Sony reveals Ice White PSP-E1000

Budget PSP out July for £90.

Sony has revealed the Ice White PSP-E1000, due out in July for £90.

That is: £89.99 or €99.99.

"The Ice White PSP-E1000 is a great value summer gaming essential and the best way to access the entire PSP catalogue of games," Sony Computer Entertainment Europe product manager Mayumi Donovan wrote on the EU PlayStation Blog.

"With a great range of accompanying PSP Essential titles that will be available for £9.99 / €9.99 (RRP) each, there has never been a better time to game on the go and enjoy immersive high quality gaming experiences at an affordable price."

With PS Vita nearly half a year into its life, Sony has refocused PSP to appeal to a younger audience. The E1000 was announced last summer as its budget PSP, and comes in slightly larger than the PSP-3000 (172.4 × 73.4 × 21.6 mm compared to 169.4 x 71.4 x 18.6 mm) weighing a tad more, (223g including its battery pack, compared with just 189g).

UMD support remains intact however, and its screen size is the same as the existing PSP-3000 model. Sony suggested PSP newcomers try InviZimals, Invizimals: Shadow Zone and EyePet.
