Sony readying third PSP with built-in mic, more?

Sony PSP 3rd Gen Leak

Sony is allegedly readying a third iteration of the PlayStation Portable that would reflect changes to the PSP itself as well as its relationship with the PlayStation 3, if a set of leaked shots from China prove accurate. The device known so far as the PSP-3000 would incorporate a built-in microphone below the screen that would make it more immediately useful for Skype calls as well as in-game chat; it would also have redesigned buttons, including a home button relabeled with the PS logo to bring it into line with the PS3.

The design would also be at least slightly thinner with a subtler PSP logo ring at the back, though most other details of the supposed console refresh are otherwise unknown.

This same source suggests that the PSP-3000 is already in production and so would be available within a few months, falling in line with holiday shopping. Sony hasn't commented on the leak and is unlikely to confirm any details unless it intends an official announcement closer to release. [via Kotaku]
