Sony recently released the latest hardware iteration of the Playstation Portable, the PSP-3000. The new unit boasts of a new LCD screen that boasts more vibrant colors and faster response times.
But reports are beginning to come out on the internet of owners complaining that in some games the image gets interlaced — that is, scan lines begin to appear. This usually appears during fast moving scenes.
Sony Computer Entertainment America has already issued a statement regarding matter and apparently this is an expected effect of the new hardware specification of the LCD screen. The scan lines apparently become more visible as a side effect of the faster response times of the screen. The company said that since this is hardware-related there are no plans to issue any kind of software updates.
I’ve read some posts from PSP-3000 owners and it looks like this effect is not as distracting as what was painted by some whiny owners.
