Default More PSP-4000 Rumours.

Doubt anyone's even reading these threads now, but either way...

Quote:
... The next iteration of Sony's PSP handheld will feature a sliding screen, will no longer carry a UMD drive and will allow shoulder button-only games to be played when the screen is in its 'closed' position.

That's according to a development source close to Sony, speaking to Eurogamer on condition of anonymity. We first broke the news of a new update to the system late last year, revealing that PSP-4000, the third incremental hardware revision of the console, is planned for release later this year.

While Sony has refused to comment so far, further rumours have emerged in the past week claiming that 4000 will represent the first major overhaul of the system, with a sliding screen added and the UMD drive removed.

Our development source today confirmed these reports, adding: "The screen is basically the same as the one in the 3000 - except it slides." When 'closed', we were told, the screen won't cover the entire face of the console, but the unit will be "significantly smaller in width" as a result.

With the console in its 'closed' state, most controls will be inaccessible. However, our source claims that games which use the shoulder buttons exclusively - such as LocoRoco - will be playable, as these inputs will still be accessible. It's expected that the unit can also be used for media playback in this configuration.

Eurogamer further understands Sony is approaching developers for ideas for games that only require the shoulder buttons.

Sony said this afternoon it does not comment on rumour or speculation.

I think it's pretty much confirmed now. The rumours are spreading like mad, and Sony aren't denying it's existence.

I'm glad, I think I'll sell my psp before it comes out though if rumours are true about linux and hard drive, etc....

Well, I wish I could sell my PSP... but guess what? After fixing it yesterday, my friggin' select button broke again. I'm buying one more home bar - if it still doesn't work, I'm bombing Sony.

i wouldnt sell my psp, being that it is a 1000, and that it will take years to get a good homebrew scene on it, (plus then i couldnt have my emulator on it to play N64 games!)

Mine is a 1st generation 1000 as well. And I mentioned that I would only sell mine if the rumours were true about the linux capabilities. If that is true, then it's a matter of days before homebrew is released, not years. Do you not understand the rule of linux? IT'S OPEN SOURCE! Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
