Playstation Portable -psp

By: kiong loo

The PSP (Sony Playstation Portable) was released on March 2005. It is the first handheld video game system to use an optical disc format and Sony continues to impress Playstation fans with very impressive specs squeezed into this portable device. This piece if baby can play movie on UMD at a very sharp resolution. The LCD is one of the selling point of PSP besides gaming capability. Not forgetting it ability to play music and surf net as well.(all in one device, dream come trues for many. Battery life has always been a problem with PSP. PSP's battery can last from 3 -11 hours depends on your usage of the device (11 hour can only be achieved if you used it for mp3 playback with LCD off).

An extended 2200 mAH battery will increase the battery life by 20%. In Japan the sale of Nintendo DS is still way better than PSP.

Sony has recently release the new PSP Slim & Lite (sounds to me like Nintendo DS lite) that uses 1200mAH battery but will have the same batter life as the original PSP because the new PSP Slim & Lite consume less battery. Not only is the PSP Slim & Lite slimmer, it is also ~33% lighter than the original PSP. Impressive! I think with the release of PSP Slim & Lite, the sale of PSP may or will overtake sales of the DS. Sony has release some attachment to spice up the life of PSP owner. The one that caught my attention most is the PSP GPS Receiver. This device turn the PSP into a GPS enabled device instantly. I am one of those gadget owner that gets bored very easier with my gadget.This add on will makes me wanna use the PSP again.
