cadoo -> PSP-3000 Launches in Japan Next Month (9/2/2008 2:12:13 PM)

Sony said on Tuesday it will launch a new model of its PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld machine on October 16 in Japan, its latest bid to challenge Nintendo's market-leading DS.

The PSP-3000, unveiled in August, comes with a built-in microphone and advanced liquid crystal display (LCD) panel that is better suited for use outdoors and offers a shorter response time than the existing machine.

A quicker response makes moving pictures look seamless and natural, while the process of making phone calls on the PSP becomes easier with the built-in microphone. The PSP already supports a Skype Web phone function.

The new machine will sell for 19,800 yen ($182), the same price as the current PSP model and compared with 16,800 yen for the DS.

Sony sold 3.72 million units of the PSP in April-June worldwide, while Nintendo's DS sold 6.94 million units.
