Eurogamer have published their latest chat with Sony regarding the PlayStation Move controller system. In this latest revelation Sony have admitted that they can make the Move even more accurate than it is currently through a potential upgrade of the units firmware. Although the source, Anton Mikhailov from SCEA, doesn’t believe an improvement in accuracy is necessary:

“So far we haven’t had any real requests from studios to improve the accuracy.  There are a couple of issues here and there we can fix, but the majority the games are not even taxing it to its full accuracy.”

Gaming website VG247 have declared that the ‘official’ release date for the next incarnation of the PlayStation handheld device, the PSP 2, will be “in time for Christmas 2011″.

Sony themselves have said nothing about a firm release date of a PSP 2 but, it they intend continuing with their PlayStation Portable gaming range then the PSP 2 will come at some point and a pre-holiday release would seem to make sense.

Apparently developers and publishers have been informed about the release date and the VG247 source told them that, “We’ve been told it’s coming in late 2011”. We will wait for the official word before getting too excited however.
