Let’s begin with the PSP 3000’s case. It looks almost identical from top to bottom as well as side to side to the PSP 2000. It also feels and weighs the same. You’ll see subtle changes if you look closely. The ‘Sony” moniker has been moved to the left side of the screen, right where the PlayStation logo used be. The logo has disappeared.
