Rumor: PSP2 dev kits sent to studios

Not only is a PSP2 real, Sony is readying a “significant launch window line-up,” according to Develop. Citing “multiple industry sources,” the site reports that Sony has handed out dev kits to a “number” of key studios. Although Develop’s sources wouldn’t go on the record about the fabled handheld, one developer doesn’t seem have a problem with it.

Shaun Himmerick, executive producer at NetherRealm Studios, recently claimed to have a PSP2 in hand and called it “a pretty powerful machine.”

If we are to see a PSP2 in 2011, expect the rumor mill to heat up in the coming months.
