The battle for mobile gaming consumer is alive and well!

Sony looks to be the latest to woo potential mobile gamers as it beefs up its upcoming Playstation Portable 2 device (PSP2). According to Japanese newspaper Nikkei, the upcoming PSP2 will not only have a touch OLED screen, but it will also have support for 3G networks, allowing gamers to battle online with friends and download content. That content could probably be anything from games, software patches, DLC and movies.

The paper mentions that the 3G connection will be provided by DoCoMo, the country’s largest cell phone carrier. While there’s no mention of the availability of a 3G PSP2 in the United States, it’s presumable that the device will use the mobile broadband technology.

Given the likely demanding bandwidth requirements for playing games and downloading movies from the device, it’s safe to assume that the 3G connection will not be provided for free. Depending on the pricing, it may be difficult for gamers to stomach another monthly bill.

Look out for Sony’s official announcement of the PSP2 on the 27th.
