Speaking in a recent interview, Sony Computer Entertainment America product marketing manager John Koller revealed that the battery life of the PSP-3000 will be decreased by 20-30 minutes, due to the larger power draw of the brighter screen.
"Battery life will decrease by a small amount, itís about 20 minutes maybe 30 minutes and thatís because thereís a larger power draw with the brighter screen."
Good news is, despite previous reports to the contrary, the PSP extended battery life pack is not being discontinued and will be available to consumers this holiday season, offering 8-10 hours of play time.
A 20-30 minute decrease in the runtime is almost nothing to me, prefer being able to see what's on the screen more. Besides, that extended battery pack would balance it off just fine with more power to the console.
I see that Sony are ruining yet another product of the "Playstation" Franchise.
I knew somthing like this would happen but its well worth it,But Im not buying a bright
psp phat, psp slim, now psp bright. so fitting!
It's also been confirmed that the Slim will be phased out eventually. Koller says production of the PSP-2000 will cease by September. Already?! If you're a collector of sorts, better make sure you grab a Slim unit ASAP!
Wow another 30 minutes shaved off my PSP battery? That would make my PSP last a whole hour of hardcore snes gameplay..woohoo.
It's not really bad considering how much better the screen is.
