The new PSP-3000 will soon be released and listed here are the features of the new PSP-3000 compare to the old (ouch!) PSP.
1. The screen of the new PSP-3000 is noticeably brighter. If you also have a PSP slim like me, i bet one of your complaints is its outdoor performance. Sony has increased the screen's brightness and colour gamut of the new PSP-3000 which makes the screen noticeably more vibrant, less prone to glare and movies and photos look more realistic.
2. The new PSP-3000 features a built-in microphone for the first time which makes Skype internet calls easier. The built-in microphone of the new PSP-3000 can also be used in games such as the shooter US Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo and the language translation game TalkMan.
3. If you enjoy playing on the big screen the new PSP-3000 can now plugged into any TV, including non-HD models, so you can play games on the big screen.
Other noticeable changes includes a smaller chrome ring on the back and a PlayStation logo on the Home button. According Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and New Zealand managing director Michael Ephraim says the changes they made to the new PSP - 3000 are not designed to convince the current users of PSP slim to upgrade their consoles, but are part of Sony's larger plan for the PSP.
