Pros and cons of PSP (review included)

Here I will list all the pros and cons of the PSP handheld system

PSP pros:

1.PS2 quality graphics (128 bit I believe, give or take a bit or 2)
2. Can play movies on a data stick
3. Can play music on a data stick
4.Wireless multiplayer online or off (Uses wi-fi)
5. Analog stick
6. can effectively port most ps2 and ps1 games (no dual analog so not everything can be ported, although they will no doubt find a way around this.)
7. Huge 4.3" screen
8. supports over 16.7 million colors, more than 16.69 million more than the GBA.
9. usb support
10. comes with a rechargeable battery (contrary to popular belief)
11. charges in less than half the time the DS does
12. good looking LCD display
13. sleek design
14. WEB ACCESS!!!! (via a legal hack)
15. can be used in a way not intended without the use of emulators (i.e. scanning memos on your computer and porting them to your PSP in a Word document, making it a phone book!)
16. 333 megahertz
17. Headphone jack
18. can store photos on a data stick
19. Can turn on instantly from the off position (you flip the switch and a quarter second later you are playing)

PSP Cons:

1.every once in a while on certain games pixels will burn out and come back 5 seconds later good as new. Not a big problem but it does get annoying.
2. Battery not as powerful as DS or GBA, 5-10 hours of gameplay per charge
3. Does not get too loud, I reccomend (sp?) playing with headphones if you were looking forward to killing your hearing, with headphones it is really loud.
4. You have to reset the internal clock if you let the battery get to 0%
5. loading times, just like the consoles.
6. The compatible memory sticks are quite a rip off
7. Some what more fragile (and better looking) than the DS


So there you have it, the pros and cons of a GREAT hand held
I give it a 9/10

I will check back here frequently and will accept ideas for additional pros and/or cons. Just please, no comments such as:
OMG T3H DS PWNS THE PSP PUT THAT IN YOUR REVIEW

oh, and please, if you are a Nintendo fanboy, don't come in here and spam everything as i will have you modded.

you can contact me by posting on this thread, I will see it

feed back is also appreciated

thanx hope i hear from sumone soon

Whaddya mean there's a rechargeable battery? Can you swap out the existing battery so that one is always charge?

Unregistered guest
Sorry, but what is porting? and how do you do it.... And what about web access through a legal hack?

dear Lookin,

it comes with a rechargable battery already installed in it so you do not have to buy new batteries, you DO however have to use the charger it comes with to plug it in to an outlet so you can recharge it.

Porting is taking a game or Idea that has been on one cansole for a long time and putting it on a different console. Only the developers of the game can do it, and even if you somehow find out how to port a game yourself, it would be illegal.

the web access through a legal hack is a hack on the psp that allows you to use the one web page featured with the game wipeot pure as a browser for the whole web.

hope that helped

I cannot figure Y people would ever buy hand-helds unless they are true 'gamefreaks' ....or nighttime security guards ! heh heh

I mean u got your big screen tv @ home & console graphics are so much better to look at than clenching your eyes to look @ a stupid 'Huge 4.3" screen' not to mention big sound off your Tv/home sound system & they even cost twice as home consoles costs .

Personally i have never wasted my $ buying ANY handheld & would not care for it if given free even !

now u dont even have to hack to get the internet browser they released an update that makes it do that on its own.

a disadvantage is that to get an update u either have to be at your pc and download to memory card (harder) or have wirelss access point.

PSP is more than just a hand held game, it can play movies, and mp3, and photos, and also you can preview a pre-recorded movie. I want to use the unit as multi-media purposes. To show off my music studio and preview my music.

I dont have one yet, but I would imagine if you do have a xbox at home want a hand held device. Then this is the ticket! I am getting one. Well worth it.

cheers

How about flying? It'd be cool to be able to watch a movie, play a few hours worth of games and listen to music, without carrying a portable dvd player, an iPod and a GBA:SP.

>> watch the onboard movie or take a nap
Onboard movies suck! Just 5-6 hours of nighttime sleeping will do. :=)

>> In the car watch the frickin scenery.
10-13 hours of mid-western highway scenery!!!!!

>> ppl r going nutz about it like its the hottest thing since sliced bread.
Well, it is kinda the hottest thing to happen to handheld gaming in the recent past, right?

"as far as flying. as long as you have 10 batterys you will be fine because the psp sucks batterys like you wouldent belive"
I bet it dose because of that internal battery good luck with finding use for the 10 batteries though.

The PSP doesn't have a camera built-in. Some hope that someone will come out with a USB camera for the PSP. As for looking at pics on the PSP, you'll need to get the pics onto a Memory Stick Duo and then go from there.

>> Is it hard to get music/pics onto the PSP?

Not at all. Connect the PSP via the USB cable to a PC, and you'll be dragging and dropping files just like a flash drive. Its fast too.

1. Music goes into a folder named PSP\MUSIC
2. Photos go into a folder named PSP\PHOTO

You can create sub-folders (1 level down only) within the PSP\MUSIC (egs. PSP\MUSIC\ROCK) or PSP\PHOTO (PSP\PHOTO\WALLPAPERS) folder.

Videos are a different deal. You have to convert them to .MP4 format, using some free software (search on google and choose the one you like). This process takes a while, if the file size is big, even on my relatively fast PC. :-( Sony probably wants more UMD movie sales so they didn't support MPG. :-( But, music and pics are very very easy to transfer back and forth, without any special software.

If you buy the PSP Giga Pack, you'll get a 1 GB Memorystick Duo, quality earphones, etc. PSP uses a smaller version of the old MemoryStick, called the MemoryStick Duo. You can buy Sandisk's MS stick and use it in the PSP.

a small question : i'm thinking of buying a psp giga pack, but someone told me that with the psp giga pack, the psp is more up to date, disabling you to share/copy games onto your memory card en play them on the psp. He said something about the psp from the giga pack using firmware 2.0 instead of (psp value pack using) firmware 1.5 (the system where you CAN play copied games). Should I buy (t)his crap or should I buy a psp giga pack?
 

help!

>Not at all. Connect the PSP via the USB cable to a PC, and you'll be dragging and dropping files just like a flash drive. Its fast too.

1. Music goes into a folder named PSP\MUSIC
2. Photos go into a folder named PSP\PHOTO

I tryed doing that and it didnt work.. i tryed everything... I read the manual (unlike a lot of retards) and found out you needed to buy a special adaptor to write things on the memorystick duo, one is this true, and two... if no. 1 is yes then how much do they cost and where would i buy one?

games are for all ages,
Chauncey must be one of those BORING persons that dont have taste for interesting stuff (oh yeah, you have to be an adult, and act like one hehehe, stupid). I know a few.
by the way, you can also read books on a PSP,
and if you are doing laundry or on a trip, or waiting for someone its perfect.

the PSP is so-so, i bought a second gen(i guess?) like 5 or 6 months after they came out, doesnt have any problems, but its nothing like console replayability. i cant just pick up my psp and play games like i could my xbox/ps2/Gc/snes/genesis/even gameboy (yeah im a nerd, i like old school games) but for trips and whatnot where you arent driving, its great, and now with their new firmware you can surf the internet on it
