The PSP is the first truly integrated handheld entertainment system designed to handle multiple applications — music, video, communication, and wireless networking, with games as its primary driver. PSP brings an unparalleled gaming experience to a handheld platform, allowing users to enjoy 3D games, with high-quality, full-motion video, and high-fidelity stereo audio. With graphics rendering capability comparable to that of PlayStation®2, PSP features a 4.3-inch wide screen, high-resolution TFT display. PSP also adopts a newly developed, proprietary compact but high-capacity (1.8GB) optical disc, Universal Media Disc (UMD), as its storage medium.

By Tsanche VINE VOICE on June 4, 2008

+A Very Powerful Handheld Device
+Plays music, movies, and allows you to look at photos
+Browsing online is fun
+A lot of accessories available
+Now has a good library of games
+Easy interface and control
+Very detailed screen and large


-Online browsing isn't that much fun
-Can't organize a music library and UMDs aren't all that fun to watch, even on road trips
-The battery life isn't long lasting
-The screen is easily damaged

When the original PSP launched back in 2005, it eventually became subjected to heavy criticism. Not necessarily the console itself, but mostly that much of what it did, people didn't see the use for in a handheld system, and the fact that its library of games wasn't incredible. Nevertheless, the PSP has still shown itself to be a powerhouse of a console.

First and foremost, this review is not here to talk about the Nintendo DS. If you would like a review or comparison to the Nintendo DS, I highly suggest you look for reviews under the Nintendo DS or use the forums. Most people on the amazon community will be very helpful in helping you decide on which handheld is the best for you.

The new PSP is much better than the original. It's slimmer, lighter, and a slightly bigger screen that actually makes some of the picture look a bit more crisp. Some games also run a little faster, and that more than helps the PSP out.

What the PSP has best been known for (and criticized the most for) is being a handheld entertainment center. It can do more than just play games. It can play music, go online, play movies, and you can look at photos. This is all built into the system and doesn't require you to purchase any extra peripherals to use.

Enough good things have been said about this PSP2001 (aka PSP slim and lite)
Just to emphasize
- Top notch screen
- Playing Madden on this and my xbox felt the same
- Extremely easy controls (well built buttons)
- Light weight (won't feel the weight when playing for long hours)
- Battery hardly used when on sleep mode, I have put this on sleep for days and then continued my game from where I left!
- Well designed
- Video quality is amazing
- Video podcast download over the wireless is a GREAT add-on. I watch CNN highlights on this.
- Updating firmware was easier than eating a muffin !

- None that I know of !
- A slight disappointment, if I may, I bought the component cable to connect to my 51" TV. The video quality of the podcasts was unbelievably clear. Now, I knew that the game won't use the entire TV screen (for those who don't know, the game will use about 60-70% of your TV screen). But the quality of the game video was bad, in fact Madden looked terrible on the TV! That is something I did not expect from PSP.

All-in-all, money well spent on the console. I recommend this to anyone, any age, who would like have mobility but still be able to play their Madden etc. as well as get bit more out of the console with video podcast downloads over the air or a music player or a 'OK' web browser or location free client or whatever

I was looking for a trip companion since I travel a lot. My options were between an IPOD video (80 gb) and Sony PSP to provide multiple media and entertainment on the go.

Pros of PSP over IPOD

1) Gaming is great.
2) Screen is big enough to watch a movie.
3) WiFi browsing is decent for airport/hotel hotspots.
4) Doesn't tie you up with any specific media manager.

Downsides of PSP over IPOD

1) Battery could last longer. I am getting a 4-5 hr. battery life. Good that many planes are coming with 110V power supply.
2) No HDD with the unit, but With a 8 GB memory stick is possible to upload all media you need for a trip and if you are always close to your notebook (my case) it's possible to update memory contents.
3) Music playback software is very, very basic.
4) Unit is bulky.

At the end, PSP was the winner mainly for screen size and gaming features. So far (2 weeks) I am very pleased with the product. Some suggested add ons : 8 Gb memory stick (dual pro), hard carring case, soft headsets (did not like sony's original ones).

PSP 2000 Console - Piano Black- This system has everything that the original PSP system has with added colors for the background, reduced weight, a slimmer design with a changed (for the best) placement for some ports and buttons, more internal memory for faster loading times, redesigned buttons for easier gameplay and a new finish that is harder to smudge and finger-print. It is the exact same price as the original system but it is essentially so much more. Worth every penny.

PSP Daxter Entertainment Pack - Ice Silver - Exact same as mentioned above, except it is a really cool Ice Silver color. This is the system that is included with the Daxter/Family Guy/1GB Memory Stick bundle. It's $199.99, which is cheaper than what just the system and the 1GB memory stick are worth together. If you don't like either the game and/or the UMD that come with it, then sell them! You still get a kick-balls system and a 1GB memory stick! This is easily the best deal of the three!

Sony PSP Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron Entertainment Pack - Ceramic White - Same system as the previous two, but it is Ceramic White and comes with a really great Star Wars game. That's it, though. No memory stick or UMD movie. Just Battlefront (would have been better if it were only $179.99 or even $189.99). If you like Star Wars and need a PSP (especially with that cool-balls Darth Vader helmet picture on the back), this is a no brainer!

Choose whichever bundle (or not) suits you best!
