Better get eBay booted up, and start deciding between .jpegs, as the new Sony PSP Slim has been released today, so there’s no good reason to hold onto your old lardy model. Well, apart from the fact it costs £129.99 and you’d be lucky to get £100 on eBay for your used PSP, even if you throw in ten games and a nice Logic3 travel pack.
So what’s going to encourage you to upgrade? Could it be the fact that it’s 33% lighter and 19% smaller? That it’s now made in Piano Black plastic instead of the heavier metal previously seen? That there’s additional RAM (faster loading times, zomg!), but apart from that…not much else. Sure, it can still play videos and music files, display photos, allow you to browse the web through the Wi-Fi and Web-browsing capabilities, but you’d be hard pressed to say the upgrade is as impressive as Nintendo’s was with the DS to DS Lite.
Out now, it’s £129.99 at GAME.
