...Well, that's just the latest rumors. Since you can play music, movies, view photos AND of course play games on the PSP, this unit might lower the sales for Apple's very successful iPod
. The PSP is everywhere at the moment since the launch. It's all over the net and everyone's talking about it. The launch went very well and there's already a shortage of PSP hardware in Europe.
The black Sony PSP
good indeed, but after using it for a while there are visible fingerprints everywhere on the unit. That looks a bit bad. As a designer, it wasn't hard to fall in luv with the japanese ceramic white PSP (see the picture below).
Overall it's a very solid build machine and it feels GOOO~OOOD when you hold it. Most games on the PSP today run at 222 Mhz and not the at full speed of 333 Mhz. Only a few games so far use the full speed, Gran Turismo 4 Mobile is one example, since it drains battery a bit too fast. Sony will be releasing a new battery soon which will give better battery life for the PSP so all the games can run at 333 Mhz which overall makes the PSP more powerful than the Sony Playstation 2. But battery life isn't really a problem for me. Who runs a portable machine on a battery for more than five hours straight? I wouldn't. If so, you either connect it to a car-adapter or just connect it to a power socket in the wall.
I was actually supposed to post this thread about a month ago, but I've been too busy. I had this good news (well, for me): I pre-ordered the japanese ceramic white
version of the PSP this summer and I will get it in about three weeks. I will post a review and high resolution photos of my PSP then - so stay tuned.
I've put my website-name on this pic because it's enhanced in Photoshop and now looks twice as good as the original. There are a lot bigger versions of the ceramic white PSP and you can find them easily through Google Image Search
The PSP is priced between $189-$299 depending on where you buy it and which version. The ceramic white version costs around $279 and is only sold with the value pack. Go get one! If you live in Sweden - like me - you can save almost up to one thousand crowns (SEK) by importing a PSP instead of buying one here in Sweden. They cost around 2695 SEK here. If you DO want to buy one here I warmly recommend Webhallen.com
