    Its like a token effort for Europe. Have a revised product first and then you never need complain again, I can see them using this in a statment about late Europe releases in future.

    So we get the revised model first and it's a "token effort", but if they do anything else they're "screwing the Europeans again"...

    They can't win really can they?

    The nicest gesture the company could make would be the harmonisation of pricing with Non-pal regions where it will certainly be cheaper or it simply won't sell..

    seriously thinking of trading my old PSP in for one of these, as I find the D-Pad on the old one useless (and awkwardly placed)

    It's not the size that matters.

    Mmmm I much prefer my DS, although the PSP does have a few quality games on it. Problem with the PSP, it's it's trying to be a, well, PS that's portable, playing the similar games, it's pretty unoriginal (but none the less a pretty slick looking bit of equipment).

    Not sure why it's got the video out, ooo look, horrible quality picture! Yay!

    I noticed in this months T3 Magazine that they're also doing a PSP Phone. These plans are the closest I could find to the photos.
