Im quite tempted into getting the PSP, is it recommended by people? what are hte graphics like and is it easy to use? What games are available, how long does the battery last etc etc? I loved my game boy when i was younger, so will i like this too?

 

Also can it play Mp3s?

 

Thanks for any info!

Yes it can play MP3's with decent quality.

I don't know how long the battery lasts but it's easy to use and the graphics are quite decent also. If you have the money to spend, then you aren't wasting it if you buy a PSP....and one for me. :D

 

I know about it because i'ma lways watching my mate on his and having a go. Trust, they are good.

The PSP is a nice bit of kit, I have an American one myself. There's no major difference between UK and American one's except that I can only buy UMD Movies from America for the system which I don't really mind as they're alot cheaper over there than the £17 plus we have to pay over in UK Land. Games are universal so you can buy games from UK, America, Japan etc. America seems to be the cheapest place as well, although you can pick up some bargins in the UK.

 

Battery life depends on what you're doing with the system. If you're constantly using it to play games or movies, it won't last as long. I think it lasts around 4 hours. If you're using it just to listen to MP3's, Look at Photo's or even surfing the net you'll get more juice from it.

 

Graphics are good enough, certainly on level with early PS2 games which is definately good for a handheld system and as I said plays Movies as well if you're on the go, certainly better than being bored on long journies

 

The DS is a great alternative as well, solid system but doesn't allow to listen to MP3's, Suft the net or watch movies. That said it does cost aroud £100 less than a PSP.

 

I don't think you can go wrong with the PSP, solid little machine that does anything you could probably want it to on the go.

If you get a good size memory stick, then it's good for an mp3 player. Before I got GTA and SmackDown, that's what I used it for 90% of the time.

But it's HUGE in comparison to the MP3 players that can get now, and you're more likely to get it stolen from you than a little 512mb MP3 player. :P

Thats true, but is there any point in my buyinfg a seperate MP3 player if the PSP does it for me?

 

Also I have a Sony Digital Camera, can i use the memory stick from that or are the PSP ones a different type?

 

And finally, anyone got a list, or link to a list, of games available?

It uses the memory stick pro duo. If you get a gigabyte stick (or bigger - there is now a 4gb harddrive for it), then there is no need to buy a seperate mp3 player.

What do you mean a 4 gig hard drive? do you mean a seperate one that plugs in or a memory stick? is there anyinternal memory?

 

i am sorry for all the questions but the money im using is from my parents as my other christmas pressie broke! I dont wanna buy it if its pants. I think it also helps i dont have a ps2 so i wont have played many of these games before so itll all be new to me.

If you wnat to save some money get a cheap mp3 player and a Nintendo DS. The games are great, Paula loves her DS and when I have played it the gameplay is amazing.

The PSP is the perfect hand held accompanyment. It plays games, which are by far the best around (for example GTA:Liberty City Stories, Pro Evo 5, Smackdown vs Raw 06, Burnout Legends and so many more), UMD movies (which are widely available), mp3s (and if you download the program you can use custom tracks on GTA), MP4 video files, and you can view photos. There is also the wireless multiplayer capabilities, and i havent tried it yet but the internet access to play other gamers at multiplayer worldwide.

I got a PSP for Christmas, and it's fantastic except for the two dead pixels, because the wife bought it online I'm still waiting for it to be sorted although it is getting changed/refunded. Dead pixels are apparently pretty common in the PSP, if I were you i'd buy it from a shop and check the screen before you leave.

 

Other than that I haven't a bad word to say about it, in fact it's the bestest thing in the whole world ever, get one NOW!!!!

This sounds like a stupid question but will i need to turn it on to check the pixels? And will there acutally be battery power so i can do it in the shop?

Hopefully i can get the value pack and a couple of games for around 200-250, thats the sort of prices ive been seeing anyway.

If i was not so busy during January then i would almost certainly be purchasing a PSP, the whole prospect of just being able to whip out a little machine during my lunch break and play Pro Evo or watch Extras on UMD just excites me.

 

Come Febuary i'll definatly be getting one of these gizmos.
