    From Kotaku




    I say this is pretty awesome news and almost confirms Dark Alex's earlier findings when trying to make a CFW for 3.80. I can't find the article on QJ but it seems that when he was looking through the firmware, he saw something indicating to a 3rd gen PSP similar to when he did an earlier firmware, after which the 2nd gen PSP got released.

    But I'm still pretty sceptical seeing as a new PSP would've probably been announced at E3.

    Tired of all this 'will they?', 'wont they?' bullshit. Sony, get it out already so I can finally decide whether to get a slim or wait for this fucker. [​IMG]

    Damn right! And do you guys think this one will be pandora-proof? I'm really surprised they didn't do that with the slim. And Sony DID say they were working on ways to combat piracy...

    Meh, I'm happy with my phat. I'll only buy this if it's able to support stronger homebrews, otherwise there's no reason for me to get one.

    Too soon. It'd take away sales from the slim.

    But yeah, I'm sick of this TBA nonsense Sony uses. Just announce a specific nationwide US release date for PSN cards already! [​IMG]

    I dont have my slim that long and now i read this.

    Well, i wont buy this since the only function i want is a built in microphone.

    Im still curious. Will this support more and better homebrew? More functions(aside from the cellphone function)?
    Ill keep an eye on this.

    I bet there going to put that new chip in that "stops piracy" if its true. Maybe they'll add more features to it though?

    I do believe sony will try their best to stop piracy. But i also believe bypassing those securities will be possible.

    Sony's response: "No comment"

    not getting one, unless they come up with 1080p graphics. I think it will be much harder to hack this time, look at the ps3.

    What about the PS5 and the XBOX 720. they are probably done with prototypes of both, but no games are going to even be made for them untill a year or 2 before release >_> (2012-2015?)

    What is it with the rumors of a new DS and PSP for this generation? I mean, as far as I know not even consoles got a level 3 upgrade for one single generation...

    That and that's just bad business practice. I mean, the DSLite and PSP-2000 series came a reasonable time after the releases of their original models, but all of a sudden there's talk of a third DS and PSP already? Too soon. For next gen, yeah I can understand talks of a new type of system, but even then, they'd probably keep it under wraps for a little bit longer.

    the chinese are known for making cheap knock offs so i'm not surprised if they made the psp case for these pictures too.

    Consoles was the key word here, yo. ;P Though yeah, I was going to make reference to the Micro since it's one of the bigger gaming market failures in recent memory. I mean, you don't release a third iteration of a successful handheld system, then the next week (exaggeration here) announce the handheld's successor.

    Edit: And yes, I am someone who owns an original GameBoy, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color, and one GameBoy Advanced. At least I wised up in time to not get reiterated systems by the time they started to go hung-ho with them. Anymore, I'm looking to wait even for the next-gen systems since they'll easily have something new in the next two years after its launch, meaning a new system for me, and games for a lower price.

    You said 'not even'. As in, it's more likely that a console would get 2 redesigns than if a handheld did.
