The Sony PSP 3000 was the second redesign of the once-popular PlayStation Portable handheld gaming console. The 3000 was released in October 2008 with better color than its predecessor, improved sound output and built-in Skype. It was sold until 2011 when Sony launched the Vita. The PSP was never able to compete successfully with Nintendo's Game Boy line of handheld game consoles, which had a much earlier start in the handheld market.

Sony discontinued the entire PSP line and shipped its last PSP console to the U.S. in 2014.
