PSP 2000 Available - PSP Slim & Lite Version

Sony Psp Slim: not Slim in Features

The Sony PSP Slim and Lite is a handheld game console that was developed and released by Sony Computer Entertainment.

The new PSP Slim model gaming console from Sony is 33% lighter and 20% slimmer than the original PSP system. The model numbers have changed to PSP-2000, following the previous region-based numbering scheme. Sony launched the PSP Slim model gaming console in Europe on September 5 and in the U.S. on September 6, 2007 and in Korea on the next day to the U.S. release. The PSP Slim and Lite model has removed the metal chassis but has, improved WLAN modules and Micro-controller and a thinner and much lighter LCD display.

The PSP-2000 commonly known as "PSP Slim and Lite", offers several other tweaks and improvements from the older generation. It comes with doubled internal memory of 64 MB aimed to improve load times and accommodate for an improvement in the web browser's performance. Sony in an aim to make the PSP slimmer has reduced the capacity of the battery by about 1/3rd. The runtime of the PSP is still the same as the older model. Thanks to the efficient power usage. But, the battery cover on the newer model does not fit over the older battery. Thanks to the bulkier size.

The PSP Slim and Lite model comes with a new enamel coated finish that will prevent scratches and smudges. The serial port is also in modified form as to accommodate a new video-out feature. The new model comes with a new UMD loading tray design that is more efficient in terms of size, while the Wi-Fi switch is now on the top of the console and the Memory Stick slot moved to the upper left. The speakers are now placed on the front of the PSP near the top of the screen. The PSP Slim and Lite model gaming console was released in Hong Kong on August 30, 2007. It was launched in North America on September 5 and in New Zealand on September 14, 2007.

Sony PSP to be Lighter, Slimmer starting in September

Announced today by Sony, is the news that the kid & adult friendly Playstation Portable will be remodeled and released in September lighter & slimmer than the current handheld model. The new PSP handheld model will be approximately 33% less weight than the current version and 19% slimmer (or thinner). I guess it's too heavy for everyone right now (not).

Kazuo Hirai, chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment, made the PSP announcement during a presentation at the E3 video game exposition.

A spokeswoman for Sony told Reuters the slimmer PSP would retail for about the same as the current PSP.

In related news, Sony cut the price of the Playstation 3 on Monday by $100. It's still too much, but at least you now save another $100 off of the cost. Microsoft will not be following suit w/ the price cut, stating their X-Box 360 model will remain at the same price for the time being.

Bouncy: Virtual Lap Dances Vol 1 - Adult UMD, XXX UMD

It's official... Adult UMD's for your PSP. Yes, you can now order "porn" on your Playstation PSP. Although Bouncy's Virtual Lap Dances Volume 1 doesn't market itself as an XXX title, the UMD does show full nudity and some cowgirl sex.

Did I mention it was cheap? The Virtual Lap Dances DVD is selling right now for only $13.99, so it's definitely not like buying a new PSP game or even some real Adult DVD's. The site does say that it's not going to be released until 2010, but I really doubt the wait is that long.

Here's a description of the Virtual Lap Dances UMD/DVD from Bouncy:

"Virtual Lap Dances #1 features 12 of Bouncy's hottest girls doing very explicit strip teases with close up nudity and giving lap dances that go all the way. The lap dances go from simple grinding and teasing to full on cowgirl sex. All of these scenes are shot in first person perspective to give the viewer the experience that has made Bouncy famous - true virtual reality. Although not an XXX title, Virtual Lap Dances #1 is the first UMD release by an American porn company and the ONLY UMD IN THE WORLD that shows close up nudity, celebrating every beautiful inch of women and their glorious sexuality!"
The reviews of the XXX UMD aren't all that great at this point, but they appear to be fake anyway, so you're probably getting exactly what the DVD title indicates - virtual lap dances... nothing more, nothing less (ok, so a lot less clothes). :P

Buying the game will be difficult for anyone under 18, so stay away if you fit in that category.
