Disappointingly few people know that Sony and Nintendo aren’t the only purveyors of handheld games consoles (no I’m not counting that Gizmondo nonsense). Both of these companies also have a particularly unfriendly view of the homebrew applications, seeing as it tends to go hand in hand with piracy. Gamepark, however, is all about the homebrew scene. It has already released a number of handheld consoles of varying spec and is now gearing up to release a third – the GP3X.

We learned yesterday that the sort-of-new, sort-of-cut-price 80GB PS3 model was due for North America shortly. But what of little old Europe? Sony has since confirmed that the same model – a non-backwards compatible, larger capacity version of the current 40GB model – will be landing here on August 27th. The price is set at £299 / 399 Euros, the same as the current version.
