According to multiple reports, Sony is set to officially announce PSP2 at an event in Japan next Thursday, January 27.
Andriasang is reporting that an analyst has revealed that the event is called 'PlayStation Meeting'.
The site says PlayStation Meeting events used to be held periodically, but next week's one will be the first in six years.
Former PlayStation head Ken Kutaragi outlined the firm's PS3 plans at the last one in July 2005.
Taking to Twitter, analyst Yasuaki Fujima said we should expect some unexpected major announcements as the event is taking place ahead of Sony's third quarter earnings announcement.
