Sony announces new PSP E-1000 for just €99 Today at their gamescom press conference, Sony Europe has announced the launch of a new PSP, dubbed the E-1000, which will sell for just €99.
Additionally, the company says it will relaunch some UMD titles like FIFA 12 and Invizimals as "PSP Essentials" for just €9.99.

In order to hit the sub-€100 mark, Sony has slashed Wi-Fi from the handheld. You better enjoy playing single player campaigns.

The design and form factor are slightly different as well, with a matte feel and "charcoal" color seen on the slim PS3s.

Sony says the console is only available in PAL regions, at least for now.

If it gets hacked it could be useful as many things...so it isn't necessarily 100% useless.

Sony's view: You can't hack us if your system doesn't have wifi
