Sony Playstation Portable 3000

PSP Ice Silver edition. This is the PSP 3000 which is a slightly upgraded version of the 1 and 2000 series. This article is going to cover the differences from the older models. The hardware upgrades, and what they mean to you. and also the advantages of the PSP slim version versus the thicker model. The PSP Silver is simply a silver version of the PSP 3000. However, in my experience the newer finish of the silver is much better and much easier to keep clean. It isn't the high gloss finish of the Black models. Instead the PSP Ice Silver is a bright silver, matted finish which helps to hide fingerprints!
