PSP redesign revealed; Lighter, slimmer, lasts longer

What a way to kick off the Sony E3 Press Conference. Kaz Hirai has revealed that a new version of the PSP has been redesigned, ready to be released in September. So, what's new in this version? Good question. Check it out:
  • 33% lighter
  • 19% slimmer
  • improved battery life
  • video output
  • same screen as the current version
  • still supports UMDs
From what we could see, it didn't seem that much slimmer, but I guess we'll find out when we get our hands on it. Overall the new design looks very similar to the curren one. It'll be worth it just for the increased battery life and video out support. The new PSP will be come in several designs. Piano black, Ice Silver, Felicia Blue, Lavender Purple, Rose Pink and a special pure white version with a picture of Darth Vader on the front. They will be released in bundles. One with a 1GB memory stick and Daxter and the other with the Family Guy "Freakin' Sweet" UMD. The Darth Vader design will be released in a bundle with Star Wars Battlefront. Each pack will cost $199. Great value.

The new PSP will also feature improved data streaming abilities to lower load times and will be able to charge its battery via USB. Sounds great to us! Will you be picking one up when it's released in September? If so, what colour?
