>> I'm David Carnoy [assumed spelling], executive editor for CNET.com, and I'm here with Al DeLeon of the Playstation team. And he's got the PSP Go, it's an early unit. We actually have the Empire State Building in the background, very exciting. But the real action here is the PSP Go. Al if you could just tell us a little bit about it.
>> This is the new PSP Go, and it's launching October 1st. And as you can see, it's significantly smaller than the current PSP, the PSP 3000. And the best feature actually from a design perspective is the sliding screen. So you slide the screen up and it reveals the D pad, the analog stick, all the face buttons. It includes sixteen gigabytes of internal flash memory. So there's no more disc drive, no more UMDs for the PSP Go. And there's also a memory stick micro slot here where you can expand the amount of storage you have for storing games, photos, music, and videos. So up to thirty-two gigabytes. It also offers Bluetooth support, so that opens up a lot of opportunity for us to offer new peripherals and accessories, and you'll certainly see things like Bluetooth headset for example which you could use for Skype. At the top here you have your volume controls, you have the display button for using video out, as well as for changing the brightness of the screen. And then you also have a mute button here and then two shoulder buttons which would be familiar to any PSP user.
>> We see the clock application on the screen right now. Do you see this opening up a lot more, like the iPhone, having more developers, more applications that are not just games.
>> One thing we did announce at E3 was a significant reduction in the dev tools, or the development tools for PSP. So the goal of that is really to enable all sorts of developers to be able to develop content for the PSP. And you know, it'll mostly be games, but there's certainly an opportunity to look at some non-gaming applications.
