Sony PSP Review
A pure Gadgetal Orgasm
By Pyr-O-Rgasm



Well, let me start off by telling you a bit of pre-buying information (that means stuff that happened before I bought it). The night before was restless. Man was it hard to fall asleep, but so easy to wake up. I was just too excited that I was finally getting this handheld I had drooled over for months. The next day was great. I sprung(by sprung I mean slowly moved) up and went into the kitchen for my every-day waker-upper..... Soda. I'm a caffeine and sugar addict, so I wouldn't be awake enough to pick up my PSP without my soda. I awoke at 6 a.m. I checked out some forums and what-not until 7 a.m. Then I got to the mall at around 7:20. I got to the actual store around 7:25 or maybe 7:30. Either way I got there before the staff, or any other pre-orderers were there. I sat for about ten minutes before the manager, then 3 other pre-orderers arrived.

We were finally let in at 8:00, and being the first one there, I was let to be the first one in line. He rings me up and AGAIN asks if I was picking up anything else with my PSP. Being a bit on the poor side I said no, grabbed my PSP, and headed out the door. The car ride home was an exciting and very anticipating one.

I finally arrived home and quickly went through all my stuff. Or at least the stuff I hadn't already gone through in the car ride home. I hooked up my PSP to the charger while looking at the instruction book, accessories, etc. Then I decided I would play with the PSP while it charged. My first impression of this beast in action was pure Awe. Capitalized for enthusiasm. The system looks really sexy even when it's turned off. It has a very sleek design, glossed black with aluminum(I think) trims. I love holding this in my hands, it's like having a gaming orgasm. Pick it up and look at the back, now flip it over to the front. Did you feel that? I did, I love it.

PSP Case
The PSP in it's soft casing that came with it.


The layout of the menu, the awesome colored waves in the backgrounds(that change monthly), the little clicks every time you scroll through options(God I love those!). Everything was amazing. I had no games yet, so I popped in Spiderman 2 the movie. Wow. That's the only thing you can really say when you see a movie in action on this thing. Wow. I bet that you have NEVER seen such a small screen with such God-like quality as the PSP has. I am DEFINATLY buying alot more UMD movies once they start releasing them. I had my friend's dad's friend(yes, confusing) tell me he'd rather have the PSP than his 700 dollar portable dvd player. I'd have to agree with him there.

The sound quality is awesome, very good. Unfortunately it doesn't get very loud. But with headphones it's just fine. Playing music on this thing is extremely simple. You connect to your PC via the USB Connection option. Then you drag and drop your favorite songs into your music folder. After that scroll to your music section and click on the song you want to listen to. I love drag and drop MP3 players. I still can't figure out how to drag and drop songs onto my friend's IPod. The Memory Stick the PSP comes with is only a 32 MB and cannot carry many songs. It's a shame. I have to go out and buy a bigger one, that's for later in time, though. If you put a few songs on your PSP, be sure not to lose your USB cable as I have recently managed to accomplish. It makes you heart-broken, it really does.

You can play MPEG videos off of your Memory Stick. Or at least I'm pretty sure it's MPEG. MPEG 4 if I'm not mistaken. I have yet to try this feature (as I ran out of room for big files on my memory stick), and I recently lost my transfer cable. But I am sure the videos look very good on it.

Portable gaming, portable movies, portable music.... What about portable picture gallery? Yep, it has that, too. Anytime you have a picture you'd like to share with your friends, or run out of room in your wallet. Simply hook up your PSP to your PC, access the USB Connection option, and drag and drop the pictures to your PSP just as you did your music. Great resolution gives pictures really good quality on the PSP. As soon as I find, or buy, a USB Cable I'll definetly be adding pictures to my Memory Stick.

From what I can tell the PSP has the ability to share games. You can use another PSP's UMD disk and pretty much sample a game before you buy it. Or just play with your friend I'm guessing. I think you might have the ability to download the game and save it on your Memory Stick for further use. Ha, new form of Piracy? No, they probably have some way of keeping the game limited. It IS Sony we're talking about here.

Game play is very Ace. Although it's missing the lower two shoulder buttons, and the right analog stick of the PS2 controller, it still works out very nicely. I only have two games, Twisted Metal: Head-On and WipeOut: Pure. Both exactly like the originals that I remember playing. Twisted Metal is back to it cartoon-like rampage feel, unlike the very dark theme of Twisted Metal Black for the PS2. The graphics for the games are just as amazing as any other part of this high-tech handheld. From what I was told, the graphics chip is actually MORE powerful than that of the PS2. Though, there is around a 5 year difference in the two, so that is expected. The only thing holding the graphics back is memory. But I assure you the graphics exceed any other handheld on the market today.

Overall, it is the best investment I've made in a long time. It's also my most prized position, sharing the number one spot with my Pc(without it, I wouldn't be talking to you right now). I whole-heartedly believe this handheld deserves no lower than a 9.5. But I'm rating it a 10. I absolutely love this, and if you're a general to hardcore gamer, I bet you'd love it, too. I have not shown this to ONE SINGLE person who didn't like it yet. My grandmother even said it was amazing. So if you have 250 dollars to spare, and the time to wait for a restock, go out and buy yourself a PSP. You can take my word for it, you won't regret it.

Hey i have a question about the PSP,does it break easy?I've been told that if u drop it one time it would break.I would like a PSP,but i don't think i'll ever gget the money. sad.gif

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Do you see those destroy your psp movies? those things take a beating I tryied it my self I played baseball with mine and it still works like a charm! dont do what I did tho...

.... I wouldn't suggest that..... unsure.gif

Anyways, in the little protective sleeve it came with, it feel about 6 feet off of a shelf, hit another shelf on the way down, and landed on hard wood flowing. I assure you it still works fine. I wouldn't suggest dropping it out of casing, though. So use protection when you aren't using it((I suggest the Logitech Playgear Pocket, cool damn case, I tell you)), and use the handstrap that comes with it.

ummmmmmmmmm. hey you, you are the most fuckin dumest retarded ass gayfer ive  ever seen in my whole pimpin life. who the zzzcensored.gif  confuses a psp with a damn phone and you need a freakin hair cut. and nose sugery. you make me want to kill my self with your little gay pictures.Please do me a favor and go stick that psp up your ass!!!

There is a 97.4% chance you'll never return, and therefore not read this, but oh well.

1. I don't care what your mommy told you, you are not a pimp.

2. The whole phone thing is an inside joke at another site. ALOT of people kept thinking it would have phone capabilities so I did those pictures as jokes.

3. Don't be jealous of my long hair. Long hair owns you. And the various amounts of girls who I know agree with me, and it's THEIR opinions that count, not some loser's opinions on the INTERNET.

4. I need nose surgery? Wonderful. Guess what? If I cared that much I wouldn't be posting my pictures on the internet. I don't care what you, or any other zzzcensored.gif-off thinks of me, or my "little gay pictures".
