February 23, 2009 // 1:56 pm - Sony's rumored PSP-4000 will apparently include a sliding front screen (similar to the non-Sony concept art pictured below) and boast a "complete aesthetic overhaul" based on existing PSP technology.

According to a "highly trusted source," the revamped handheld is set to be unveiled at GDC or E3 this year, though companies are keeping mum on any further details.

Additionally, the source also backs up Eurogamer's claims of a 2009 release date for the platform, so we can expect to be getting our hands on the swanky new portable device at some point this year.

To quote: VG247 has learned that PSP-4000 does have a sliding front-screen, with a highly-trusted source confirming fresh details on the unannounced machine this morning.

PSP-4000 is not PSP2, but rather a "complete aesthetic overhaul" based on existing PSP tech.

Much is now known by some parties of the console, which will be announced at either GDC or E3 this year, but cards are currently being clutched very tightly to chests.

The revamp does have a sliding front-screen, and we're assured the design being currently touted isn't a million miles away from this now-infamous image.

If its anything like the user made concept, then i'm sold, it looks stunning. I wouldn't put my life savings on it, but i bet they're more than likely to utilise their OLED tech with the PSP-4000, tbh they'd be stupid not to.

If this is true that would be absolutely awesome. Especially so because that picture shows dual analog sticks, something which should have been a part of the psp from the beginning. I hope they also make it less of a fingerprint magnet but only time will tell..

Well as stated in the original post the design was a concept, that was not created by Sony. Oh well looks like I might be buying two PSPs this year depending on if the price of the new one is right and if it offers two analog sticks. Downloadable PS2 games would also be a plus.

This is a nice preview... at the other hand, how much can we trust the source ? If you look at the picture you see it has been photoshopped... But i would certainly buy it

Ive had my 2 psp 1000's for years now and I really dont mind upgrading when the 4000 comes out... sounds interesting.

Would be cool if the new psp could play ANY ps3 game remotely... I wanna play Savage Moon on my psp.
