Sony’s Play Station Portable, a handheld gaming device is one of the coolest gadgets to have. But it faces a tough competition from Nintendo DS, with the DS having titles such as Pokemon and Mario series. On the other hand, Sony’s PS3 is also facing a tough competition from Nintendo Wii in sales as Wii has become very popular everywhere. In order to improve the sales of PSP, Sony is going to launch a new improved version of PSP in Japan on October 16.
The new PSP-3000 will have a better Liquefied Crystal display and will also have an inbuilt microphone for voice recording. Design wise i don’t see much of a change compared to the previous model. One of the reasons for the popularity of the PSP has been its many functions. Not only can you play games, you can listen to music, watch videos, movies and can also access the Internet from anywhere using the Wifi. And you can also use it to play multiplayer games with your friends who also own the WiFi. Sony’s sales of the PSP has almost doubled from the previous year and they will be looking to capitalize on that with the new version. Sony are also planing to release a service for PSP in the future which will allow PSP owners to play multiplayer games even if they are not in the same room through the use of Internet.
It will be launched at the same price of the previous model i.e. $180. First it will be launched in Japan followed by US and Europe. It will be available in piano black, mystic silver and pearl white color. Sony have also planned a few entertainment packs to be released for the PSP. Lets see how well it competes with Nintendo DS.
