Sony is going big with their follow up handheld console – slating it for a Q4 2011 release and going as far as saying that the device is as powerful as its console counterpart; the Playstation 3.

The new Playstation Portable is expected to arrive within the Q4 period, with some people suggesting a delivery as early as October. The new device features dual joysticks and is rumoured to look similar to the original PSP. To further back up the expected release date, Sony is already talking to developers and publishers about the first wave of games.

Sony is expecting to display more of the device at GDC and E3 2011. If you have any questions or you just want to talk about the upcoming device, hit me up on Twitter! – @DrjftGaming.
