Summary

The PSP is an awesome gadget. While the prices of the games and movies are a bit high in my opinion, the sheer power of this portable gaming system makes it worth the money. If you are a Nintendo DS owner, I am sorry to say that the PSP blows it out of the water. When you combine the beautiful screen with the ability to play games, watch movies, listen to MP3's, and even view images, the PSP is not a gaming system, but a portable entertainment center. And with rumors of the PSP being able to support email, web browsing, chatting and more, well...let just say I am glad to know I helped support Sony in their efforts! The following breaks down my top 10 list of Perks and Irks. We hope you enjoy your PSP!
