Sony To Introduce New, Cheaper PSP Model Without Wi-Fi [Update]


While Sony are moving on to the PlayStation Vita as their next portable platform, they’re trying to turn the existing PSP into a wider-reaching platform. This involves a new PSP model, they announced at their Gamescom presentation today.


This fall, Sony will introduce a new PSP model with a new look, pictured above. The new model will not include Wi-Fi functionality, and will cost 99 Euros.
