PSP to follow iPod strategy with a model refresh?

PSP Model Refresh Strategy

As reported by Gamer Scan, the publication PlayStation Magazine claims to have news of a PSP refresh for March 2007 that would see the portable game system follow Apple's own strategy of constant hardware upgrades with stable pricing. Previously, consoles have largely remained the same after their introductions and dropped in price as components became less expensive over time. If the new report is accurate, Sony will keep the PSP at its current price but upgrade the features dramatically to include 8GB of internal flash memory, a camera, and a smaller design. More storage has been a frequent request for the PSP as owners have generally spurned UMD discs for movies in favor of downloads from their home PCs.
