If there are slightly fewer geeks quietly hanging around outside your local internet cafe, there’s a reason – they’ve all flown to Germany for Games Convention, Europe’s biggest annual video game show.
Sony revealed its GC plans last night, one of which is this – a redesigned PSP, dubbed the PSP-3000 thanks to its serial number. You might not be able to spot much of a difference externally, but inside you’re getting a supposedly “enhanced” LCD screen that’s better at coping with outdoor lighting conditions, plus a built-in microphone for easier playing of “party” “games” and Skype-ing.
The newer PSP will arrive this Autumn, for however much 199 euros translates to at the time. Or simply 199 euros if you live somewhere other than here.
