[TR] Sony PSP-4000 releasing in 2009  

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Quote:
Hot on the heals of the recent PSP 3000 launch, Sony plans to refresh the PlayStation Portable yet again in 2009 with the planned release of (yep, you guessed it) the PSP-4000 model.

The news comes courtesy of unnamed games publishing sources talking to Eurogamer.net, who suggest that Sony will follow the PSP-3000 next year with another 'iterative approach'.

If so, this means that the recently rumoured PSP mark 2 might not be seen by gamers until 2010 at the very earliest.

Rumour, speculation, no comments

Sony UK, as ever, said it would not comment on rumour and speculation.

TechRadar will be bringing you more news on the future plans for the PSP from CES in glorious Las Vegas in January.

Geez, how many different versions of the PSP do we need?

Although from the screenshots I've seen, the interlacing in the PSP-3000 is terrible...maybe they're doing this new model to fix that.

I think this could be it, also to compete against the new nintendo DS:i which is selling like absolute hotcakes in japan. Last I heard, you simply cannot get a hold of one. But yeah, hopefully they take better care this time around, I know someone who got burned by buying the 3000, and he's none too happy. If sony makes another huge blunder, people will avoid psp refreshes like a plague.

I have PSP-1000 and the speakers are horrible. Reminds me of those crappy mono channel tunes from the early console era. Are the speakers better on new models?

I wonder if they'll actually release it as PSP-4000 or rename it to something else in order to skip the dreaded number 4.

By the time this comes out, it may be time for me to buy a PSP (Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, and Final Fantasy Agito XIII).

Sure, but minor and largely transparent-to-consumers changes to the hardware are different than rebranding the unit and selling it as a different SKU.

i wish people didn't settle for various yet analogous reiterations of the same damn products over and over...psp, ds, gba i mean seriously, everything they did over time couldve been done from the beginning, and it cuts down on innovation of entirely new products badly
