The short life of PSP-3000 also called PSP-"Brite"

After the announcement of launching PSP-3000 or the PSP-"Brite" due to its more vibrant screen, many gamers are concerned about the battery life span of the PSP 3000. For them more vibran screen will mean shortening the 5 hour battery life of the PSP 3000. Usually the display is one of the biggest component of any gaming system that drains power of batteries. Concerns were further raised when news went out that Sony is pulling the official first-party extended life battery pack from shelves. This means that gamers would not be able to buy a bigger battery that can compensate for the larger drain on power caused by brighter screen on the new PSP 3000.

Sony clarified that gamers can still enjoy the new PSP 3000 like the current PSP slim which is about 4 to 6 hours for games. This will surely make every PSP fan think twice before getting the new PSP 3000. I know that it's worth having a more clearer and vibrant screen but would it be enough if i can only enjoy the PSP 3000 in less than 5 hours? Even the current 5 hour lifespan of the current PSP is not enough for me and I am sure I will not enjoy the the new PSP 3000 if it will have a battery life span of less than 5 hours!

“Following an interview we recently did with Gamespot. I’d like to make a correction and clarify that the new PSP will have equivalent battery life to the current PSP, about 4 to 6 hours for games and about 4 to 5 hours for UMD videos. While the enhanced screen of the new PSP draws a little more power, our engineers in Japan worked to reduce the power consumption of the overall system including its components, so you won’t have to worry about losing any time when enjoying the more vibrant visuals displayed with the new PSP.”
