Sony PSP E-1000 aimed at teens


SCEE chief Jim Ryan says a sub-£90 PSP will grow the platform’s audience and draw in the younger consumer.
 
“At €99/£89 it will make a great Christmas gift. It’s a device to play UMD games. It’s all for the audience. If we are going to take PSP very young – teens and much younger – they are happy to just play the game. If taking wi-fi out is the price to pay, we’re happy to. The €99 price tag is a real barrier that we’ve got under which will help us lift off. PSone fans upgraded to PS2, and the first adopters of PS3 were PS2 owners. So the form factor might speak to that, but it happens regardless. PlayStation has an army of followers.”

PSP comics


Sony released it's latest and final electronic comics shop update for that Sony Playstation Portable, shuttering its online store with simply over 4000 comics available to select from. No reason was handed for the actual closure, however the pending appearance of Sony's next-generation portable system, PS Vita, could be described as a factor within the decision.

"This week would be the final revise for electronic comics about the PSP, inch said Gracie Chen, director from the PlayStation Shop, through the site's blog. ""The Digital Comics Team will continue to work on bringing the comic service to other Sony devices. We'll make sure to keep you updated with any future developments right here on the PlayStation Blog."
