PSP-3000 gets UK date, price

Brighter screen for 150 quid.

Sony has told Eurogamer that the PSP-3000 will launch here on 17th October and cost GBP 149.99.

That makes the slightly redesigned model around 10 pounds more expensive than the existing Slim & Lite hardware being replaced.

However, those super keen for the brighter screen and built-in microphone will be able to buy a silver PSP-3000 bundled with Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters two days earlier for around EUR 199.

This will be followed in "early November" by a 4GB memory entertainment pack bundled with a black PSP-3000 for the same price.

Manufacture of the Slim & Lite PSP will come to a halt sometime this month; Sony Europe boss David Reeves also previously told us there may be time-limited price cut to help clear this model from shop shelves.
