Last week, when Sony revealed the new, streamlined PSP-E1000 at Gamescom, details were a little slim (just like the redesigned handheld!). Now though, we know all about this shiny, trimmed-down version, which has axed wifi capabilities in order to achieve a lower selling price.
It’s also – more surprisingly – scrapped on-board stereo sound. You’ll still get full two-speaker glory if you plug in a pair of headphones (or, presumably, a set of stereo speakers), but the device itself is the first to feature a single built-in speaker. Another interesting, cost-cutting measure – but do gamers want to sacrifice quality and experience to save a few bucks?
The PSP-E1000 will set you back a recommended €99, US$99, or AUD $140 depending on your location.
