Sony Reveals PSP Camera For PAL Regions
Okay, so we know about the PlayStation Eye, but what about the PSP? We've been hearing all about a little camera for Sony's handheld, but until now, we had no idea when it might arrive.
Well, according to Joystiq, Sony has officially announced the launch date for their PSP camera, which is cleverly called, Go!Cam. Unfortunately, the May 16 date is only for PAL territories; we still don't know when it will hit North American shores (although we're hoping it's soon). This little unit will go for €49.99 (about £34.99 in the UK, or about $68 US), which may or may not prove to be a reasonable price tag.
Much like the Eye, the Go!Cam comes equipped with a microphone and a piece of editing software; Go!Edit, which is "an editing software package that allows users to save and edit photos, video and audio clips." So it sounds awfully similar to the Eye, which is probably a good thing; PSP owners don't have to complain about not getting the same bells and whistles with their peripheral. We'll let you know when they announce a U.S. release for the Go!Cam.
