After seeing E3 2010 come and go without a hint of a PSP2 on show from Sony, chief Operating Officer for Capcom in Europe David Reeves has told, quite wisely, that he feels that Sony simply have to release a new PSP in order to keep up with Nintendo in the handheld market. As he is the former European Sony Computer Entertainment boss, he may just know what he is talking about too.

He also made reference to the PSPgo which unfortunately was a bit of a flop for Sony, despite recently offering customers 10 free games to download to the system. The PSPgo is perhaps successful enough for Sony but  not as, in Mr Reeves words, “shit hot” as Nintendo’s forays in handheld gaming whom he states “always get these things right”.

Sony have confirmed that they will unveil new hardware at E3. It remains to be seen if they are simply unveiling the PlayStation Move or presenting the more awaited PSP 2 or the PS4.

Apart from games, Sony will also showcase their latest technology like full-body motion capture. Apart from this, they will also showcase new motion-control inputs and 3-D systems at the video game expo.

Sony is also expected to show more titles that will play in 3D on the PlayStation 3 console.
