Depending on how much weight you want to put on Kotaku's "several sources," Sony's PSP2 console is shaping up to be a killer handheld.
Sources confirmed a previous rumor that there will be a touch panel on the back of the hardware, sort of like a giant trackpad. The PSP2 will also come with dual analog sticks, a feature that's missing on current iterations of the PSP.
Sony also decided to go with a larger screen (again, according to Kotaku's sources), which will be sharper than what's on current PSPs. Sony is said to be referring to the screen as "HD" behind closed doors.
Finally, the sources say the PSP2 will ship this Fall beating the holiday sales rush.
