Default New Sony hardware revealed

Sony announced recently that it will be releasing a plethora of new PS3 and PSP models in a few months. The new hardware includes:
  • PS3 w/a 160GB hard drive, along with a copy of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, a PSN download voucher for PAIN, and a wireless DualShock 3 controller. It will roll out this November, with a MSRP of $499 USD.
  • PSP w/a built-in microphone, an upgraded LCD screen, and various other upgrades. It will be released in two bundles: Premium, which comes with a copy of Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, a 4GB Memory Stick, an as-of-yet unknown UMD movie, and a PSN download voucher for Echochrome. The "Core" bundle comes with only the PSP. The Premium and Core bundles have a MSRP of $199 and $169 USD, respectively. Expect to see this ship by October.
  • A wireless Bluetooth mini-keyboard, designed to snap onto a DualShock 3 or Sixaxis controller. Its MSRP has not yet been set, but it should hit stores by November.

I kind of want a new model PSP. Looks like it's a big step up.

it's nice, but the real question is will it be able to do homebrew in the future?

As soon as someone hacks the firmware (which is bound to happen), it will.
