4.0 out of 5 stars PSP... November 9, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The PSP has a significant amount of features... you probably know that. So I'll cut to the important parts. The PSP is an excellent gaming machine. It's look and design is very nice, sharp, and sleek. The large plasma-like screen and the PSP engine manage to bring us vivid, sharp, PS2 like graphics. And as I said before, there are multimedia capabilities, however they are not pushed to their full potential. To store snything you will need a memory stick duo. Although the prices have dropped they are still expensive, especially if you want a large sized memory stick. UMD movies are also expensive, so don't buy this for movies alone. Here is how I rate it:

Graphics: 10/10

The graphics are absolutely mind blowing. For a handheld system, it doen't get any better than this. The frame rate of most games is excellent, and sharp, sleek character models are plenty in every game.

Design: 8.5/10

The look and the design of the PSP is great, however the absence of a second analogue stick makes SOME games are a LITTLE hard to play. However PSP games manage some other kind of control, so this isn't a big downside. Also, screen protecters are a must. The PSP is very, very susceptible to smudges and scratches.

Games: 9/10

Finally, some good games come out for the PSP. The games look and play great. These games include ACE COMBAT, DAXTER, TEKKEN, GTA: LIBERTY CITY STORIES, GTA: VICE CITY STORIES, MEDAL OF HONOR, SYPHON FILTER, CALL OF DUTY, NEED FOR SPEED, LOCOROCO, KILLZONE, BURNOUT, RIDGE RACER, ATV, METAL GEAR SOLID, and many, many more. Of course, there should be no comparing the PSP and NDS beacuse they both have PROS and CONS.

Features: 8/10

Video, music, photos all courtesy of an expensive memory stick. But it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love my PSP May 25, 2006
I commute into work every morning on the light rail in Portland Oregon. I bought myself a PSP earlier this past spring with the intension of watching my TiVo on it while I'm on the train. So every night, I let the TiVo download to my PC and it's kind of like a PSPcasting.

All of my Season Pass shows like Lost, My name is Earl, ER, Desperate Housewives, Numbers and all of my favorite shows I don't have time for I'm now watching on my PSP. I have a 2 gig memory card that is automatically loaded with my tv programs while I'm asleep and when I wake up in the morning I just pick up my PSP from the dock and go.

I also play video games on it, its great for that too. But I'm watching way more TV on it then playing games.

With out a doubt this is my favorite toy that I've purchase all year long, although it only half over, I don't think I'll be purchasing anything else that comes close to how much I enjoy this thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 199 Buncha Bang for buck January 3, 2007
By Hutch
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I was in love with my iPod.

I really don't think there is a music player -just a music player- that is better than the iPod. And I do not wish this to be an attack on the iPod, because it is NOT. Refer to this later on in the review....

But there is something on the market, that has been deadly silent that has all the ability of an iPod, of course it plays music, plays video, and games. And it not all that much bigger than the biggest iPod out there. What? The PSP does all that? I didn't know that either.

Lots of options crammed into this little doo dad. It is also Wireless, Internet ready, headphone jack, USB - there is a button for just about everything. The tiny insides of this little device must be crammed to the brim. Plays Video wonderfully, plays games great. (Loading time is a bit slow, but once loaded no interruptions.... and that is how I would like it, I hate game devices that take time out in the middle of action to catch up... would rather that all be done at the beginning). The movies are a small disk as well as the game disk.... easy to carry around. Small is indeed king here... the device does get a bit heavy after a while, but it OKAY to put it down and come back; but considering how much stuff it does, it should indeed be a tiny bit hefty.

Fact is, it is hard to give a good detailed review of this little device since it does so much, and some of the stuff is LITTLE stuff, like being able to save pics off the net, and use them as your wallpaper... it really is a little computer. I have had it a week and have not found anything that I don't like, and I know I have not found all the stuff there.

It is very good with a battery. 3 hours on the stock battery and you can play Dungeon Seige 2 with another person.

Wait ... I was new to the MP3 world a few years back when I bought my Rio S30S 64mb- in fact I still have it and use it! And BACK THEN, I was ALSO very computer incompetent and electronically out-of-date! When I wanted to buy something the salesperson always gave his-her best case scenario, in which case I ended up paying too much money for a lame product- - lies lies lies! Hello internet and the world of On-Line Product Reviews!! I love it!

And now that you have an insight to my lack of electronic experience, I can tell you that I never owned anything PlayStation before. After my Rio player, I decided to get wet with an N64. Oh yeah!! My friends and I were obsessed with endless gambling on the 4Player Mario Kart! Every night was an N64 session of mayhem and chaotic drinking! Used to be so much fun... awww but they're all married now. I needed something for my lonesome self and this seemed to be the gadget.

SPECS: Ummm, isn't this a USER Review?

USER FRIENDLINESS: I was a little worried about operating the keypad and afraid of screwing something up.. badly- but boy was I wrong. This thing is so easy to operate; I learned it with ease.

GAMING FEATURES: I bought the PSP for Gaming Portability 1st, Movies 2nd, MP3 Player 3rd, WiFi connection 4th, and Picture Viewing last (of course not 4pic storage-too many flash cards to worry about). If you consider those features in that order, you really don't have anything major to complain about because the games have state of the art graphics and speed. On the contrary, for True Gamers, there ARE many complaints on the subject of inserting the game in the unit; that takes about 30 to 40 seconds. Whatever! Go buy a portable.....
