Sony Computer Entertainment announced two new official PSP products today:

-The "PSP-280" battery pack
-The "PSP-MP1G" 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo

The battery pack is 2200mAh versus the included battery's (PSP-110) 1800mAh capacity; this equates to about 20% more battery life for you. This one will be available for 5,565 yen (~$48 USD) on October 28th.

The "PSP-MP1G" is a 1GB version of that Memory Stick included with your PSP. Not much to say about this one, because I'm pretty sure most of us who wanted a 1GB stick have one by now. It'll be available October 28th for 9,500 yen (~$83 USD), so it looks like Sony is taking a new approach to the typically high (in comparison to other flash memory) Memory Stick Duo prices.

The battery is definitely a bit plus but the Sony mem sticks are not so good. You are better off with a SanDisk since for the same price blow the Sony out of the water in speed.

Yup... just yesterday I picked up a 1gb Sandisk pro duo at BestBuy for 89 bucks (usually like 120 but I told them Wal-Mart had them for 89.82 on the website, which they do, and they price matched ;)).

Looking good... but I wouldn't get it because it wouldn't fit in my Logitech case :(.

If Play-Asia stocks it you will be able to get it in the U.S. fairly easily.
