A Sony spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz that they have no plans of redesigning the PSP. This came after PlayStation Magazine ran an article suggesting a redesigned PSP, with 8 GB or internal memory and a bunch of other goodies. The spokesperson took the opportunity to highlight the new add-ons for the PSP, a GPS module and the PSP camera.
There were a few indications that the PSP redesign simply wasn’t going to happen, at least not with the 8 GB internal storage. Such a large flash memory module would bring the price to over $400 for a PSP console.
