What Hi-Fi?
21 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The PlayStation portable (to give it its full name) isn't a new product, having been with us since 2005. We've always admired it for both the brilliance of its mobile gaming and the sheer tactility of its interface, but it'd be fair to say it hasn't all been plain sailing for Sony's portable powerstation.
  • Pros: Bright, colourful screen, superb user interface, excellent mobile gaming, increasingly broad range of features
  • Cons: Still limited in content options and capacity next to some alternatives, although they', re not games consoles

  • Conclusion: If you want the most powerful portable gaming machine on the market, with the slickest visuals around then this is undoubtedly the handheld machine for you. It’s got a bigger, smoother, brighter screen than previous models, plus new voice, messaging and web-links for the same price. The gaming catalogue of the PSP isn’t anywhere near as extensive or varied as the DS Lite’s , though, but with the likes of Patapon and FIFA 09 it’s improving. A quality machine.
  • Pros: Okay, so the Nintendo DS is a cutesy, fun, touchscreen-toting handheld, but Sony still provides the glorious eye-bleeding on-screen action. This third incarnation of the sleek, black multimedia machine boasts a screen with more colours than ever before, half the response time and five times the contrast ratio of the last version. What that means is, watch the Dark Knight on it and it literally will be the Dark Knight and not the Slightly Gloomy Knight. There’s also a ...
  • Cons: Don’t get us wrong, the screen is glorious, but occasionally you do get some annoying scan lines, which can mar your gaming/movie-watching experience. Also, battery life was poor before, but with the expanded screen sucking it dry quicker than a kid with a can of cola, you won’t be watching any Kevin Costner eoics (a good thing, maybe?).
