PSP-E1000 tech specs released

New PSP detailed, missing on-board stereo audio

Sony has released a tech specs list for its latest new PSP remodel, version E-1000, set to hit Europe this autumn.


Sony already confirmed at Gamescom last week that it would be missing WIFI capability, but by streamlining the hardware Sony is selling it at a snappy 99 Euros.

Now it's released a specs list which reveals one other small omission - on-board stereo sound. The new PSP will be the first to only have one speaker on the unit, which means that you'll be restricted to monaural sound unless you plug in a pair of earphones.

All other features, apart from the obvious aesthetic changes, remain the same as previous models. Here's the full spec sheet:
