The PSP2 exists and EA has had access to it - according to the publisher's senior vice president Patrick Soderlund.
However, no major publisher has admitted that it has seen the device - until now.
In a new interview, which will be published on CVG soon, we asked EA's Soderlund: "Have you had any exposure at all to the PSP2?"
He replied: "Well, obviously as a developer we have had that - but I'm not allowed to talk about it."
Soderland was obviously reluctant to talk about Sony's new hardware - and skilfully avoided giving away any more detail.
When asked about his expectations for the console, he said: "We can't talk about it because of our relationship with Sony obviously, which is... That's just the way it is."
Soderland's comments come after Mortal Kombat's executive producer Shaun Himmerick's admission that his studio had access to PSP2. We think it's safe to say that the console's out there as we speak. Who wants one?
EA's currently pushing high-speed racer Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, which got its first review in the new issue of GamesMaster - with a very impressive 93 percent at the end of it.
