Default Psp 3000


Quote:
Sony officially unveiled the PSP 3000 Wednesday at the Leipzig Games Convention in Germany, confirming rumors that had popped up online in recent weeks. But before you get excited (or--if you just bought a PSP--exasperated), note that this appears to be an even more subtle upgrade than the slimmed-down PSP 2000 that debuted in September 2007. The main changes, according to Sony:

* An antireflective screen, "which enables users to see the screen more clearly in well-lit places, even when used outdoors." [Update (08/21/2008): According to Engadget Japan (as translated by sister site PSPfanboy), the screen improvements don't stop at the antireflective screen. Sony has apparently also doubled the response time, improved the contrast ratio, and bumped up the color gamut.]

* A built-in microphone, which will allow users to use voice features in certain games and use the PSP's built-in Skype functionality without the need for a mic-enabled headset.

* The addition of 480i output for gameplay when the PSP is connected to a TV screen via a composite or S-Video cable. (The previous model only allowed playback at 480p, effectively restricting the usefulness of the feature to newer HDTVs with component video inputs.)

The PSP 3000 is expected to hit stores worldwide (Japan, Asia, North America, and Europe) in October, with some markets getting up to three colors: black, pearl white, and silver. Pricing and bundles weren't disclosed, but we're guessing Sony will stick with the tried and true $169 barebones/$199 bundle price points that have helped propel the handheld's strong sales.

Personally, if the antireflective screen works as advertised, I might actually be tempted to upgrade--but reflective screens are a major pet peeve of mine. What do you think: is the PSP 3000 a worthwhile upgrade, or are you still holding out for the "real" PSP 2? Or are you a hard-core DS fan instead--or possibly using the iPhone/iPod Touch as your portable gaming platform of choice? Share your thoughts below.

Okay, lol, I'm an avid Nintendo fan, but I'm planning to get a PSP soon. The thing is, with me, graphics are what really attract me to games and consoles. After admiring the graphics, I get to analyzing the gameplay. If that's bad, then I don't play it. Unless I was informed beforehand that a game with not-up-to-par-with-my-standards graphics had great gameplay, I wouldn't have given it a second look.

But I digress. The DS, which I already own, doesn't possess the polished look in its graphics that the PSP does. While the DS has graphics comparable to the old-generation PlayStation and Nintendo 64, the PSP has graphics practically on par with the PlayStation 2. A feast for the eyes.

However, I'll wait for the PSP 2 (for more major improvements, perhaps graphics). Maybe by then, there will be more games that are as fun as some of the DS games I own. ^^ I purchased a DS (as opposed to the PSP) a few years ago because I heard it had games that were much more enjoyable than the PSP's. But yeah, I want that PSP 2 to come out soon so that I might have a chance of buying one. :] (Maybe I'll sell a few old DS games to garner up enough money.) Besides, my DS has a dead pixel, and that's unsightly. At least when I buy a PSP, I'll make sure to get a flawless one (And I'll return as many as I have to in order to find the right one!).

Maybe if my PSP brakes, the worrenty on it is expired, and the PSP 2 isn't out, maybe. Those aren't really major upgrades worth buying a whole another PSP unit for.

Dissidia FF bundle is enough to get me to get one of these.

Plus the Anti-glare will prove to be useful

I got a PSP, the first one. I mainly use it for emulation (PSX on PSP ftw), although I was playing Yggdra Union yesterday on it.

I'm probably going to get PSP 2 because it's going to be technologically superior, and this means the Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube can be emulated on it.

(If you're asking why I put Saturn in there, it's because the Saturn is extremely difficult to emulate.)

Not excited.
I <3 my PSP 1000 as it is.
I would rather just get a bargain on a PSP 2000 for like 50$ or something than go for 3000.
Although I'm not a fan of the slim design, I prefer the fat bulky feel.
Thin just feels too fake.
