    PSP-3000 will have a built-in microphone and, more importantly, an improved LCD screen that can display more colours with less glare. And much less ghosting too, perhaps? Hopefully.

    Out in October. How long till it'll be hackable then? Because that'll probably be the only that will stop me from getting one.

    There's a few sources around, but some of the sites seem to be down. It'll be better after the Sony conference is over.

    Regardless of any updates I'm sticking to my PSP-1001... I've had it for years and I don't see then need for a new one. What I want is a PSP2 or something, not just another update to the PSP.

    However, it would be nice if I had a Slim.

    Yeah, I already bought a headset for my games, I don't want such a built in microphone, other things will interfere with it. [​IMG] I got my headset already.
    NOW, if there was a second joystick... [​IMG] And anyways, red is the best color out there. [​IMG]

    Couldn't care less about the built-in microphone, however the improved screen is certainly intriguing. Depends how improved it is though, might just turn out to be something that most people won't even notice.

    Either way, I'm glad I held off buying a PSP Slim this week.

    If it really did have a noticably better screen. I'm sure people with the slim would just buy the psp3000 screen and put it in their psp2000. I know I would. I could care less about the mic.

    I must say, I really do like the matte colour.

    In your neighborhood.
    Sony just screwed anyone who bought a PSP in the past year.

    Thanks Sony!

    And I just got my Slim in June. >_< This one will probably be unhackable..so they say. But nothing is unhackable.

    Hmm, why do they update the System again. Wasn`t the last psp-version released a year or some month ago? I think these new features belong in the slim&lite version of the psp.

    But as it is already state in this thread there could be a price drop resulting because of this new psp-version.

    And the name...3000! I mean like what where they thinkin` [​IMG]

    I for one am underwhelmed. Though I already have a PSP that I can use well enough, this doesn't warrant a completely new x000 series. This is like a "oh shit, we forgot about these parts, teehee buy moar plz" on Sony's part.

    Not to mention my birthday is in October, so I can get one as a present! Hopefully... lol.
