Sony UK to ship white PSP next week

Out on Monday, etailers suggest

Sony looks set to ship its glossy white version of the PlayStation Portable in the UK early next week, if a number of the country's biggest retailers are anything to go by. The special-edition handheld console will ship in the Value Pack bundle configuration.

Almost all the online retailers we checked with this afternoon have the white PSP's price down as £180 - that's the same price as the standard Value Pack featuring the more commonplace glossy black PSP, though you can also get a black Base Pack for £150.

Some retailers say the white PSP is available immediately, others that it will ship in a couple of days. Amazon.co.uk states Monday, 15 May is the ship date, and we've a hunch that's the day Sony UK will announce the product.

The Value Pack bundles headphones, a case, an AC adaptor and a 32MB MemoryStick with the PSP. The Base Pack contains only the console and the power adaptor. ®
