- News is making it's rounds on the Internet the next iteration of the PlayStation Portable, dubbed herein as "PSP 3G, is on the way.
Allegedly, it will get 3G support across the globe and will hit during April, 2009.
To quote: Don't get your hopes up, folks, but there is something of a rumor stemming from NeoGAF about the next iteration of the PlayStation Portable, dubbed herein as "PSP 3G:"
// Producer, SCEA: Also well known as the PSP-4000 or the PSP2, the new PSP model will be called PSP 3G. Unlike previous PSP models it will have a Touch Screen as well as an UMTS support, Bluetooth and a microphone. That means you will be able to use it easily as a normal mobile phone.
With its ultra compact size and design it will be not much bigger than an iPhone but it will offer you the highest gaming comfort. There wont be any UMD-drive any more but instead a keyboard with a slide mechanism though.
But of course, you will be able to download all the games From The PSN Store with the PSP 3G soon. Cooperating with Sony Ericsson, we will be able to deliver the PSP 3G in the USA and Japan by the end of April 2009. First pictures will follow tomorrow.
So, yeah. I think someone was duped somewhere. If you see this pop up, don't buy into it unless we see something more official.
