PSP 3000 will only be available bundled with software in Europe

Those of you looking to upgrade your existing PSP to a PSP 3000 this October, prepare yourself - the console will only be available to buy in a package bundled with software.

Speaking to SCEE President David Reeves broke the news that those of you looking to pick one up at launch will be forced to buy some software with it.

"We're going to introduce PSP-3000 in October, and this will be sold initially as part of a bundle, with a piece of software. During this period, PSP-2000 will remain as the base PSP model."

I highly doubt this will be $400+ in NA.

The price will be the same as the PSP-2000...The PSP2000 will be discontinued as of now...and in october the PSP3000 will be released.

Yes for North America but for Europe it's bundles only unless they plan to make an official statement [if there isn't one] about this.

Oh God, you could of at least given GoW:CoO with it, sigh. Guess I'll take Buzz.

In October I will have a new PSP! YAY!

Do you even care about the new model?

I sure as hell don't, since I have the 1000 model and was pissed that a new model was coming up...

Enjoy for those that are planning on buying the 3000, I'll stick with the original, know that at least I'm okay with it and don't regret buying it...

i also have the 1000 series, and i am interested in the 3000, but i think i would only get it if something happened to my 1000. I think i am just gunna stick on to the 1000 until it dies an get a new one, or wait until the psp2 comes along.

because I can take advantage of my protection plan and get it without paying anything extra. I wonder if the new screen will have anything to do with bluray movie's being streamed or watched on the psp anytime in the future. Speaking of the future......does anybody know if Home will have any functionality on the psp?

I already have 2 PSP-1000(black&White) but I still want a PSP-2000! I played my friend's PSP slim and that really made me want it so badly! then this PSP-3000 announcement came to surface, which made me thinking twice! it's going to be released this october, right? I think I can wait.

ps: Dark Alex will be all over this! I bet he's giggling and mumbling waiting for this new PSP to come! he already has the 'key' for 1000 and 2000 firmly in his plam and he'll never let 3000 stay 'unharmed', if you know what I mean!

I have a PSP-2000, and the new screen sounds pretty awesome. I'm buying one and selling my slim.

I'd consider buying one if they had added a second analog stick, would have been perfect for the new resistance game, its going to be FPS right?

It's third-person, actually.

And from what I've seen, the game looks damn easy because you basically aim by keeping enemies in a giant box in the middle of the screen.
