At E3 2007, Sony released information that a new version of the PlayStation Portable, known as the PSP Slim & Lite. The new PSP was 33% lighter (reduced to 189 grams from 280 grams) and 19% slimmer than the original PSP system. The model numbers have changed to PSP-2000, following the previous region-based numbering scheme (cf. the PSP-1000 numbering scheme of the "old" PSP model).

Specifications

  • Better Wi-Fi connection
  • Faster loading times by storing UMD data in temporary memory.
  • Internal memory (RAM) increase from 32 MB to 64 MB
  • Improved battery life due to lower power consumption, and battery

recharge over the USB data connection. However the old, higher-capacity PSP battery will still be compatible and using it will give an increased battery life, but the battery cover will not close when using the old battery due to the larger size.

  • Weight has been reduced by 33%
  • Unit is 19% narrower (slimmer) in thickness
  • A video-out port for displaying on a TV.
  • Improved responsiveness of d-pad[1] and buttons, confirmed in the

GameSpot "hands-on" review; "several GameSpot editors have noticed that the d-pad and buttons on the new PSP provide a little more tactile feedback for a better overall feel."[2]

  • WiFi switch moved to the top of the console. * New UMD loading

tray design.

  • Removal of the infra-red port.
  • Speakers repositioned on the front of the PSP near the top of the

screen which makes it look different from the 1000 system

  • Memory Stick slot has been relocated

The PSP-2000 models will use the same screen as the PSP-1000 models.[3]

Variants

The initial North American PSP release will include the colors Piano Black and Ice Silver. The Piano Black version is currently set to be priced at $169.99.
