<BLOCKQUOTE>At E3 2004, Sony unveiled the PlayStation Portable in various colors, including yellow or white among others. The first variant to make it to marketplace, following the stepstones of original Jet-Black, will be Ceramic White, and it's coming on September 15th. Black PSPs are flooding the market, falling in the hands of, oh my god, "casual gamers" on a daily basis. If you are the kind of hardcore gamer that likes to have something special to pull off his pocket, then SCEJ got something coming for you. It's white, wears white buttons and detailing, comes with all the goodies of the Value Pack in white color, and it's coming out in the same month as the PSP port of Winning Eleven 9. Planned for release after the summertime, the Ceramic White edition of the PSP is not eligible for the Free UPS Shipping Shipping Worldwide campaign.

Today's PSP announcements about Winning Eleven and Ceramic White Edition are coming from the PlayStation Meeting 2005 which just took place in Japan. At the gathering, the upcoming firmware 2.00 was also unveiled. It will bring to life the following features on the sexy handheld machine:

it looks cool?

I still like the black one better, white eventually gets an "off" colour if you know what I mean.

i'd prefer a case changing kit with some other case colors... (i have a kit like this for GBASP with fft silver, rockman, botkai, gundam, tatoo and tales of phantasia cases, plus my cobalt ^^)
it'd be cool with PSP too

I'm totally going to buy a white psp since it comes preinstalled with firmware 2.0. Even though I already have a 1.50 black psp I can't bring myself to update it and lose funcionality. So.... buy a second one and with the new sexy white one available soon I have even more reason to do so.
