Sony has announced a new PSP model at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne today, the PSP E-1000.

Unveiled with minimal fanfare as part of Sony's pre-GamesCom 2011 press conference, the PSP E-1000 is capable of playing all existing PSP games, according to Sony, but lacks WiFi functionality.

That means that downloadable games will have to be purchased via the PlayStation Store using Media Go, then transferred.

The PSP E-1000 also has a matte charcoal finish, but what makes it stand out the most of the budget 99 Euro price tag, making it an undeniably cheap option for gamers on the go.

Few other details on the console have been released however, other than that Sony hopes to have the new PSP E-1000 on sale sometime this Autumn.

Sony also revealed that the company has sold more than 71 million units in the PSP line since launch.
