It seems all the tittle tattle was bang on the money. Engadget has got the full skinny on this DSi baiter, after it all leaked on the official PlayStation Forums. There's a slide out 3.8in screen as predicted, and Sony says its 43 per cent lighter than the PSP 3000. There'll be 16GB of on board storage, handy as there's no UMD drive here.
Bluetooth is on board, as is a memory stick slot, PS3 integration, and, happily, loads of new games including LittleBigPlanet and Gran Turismo.
As yet, pricing remains off limits, but we'll be stalking the halls at E3 when the doors open on Tuesday, bringing you all the news as it happens.
