PSP-3000 Announced; Official Press Release provides many Details

50°
336w ago - At Sony's ongoing conference at Games Convention 2008 in Leipzig, SCEE president David Reeves announced that the long-rumored PSP-3000 goes on sale this fall worldwide, pinning an October 15 date for EMEA territories.

As expected, the new model is a hardware refresh, adding a built-in microphone, as well as an enhanced LCD screen with significantly less glare and more vibrant colors. Cosmetically, the PSP-3000 sports slightly smoother curves compared to the design of the current Slim & Lite revision.

It'll ship in eight separate hardware bundle packages in Europe, with each priced at 199€.

For those of us outside of Europe, SCEA has confirmed that the PSP-3000 will be sold initially in North America through the previously announced Ratchet & Clank Entertainment Pack on October 14, as well as a new 4GB Entertainment Pack due out in November.

Both packs will cost $199.99. A standalone pack with the updated model, still priced at $169.99, will be available "later this year."

PS3 Downloading Speed Much Faster Than 360

500°
336w ago - As you may know, I own both the 360 and PS3 systems and I was testing out which download was faster just to let people know about this.

So as I was downloading Wall-E on the 360, it took me 1 hour and a half, and when I tried to download it on the PS3 it took no less then 45 minutes.

So we all know now that downloading games on the PS3 is faster than downloading them on the 360. So now is the time for Microsoft to concentrate on the download speed for their next dashboard update!

The reason I did this comparison was because I just wanted to know if it was only just for me, or the rest of the 360 and PS3 customers.

Stay tuned for more comparisons between the PS3 and 360.
