PSP 3000 also comes in silver

PSP 3000, the new SKU that sports a fancier, clearer screen and an in-built microphone, will also be available in "Mystic Silver" Sony has revealed.

The new PSP goes on sale across Europe on October 15th, and you can check out the first pics of it through the link. (Culture, PSP, Tech)

I think the PSP screen already looks great.
The only thing wrong with it is the slow refresh rate that causes all that ghosting especially with dark colors like black. If they fix that I might just pick this up. Although it sucks that Sony is releasing another model only 1 year after the last...

Anyone want to tell me why they disagree? Just curious. haha I have seen over a dozen PSP Fat and Slim screens and they all smear blacks like crazy.

Same here, if they fix the refresh rate and get rid of the ghosting I will probably buy one.

I would like to know....
about battery life and ram specs. I have the PSP 2000 (silver)and would get a 3000 if that meant it was sufficiently upgraded (outside of built in mic and Home button). Otherwise I'd get one...

I heard it has a better LCD screen for outside use. That's the one thing that annoyed me with my PSP slim. Guess I'm buying one. Both the black one and silver look awesome.

the psp 3000 specs.

wish i could read that.........
i'll put it in a translator. but god damn i just got the psp slim like 5 months ago.

If anything, I'll pick one up next year and maybe mess around with my current silver slim afterwards.

I bet the real reason the 3000 is being released is due to some major changes on the motherboard so that they can eliminate Pandora battery use by Sony repair technicians and regular consumers. I find it hard to believe that they would create a completely new model simply to add a mic and a slightly improved screen.

#1 console in Japan for 2009 will be the PSP I see the future thats why.

Chances are,theyve done something
That would brick it permanantly if hacked.And,Im still happy with my Slim.this isnt a big a hardware change as PSP phat to slim.the ram is still the same.no HDD etc.

a piece of sh*t!!!

The one thing this desperately needs is another analogue stick and those morons at Sony have completely ignored this HUGE HUGE HUGE flaw with the PSP!!!

I hope this new PSP flops hard to teach them a lesson!!!

Well that sucks... I had just bought my PSP a year ago and then they came out with the slim AND this newer version. Well I won't buy it, I'm comfortable with my old school PSP besides, I don't play outdoors so I don't need a brighter screen.

should've added another joystick and called it psp 2, I would buy it then.
