The wait for the first glimpse of the PSP2 may finally be over. VG247 posted a picture of a PSP2 development kit earlier today.
The pics show the PSP2’s forward- and rear-facing cameras, as well as the trackpad on the rear of the unit.
Note that the PSP2 is still in development so it’s likely that this isn’t the console’s final form factor. Some developers are working with a kit with similar construction to a PSP go at the moment with a sliding screen over physical controls, as well as an HD screen.
EA has confirmed it’s had “exposure” to the unit, and developer Netherrealm has openly admitted it’s working with a kit. The PSP2 is supposedly heading for release in late 2011.
