Excerpt: I wouldn't recommend this over the Nintendo DS. There are too many problems with it. The battery life is low, it's bulky and doesn't have alot of quality games. If you want it for videos you could get a IPOD Touch or any smartphone. The battery won't last for more then 2 hours and that's only for the 2 months out of the box. For a portable system it's hard to carry around. You can't fit it in your pocket. The game library isn't that great.
Excerpt: i feel that the psp has little to offer in terms of fun. it does go online but the navigation menus are quite cumbersome. i would like it if they made it more user friendly. i simply do not find it as fun as the nintendo ds. it is not very compact either. if it folded down it would be better. this day and agemany things that play games are very small, like cell phones.
Excellent fun -- Until the screen cracked on both PSP's
18 August 2007
Excerpt: I loved this system, until I dropped it on my foot and the screen developed a crack down one side. The system works fine -- you just can't see anything. It belong to my friends son, so I felt obligated to buy a replacement. He put it in his carry on luggage and guess what he found when he got it out to play on the plane ride? Yep... cracked and unusable. I love the system enough to of consider buying the $70 replacement screen to fix the orginal one.
Excerpt: I'm very upset b/c i just purchased a 3rd PSP for my son. The first got misplaced, the 2nd totally just stopped working a month after the warranty expired. And now the 3rd one that i just got 3 wks has stopped loading the games. I'm so pissed b/c they are $200.00 and they are clearly not worth it. If my child didn't love it so much i wouldn't even bother with it.
