New peripheral outputs PSP to s-video
GameTech lets you play PSP games on your standard def television.
One of the PSP-2000's biggest new features is being expanded upon by a third party peripheral maker. GameTech shared details today on Terebi de Portable P2, an adapter that lets users output the PSP-2000 video signal to s-video or composite.
Currently, Sony and other manufacturers market a variety of cables for hooking the PSP-2000 system up to a television for gameplay and media viewing. Of these options, only D-cables and Component AV Cables will allow you to play games. S-Video and AV Cables limit the television connectivity to just media output.
The new new GameTech adapter takes care of this discrepancy. The device plugs into your PSP-2000's output port just like normal. At its other end, it has cables for connecting audio and either s-video or composite video. Between the two ends of the three meter wire is a small converter box that takes care of all the technicalities of the conversion.
The Terebi de Portable P2 requires its own power source. GameTech has made it so that you can use your PSP's AC Adapter for powering the device, when has a connector for your PSP's AC adapter port and can continue passing power to the system.
GameTech is asking 7,800 yen (pre-tax) for the device, which will go on sale on July 18.
