PSP2 to Possibly Feature Touch Controls

Sony Computer Entertainment’s gaming chief Kazuo Hirai recently spoke with the New York Times and dropped some hints about the PSP 2 including some comments that seem to confirm that the system will feature touch controls; though as an addition and not the focus.

“Depending on the game, there are ones where you can play perfectly well with a touch panel. But you can definitely play immersive games better with physical buttons and pads. I think there could be games where you’re able to use both in combination.”

I completely agree with him. I enjoy playing games on my iPod Touch, but physical controls would make a great deal of them much better. Combine that with the rumors that the PSP2 will feature two analog sticks instead of one, and I think Sony might be onto something here.
