The third iteration of the PSP
- The PSP 3000 is an upgrade of the previous PSP hardware. Offering the highest-level contrast ratio, response time, and wider color gamut on a portable LCD screen, the PSP 3000 is capable of displaying movies and photos in more natural and vibrant colors on its high resolution and wide screen.
- The new LCD screen adopts an anti-reflection technology, which enables users to see the screen more clearly in well-lit places, even when used outdoors. It is simple to watch your favorite movies at anytime and anywhere just using a free PSP video converter.
- And the built-in microphone will allow users to easily enjoy games that utilize a microphone and other communication tools. Improve the PSP user's experience through these additional and upgraded features, and the content creators will have more flexibility to develop creative, entertainment content for the PSP 3000.
- Its sharp and incredibly bright new screen is the major selling point behind the new PSP 3000. The update has given Sony's portable the unofficial nickname of “PSP Brite”, but reports today indicate this welcome new feature could be as much of a blessing as it is a curse.
- "Yes the color gamut is wider, yes the black levels are lower, but this screen now has what looks like scan lines that were not visible on PSPs before," said one PSP 3000 owners." I am not happy about my upgrade."
- Unfortunately, the news gets worse from here. "On some occasions, scan lines may appear on scenes where brightness changes drastically, due to the hardware features of the new LCD device on PSP 3000," said Sony in a statement on the matter.
- The statement continues: "Installed with this new LCD device, PSP 3000 offers more natural and vibrant colors on its screen, but the scan lines have come out to be more visible as a result of improving response time to alleviate the afterimages on PSP 3000. Since this is due to hardware specification, there are no plans for a system software update concerning this issue."
- But the news is not all doom and gloom for the PSP Brite. According to the reports out of Japan, the portable was selling at a brisk clip, to the tune of 141,270 units sold in the first week. An estimate that could mean the Sony Japan forums could see a deluge of 141,270 complaints in the coming days.
