Magazine ad references unreleased PSP-4000

Future UMD-ready PSP possibly confirmed

Talk of a new UMD-based PSP gained credence this weekend with a reference to a possible system in UK game industry magazine MCV's most recent issue (note: Flash-based page). An ad for peripheral maker Accessories4Technology shows support for a "PSP-4000" model alongside both all existing UMD models and the PSP Go.

It's not certain if the posting is an actual preview of Sony's plans or pure speculation on the accessory developer's part. Sony typically denies rumors even if accurate, but Accessories4Gamers hasn't commented on the authenticity of its ad.

Expectations are that any model if real would be a treatment similar to the redesigned PS3, as it would primarily slim down or otherwise improve the same basic shape. Sony has previously said it plans to keep selling UMD-based PSPs alongside the PSP Go even as it pushes towards downloads. The PSP Go has also faced a backlash as its high $250 price and hesitance by retailers to allow online codes has pushed many to the older but cheaper device. [via Kotaku]
