Sony PlayStation Portable 3000

The PSP-3000 is the redesigned version of Sony's popular PlayStation Portable. The first PSP-1000 was followed by the PSP Slim&Lite (PSP-2000) announced during E3 2007. The PSP-3000 is an even slicker version of the PSP Slim&Lite, it was announced during Sony's Leipzig Games Convention press conference. The PSP-3000 looks almost exactly the same like the PSP-2000 Slim&Lite, but this new version of the PlayStation Portable has a built-in microphone and a better screen. The screen of the PSP-3000 is able to resist glare, so it will work better outdoors. The built-in microphone can be used for applications like Skype for PSP or for online gaming via Infrastructure.

The Video-Out feature has also been enhanced, the PSP-3000 is able to interlace with televisions that don't support a progressive output. Now you can use your PSP-3000 on non-HDTV's as well. The PSP-3000 will be released on October 15th in Europe and will be sold for €199.
