The PlayStation Portable 2 has been the recipient of a lot of rumours as of late, including statements and reports from MCV and Edge Magazine that Sony's new portable hardware is as powerful as the PlayStation 3.

Speaking to Eurogamer at a Nintendo 3DS event last week, Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens was optimistic about the future of portable gaming.

"We're at the tip of the iceberg," he said. "Mobile phones have only just got going" and it looks like the Nintendo 3DS and Sony PSP2 are set to take the stage.

"In portable areas, you're going to have statements, which are already out in the press, saying PlayStation Portable 2 is as powerful as the PS3 - which is true.

"So you're going to get mobile devices as powerful as what were considered notebooks. I just think it gets bigger."

Reports say that the PSP2 will ship with an OLED screen and a new processor to display HD visuals. In addition, 3G will be supported, allowing players to game online anywhere and at any time.
