Sony ballyhoos budget PSP

Redesigned and repriced

Intelligent flash storage arrays

While the PS Vita lingers on the horizon, Sony is readying a refreshed PlayStation Portable - model E-1000 - for a penny short of £100.

The move means the company will market a cheaper portable console than arch-rival Nintendo is following the recent 3DS price cuts.

One downside: the budget Sony here lacks Wi-Fi and has to be connected to a computer through USB in order to access internet services.

Still, the look is pretty slick and the full backwards compatibility, including UMD content, might turn some heads. The price of an older full Wi-Fi model is only a tad more expensive, though, so if you are considering splashing out, weigh up your options first.

The PSP E-1000 is out in November. ®
