"Worthier than the original PSP"4.0 starson by Eexpert
Pros: Better styling, refined PS2-like graphics, less bulky, brighter screen, more features, and slightly improved battery life.
Cons: Fragile, still a little expensive, and can be better.
Summary: SONY PSP, AN ANTI-PORTABLE GAMING CONSOLE!!!(Just kidding)
Apparently, the PSP is a great system with lots of optional features, better style, PS2-like graphics, and a bigger wide LCD screen for a portable device(not big enough to enjoy watching a movie, looking at the screen for a long time can damage the eyes). But I think in games, value, and quality-wise, the DS is far more superior than the PSP. The Sony PSP is by far the best(maybe the last) competitor to Nintendo in the handheld gaming market. I think that a successor to the PSP, not to be rude, a little ridiculous, because I don't think graphics and advanced technology could get any better for a slick handheld system after 3~5??? years from now. Plus, adding a hard drive to the PSP will make it way pricier, bulkier, and have lower battery life than the predecessor which is already too low for a portable device. I don't see the PSP as a must-own thing. If you already own a MP3 player like the iPod, a PS2, PS3, DVD player, and a GBA, etc. you probably do not need a Sony PSP(no offence: playing music and videos capabilities are not standard for the PSP). A small memory stick duo on the PSP costs more money. I am sure that in the near future (obviously due to the company's success in portable game systems), another possible Nintendo handheld device would have a bigger, wider, brighter screen, more "innovative" features, faster and more advanced graphics similar to that of GC (which is hopefully possible). And In comparison of the games: PSP has almost the same(UMD-disc miniature-version) games of the PS1 or the PS2. To be truthful, I am neither a Sony or Nintendo fanboy. Both the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS are absolutely terrific-quality, unique, successful, and well-planned systems compared to the mediocre Xboxes or the rushed, American-made, early-launched 360s at least. If you want an innovative handheld gaming system with decent graphics and fun games, the DS is better for you. The PSP is perfect for Playstation lovers and fans.
AGAIN, The multimedia system Sony PSP is mostly not worth it. Its fragile screen is too small to watch movies and it would hurt your precious eyes. Also the games are mostly poorer quality similar to those of the PlayStation 1 and 2 console. Yes, it plays movies and music. But, these bonus features of this system are limited and optional. Buying additional supportive things or accessories (memory card, games, UMDs, screen protector, etc.) for the still expensive PSP will cost much more money. Overall, this is an unnecessary portable gaming device in almost every degree.
