Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will be releasing an updated version of the PSP alongside Monster Hunter Portable 3rd: and guess what? it comes with a new and improved analog stick!
This special edition Monster Hunter 3rd themed Sony PSP will feature an new analog stick that’s slightly modified to make future gaming sessions more comfortable for Japanese thumbs. The black and gold Monster Hunter PSP also features the good old extended battery pack, for making those extended Monster Hunter Portable 3rd games last even longer. This also means that the new PSP’s battery cover will stick out a little further than the standard PSP which may actually help you grip while you hunt your favorite monsters.
I’m hoping this new PSP with improved analog stick gets released for Western audiences as well.The Monster Hunter Portable 3rd limited edition PSP will ship in Japan on December 1 and cost 19800 yen.
