My colleague bought one yesterday and it looks really cool - graphics amazing. Can't believe it's based on the PS2, graphics look so much better imo...

Its been on sale in New Zealand for the last week. Looks very compact considering that its based on the PS2, but a portable play station that can be used anywhere, without a TV or computer

Great little gadget the PSP, i don't have one but like one and try to convince myself to justify £180 for one but bearing in mind the games aren't cheap.

I have seen, felt and touched one and great technology to compact it all into a small machine. However does any of you found the machine quite heavy?

I've had one since May, all thanks to a little thing called Japan and eBay! It's really great, even though i seem to use it more for music and video rather than games.

I have:
Ridge Racers (Japenese, although i know how to play it)
Ape Escape (American. Genius! But it just for the dancing monkey on the loading screen!)

Generally, i don't find it too bad. Although if you are lying on your bed and playing with it, your arms do get tired after while. But the weight doesn't really bother me. Although if you think you can put in your pocket and use is as an mp3 player, you can't. You have to put it in a bag or your trousers fall down! Big grin. (well, they don't fall down, it just weighs the trousers down quite a bit)

I enjoy my PSP, but play my GBA/DS more, because the game titles just aren't that exciting to me. Make sure to download the 2.0 update, which allows you to connect to a WiFi network and surf the internet. I find myself using it mainly to check my e-mail and watch UMD movies on airplanes; Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is coming out in late October, which will finally make the investment worth it. It is going to be an amazing game. The Sims 2 should also be fun. It shares little in common with the PC game of the same name. In the handheld/console-based Sims games you have missions, minigames, etc. I've played the two previous GBA incarnations, Bustin' Out and Urbz, and they have been my favourite handheld games. Two days ago a flight simulator game, Pilot Academy, was announced:

Well I have Need for Speed Underground for PSP and I love it. It is awesome. Also I bought some movies for if I travel and do not get a movie. It was great! Especially when I flew from DFW-CMH in one of those little planes for nearly 3 hours. I recommend for when you travel that you get a movie or two.

I got mine 2 weeks after release in Japan. Looks nice but the buttons are fiddly and after a while the games (with the exception of Ridge Racer) get boring. The Nintendo DS looks like a pile of sh@te but the games are much better - I just cannot stop playing Zoo Keeper.

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is a nightmare to play because of the fiddly controls - the PSP ends up giving you a really painful hand after a while. In the end I sold mine 2 weeks ago on Ebay. Wipeout was really fiddly as well. and FIFA was a joke - the slowdown was ridiculous.

Not sure if FIFA has been released on UK schedules yet but the US version was the one I had. Pro Evo Soccer should be a hoot though - GTA will be rubbish as the PSP doesn't have the processing power to do a proper 3d version - heck the PS2 version sucked when compared with the XBOX one.

BTW the PSP is NOT based on the PS2, contrary to some of the posts. It is about halfway between a PS1 and PS2 in terms of power and graphics.

One PSP game that I DID enjoy was a puzzle game called Lumines. Again, not sure if released in the UK yet but I had the Jap version and it was a corker of a game - perfect for handheld.

I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
