Last week at Gamescom, Sony unveiled a new value SKU for the PSP, which the company claims to be enjoying a bit of a resurgence of late. It was announced at the price of 99 Euros, and Sony confirmed that the model would be missing wi-fi capability.
As it turns out, that’s not the only hardware omission from the bare-bones handheld. On top of its lack of wireless connectivity, the E-1000 will also be missing a speaker, meaning that it will be outputting monaural sound instead of stereo. The only way to restore this is by using your own headphone, which you should probably be doing anyway since the PSP’s speakers have never been anything to write home about.
Other than that, the E-1000 is identical to previous PSP iterations. Here are the full specifications:
