Sony: PSP-3000 battery doesn't come up short, after all

Despite what our executive admitted...

Reducing security risks from open source software

Sony has decided that the latest PlayStation Portable’s battery life isn’t shorter than the juice time available on the previous edition, despite a recent confession to the contrary.

John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said last week that “the new PSP will have equivalent battery life to the current PSP”.

That means PSP-3000 gamers will get between four and six hours' play time for games, and between four and five hours of runtime when watching UMD videos.

Earlier in the week, Koller admitted on camera that the PSP-3000’s battery would only last about three-and-a-half to four hours.

Koller still maintains that the 3000’s “enhanced screen” draws a little more power than normal. However, he claimed that Sony’s engineers in Japan had worked to reduce overall power consumption without sacrificing display quality.
