no... just no...
They better not use that to replace the original PSP series. That looks bad IMO, I hope my PSP dont die out.
#1. The button placement is in a bad place, looks like its hard to play with the analog.
#2. The slide idea isnt going to work with cases, it would be annoying taking it out of the case to play, and putting it back in when done , not a fan of the slide idea either (I like using my PSP in case to reduce scratching and to make it look nice).
#3. This would most likely not be bought by people with slow internet or people that are not good at using the internet, unless theres going to be DL booths for them, but then the lines will be pretty long and cost a lot to manage.
If Sony replaces this for the 2000/3000 series, then they just lost an consumer.
