Piece of Shit Portable System.
Basically Sony is out for your money. They crammed a whole bunch of shit that you don't need or already have into one thing that lasts about 2 hours.
You can easily have a computer that plays, games, music, and a digital camera or a camera phone that takes pictures and it'll last much much longer. So why buy one? Ask yourself that, and get a DS!
Me: Look at that kid sitting in the cornor playing PSP all buy himself.
Friend: I can't believed he pissed his money on that piece of shit!
Me: Oh well let's get back to Metriod Prime Hunters Online with the Nintendo DS and Pwn some fools!
1. PlayStation Portable: Sony's Handheld PlayStatio-*battery dies*
Hey, wanna play PSP? *disc read error* *UMD flies out*
Stands for PlayStation Portable, Sony's handheld video-game device. Released in Japan in December 2004 and March 2005 in the USA.
That kid is playing his PSP
All of you are wrong. It stands for Pretty Small Penis.
WOW, Jake has a PSP. And did you really play it??? Thats gross!!!
A promising handheld manufactured by Sony which has fallen relatively short of expectations, due to numerous fundamental flaws and a lacklustre games catalogue. Beyond the slick, glossy look and expansive but half-baked media capabilities, lies a surface which attracts finger oils like an oxy pad and demands more care than a mentally-deficient infant, poor memory options with the outrageously expensive 'memory duo stick', a piss-poor battery life, which despite being dependent on how graphically intensive a game is, is still unacceptably low, and a software catalogue which comprises of a plethora of ports and rehashes.
Regardless, it has phenomenal technical capabilities and better titles are further down the line, such as Exit.
One of its trademark symbols is reflective of its functions, which include pictures, movies, music and most importantly, games. In addition, it has its own web browser and frequent firmware updates add various new features, such as support for different file formats.
Open-minded gamer: It's difficult for me to say a whole lot of positive things about the PSP at this moment in time, but eventually Sony will iron out these first-generation flaws and we'll see a better range of games.
Both sony and nintendo fans are acting ridiculous. Ds and psp are both wonderful systems, equally revolutionary in their own way, as well as they both have their own faults. Here we go:
Cost: The DS is an incredible low price as we would expect from Nintendo. Yes, the psp is expensive, but considering it has dvd capabilities and other functions, you cant expect it to cost as much as a DS.
Controls/size: Both of these systems were originally flawed in this category. The ds was bulky and fragile, but the newly released ds lite fixed these problems. As for the psps poor control and size...its Sonys first handheld, give them a break. And the low battery, why the hell would you play for 6 hours straight anyway??
Games: I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF PEOPLE SAYING THE DS IS A KIDDY SYSTEM! It is indeed not, they are quality games, that were actually created with care and knowledge of what was going on. The graphics are revolutionary for a handheld. The psp has great games, and slightly better graphics, but graphics do not matter, gameplay does, so its a plus.
In conclusion: Both systems are revolutionary with their graphics, capability, and design. Neither one is better than the other, as their pros and cons even each other out. By bashing because of simple factors only shows you have nothing better to do
I prefer ds, but the psp is great as well.
Hey, I love the psp, but I think Ill give the ds a shot.
short for playstation portable, it is a portable gaming system recently made by sony entertainment in an effort to sweep the legs of nintendo out from under them. at its release the psp said to play games, music, and movies on one system. initially the idea seemed good, but many people began to realize the fatal flaws that Sony had made, including it's proprietary UMD discs for games and movies, a short battery life, bad coding. but above all the biggest mistake for sony was that honestly all they had done recreate the laptop computer, which has done everything the PSP does for the last 3 years.
UMD's cost about the same as a DVD, but can only be used on the PSP, while the DVD can be used by anything with a dvd drive on it.
Sony released for mandatory firmware updates in the first six months to prevent hacking.
the best selling games for the playstation pointless have been racers or puzzle games.
A fairly expensive portable system. Can display near PS2 quality graphics, and also can play movies and store MP3s.
Basically, if you have the money to spend and want more than a game system, buy a PSP. If you have a smaller budget and want a game system, buy a Nintendo DS. Oh yeah, the PSP has less battery life than the DS. Also, Sony has such a fanbase that most people won't consider buying a DS, though it is (IMO) the better system. Damn Sony fanboys.
Someone: I bought a PSP!
Someone Else: I bought a DS!
Someone: DS sucks.
Someone Else: The DS rocks.
Someone: *sony fanboy rage*
Someone Else: F*** off.
