Review of "Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Slim & Lite"
I use to own the PSP but I unfortunately broke it. Then I bought this little thing, and I wasn't dissapointed. It is almost exactly the same as the original PSP but slightly smaller. It is also important to note this change does not affect the screen size.
Graphics capabilityPretty much out-classes most other portable gaming consoles. It's basically like having a playstation controller wrapped around a TV, albiet a small one and it is capable of showing the same games as on the main, stationary playstations.
In terms of volume I dont have a problem with it. Obviously it's no surround sound system but for it's size it can make alot of noise. It also has pretty good sound quality as well and doesn't sound hollow like some portable game consoles do. There is also a headphone socket which fits most types of head phones for when you don't want to disturb the rest of the train.
Range of Extra FeaturesThis is where it truly shines, theres pretty much nothing it can't do in the world of portable devices. It can play music and videos, both of which can be added to it from your PC through the use of a USB cable. There is a video-out port for when you want to use your TV's larger screen and speakers. It can access wifi to browse as well as to use it's messenger. You can also get films to watch on it.
Ease of use
Can't really get much simpler, put the game in and turn it on, no need for an instruction manual. There is also a feature in which the PSP saves where you are if you turn it off mid-game, providing it has power, which is helpful in any case but is amazing for those games that only offer start and end of level saving, which annoys the hell out of me I just have to add. If you turn it on without a game in it boots to an easy to navigate home menu which allows you to access a wide range of extra features (previous title). It is also quite erganomic, it does not force you to bring your hands very close together as many portable games consoles and mobile phones do.
Manufacturer SupportThere is a booklet of trouble shooting that comes with the PSP that seems to address any possible problem you could encounter but, as far as I can see, no helpline to call etc.
Value For Money
Well worth it, will eliminate bordem whenever you are forced to sit in one place for any extended period of time, such as public transport.
A nice little buy, I now take this pretty much everywhere with me, waiting has never been more fun.
