According to a GameSpot interview with Sony's US director of hardware marketing John Koller, that new PSP-3000
screen may look a bit better
... but it's going to cost you about 20 minutes of battery life. Luckily for you gamers with endless pockets out there, Koller assures that minor wrinkle will be offset because, "We're going to have the extended life battery that's still available for consumers, so we're still going to get the eight-to-ten hours out of that battery." So just to make that clear, the regular battery life will be diminished, but you can buy a new, larger battery from Sony
to extend your gaming time. Got that? Good. Watch him say it for real in the video after the break.
