Ask PSP Fanboy: Volume 26

Ask PSP Fanboy is back with an all new edition. Every weekend, PSP Fanboy will answer your burning questions. If you have a question for the team, send an e-mail to andrew @ with the subject "Ask PSP Fanboy."

Q: When is the PSP Lite coming out in North America? Every other region has announced dates/pricing/colors, but we haven't heard a peep!
A: Incorrect -- we've had a launch window all along: September. On September 10th, the limited-edition Daxter PSP Entertainment Pack will be available. This package will include an "Ice Silver" PSP, Daxter, "Family Guy - The Freakin' Sweet Collection" on UMD, and a 1GB Memory Stick. On October 9th, the limited-edition Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron PSP Entertainment Pack will be available. This package will include a "Ceramic White" PSP with Darth Vadar on the back, and a copy of Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron. Finally, the standard "Piano Black" system will be available in September.

Q: I was wondering if the XMB on the new PSP has changed.
A: Other than the features we mentioned at E3, there aren't significant changes to the XMB. Most, if not all, of the features of firmware 3.60 seem to apply to the new PSP. We won't know until we get our hands on the final 3.60 firmware.

Q: Will there be a Halo for the PSP?
A: We'd love to see Microsoft's FPS game arrive on PSP -- but we don't think that'll happen any time soon. Maybe during the apocalypse?

Q: Why is the Youtube-PSP converter down so much?
A: It takes a lot of computing power to make these converters work ... something the owners of simply don't have. As an alternative, did you know that the latest version of PSP Video 9 now supports YouTube conversions?

Q; Do you think Sony will make some type of Video-Out for early adaptors of the PSP?
A: If there were an easy way to do it, Sony (or hackers) would've done it by now. Unfortunately, all Video-Out attempts on PSP have been cumbersome, ineffective, or both. The best option we can find involves literally tearing open your PSP and doing a lengthy installation ... and even then, it's not an easy product to find.
