Sony may roll out PSP2 at January 27 special event

Sony may finally make the PSP2 public on January 27. A rumor from "trade sources" has it showing at a special event in Tokyo. Publishers were reported by MCV as having known since late last year and would have had development kits for some time.

The company's PlayStation head Kaz Hirai has already hinted that the system was in development and would combine touch and buttons. A full touchscreen along with a possible back touchpad and dual analog sticks might show in the initial model. Sony is equally known to be planning a major leap in performance that might give performance closer to that of the PS3, although the TV console is now over four years old and thus a realistic target.

The rumor isn't confirmed and may be contradicted by rumors that had the PSP2 not shipping until much later. Sony could, however, give an early preview of the system this month but leave most of the year to get more game support and polish the design.
