Hand held system for serious gamers

 

When it comes to hand held video game systems, reviewers say the Sony PSP-3000 is the best bet for serious gamers, because it offers more realistic graphics and a larger game library than the Nintendo DSi (*Est. $150). The Sony PSP-3000 includes a...

Large, 4.3-inch LCD display, built-in Wi-Fi and Skype, good graphics and game selection

Sony PSP-3000 Review

 

Nearly three years after its original release, the PSP is still going strong. Nearly each month this year the handheld system has been showing remarka...

When it comes to the PSP-3000's screen, we can honestly say that we prefer that of its predecessor in nearly every capacity. We'll gladly take slightly more muted colors in exchange for more naturalistic, balanced representation. Especially when paired...

PSP 3000

 

The PSP 3000 is an improvement on the earlier PSP models. It has a better screen resolution – you can easily view the remarkable graphics at day and night. While we would have liked to have seen this device off the touch screen option, the innovative...

This handheld gaming console is a great blend of portability, outstanding game selection and graphics

There is no camera and no photo editing options with this device

We recommend this gaming console for its gaming features instead of its additional options.

PSP-3000

 

Sony has pulled out all the stops with the PSP-3000.

In July, Sony revealed the PSP-3000 at the 2008 Leipzig Games Convention in Germany, and the new handheld looks to build on the success of the slimmed-down PSP-2000 that was announced just under a year ago. This annual update has proved to be the...

Sony PSP 3000 – better graphics than competition

 

More than 5000 units had been sold of Sony PSP 3000 in 2005. To revise its success, Sony had launched the PSP 2000 in 2007 with few tweaks, slim profile, and ability to output to TV directly. Now, the company has come back with Sony PSP 3000 with...

Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) 3000

 

Is this upgrade to the PSP worth it?

External mic, feels less plasticky, colour space options

Mic isn't fantastic

If you're a heavy PSP user with wads of cash to blow, need the external mic or want to play games on a standard TV, the PSP 3000 is the sleeker, visually crisper twin to last year's model. If you're an original PSP owner and skipped the PSP 2000,...

Sony PSP Slim & Lite 3000 review

 

Last year's PSP remake gets remade again. Only without anything we really wanted or asked for…

Still a great media and gaming machine, but not the comprehensive remake we were after

Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) 3000 review

 

The PSP 3000 is basically a point update to the PSP "Slim and Lite", Sony's lighter, faster, slimmer refresh that arrived in September 2007. Recall that the original PSP debuted in March 2005, so we certainly weren't due for an update this soon, but an...

Sony PSP3000

 

The latest version of Sony's PSP multimedia portable is the most competitive yet, with a brighter screen and built-in microphone

Bright, colourful screen; superb user interface; excellent mobile gaming; increasingly broad range of features

Still limited in content options and capacity next to some alternatives, although they're not games consoles

Keep up with your TV viewing Visit the Go!View service from Sky, and you can download TV, films and sports events to watch (at a cost, of course) on your way into work.
