“At Sony’s press conference yesterday we mentioned that an enhanced design for PSP is due to hit stores worldwide in September. Here’s the full details:
While succeeding the basic functions and design philosophy of the current PSP including a 4.3 inch wide high resolution LCD screen, overwhelmingly large for a handheld device, new PSP is 33 percent lighter and 19 percent slimmer than the original version, making the all-in-one handheld entertainment system easier to carry around at approx.189g in weight (weight of current model is approx.280g) and approx.18.6mm in thickness (thickness of current model is approx.23.0 mm).
Adding a video-out port enables new PSP users to experience UMD (Universal Media Disc) Video, pictures and movies from Memory Stick Duo and game software titles on their TVs at home. Also, new PSP is equipped with enhanced feature to temporarily store game data from UMD, reducing load time during game play. Moreover, the ability to charge the unit throughPS3 or PC via USB cable during data transfer is newly equipped, further positioning PSP as a true handheld device.
A new PSP comes in three basic colors of Piano Black, Ceramic White, and Ice Silver to meet a variety of lifestyle and preferences for all ages.”
