"An unsemingly worthy upgrade"4.5 starson by lil-yankee
Pros: Sleek desing, lighter, more responsive, faster loadtimes, etc.
Cons: Could have used an internal hardrive or perhaps a second analog.
Summary: I used to have the white Japanese version of the psp. I now have the new revised psp slim-lite that would give me the flexibility to connect it to my tv and play it there. When I first got it, I was skeptical thinking that a single feature like playing on the tv was going to make me buy it, and in deed it wasn't, I got the psp to play on the go didnt' I?
Well as it turned out to be for me the new slim-Lite psp is a worthy piece or hardware. I don't' think that if you have a psp you should go ballistic in to buying one of the new ones but you could put it this way 'consider it'. When I went in to the store and got it, I reconsider the potential of my 230 bucks out in the streets and what I could have bough with them more than twice before I finally checked it out. My head then started with lots of remorses but then it was too late .After I got home I sort of threatened the box with the following statement "son, you better be good, thats half of my check right there".
I wasn't expecting no surprises so I just opened the box in a hand strand. When I finally felt it in my hands, the change was much noticeable than what I would of expect. 33 percent slimmer turned out to be just right. It makes it possible for more playing time without crumbing your fingers, it also makes it more pocket friendly. It was also so light, as light as my super slim Ipod-touch. The overall design is also just so much better. You now have the speakers with some common sense in the sides of the screen(which is still the same). The buttons in are also much more responsive than the predecessor's and the overall look its way better. You now could just throw the UMD in the loading door and it will find it's way, just like moses and jesus. The other buttons have also been moved around as well to make up a better design and more confort.
I will "hands down" recommend you buy this one if you dont' have one and if you do have one, then make someone you love a great gift. Give your old one and buy the new one for you.
The value of the psp is great, for me.
Could use it to access my ps3 from anywhere, play the stuff I got there and use it as a wireless controler. Could also connect it to a sling box and watch live tv, get pictures with the camera and much more.
If you have any commens, well this is america, bring your lawyer and we'll talk.
