Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The era of no-compromises handheld gaming has arrived. Get ready for immersive, 3D gaming on a console that is poised to change the way we think about portable devices. With wireless internet, video and digital music playback, and incredible data storage and connectivity options, the Sony PSP--or PlayStation Portable--is a complete solution for the mobile digital lifestyle. Sony has hit the mark by combining both horsepower and groundbreaking features into a package that weighs just a hair more than half a pound.

Design
The PSP's exceptional performance comes from a 333 MHz processor that dwarfs the speed of competing handheld consoles. Add this polygon-pushing muscle to 4 MB of fast DRAM and 32 MB of embedded RAM, and you've got a device with graphics rendering capabilities close to that of the PlayStation2. And because no game is complete without audio, the PSP is generously appointed with built-in stereo speakers, as well Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound capability. Sony has also pulled out all the stops with the PSP display. The bright, 4.3-inch LCD sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution--plenty of real estate for heavy gaming action and widescreen-format movies. All of this is powered by a removable, and rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.

From a controls perspective, the PSP is made for gaming. If you're familiar with a PlayStation controller, you'll be a pro at the PSP's controls in no time. Directional buttons, as well as an analog stick are provided. Meanwhile, the familiar left and right shoulder buttons, as well as triangle, circle, cross and square buttons are integrated into the device's slim case. Finally, home, select, and start buttons give you quick access and control over the PSP's important functions.

Supported Media
At the heart of the PSP is a new, proprietary media format known as the Universal Media Disc, or UMD. Each UMD can hold 1.8 GB of data, enough room for rich and complex games. UMDs, which are housed in a protective cover, slide into the rear of the PSP. Sony has declared the UMD an open format for developers and media content owners, so movies, music and other media are on the horizon from third parties. Sony has also signed on many popular game developers for the platform, so a deep library of titles is on tap.

While the UMD is great for read-only media such as games and movies, Sony solves the problem of data storage with the addition of a Memory Stick Duo slot. With Memory Stick Duo media, you can store your saved games, downloaded online content, personal video and audio files, and more. When you want access to these files from your PC, simply use the PSP's USB 2.0 port to turn the device into a fast portable media drive. Then, drag and drop files such as your photos, MP3s, and videos onto the PSP, just as you would any other removable storage device. The PSP ships with a 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, and additional media with higher storage capacities are available.

Connectivity
The PSP blows away the competition in the connectivity department. Indeed, the PSP's ability to connect to the internet, and to other PSPs and USB-based peripherals, is a real advantage. At the top of the list is Wifi connectivity, or IEEE 801.11b. Use this wireless internet standard to connect to other gamers around the world for hot multiplayer action--all from your couch, or your local Wifi hotspot. As mentioned, the PSP's USB 2.0 port is great for PC connectivity, but it also opens the PSP up for a whole range of future peripherals. Sony has plans for the PSP in other ways, too; the unit's infrared port speaks of remote control capabilities in the near future.

A Digital Companion
If you haven't already guessed, Sony has positioned the PSP to be much more than a gaming device. Out of the box, the device is ready to serve as a portable video player and photo viewer. By using the new H.264 MPEG-4 video standard, Sony obviously has its eyes on making the PSP a robust video device with support for feature length movies and more. In addition, the PSP offers a great way to transport and share your photos in JPEG format. And let's not forget the music. Load up your favorite MP3-encoded songs onto a Memory Stick Duo and you've got a portable audio powerhouse. The device also supports Sony's ATRAC audio codec, so you can play songs acquired from Sony's Connect Online Music Store.

Great Games and Accessories for the PSP.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome! 18 Mar 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
the fact that they released a white psp is to add a bit of variety to the PS market and in my opinion the black one looks nicer but with the white one they have fixed the dodgy square button and they have also increased the screen quality (Not that noticeable to be honest)but its also got some extra security which the older black ver didnt have even though upgrading firmware fixes this little pronlem but if you want to spend the cash for what still is an incredible games console i suggest the white ver for the fact its made to a higher quality thanks and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read about the PSP online 10 Feb 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are so many things that can be done with a PSP that are completely free and are lots of fun. I am able to play all my old Nintendo and Super Nintendo games on it, Mega Drive games, listen to internet radio stations, watch my DVDs (after a little VERY easy file converting) and a whole host of other things...but Sony don't want us to do that!

If you look around on the internet there are sites dedicated to helping you get the most out of your PSP. All PSPs currently available with any firmware up to and including 3.03 can be used for more than Sony want to let you, so don't update the firmware, just do a little research and this unit is worth its weight in gold!

5.0 out of 5 stars The PSP is amazing! :) 2 April 2007
By M HALL VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I often become very bored in the evenings and was searching for a way to keep myself entertained. I felt that the Playstation Portable would fulfill my needs as a handheld gaming device - and in the couple of months I have owned it - I haven't been dissapointed. I opened up the box to find the instruction manual - the console and the AC adaptor - this is only the base pack - if you require more accesories I suggest the Value Pack. Anyway, I plugged it in to charge - it takes about 2 and a half hours and this should supply you with around 6 - 7 hours of battery life which is fantastic for a handheld device. When it had finished charging, I inserted my Memory Stick Duo into the slot on the left hand side of the device - this is easily done, but the memory card must be purchased seperately. I put in my first game - Need for Speed Most Wanted into the UMD case located at the back which can be opened using a small OPEN> switch. Turned the console on, at first the Sony Computer Entertainment Screen appears. Then it leads you straight to the game. As I started a race, my jaws dropped with the amazement of the graphics. These looked superb and the screen really brought the cars and scenery to life - I thought to myself this is fantastic. I exited the game to see what else the PSP could do. On the Menu I found the settings menu, so I configured some of my settings to my liking. The theme, wallpaper which you can make your own with your pictures stored on your memory card, were all easily changed. I scrolled across to the music menu and played some of the tracks I had downloaded using Windows Explorer - which is very easy. The sound was superb. The video function is for downloaded videos and UMD videos as well - which have DVD picture quality. The internet browser is brilliant and speedy - not one of them 'mobile phone' types but a proper browser like the one on home computers. This device really is brilliant, it's full of features, has loads of great games, is well built and looks great!
