Sony unveiled a new low cost Sony PSP for select markets at the GamesCom 2011.
Sony announced today a price-cut for the Sony PS3 and somewhat surprisingly a new version of the Sony PSP console. The new PSP E-1000 is a low-cost variant of the PS with slightly updated design and no Wi-Fi connectivity. The price is down at 99.99 Euro and will be available in PAL countries.
I assume Sony wants to move in harder on the Nintendo DS line with the Sony E-1000. A standard PSP is selling for only $129 in the United States, but in Germany the price is at about 160 Euro. Europeans have to pay quite a bit more for the PSP than Americans. That is why I guess we will not see the E-1000 in the US.
The new high-end portablegaming console PS Vita will start selling in 2012. The price for it is $249.99

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
