be facing an issue with the PSP2 hardware related to heat management, battery life and power. Before showing the device to the public, Sony needs to resolve these issues. The processor and chip size are still not finalized as Sony works to resolve this. The PSP2 is said to come out next fall, but Sony is not yet discussing release dates. [via Kotaku]
