For many visitors of New York's Houston St., the giant PSP has been a landmark for years. The billboard-sized PSP ran videos of the newest and best PSP games (when it worked). However, it looks like it's finally being taken down. Perhaps Sony's going to put a giant PSP-3000 system up there, which will be slimmer than the original giant PSP-1000. But ... that seems unlikely.

Update: Guess what? It is getting a 3000 series upgrade! According to SCEA's Al de Leon, the PSP billboard will be getting a new and improved screen -- just like the PSP-3000. (Let's hope this doesn't have the scanline issue.)
