    Watch the Sony Press Conference. http://www.g4tv.com/e32007/spotlight.html

    Looks almost identical to the old/current mode. Same size screen, still has UMD slot, but games apparently load faster. 19% slimmer, 33% lighter, battery life longer. Can output PSP video to TV screen, for watching movies etc...
    Will be available in Black. Silver bundle also available with Daxtar, UMD movie, "The Family Guy Frickin' Sweet Collection and 1GB Pro Duo. Will retail for $199, available in September. White Star Wars branded PSP also unveiled by Chewbaka... >_>;

    Edited for correctness.

    Looks like they moved the speakers to the sides of the screen too.

    When they are not satisfied with the new psp's sales, they will just *ahem* accidentally put another exploit working on the new psp inside a newly released game, maybe god of war [​IMG]

    19% slimmer? 4.4 mm [​IMG]
    Looks fine, I guess, too bad there's no second analog stick.

    Analog stick will probably be the same piece of crap as before.

    Be nice to play the emulators through the TV instead of on the screen.

    Oh it will be, as someone else said "accidentally". I reckon this "accident" won't be with God of War but on a game that won't sell so well.

    PSP Lite that would be funny. PSP slim would be most likely.

    Why didn't they move the analog nub to the right side?

    Stupid Sony, making a revision of the PSP and all it does is load games faster and is lighter itself.

    looks as 2 of the rumors about this psp slim (or what ever they call it) are not true, or at least we're never mentioned. that being the 2x faster UMD read times and on board flash memory. i had one (was stolen, along lots of over things this last christmas)... but i don't plan to replace it as I played my DS more when i had my PSP anyway.
