Sony PSP E-1000 revealed

No Wi-Fi, but low price and new design should give Nintendo plenty to think about.

Sony last night pulled off a surprise during its GamesCom keynote, revealing a new handheld console. The PSP E-1000 is essentially a pared down version of its current portable gaming gadget and will launch alongside the top-end, spec-heavy PS Vita.

The new version of the PSP doesn’t have Wi-Fi, but will play UMD and downloadable games via Sony’s Media Go service. It will cost just €99, with a UK price yet to be revealed. Expect it to match that European price tag.

The matte-finished console is being primed as a competitor to Nintendo’s DSi, as well as looking to tempt smartphone owners who want a more immersive gaming experience.

Can the PSP E-1000 succeed? Or is Sony wasting its time trying to compete with the likes of the iPhone? Tell us what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
