Rumorang: Conflicting reports on PSP redesign

It seems there's some disagreement as to which aspects of the PlayStation Portable are due for a change in its officially non-existent but chronically rumored redesign. Rumor Reporter (guess what they do?) today responded to Kotaku's earlier article on the PSP Lite, PSPetite, PSP Slim or what have you, claiming that "undisclosed sources" have labeled the initial specification changes as "mainly factually inaccurate."

Rumor Reporter's Bruce Kelly, who previously outed Warhawk as a downloadable PSN title (though it's arriving on Blu-ray disc as well), asserts that his informants hold details that "contradict" those provided last week, but conveniently notes, "we still don't have enough to confirm anything as fact." These potential non-facts are offered as counter-points to those previously aired: The new PSP will still have an LCD screen (one letter different from the previously mentioned LED screen), it will not have any "big speed increases", will feature a slot-loading UMD drive and will "likely" feature only 4GB of on-board storage.

Though it sounds more like a me-too take on the continuing rumors as opposed to a contradicting one, we still like to envision this as an epic battle between two musketeers using elongated balloons as swords. There's a lot of squeaking and squealing going on, but the most grievous injury can only be suffered by one's credibility. If the improved PSP is indeed on the way, we're sure to be given some sharper implements once Min-E3 is in full swing.
