When the limited edition lilac Hannah Montana PSP 3000 bundle was announced, I couldn't help but go on a bit of a rant about its sexist splash of color — although I don't think throwing Miley Cyrus' alter ego, Hannah Montana, into the mix helped out the situation either. Don't get me wrong, I love color, so the fact that Sony is coming out with a PSP 3000 in pink and turquoise this November, I feel like they've somewhat redeemed themselves. I'll let the pink slide on this one, but the turquoise? Perfection, and it will be available in a LittleBigPlanet bundle. . . total perfection. Are you liking the new colors?
I'm a fan of the PSP. It's got some amazing graphic capabilities, and since one of my favorite games is on the PSP, it's totally handy to have with me when I travel. But if I'm being honest, the PSP does have its drawbacks; most notably being the screen glare! I love that I can watch movies more comfortably than I could with my iPod, but contorting the console to get the best angle while on the go is kind of a bummer.
So the announcement of the spruced-up PSP, called the PSP 3000 – which will hit European markets in October – has me anticipating an upgrade. The $250 dollar PSP 3000 will have an improved LCD screen with reduced glare, so I can play games and watch videos outside comfortably, and will also boast a built-in mic for all those Skype calls I'll be making.
Since I'm still not sure how many of you own a PSP, tell me, will you buy a PSP 3000 when it hits the States?
