Patents filed by Sony Computer Entertainment America appear to confirm rumours that the company's to release a PSP successor with "touch control".
Several patents including diagrams were filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office in October, with one referencing a "handheld device with two-finger touch triggered selection", according to Edge.
All of the documents are linked by a statement saying that any upcoming product will have two screens: "Comprising: a case having first and second major surfaces; a visual display disposed on the first major surface; a touch interface disposed on at least one of the major surfaces".
While it has yet to be officially announced, the PSP2 exists and EA has had access to it - according to the publisher's senior vice president Patrick Soderlund.
