The psp 3000 is the 3rd psp and includes a better screen with twice the colour pallett and is glare resistant also it includes a built in mic which i have not used.
The psp in general is a brilliant console with a wide variety of brilliant games including: little big planet, god of war, call of duty, gran turismo , killzone and resistance. Most games are brilliant and there haver been some hidden gems found like patapon and some psp minis are cheap fun.
The screen is bright and vibrant with a pixel size of 480x272 which isnt bad its anti glare helps but is not perfect.
The psp can handle ps2 like graphics which is good considering its size (roughly just over 2cm thick).
The controls are good but i dont see why they cant add another analog pad but other than that the all feel great some action games suffer from the controls but many games have managed to get around the problem.
the umds are loud and slow loading compared to digital downloads but ALOT cheaper which is a huge bonus.
The psp has two speakers on the front which pump out a reasonable amount of sound but it has a standard headphone jack for earphones and headphones.
Accessories to get
Yo will need a case as the screen is unprotected and a memory stick is a must as it has no internal memory, and you may want some umd cases, and if you plan on going for long drives or flights you may need another battery (see my other review on the battery for more details) which lasts for 4-6 hours but is very hard to find a spare online.
It is a great portable consol which in my opinion destroys the ds which i owned before.
