Sony Computer Entertainment 3D figurehead Kaz Hirai has kind of dissed the 3DS, though not mentioning it by name, implying that the PSP 2 may not employ 3D technology.
In an interview with Asian publication Sankei Biz, Hirai said, "Based off internally conducted research, naked-eye 3D for portables does not have high precision, and at present there are limitations."

With such a dismissing comment, it would be unlikely that the next PSP system will have similar glasses-free 3D tech, and it also calls into the question of whether or not 3D will be a calling card for the PSP2 at all.

In the world of 3D gaming, Sony is doing more than any other company. Although Nintendo seemed to impress with its 3DS handheld, which can display depth and realism on a screen without the need for external glasses, it isn't the same caliber as the stereoscopic 3D currently being implemented on Sony's PS3. That's the same standard that the new generation of 3D TVs and Blu-ray Disc movies use.

Added Hirai, "With such things as a strengthened 3D-compatible software lineup, we aim to increase hardware sales."
