Rumour Alert - New PSP Slide Screen?

Apparently so according to "highly trusted sources". The PSP is labeled the PSP-4000, and will have a sliding screen.

This seems like a good idea to me - Sony have been struggling slightly with their PSP, and the trendy new look will perhaps appeal to the people who don't want games, but would like a very nice screen to watch movies on. It's also, of course, nice for gamers who can now play in much higher resolution than in the past.

Alas, I get ahead of myself. Whether this rumour is true, is yet to be seen.


  1. If this happens it would be awesome, it means we could have 2 sticks which would clear up control issues with a lot of PSP games and they could look into getting a better battery for the PSP. 3 hours of playtime is not a good thing.

  2. I also heard there will be a PSP version of Little Big Planet.

  3. You heard correctly!
    There's currently LBP, Motorstorm and Assassin's Creed... All coming out on PSP

  4. I really hope this hits the shop. Imagine using it to view movies downloaded from the PSN Store as you catch a bus or train to Scotland for the day, carry it around listening to your mp3s and then slide the controls open to play Silent Hill PS1, Resi Evil PS1, Motorstorm, LBP or the Assassins Creed packs in some free time. Then, by using Remote Play, you could access your PS3 Tv and movie collection via wifi from any location in the world when settling down in your bed at night.

  5. this is cool! hi son!
