Sony's hoping to boost the lagging sales of their PSP handheld by releasing an updated PSP Slim model. While it looks nearly identical to its predecessor, it boasts a body that's 33% lighter and 19% slimmer. It also has better battery life, faster load times, and video output for TVs.
It all sounds well and good, but is it enough to get people interested in the PSP again? It seems to me that what's been holding sales back hasn't been the fact that the original PSP is too bulky, it's that there aren't many decent games for the system. Whether the system is heavy or light, if there's nothing fun to play on it people aren't going to buy it. But hey, that's just me.
