Summary: I've had mine since a few weeks after launch and after about 6 months, I was pretty much done playing commercial games. They were costing me too much and not getting enough play for the cash.
Pros: Looks nice physically. It feels nice and is a good weight for a portable system. Screen is nice and big and the games look really good on it. Homebrew games/software available if you have the know-how. Plenty of good games out already, and many more to come.
Cons: The fingerprint thing does suck. Constant firmware updates gets old. Many games seem a bit overpriced for what they are, especially for portable games. System itself was once more expensive than maybe it should have been. The new price is a bit more fair. UMD movies are a joke.
Excerpt: i’ve been playing my PSP for months now and it really is a handy module. i do love my PSP but every good thing has its bad. think of this as a caution only. excessive playing of PSP can really dislocate ur thumb. better be carefull on handling this …
Summary: I like to travel light but wanted something to game on (my 12 inch work laptop just doesn't cut it in the graphics dept - lol). This thing is perfect! Not a kids toy.
Pros: Amazing LCD, Kickin' graphics, nice audio (with headphones) does just about everything you could want in a handheld. Watch movies, view pics, play games (online too), listen to music, even sync-up your Tivo recordings for viewing on the go!
Cons: Fingerprints and dust and that I didn't buy this thing sooner.
Summary: Ok! So this is the deal... I've ordered this on the 25th and my product came today on my front door step... First thing i noticed was the package was tampered " Grr. " Didnt mind but then i noticed various plastic bags for the cables and booklet were missin'...
Pros: Ok, so, stylish screen and various other goodies like Mp3 player and movie player as well...
Cons: Ehhhhhh Dead pixels are very very common now and days with various Psp. Sonys lame Warrenty on Dead pixels. Slow load times. Easily scratched screen. Battery life, oh so short. Some stuff for this product are wayyyy overpriced for what they're really worth.
Summary: Honestly I have used it maybe 3 times after the year that I've had it. I do not recommend buying a PSP, at least not until Sony somehow makes it better.
Pros: Well the wide screen is pretty cool and it has a nice outer design. Being able to play certain movies on it is cool too if you have any.
Cons: Well where should I start? Numerous complaints include the fact that dead pixels are very common. The screen is easily scratched. The analog stick hurt my thumb to use since it's so small. You had to update your firmware to play certain games. In order to play online, you need wireless even thoug...
Summary: I am happy with my purchase of the PSP. It has many games, which should appeal to a more mature audience.
Pros: 1. Currently, the PSP has a great line up of games. Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Ape Escape, and Loco Roco, just to name a few. 2. Excellent graphics, comparable to the Playstation 2. 3. Can be connected to the Playstation 3 (via wifi connection). 4. Multimedia functionality (can play video f...
Cons: 1. Scratches easily (a hard-case is recommended) 2. Battery life is short: ranges from 8-9 hours, when fully charged. 3. Additional accessories are needed, for the core system: USB cable, memory card, screen protector, case.
Summary: I bought this thing for 249 US dollars about three months after it came out, and every single day I regret the purchase. Sony has taken every step imaginable to try and murder its own creation through terrible commericals with ethnic stereotypes and courtship romps that show 0.4 seconds of gameplay.
Pros: Graphics, big screen, not a gimmick
Cons: Terrible battery Life, poor marketing, forced UNNECESSARY firmware upgrades when you buy new software, dead pixels, smudges easily, scartches easily, lack of 2nd analog stick, lack of COMPETENT analog stick, poor placement of square button trigger, intentionally crippled clock speed
Summary: psp games on the mem stick run waaaaaaaaaayyy smoother, use less power, and load quicker than off the disc. deff worth it. if u get issues w/ playing psp games off the memstick, just stick a game in the tray.
Pros: Does everything i want it to. so far, i got a 4GB memory stick(from newegg), installed 3.10 modded firmware, and now i have a ton of classic Genesis, PS and psp games on it. everything runs great! good movie/mp3 player too!
