Sony is planning to capitalize on the end-year sales rush by offering two new limited edition bundles of the PSP Slim. These are the Deep Red Value Pack and the Deep Red I Seg. The Deep Red I Seg has a digital TV tuner bundled in.

The PSP Slim is 33 percent lighter and 19 percent thinner than the original Sony PSP. It also has a slightly larger LCD screen and is a little cheaper.
