I would hold out for the new gpx , Linkage.

If the gpx dev scene is a vibrant as the current gp32 dev scene it should be quite a machine. You can't beat playing snes games on your morning train journey.

I imported my PSP from Japan a while ago, it's a nice console, wipeout:pure is an ace game, and get a nice ms so u can put vids and music on it. Seriously worth the money Smile

ya ... and

for movies .. copy them to your PC, convert them to avi, and save them on a memory card, pop it into your iPaq and voila ... a movie, freind of mine does this with an old crappy Palm Zire 71, works great

i think this works much better then BUYING movies for a PSP first of all because u need to buy 2 copys of one movie for the PSP, one DVD, one PSP, with an iPaq, Palm, whatever u don't need to buy second copies of everything

My brother and I bought the japanese versions, I cant fault it, so far its been allover the place with me and took a lot of stick and its still fine, Ive got ridge racer, lumies, metal gear acid, wipeout pure, and tiger woods golf, all excellent titles and I also bought a bigger mem stick for music.

I cant fault it and its worth noting that im a dyed in the wool pc gamer, I have an xbox but thats no more than a glorified dvd player, Ive never had, been impressed by, nor wanted anything playstation, but this changed my mind, versatile and fun, ignore the hater buy one now.

Btw if you do travel a lot a backup battery is invaluable.

Can you put movies onto the memory stick and watch them that way on the PSP?

The GPX2 gizmo looks pretty good but how much will it cost and will it ever come out in europe? It looks like one of those gadgets that will be native to the Far East only. Lucky bastards with their high gadgetery and pretty women.

My beef with the PSP is that it wants to be more than a handheld game console. Yeah it has a lot of neat functions, like wifi innerwebz and the ability to watch movies on a tiny display.. but what good is that when the games (so far) have all sucked?

How much does anyone use ahandheld......rwally im curious?


If plays music?

So does winamp, a cd player or a disman/mp3 player.


It plays games? So does [insert system here]

It has a web browser?

so does [insert whatever you want here]





It just a expensive toy.

It does exactly what it says on the box, and as anyone here will testify most handhelds suffer because of screen quality, not the psp, its screen is quite frankly superb for gaming and movies, everytime i use it im still impressed.

The sound quality playback is also top notch, the guy who says the titles sucks obviously is to discerning for us mere mortals and has a big beef with the whole psp thing.

It is in my opinion relatively cheap, and worth every penny.

Like u say theres plenty of other items available that can do what it does, so it comes down to preference, as for the original post....

DeMundus you wont be disappointed.

I pre-ordered a ceramic white japanese PSP w/firmware2.0 with Lumines and Metal Gear Acid a couple of weeks ago. I'll get them in 2-3 weeks and I'm really looking forward to that. :)

It arived today! ive been playing with it for a few hours now, wipeout pure is a great game, awsome music, go get a copy :P

I updated to 2.0 off the bat.. dident even chech what version I had anyway, the internet is nice, I can check my email, evne though writing on the little keyboard takes FOREVER, I can browse image boards, except some images that are over 1000x1000 pixels sometimes dont have enough memory to be displayed.. dont know the actuial limit.

Ive filled up the 32 mb memory card that came with it with bout 70 pics, and 3 short videos I converted with this free program.. it woudent convert half the files i told it to though, like wmv files :/, using some photos as wallpapers, and i have to say this is a nice lcd, no dead pixels (was very paranoid about that) but thank god its perfect, the viewing angle is great, the games dont take long to load at all, here let me load up wipeout pure.... mm one sec seems i had to many tabs open on the interweb :P it froze.. gotta restart it, anyway the game basicayl starts up instantly, ok, took 17 seconds to load the level, not bad at all.

anyhoo, I would post pictures but i packed everything up since im moving in a day or 2.. now im gonna go win more races..
