Unlike the iPhone's recessed headphone jack, the new PSP will work with virtually any standard 3.5mm headphones. The slot to the right accepts new remote cables, as well as the proprietary video-output cables, which let the PSP connect to any TV.

The new PSP will be available for sale in North America on September 10. The bare-bones black model will retail for $170, while the silver model (shown) will sell as part of the $200 Daxter Entertainment pack (including a 1GB Memory Stick Duo, the Daxter game, and a Family Guy UMD video). That will be followed up in October by a similarly stocked Star Wars PSP in white (with a black Darth Vader logo, naturally).
