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.

if you thought HALO 2 was the decline of ameriican civilization, think again.

as of 4/4/05 the psp is about $150. Yeah yeah it holds MP3s but only about 4 of them. you can buy extra memory for twice as much of the PSP itself.
save yourself the trouble kid, get yourself an Xbox.

Playstation Portable

A mediocre portable hand-held system. It hasn't been out yet, so I can't really judge this very accurately.

So far, there has been a couple of bugs on the PSP. There's one where the UMD disk flies out while you're playing and one where the disk reads error, but it should be fixed when it comes out. It plays graphics equal to the PS1. Also the battery life is EXTREMELY low.

You can play PSP games, music, and videos using Sony Mini-Disks that hold approximately 1.5 GB of space.
If you're going for games, go for DS, and Cloud, you cannot judge portable devices to consoles you fucking idiot.

HEY DICKS! m pissed that ur trash talking this amasing portable device. my shithole of a school let us out for 4 days for spring break in which i gathered all my pennys and bought me a psp. i was originally gunna get an ipod but i heard from a friend, John Capinmyasshole, that this PSP would rock. so i got it the day it came out and i must say, as a person who was mildley exited when the ds came out, and who has never played a video game for more than 1 hours straight, this thing rox. so far, in 4 days, with one game (need for speed underground rivals) i have logged a total race time (racing, not menu just full on throttle racing) of 9 and 1/2 hours. the graphics are as good if not better than the ps2 and i dont have any cracked lcd crystals. also, my battery lasts an average of 7 hours using it, not just sitting it on a table with the power on, i mean racing or looking at pics or watching SPIDERMAN 2, or rocking out to music or watching internet movies. 19.45 thumbs up
i need to fill up 20 lette.....
