Under a week left for the E3 and Ars Technica have got some meaty details from one of their sources regarding the most sought rumors – new PSP and PS3. Apparently, their source who has never gone wrong before claims that the upcoming PSP, dubbed as PSP Go! will be announced at E3 while the PS3 Slim will be out sometime in August or September.
As we guestimated before, the new UMD-less PSP Go! will sell alongside the current PSP generation. Publishers will offer their piece of software on UMDs and also as a digital download to cater to the PSP Go! public. The source did not mention about the specifications but if we recollect from the previous report, it will possess the same graphic hardware, bring in a WVGA touchscreen, 8 or 16GB of storage space and possibly a camera. In short, it will look to compete iPod Touch.
As for the PS3 Slim, their birdie claims it will come after the original PS3 have sold off the shelves. Sony will mostly unveil after retailers are ready to purchase to buy new stock.
