Rumors

    • PSP2 to feature quad core iteration of Imagination Technologies PowerVR “Hydra” (SGX543MP) GPU
    • It will be an enhanced version of the same GPU found in the iPhone 3GS
    • As a result, the approximated power of the device will rival the original Xbox
    • The “Hydra” is also a GP-GPU meaning it can function as a CPU and GPU

Watching those teaser videos were exciting, but reality quickly caught up and I knew I couldn’t relive those great moments of the past. MechWarrior 2 and its two expansions are among my most cherished games of all time; they were awesome. But those days are long gone and I doubt anyone can bring it back. Hell, we don’t even know if this will be a simulation game or a third person action game like MechAssault.

Congrats to Google for finally letting go of those beta tags. It’s about time.

P.S – Farewell Michael Jackson.
