I was expecting a newer flashier design, it looks exactly like my psp apart from the memory card port.
The new memory card slot looks fragile, i wouldn't be surprised if many get broke, the old design with the rubber cover is a much better idea, more durable.
I like the idea of a mic, but the only practicle use for it would be instant messaging and lets face it they need to work alot harder on the current messenger service on the psp.
Maybe its a step closer to merging a phone into the psp or voip.
Im curious as to what extra ports will be on it, maybe there will be more scope for third party hardware for this new psp such as a television tuner or bluetooth, who knows but i will be keeping a keen eye on the latest news on this new psp.
