Sony PSP (Model 2000)

 

Slimmed down and souped up, Sony's latest handheld gaming device, the PSP (model 2000) offers some welcome improvements over its predecessor. It boasts more RAM to make game load times a little faster and is now able to output video straight to your...

Sleeker and lighter than the original. A/V output. Raised D-pad offers increased tactile feedback. Additional RAM makes load times faster. Displays photos. Plays video and music files. Built-in Wi-Fi and Web-browsing capabilities. Stunning widescreen...

Unfortunate power button location is unchanged from the original. A/V output lacks gaming support for interlaced-only TV sets. USB charging alternative is inconvenient. UMD load times are still an issue. Screen smudges easily

Sony's "enhanced" new PSP (model 2000) is a no-brainer for all gaming enthusiasts who seek exciting entertainment on the go. The portable gaming device features a few improvements over the original that make it a win-win proposition for new adopters....

Sony PlayStation/PSP phone in 2009

 

We last heard about a possible PlayStation branded phone back in September 2007, but those rumors died and we never got one, instead recently getting the F305 games phone instead. Now the rumors are back and a new PlayStation phone could hit the market...

Red PSP 2000 - God of War Entertainment Pack Review

 

What's In The Box Blood Red PSP-2000 Handheld Console "God of War - Chains of Olympus" Game on UMD...

It's blood red, and red gadgets are in ; Comes with a great movie and one fantastic game ; Slim PSP-2000 includes Skype and extra memory. "Chains of Olympus" graphics look amazing ; Did we mention it's red? We've had our special edition red PSP-2000...

Does not come with handstrap or neckstrap ; Does not come with Memory Stick Duo ; Does not come with USB cable ; God of War" UMD is standard white, not red

If you don't already have a PSP, this is the bundle to get. If you already have a PSP Fat or Slim and you're looking to trade them in for something cool, this is also the bundle to get. We traded in one of our old PSP-1000's and our silver PSP-2000 for...

Sony PlayStation Portable PSP-2000 Portable Gaming Console and Media Player

 

Sony's lustable portable offers more features than you can shake a Memory Stick at, now including the power to dock with your home theater.

The combination of design specs and available features really put the PSP in a class by itself. Making serious comparison to either the Nintendo DS as a gaming device or the iPod as a multimedia player would be a futile effort. With a gorgeous screen...

Slim is sexy: the new PSP-2000

 

The PSP-2000 is much lighter, slimmer, and features TV out. So why isn't it a more exciting product? We investigate.

Lighter system, Better d-pad, TV out!, Less fingerprints, Faster loading times on some games, The flood of used original systems will make buying a PSP very affordable

Feels cheap at first, Loading times aren't that improved, Battery life seems to be a little worse than the original, TV-out with games only uses a portion of the screen, UMD tray and memory card slot feel fragile

PlayStation Portable

 

Better described as a premium pocket-entertainment center that happens to play games, Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) is also premium priced - not even worth looking at unless you're of the "disposable income" persuasion.

PSP (Slim and Lite)

 

Still the best portable gaming device on the market; at least when it comes to raw graphical power

Improvements are largely superfluous, majority of faults remain unchecked

While far from revolutionary, the Slim and Light does add some minor improvements to an already impressive machine. Shame about the pre-existing faults, though.
