E3: Sony makes the PSP sleeker

In conjunction with a global announcement, Sony announced the availability of a new PSP (PlayStationPortable) that has a more streamlined form factor and a video-out port, offered for the first time in this territory in two exciting new PSP Entertainment Packs. PSP “Ice Silver” will be included in the limited-edition Daxter PSP Entertainment Pack, available in September. Also, a collector’s edition PSP “Ceramic White,” including a Darth Vader silk-screen on the unit, as well as the PSP exclusive title, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, will be featured in Star Wars Battlefront PSP Entertainment Pack, launching in October.

PSP Entertainment Packs with the new colors, revealed at the E3 Media & Business Summit, will be available for $199.99 (Rs 8,000 approx). A new PSP comes in three basic colors of “Piano Black”, “Ceramic White”, and “Ice Silver” to meet a variety of lifestyle and preferences for all ages.

The first newly designed PSP that will be released in North America is the limited-edition Daxter PSP Entertainment Pack, which will be available on September 10 and provide users with everything they need to enjoy the ultimate in portable entertainment, right out of the box. This package will feature a PSP in “Ice Silver” along with the award-winning, action-packed game, Daxter; the hit TV comedy from 20th Century Fox, “Family Guy – The Freakin’ Sweet Collection” on UMD(TM) (Universal Media Disc); and a 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo(TM), for storing photos, music, video clips and more.

The limited-release Star Wars Battlefront PSP Entertainment Pack, available on October 9, will allow owners to experience their favorite Star Wars battles any way — and anywhere — they want with a special “Ceramic White” PSP featuring a silk-screened image of Darth Vader on the back of the unit. Also included is Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, the next chapter of the best-selling Star Wars Battlefront series from LucasArts. Set during the Original Trilogy era, the game is the previously untold story of a ragtag ensemble of battle-hardened rogues and scoundrels assembled by Han Solo. Now for the first time ever in Star Wars Battlefront, you can customize your character, select your weapons, choose your abilities and create a different experience every time you play. A stand-alone version of Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron will also be available on October 9.
