"Nice design, nice idea, poor software, fail idea"2.5 starson by Ivancamara
Pros: -Virtual games, don't need to carry lots of UMDs with you
Cons: -Poor software
-Analogic is too small and has no grip
-Virtual games has the same price of UMD games
-Games are too large
Summary: I've ben playing the psp for almost an year now, and that's what I have to say:
At a first glance, this is the best psp ever: Compact design, very beautyful and charming at all, great graphics (such as the others) and you can expand your memory up to 32Gb, and the virtual games allow you to play wherever you are with only the console, nothing more.
But, if you use it a little bit more you'll see that some things sucks. First of all, the software is very poor: too slow and crashes constantly. Although you don't use UMDs no more, the virtual games are as expansive as them, and are very big (about 1.1Gb per game). While gaming, you'll notice the analog is very poor designed: it's too small and have almost no grip, so, after a few minutes of hardcore gaming, when your hands are beginning to sweat, you'll start to suffe.
So, that's it. I think I wouldn't reccomend it to a friend. I'd tell them to buy an iPod touch instead
