Sony upgrades the PSP battery
As much as I’d like to tell you all that Sony did a huge improvement on their next PSP accessory, I can’t. But the new battery for the PSP that is coming out that has a whooping 20% more capacity than the current ones with 2200mAh. So instead of playing Ridge Racer for 3/4 hours you can now play it for 4/5 hours instead.
They will start selling on 10/27 in Japan for 5300 yen pre tax, which should make it around 50$ a piece (a bit expensive for an addict).
In other (slightly less interesting news) Sony will also shell out “official” 1GB memory sticks for around the double of the price of the new batteries on the same date.
Perhaps the new battery is Sony’s way of saying “sorry” for the lame PSP patch they just released.
