The PlayStation Portable family introduced its newest evolution, the PSP go system and a remarkable content lineup including exclusives Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, and Resident Evil. Coming to North America in October 2009, the PSP go system is specifically designed for the digital lifestyle with an even more portable, pocket-sized and sleek design. Exclusively for downloading digital content, the PSP go system comes built in with 16GB of internal flash memory for games, videos, music, and photos, and will be priced at $249.99. SCEA also announced a suite of new digital content services that will be available for both PSP go and PSP-3000 systems, including a new music application called "SensMe channels," a mood based music recommendation system and Media Go!, a free application that makes it easier for consumers to manage their PSP games, photos, videos and music on their PC.
Also demoed on stage, SCEA previewed current developments for an engineering prototype of a new controller which can be combined with PlayStation Eye to offer unmatched precision for added depth and enhanced gaming experiences for casual to the hard-core gamers. The controller detects the natural movements of the hands and uses the PlayStation Eye to detect the position of the controller in 3D, allowing the camera to project users onto the TV screen to play and interact with onscreen objects. In addition, Dualshock 3, one of SCEA's most popular peripherals, will be offered in three new colors this year. "Satin Silver" will be available exclusively at GameStop from July through September, while "Deep Red" and "Metallic Blue" will be available at all retail partners starting in October.
