Default PSP to get 50 GB hard drive?

http://www.joystiq.com/entry/1234000827033322/


And people laughed at me when I said there is R&D already for a newer PSP

This might not be true or not..but it does sound like something Sony would do.

Rumored but no chance, Sony stated that they have no intentions to change the PSPs specs.

EDIT: Stop going to crappy sites that just spread rumors without getting anything from the company...

Of course Sony would not want that to get out...because it would hurt their sales of the first gen PSP

You can literally get a 50 gig hard drive in a compact flash card. The problem though is that is hella expensive.

Because Sony isn't stupid, rereleasing the PSP with a 50GB HD would seperate thier market. Developers would be also split since some would want to make games for a system with a HD and others wont. It would kill the amount of software going towards the units.

Sony isn't dumb and I will bet $100 that they wont release a PSP with a 50GB HD in it. Sony also is known for not paying news orginizations off, hell it would be hard to pay of CNET (Owners of Gamespot).

Sony has made some really bad moves in the past.

I dont know if you recall a few years ago, where there was a big scandal with Sony Movie marketing dept....here is a link to one story i found

http://www.eonline.com/News/Items/0,1,8385,00.html

Quote:
The news comes just days after Sony admitted it paid movie theaters to have The Animal preview run before hit movies, drawing flak from rival studios for violating a long-time industry rule of giving away trailers to exhibitors.

For its part, Sony immediately removed the manufactured blurbs from future print ads and launched its own investigation into the incident. Reps for the studio refused further comment pending the results of the internal investigation
The difference is Sony is big enough if they make mistakes like microsoft they can recover a lot easier then most other companies and in this world money talks, anything is possible.

So what Ghosthunter? If they were to come out with a revision, what is the problem with that? You seem to love Nintendo and they have came out with a million revisions (and judging by your new topic maybe another one). So it is ok for Nintendo but HEAVEN FORBID Sony add something useful!

You know that Sony Pictures and Sony Computer Entertainment are two different companies right?
