We are all expecting the PS Vita to land in November of this year and the PSP-3000 that we have today will disappear. It’s really time for the PSP-3000 to leave; it was never that great a portable console to begin with. Sony needs something that will compete with the Nintendo DS and 3DS. Whether or not the PS Vita will compete we can’t say at this point.
Sony has three new value bundles for the PSP-3000 that are coming to stores in Japan on July 28. All three of the bundles are the same except for the color. They will sell for 17,800 yen in Japan. The difference in the three will be the hue with piano black, vibrant blue, and pink blossoms colors. The console bundles will include a few extras.
The value packs will come with a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo storage card for save games and more. The devices will also have a storage pouch and a cleaning cloth. I can’t tell from the sketchy translation from Japanese and the tiny photo Sony offered if the storage pouch or the cleaning cloth is the color of the PSP. I am betting the storage pouch is. There is no word on availability outside Japan.Filed Under: Gadgets News, Gaming News
