Written on: 22/03/2008

Good points about PSP are that it is a pocket Playstation, which you can carry around easily without having to take of the plugs and than packing them up. The PSP just makes the lifes fro children who like video games so much easier. But overall I like the PSP because I have one on me. So don ' t wait and get PSP for yourself from anywhere you find it cheap… Read Full Review

Great choice of games, good graphics and amazing features, like the ability to store videos and music, and wireless internet access.

Not an ideal console to keep in your pocket, if it was slightly smaller it would be great.

In general, amazing and well recommend the Sony PSP… Read Full Review

So i got this two years ago. I was about to wet my pants i was so excited! so here i am two years later and there have not been a lot of good games since, and i'm getting sick of tony hawk. the internet is the coolest thing ever! it's wireless and runs real nice, simple set up, i can wirelessly get updates, listen to radio and much more. i've dropped it a few times, made the mistake of letting it sit in 100% humidity but it refuses to die. i'm considering throwing it off a skyscraper to see if… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2008

The PSP is a good move for Sony as it has sold nearly 2 million consoles already. So this is not just for gaming but also for viewing photos, watching videos, listening to music and doubles up as a good modem.

I like the psp as you can play games on it, also you can watch videos on umd format or convert dvd's to playable format so you can play dvd quality films on it but have to be converted first look in google for how to do this i think it is ask a website where he tells you what u need and how to do it and last but not least you can use it to surf the net and check email if in a wifi hotspot

For many years I had always relied on a Game boy to entertain me on the move,and when Sony announced they were going to give it a go I was a little intrigued as to how they would better NIntendo...after all they have been in the game for ever and were going to take some rivaling...let alone beating it....but you know what...I believe Sony have pulled it off with this little beauty....and what a beauty it is.
Before you critics out there think I'm a Sony fan...''I'M NOT''...I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2007 by RobBuckland (31 reviews written)

Got our PSP about a year ago, what an amazing piece of kit it is! It seems expensive but when you realise what it can do it is actually a bargain! Perfect for holidays.
The quality of the screen is amazing, watched films (UMDs) on it while on holiday, it is much better than our portable DVD players despite the smaller screen. Games are good but still only have a few due to price, at least the films are getting cheaper now (picked up 3 for £10 from Amazon). Then you can put photos, music or… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2007 by RUBBER2405 (8 reviews written)

I bought my Sony PSP just before Christmas 2006 and it is the best gadget I have bought to date (and I've bought quite a few!).

Games prices are fair and the quality of many of the games is awesome.
There are games to suit everyone out there, so get searching.
The console is well made and it goes on all my holidays and long journeys with me in its protective case.
I get about 4-5 hours of gaming if I am lucky out of a full charge, but i always take the mains charger which doubles as a power… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2007 by Rabbit banger (15 reviews written)

The first time I saw the PSP, imported from Japan I could not believe the screen size compared to other hand-helds, It was a thing of beauty. The first thought that crossed my mind was "i need one of these".
I was astounded by the sound quality and especially the graphics, sony has brought out a good selection of games and films now.

The controls are very well placed and are very responsive, especially the little joystick; which i thought was the single speaker- I thought wrong as the PSP… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2007 by theshootist (92 reviews written)

I bought my PSP at first release in America while managing a large video game retail store.
While, the overall North American launch for it was considered a "dud', I found this console to be the pinnacle of SONY video game entertainment technology. Compared to the PS1 and PS2, this console actually works as intended, and for more than one year at a time!
The game selection has greatly improved over the past two years, and more and more UMD movies are being released.
The wi-fi gaming… Read Full Review

I've had a go of my brother's PSP, and it's really neat. I would recommend this hand-held device no problem!

Written on: 02/01/2007 by sandman1289 (1 review written)

I've had the Sony PSP for about 2 months now and let me tell you that it is simply amazing. It offers everything that you could ask for in a portable entertainment device- great looks, amazing graphics, decent sound quality, photo and picture viewing functions, music and video playback capabilities and an amazing, easy-to-use WLAN Interface. The TFT screen is out of this world and the games, coupled with the highly responsive buttons are intensely immersing. I would say that the battery life… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2006 by thecomplainer (1 review written)

Now I know this probably sounds a bit sad but I only got the PSP a few days ago and at first I was really excited about it but once I used it I found that I wasn't really that impressed with it. I mean there's hardly any games on it, the battery life is only 4 hours, there's only one analogue stick and it's nothing like what I expected. I really am not impressed with it at all and I think that Sony has gone way out of its league this time… Read Full Review

I read your review with a smile on my face and wondered to myself 'why on earth did you buy the PSP to begin with' because all your negative points are readily available out there.

Written on: 10/12/2006 by mero91 (1 review written)

The PSP is the best portable video gaming system - I think it beats the DS Lite. The PSP is so useful - it can have a camera, access to the Internet wirelessly, online play and free games as well.
So... if your a little confused by the PSP and DS - trust me the PSP is better, an example: The PSP's screen has about 17 million colors while the DS Lite only has around 65 thousand - big difference - also, who needs a touch screen on a gaming system?… Read Full Review
