MMGN writes: Following Sony's revealing of a new PSP model during its GamesCom 2011 press conference, gamers began querying Sony's new direction with the handheld.
With Vita's launch fast approaching (in Japan at least -- we still don't know of other region release dates) the PSP's worth is quickly dwindling, despite it still selling well in Japan and other regions.
Even MMGN members have voiced their confusion at the new model, mainly focused on its lack of wi-fi functionality. Priced at under 100 Euro, it's definitely an affordable piece of hardware, but without any online connection, how are people supposed to get their games?
While at first glance the idea might seem strange -- the PSP's disc format in the UMD is essentially obsolete, with little-to-no new games being released for months -- it's actually not as wacky as you might think.
