TGS 2010: Ergonomically Friendly Monster Hunter 3rd PSP Announced

by Staff September 16, 2010 @ 10:19 am

Capcom took the stage at Sony’s TGS press conference not only to show off their new trailer for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd to the audience but also to announce a special PSP bundle that includes a new redesigned unit that boasts improved battery life and exterior tweaks designed to make lengthy Monster Hunter sessions easier on your hands.

According to a Wired report, the back side of this PSP has been equipped with plastic grips and the analog stick now features a more tactile, concave surface. It’s slated to debut alongside the release of MHP 3rd in Japan with an asking price of 19,800 yen (approx. $230).

There’s no word on if it will reach the states, or if these changes will appear in a later PSP revision down the road.
