PSP: Handheld gaming system developed by Sony, a competitor to Nintendo's DS. The PSP is a great handhelp, but suffered a few drawbacks early on. The PSP uses UMD's (Universal Media Disk) to run it's games, which can hold about 1.8 gigabytes of data, more than enough to run a game with great graphics and a large lifespan. The PSP has a varying battery lifespan depending on the game you play, or what other funtions you use, such as watching films or music. A game that has a lot going on with great graphics will have a shorter battery life, wheras a simple puzzler will have a much longer one. The PSP uses a simple, effective memory stick for game saves, music, updates, and anything else that takes your fancy. You do NOT need to buy these to run your PSP, as it functions perfectly well with the 32 megabyte stick provided, or the 1.0 gigabyte stick provided with the Giga Pack. You DO need a larger stick to run the PSP at it's full potential, but it is not nessasary.

Buddy 1: "Hey man is that the new PSP? Awesome, can I have a go?
Me: "Sure, Lemme just finish this level and save."
Buddy 2: "I wish I had waited a month or two more and bought that instead of the DS."
Me: "Don't feel bad man, once Buddy 1 here is done on it you can have a go and I'll try Mario, okay?"
Buddy 1: "Wow this is awesome!"
Buddy 2: "Yeah!"
Me: "Mario ain't bad, but why do those trees seem so flat?!"
