“I am very happy with my purchase, This PSP is awesome...”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by AndyRageBaby (1 review written)

I am very happy with my purchase, This PSP is awesome and so much better than the old Gameboy's that I use to play on, It is glossy black with a slick look to it and great to handle when playing games, the graphics are excellent on the decent sized screen. The games are like mini CD's in little cartages I think this is unusual and adds a good touch. I now have four games I play on this and I am really happy with how responsive the PSP is, all the games play well and are really good with… Read Full Review

“Got mine for christmas, love it. ”

Written on: 07/01/2009 by gaoler (5 reviews written)

Got mine for christmas, love it.
Not a great game player, poker and puzzles mostly find shoot 'em ups a bit difficult!
Very useful for films and music on the train, the internet browser is useful but limited on memory, better than my mobile though.
Must have gadget!… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2008 by z93 (1 review written)

Good points is that you can store videos, songs and more also on the internet. Bad points is that their is no decent games on the PSP and that its kinda boaring once you start playing it you tend to fall out of it in the first 2 weeks then go back and fowards with it. Over all playing the PSP is no greater experience than playing a normal ps2 they rushed it out to fast… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2008 by markiepoos (12 reviews written)

I love my PSP but I do have down sides; I use it for everything such as my internet for when I am away from home. I can connect to my PS3 with it and watch television with it (location free player). I like the way I can put my music on it and videos. i like the way you can download torrents with it. I like the way you can choose different themes for it and the ability you can connect a camera to it. I like the way you can share games with other people.
I don't like the size of it but this… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2008

I would recommend this product because it is the future in handheld gaming. It is best in its field and is worth the buy. It is practically your MP3, TV and Playstation. It would be great if Sony made a psp with a camera though… Read Full Review

Good all around player, fingerprints can get a little annoying as they apply easily once touching the screen, good games for the PSP, very small and take anywhere. Well recommend this games console, Sony have done a very good job with this PSP… Read Full Review

Portable, better graphics, the only bad points in my opinion with the Sony Psp, is the range of games however I believe this will is bettering in time. It also can be easily broken as far as I am aware therefore take good care of this game console. Great but with a little and minor problem, therefore well recommend the PSP handheld… 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: 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: 18/08/2006 by muchoman (7 reviews written)

The screen on the Sony PSP games console is very large for its size, and the graphics are to die for! The price has gone down this year to $200. The internet browsing is very cool, and it works well. Using the memory, you can upload movies, music and photo's easily. The games are great, and they work OK with the limited buttons. The movies are full length and have subtitles and different languages. It's very durable. I having dropped it on a hard wood floor and not even scratched… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2006 by jazzRS360 (15 reviews written)

When it came to handheld gaming, it used to be the Gameboy from Nintendo that ruled this neck of the woods, but how times have changed. Sony, one of the major world players in technology, present us with the PSP, or Playstation Portable, to give it its full name.
It is the most powerful mainstream handheld out there, and it plays games which look as though they've been ripped straight out of the main TV consoles.
The PSP also plays many different media formats, and it can be a solid… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2006 by PhilipMc (1 review written)

Ah, the PSP! Something we kids of the 90's always dreamed of and never thought possible when we were button-basing away on Crash Bandicoot on the Playstation. But yes, it's true, it's a Playstation, and it's in your pocket!

First impressions when I opened the box? Wow. I of course - as always - am very impatient and had to have it on day one, and thus opening mine was the first one I had seen the flesh. Damn was it shiny, and that screen!

So a further 8 months down the line after the 'wow… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/04/2006 by Matt1986 (4 reviews written)

I got my Sony PSP in October 2005, the only reason I got it was because I had a broken leg and so I wasn't going out much. It cost me £220 new and was worth it for the amount of time i spent playing on it. The screen is big and clear, the game play is second to none and it's way better than a DS!

It's not really worth the bother if you have a PS2, and I can't use mine on the train or in the car because it causes me to get motion sickness, as it would for most people I think! But if your stuck… Read Full Review
