PSPE-1000 Specifications Revealed

News PSP Sony

The Playstation Vita isn’t the only handheld Sony will be releasing in the next 12 months. At Gamescom, Sony revealed the 5th iteration of its first handheld, the Playstation Portable (read here for the announcement). Not much was known except for the price, which comes at 99 euros. Some more specifications have been revealed, however, via the UK Playstation site.

The notable differences from the PSP-3000 (and earlier models) would be the lack of wifi, however, the PSPE-1000 is also considerably heavier than the 3000, thus a little bulkier. The PSP-3000 weighs in 189 grams. The PSPE-1000 weighs in The PSPE-1000 will also sport a monaural speaker. Earlier models supported stereo speakers.

The model has only been announced for the European and PAL markets, which means Australia and New Zealand will also be receiving it. It will see a release in the autumn/spring of 2011.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
