The PSP-3000 has been announced. It was the first announcement made. The PSP-3000, also known as the Slim and Lite. It will have a built-in mic and a new LCD screen. The new screen will improve the color display and reduce glare. (I’m sold). This will be released first in Europe on October 15th.

David Reeves has also announced a 160GB PS3. It will be released on Halloween. No word on a release in other territories at this time. PS3fanboy is reporting that the 160GB PS3 will not have PS2 BC.


The 160GB PS3 will come with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, a voucher for Pain, and a DualShock 3. It will function exactly like the newly announced/released 80GB PS3. That means no PS2 BC. You do get twice the HDD space. It will retail for $499.99

The PSP-3000 will come with a 4GB memory stick pro duo or the Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters entertainment pack. 4GB is a lot of space. (I’m buying this model even though I recently purchased a PSP-2000. I’m giving it to…you guessed it, my brother). These packs will still cost $199.99 and eventually you will be able to purchase the PSP-3000 hardware alone for $169.99.
