PSP（ PlayStation Portable) was developed in the U.S. in 2005 by the Song Computer Entertainment Company. It soon became a highly desireble, portable and handheld wireless device for multiple entertainment purposes.
The PSP system allows users to view photos, listen to music, watch pre-recorded and live television, enjoy movies and backstage footage, access the Internet through a wireless connection, as well as the many free downloads available through the PlayStation website (wallpaper, movie trailers, screen shots, news & events).
At E3 2007, Sony announced that a new version of the PSP would be released in September 2007, for all regions. The redesigned PSP is 33% lighter and 19% thinner than the original PSP. The redesign also features composite TV output, supports charging via USB, double the onboard RAM (32 MB to 64 MB), and has a brighter screen. It also caches UMD data in memory to decrease game loading times. The WLAN switch has been moved to the top where the old IR receiver was to avoid accidental switching, and the speaker vents that were at the bottom and underside of the original PSP have been moved to the top of this new model.
On August 20, 2008, a revised PSP design was announced at a press conference in Leipzig. Based on the Slim & Lite (PSP-2000) design,the PSP-3000 features an improved LCD screen, a built-in microphone, oval shaped start and select buttons and an expanded video-out. The LCD screen features a higher contrast ratio, shorter response time, and wider color gamut, as well as anti-reflective technology for improved visibility in well-lit environments. Expanded video-out capability allows gameplay video to be output in interlaced format. This model was released in Japan, Asia, North America, Europe and Australia in October 2008.
The PSP Go was revealed on May 30, 2009 in the June episode of Qore and was later officially announced on June 2, 2009 at E3.The PSP Go features Bluetooth functionality, a 3.8 inch screen and weighs 43% less than the original PSP. Instead of the UMD drive as found on previous models, the PSP Go has 16 GB of internal flash memory and Memory Stick Micro port as opposed to Memory Stick Duo. Games will be downloadable from the PlayStation Store. The sliding mechanism on the screen hides the main face buttons and the analogue nub when not in use.
