The PSP3000 is the successor to the not-so-long-ago released PSP Slim&Lite.
And while everyone was not thrilled at the changes (there is not really much compared to the previous edition), as things stand now, this is the best version of the PSP yet.

There?s a few new features:
  1. The screen is a lot more vivid and gets shows the colors better (my roommate has the old one and I have the PSP3000 - you can plainly see the differences in color rendering)
  2. The screen is based on a newer technology that has faster refresh rates and eliminates ghosting (which was a minor nuisance on the Slim&Lite)
  3. There?s a built-in mic that allows you to chat on skype (also built-in!) and other messenger application without the need for an external microphone. The other advantage is that you don't need a proprietary PSP-headset anymore; just about any earphones will do.
  4. Sony claims (on the official site) that the screen is more glare-resistant. To be honest, I didn't see the difference though.
  5. Shapes of some buttons and placement of logo has slightly changed, but its not like this affects the device in any way.

Also, the claims (I've seen on some sites) say that the display is bad in that is causes "interlacing artifacts" is in my opinion blown out of proportion. Yes, there is a tiny amount of interlacing but it did not bother me one bit. In fact, I hardly notice it.However, the only real drawback is that it doesn't really offer much to owners of the Slim&Lite.
If you already have one... you're not missing anything big. But if you don?t have any PSP yet and planning to buy one; I guess this is your best bet!
