PSP-3000 coming to the UK Sony has announced more details for the UK launch of the updated PSP-3000 handheld console.
According to Sony Europe boss David Reeves the handheld will hit the region on October 17th and cost GBP 149.99. The new model will only cost about GBP 10 more than the current Slim and Lite hardware SKU giving consumers options when they go out to buy the PSP.

The PSP-3000 has a silver finish and a brighter screen as well as a built-in microphone. Europe has the option to buy the PSP-3000 bundle with Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters for EUR 199.

For the same price you can purchase an "entertainment" bundle which includes a 4GB memory card but no game for the same price.

The Slim and Lite PSP will be phased out added David Reeves who said there might be a limited time price cut on the model to help clear the shelves.

by adding another analog stick the games would have to be adjusted. another analog stick will probably come with a completely new psp model which might take different games.

Not a bad time to pick up the Slim and Lite PSP. Nothing real exciting for the "new model."

Thanks Sony.

Its still compatable if they add a new analog, it would just be disabled when playing a regular psp game
