    - PSP2 is under development right now. Basically a Wii-tized PSP with
    minor performance boost and major increase in storage. Optional
    cellphone module.

    - Update on PSX4. SCEI explored two options, Wii-tized PSX3 and
    Larrabee box last summer. 3rd party survey on Wii-tized PSX3 came out
    to be very negative, while internal 1st party developers said they
    could swallow CELL again. As for Larrabee PSX4, Hiroshige's sources
    are in conflict. One source say it was ruled out, while the other say
    SCEI's still evaluating, especially after Wii-tized PSX3 survey turned
    out to be very negative.

    - Larrabee PSX4 box has only Larrabee, no separate CPU.

    - Which way SCEI goes, SCEI plans to beat Xbox 3's launch with PSX4.

    That "let's see what you got for an encore" mentality may be all there
    is to keep things moving for now.

    As to the snobs here and elsewhere, the world owes much to gamers. Be
    nice.

    It would simply be next-gen consoles, PS4, XB3, Wii2, for the
    2011-2013 timeframe.

    'next-next-gen' would mean PS5, XB4, Wii3 in the 2018-2020 timeframe.
