Sony has a new PlayStation Portable. Budget priced at €99 (and currently only for Europe), the PSP E-1000 does what every other PSP does—it just doesn't have built-in Wi-Fi. And it's matte! See?

The PSP E-1000 is on display at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's big, beach-themed booth, a handheld almost completely free of greasy fingerprints. That may be the most exciting thing about Sony's latest iteration of the six-year-old platform. It's lighter (but slightly larger), shuffles a few hardware features around and has traded its below-screen buttons for a single, touch-sensitive strip.
