Exhibited at E3 2007, the new PSP will be 30% lighter and 19% thinner. In other words, it’s been reduced from 280g to 189g and the thickness from 23mm to 18.6mm.
New features include a new video out port allowing anything being displayed on the PSP to be outputted onto a TV. Cables will be sold separately and the choices will be an AV�?S-Video, D-Terminal AV, or Component AV cable.
A new caching system will supposedly help improve UMD loading times but, I think games will have to be written to load ahead first if this is going to work. Apart from this new memory system, there are apparently no other hardware changes.
Last but not least, you can now officially charge your PSP via a USB port.
3 colours will be available being Piano Black (PSP-2000 PB), Ceramic White (PSP-2000 CW), and “Ice Silver (PSP-2000 IS)”.
DJ Max Portable on the big screen would be so much fun although I’m not so sure about the output quality! Besides that and a lighter PSP, not very impressive for changes.
