GC ’08: Sony Announces PSP-3000

Over at Sony’s conference at the Leipzig Games Convention 2008, SCEE’s David Reeves has just announced the PSP-3000 model.

The model is newer, slimmer, and lighter, and will have an “enhanced LCD screen”, meaning more colors. “Crisper colours with more intesity when outside in the natural light,” he said. A built in microphone is in the new PSP as well.

It will launch in European territories on October 15th for 199 euros.
