    psp Sony corrects PSP statement

    via Computer and Video Games

    SCEA marketing man John Koller last week told the world the new PSP's brighter screen would mean increased power consumption and thus around 20-30 minutes reduced battery time. Logical, you'd think. But now Koller says he was wrong.

    In a corrective statement today, Koller has said that the new PSP-3000 will actually have equivalent battery life to the current PSP Slim.

    "I'd like to make a correction and clarify that the new PSP will have equivalent battery life to the current PSP, about 4 to 6 hours for games and about 4 to 5 hours for UMD videos," said Koller on the official PS blog.

    He goes on to explain: "While the enhanced screen of the new PSP draws a little more power, our engineers in Japan worked to reduce the power consumption of the overall system including its components, so you won't have to worry about losing any time when enjoying the more vibrant visuals displayed with the new PSP."

    We expect the internet to put this to the test the minute it becomes available.

    The new console, with its nicer screen and built-in microphone (oh, and equivalent battery life), will be out in UK on October 17 for 149.99.

    I've got a feeling they're saying that because of the flak they got about the lost battery life and they realize 20-30 mins is not that much and we really wont notice the difference.
