Sony shows budget PSP without Wi-Fi for 99 euros [U]

Sony PSP minus Wi-Fi headed to at least Europe

(Update: E-1000 name and official shots) Sony at its Gamescom keynote unveiled an unusual new PSP model as a going-away version. The new E-1000 will ship without Wi-Fi, but with UMD, and is intended to catch budget users. In Europe, it should cost about 99 euros ($143), or a third less than the 127 euros ($183) of the current edition. Timing wasn't narrowed down.

It won't ship to the US, Sony said.

The new version is likely both to move out the last batches of PSPs ahead of the PSVita as well as to create a new mobile gaming system that could sit below the Vita if a Wi-Fi PSP is too expensive.
