Pros: Games,graphics,interface;plus movie and game options
Cons: not for the kiddies(10 and under)
Summary: When you review a product you base it on what else is currently available in that market. That being said; this is the best portable gaming system available.
The games that are and will be offered are varied for everyone’s taste. I played a Japanese a couple of weeks ago and very impressed. I have been playing my own US version with 3 games that I bought to go with today since off and on since 9:00am today. I am even more impressed. The gameplay is basically, in everyway, like playing a smaller PS2. The overall review is that simple, and to the point. I would say that I am and always have been an avid gamer.(I average around 12+ hours a week) This is what I dreamt about when I was 13. No it isn't perfect, but its darn close considering available technology.
The price is fair considering that you are for all intents and purposes carrying around a PS2 in your pocket. The game sound is great. And if you have the extra cash you can store quite a bit of music on it in addition to photos you're own video and have the ability to play movies. Even if you only take advantage of these secondary options every now and then, they're nice to have and both options perform their respective tasks more than adequately.
This is foremost a game player, and heads and shoulders above the rest in its class for 2 reasons. When you you a computer or a gameplayer,90% of the output is through the SCREEN. The other 10% has to do with the controls. Both of these aspects blow away the competition. Especially the one that counts.The SCREEN.The graphics/output are so far ahead of other portable systems its like comparing a knife to a ballistic missile. Both are weapons,one is just far more effective.
The only real downside is the fragility. Those under 10 could easily break it or scratch it. However, this can be said for other portables as well. If you treat it as you would your i-pod their should be no problems.
If you are an avid gamer of many genres this is the portable for you. You will NOT be disappointed.
The PSP is the best portable gaming system available.
