New PSP's Battery Life Equivalent to Current PSP

John Koller writes: "Hi, everyone, there have been reports about the battery life of the new PSP system (PSP-3000) being shorter than the current model (PSP-2000), following an interview we recently did with Gamespot. I'd like to make a correction and clarify that the new PSP will have equivalent battery life to the current PSP, about 4 to 6 hours for games and about 4 to 5 hours for UMD videos. While the enhanced screen of the new PSP draws a little more power, our engineers in Japan worked to reduce the power consumption of the overall system including its components, so you won't have to worry about losing any time when enjoying the more vibrant visuals displayed with the new PSP."

that the Sony employee said that you would get 20 to 30 minutes less......but that you could still get the extended battery. This was just this week I confused.

Yes... did you read the post? Koller did say the PSP-3000 had 20-30 minutes less battery life last week, but he made a mistake. So he has corrected his statement today by saying that the new screen won't have an affect on battery life.

but it still does not explain him making such a mistake.
