Sony Japan is testing a ‘new game machine’

It seems like every other week there is a new rumor about an upcoming Sony portable. The PSP2? Who knows. It seems like they are always killed by a lack of hard evidence and usually a stupid-looking concept header image (like the one above).

This time around, though, speculation is supported by a new help wanted at over at Sony Japan. According to Gamespot, they’re looking for someone to evaulate a “new game machine” that is “part of the PlayStation or PSP series and their peripherals.”

And there’s more:

The job listing goes on to state that, if accepted, evaluator/assessor applicants will “will be part of an advisory staff which will play PlayStation series software on this new machine and check its functionality. They will also be able to “test game machines not yet released or new functionality of PS3 peripherals before they are released.”

It’s been too long of a day for me to be creative and speculate on what this could be. I’m just hoping its a real PSP2 and not another PSP rehash. 

What do you hope this will be? Two analog sticks? Please!
