PSP 3000 To Have Worse Battery Life, But Sony Takes Note

Illustration for article titled PSP 3000 To Have Worse Battery Life, But Sony Takes Note

The PSP 3000 will have a brighter LCD with a wider color gamut and 5 times the contrast ratio of the PSP 2000. From the shots we've seen, it blows the old screen away-and that screen was already pretty decent. There is, of course, a catch. And that catch is that the PSP will lose somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes of battery life compared to the old PSP, putting its playtime to 3 1/2 to 4 hours. But to compensate, Sony will be rereleasing the just-discontinued PSP extended battery to the market which should still provide 8-10 hours of play. UPDATE: Sony has done an abrupt about-face on the battery issue. [Gamespot via Maxconsole]
