PSP-3000 Confirmed

This means the new PSP-3000 model should hit retail shelves soon. Though there have been plenty of clues for months & months now, from unused nids referencing new hardware devices, a reference to a 03g model in the IPL, that 3000? graphic on the official Sony site, and most recently, alleged pics of a prototype.

Now its just a matter of waiting for the official announcement and the official list of changes. Hopefully some of the rumours that have been floating around turn out to be true (the hard disk drive comes to mind).

With the new PSP-2000 TA-088v3 model that is out now that is completely Pandora-proof you can bet the PSP-3000 will also be completely Pandora-proof. Im sure there would be plenty of people who would only want to buy a hackable PSP-3000. Though you can be sure that when this new model gets here we will all be looking thoroughly for new hacks for it.

Re: PSP-3000 Confirmed

Sony announced its updated PSP-3000 system at last week's Leipzig Games Convention. Pictures of the new system have already popped up online, but GameSpot has the first hands-on look at the new PSP here in the United States. Click here to see the full PSP-3000 interview with Sony's John Koller.

The PSP-3000 plays the same games and offers the same media support as the older PSP models, but Sony has upgraded the system with an improved LCD screen and a new built-in microphone. The LCD is the same size and resolution as older PSP displays, but it has a "wider color gamut and anti-reflection technology," according to the latest Sony press release.
http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2008/features/hardware/psp3000/psp3000_screen002.jpg
The wider color gamut means that the new PSP screen is capable of displaying a wider range of colors. The new LCD also features five times the contrast ratio and quicker pixel-response times than the old PSP display. The response time has doubled in speed and will help eliminate ghosting or blurring during gameplay and video playback.

The increased color gamut and improved contrast ratio was noticeable when we placed the PSP-3000 system right next to a PSP-2000 (PSP Slim); colors looked richer and more vibrant on the PSP-3000. The vivid, ghost-free screen does draw more power than the old screen. John Koller, Sony director of hardware marketing told GameSpot that the new screen will reduce battery life by "about 20 minutes."
http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2008/features/hardware/psp3000/psp3000_screen003.jpg
Sony added the antireflective technology to improve the PSP's outdoor playability. We took our two PSPs outside for some side-by-side testing under the bright California sun. Neither system was playable in direct sunlight, but the PSP-3000's display performed better than the 2000's when we took a look at both systems in a shady area beneath a tree. We had difficulty taking pictures of the PSP's antireflective screen in action outside--please bear with our angled indoor shots.

http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2008/features/hardware/psp3000/rollover2.jpg
The new system has the same video-out port and uses the exact same video cables as the PSP-2000, but Sony has upgraded the PSP-3000's video output to support gameplay output on interlaced displays using composite video cables. The move will surely excite gamers dismayed over the fact that the PSP Slim can output gameplay video only to progressive scan displays. Now they can buy a new PSP instead of an HDTV.

The PSP-3000's other major upgrade is its new built-in microphone. Sony put the integrated microphone into the PSP design roadmap after seeing the success of the headset-enabled SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo. Sony placed the microphone pickup beneath the screen to the right of the volume buttons, well out of thumb reach, to prevent any inadvertent muting.

http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2008/features/hardware/psp3000/rollover8.jpg
(For viewer reference, the PSP-3000 is the silver system, while the white PSP is the older PSP-2000.)

Sony hasn't moved around any buttons or switches on the PSP-3000, but the system does have a few external design changes. The black PSP-3000 will have the same glossy finish as the older models, but the silver and white PSP-3000 systems now have a textured surface that provides better protection against fingerprints. The Sony logo that was located on the upper right of the system face has moved to the upper left, and the PlayStation logo that used to be in the upper left is now on the home button beneath the LCD. In addition to rotating the logos, Sony designers have replaced the brushed metal ring on the back of the unit with a thinner chrome ring. The PSP's edges have also softened along the sides while hardening in the corners.

The PSP-3000 will be compatible with the same accessories as the PSP-2000. However, Koller did tell us that the PSP-3000 power adapter might not be 100 percent compatible with older PSP models. Sony has seen a very small number of cases where the PSP-3000's AC power adapter was unable to charge older PSPs.

The silver PSP will be available first, on October 14, 2008, in a $199 Ratchet & Clank Entertainment Pack. The package will include a silver PSP-3000, a Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters UMD game, a National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets UMD movie, a PlayStation Network download voucher for Echochrome, and a 1GB Memory Stick Pro Duo. The black PSP will ship in November in a $199 PSP 4GB Memory Entertainment Pack that includes the black PSP-3000, a 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, and a PlayStation Network download voucher for Everyday Shooter. The black PSP-3000 will also make it into the basic PSP Core Pack, priced at $169, sometime later this year.

Re: PSP-3000 Confirmed

I actually prefer the old fat PSP1000, it's got its own character about it, not to mention it's more rugged (I accidentaly left it under my pillow and the screen didn't crack.)

Re: PSP-3000 Confirmed

Look at the post above buddy. There are your pics. As for features? An antenna, a built in microphone, and increased ram.

At EB Games in Mackay Australia QLD, it said that the new PSP 3000 will cost $300 or $99 if you trade your old psp system (slim or phat) and two games

Re: PSP-3000 Confirmed

I picked up a PSP-3000 today (I thought release date was 17th October in the UK).

The good news is that it will encourage me to get myself back in to developing some flash content for the PSP. My first mission is to actually do something with Teleport as I have spent a long time developing it for the sake of taking up my HDD space at the moment.

Anyway back to the PSP-3000, it seems that there is little change to the unit compared to the 2000 but the screen is very impressive, the colours are so rich and vibrant but the screen is the only real update on this (compared to the slim).

I think that only applies to the PS1 games, the PSP games still have a border (unless there is a menu option I have missed).

Oh dear, I will see if I can sort that out. Is it happening on all games? I think we may have to look in to some new code for high scores.
