Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP-3000)
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 9, 2010

The previous version, the PSP slim (PSP-2000) was a big improvement over its predecessor. It was a lighter and thinner handheld machine that enabled us to watch higher quality UMD video and view pictures and movies straight off a memory stick duo. With the new version it was also possible to charge the battery from a USB connection. There are fewer changes this time with the PSP 3000, but the enhanced screen is a major improvement and for PSP1000 owners the PSP3000 will be a major step up. ... PROS: (1) Super Bright screen, Great for High Quality Videos (2) Lightweight Form Factor (3) UMD Slot Still Included Unlike PSPGo (4) Integrated Microphone for use with Online Gaming or SKYPE application (5) Half Byte Loader Has Been Successfully Ported for Booting SOME Homebrew ... CONS: (1) Very Strict Homebrew Game and Application Compatibility (2) Poor Battery Life; 50% Less Than PSP1000 (3) Shipped with Lots of Pixel Problems (Dead) and Screen Interlace Issues (4) Pre-Installed with Latest Firmware Version; Downgrade Unavailable (5) Wi-Fi Seems to be less Responsive than Previous Models

Black Box no 1
1 Star Review   By TheBlackBox on Sony - Official Store - Oct 1, 2011   

Back when the PSP first came out I couldn't decide whether to purchase one or not but I'm glad I did. I have all my library of games on the go. Now the problem is trying to figure what games to purchase because there are so many good ones out there!! From the PSP graphical side this system is sooo amazing the graphics look like those of the latter generation games on the PS2...only on a hand-held. I'd probably cry if Sony made a PS3 hand-held.... One thing I did not like on my PSP (the very first edition) is that the analog stick was kind of squirrelly. Street Fighter moves couldn't be pulled off and my car in Ridge Racer kept running into the wall on purpose (and stayed on the wall when I tried to drift)....I know some people would think it's because I cannot play ridge racer but I beg to differ since I've been playing it since it came out on PS1. So with that said, Sony stated that the new system has an upgraded analog stick (its better) and better position of the speakers....the older models have the speakers on the bottom not the top, tv capabilites, a whole list of other features. So later on I plan on trading my old PSP in and upgrading to a new one so that I can be happy once again to play my beloved Street Fighter and Ridge Racer games......

3 Star Review   By killermed on Sony - Official Store - Jun 12, 2011   

I like the features SONY put in the PSP, however not being able to intergrate it into my car with a SONY brand stereo does not make since. Sony car stereos come with I-pod controls, but not PSP controls. I hope the next PSP will have a touch screen, Blue tooth, and MUCH more ram. This hand held system has so much more potential for features that people would pay for. Also Sony, you might want to look into a PDA functions to attract more adults and maybe a preloaded GPS cradle for the car.

5 Star Review   By dogcatter on Sony - Official Store - Apr 29, 2010   

psp as a brand has so much potential, the form factor is 10 out of 10, but the 3d graphics leaves you wanting more. I'm sure that and the low ram is why game developers aren't making games anymore. it's meant to be a game system and a game system is all I want. adding gps, skype, camera, or other gadgets is just to cover up for the poor 3d engine. SONY PLEASE RELEASE PSP2

I like some more of it
4 Star Review   By gpezun on Sony - Official Store - Jun 3, 2009   

I buy one for my son, soon I started to like the idea he can carry his own entertaining in his pocket, some times I could use it too, even play with him. Good bonding tool with my son… only, I ask my self. There is something missing in here, the controls are kind of complicated, the colors are nice but the symbols kind of confusing for adults, kids like it but I see no reason such a nice machine be limited. There is no comprehensive interface to other devices such a PC. What really is it design for, there is already wireless internet connectivity. What is keeping sony from ditching out the mini dvd. Games can be integrated on a solid state device already. Sony. Wake up!!!

Best "portable" game system I have ever owned.
5 Star Review   By Throckmorton on Sony - Official Store - Mar 29, 2009   

I own the original 1000 model and it sill works GREAT! I brought it to my Doctors office once and he almost wouldn't give it back to me. He bought three for his children to take with on long road trips mostly, but ended up just for fun! I use it for GPS functions listening to music or watching videos. I bought the 3000 model for my Son so I could keep my old one for myself.

I have the origional
3 Star Review   By Hather666 on Sony - Official Store - Jan 26, 2009   

I have the origional PSP system, I bought it like 4 or 5 years ago. This system has served me terrifically since I first bought it. I mainly use it for music since I'm not a big gamer, but I am very satisfied with the graphics and selection of the games available. The WIFI is sorta slow and it doesn't have much internal memory, but for being the very first generation, Sony developed a very well built machine. I cannot tell you how many times I've dropped this thing and it refuses to quit (even went through the dryer once). The battery lasts for a good while, and it hasn't really lost charge capability over the time that I've owned it. You can't multitask like you can with PS3, but again, for being 1st generation, it's an amazing machine. However, due to age and use my charger jack it beginning to get a bit funny (sometimes you have to wiggle it to get it to start charging), so I am thinking about getting a new system (or I know someone that could fix mine), I don't think I'd go with the PSPgo, I know some people that have it, I've used it, I don't like it like I do mine (maybe that's just because I'm so used to mine), maybe I'll buy the PSP3000...

outdated, complicated
4 Star Review   By ddddd on Sony - Official Store - Jan 23, 2009   

I have had this system for 7 months and hate it, the battery life is poor. I can't seem to have fun on any of the games, no matter how many I buy I usually return all of them. The graphics are all poor, except for a couple games. The system is old and outdated. And who wants to spend 10 more minutes figuring out their wpa code for their wifi to work. Also you can't just buy it and play online. You have to buy a Wifi Max, and download this Team Wifi thing. The system is overall a bad creation. Did I mention that all the good games on the Playstation 3, or 2 didn't get ported. I would go over to nintendo and buy a 3ds, or ds.

nice but needs a few options
3 Star Review   By jolietjeff on Sony - Official Store - Jan 12, 2009   

The psp is a nice unit that plays lots of games with decent graphics and is a good music and video player. But the new unit is not compatible with older style batteries which cost $$$ and has no wireless bluetooth capability to transmit to wireless headphone. I suggest SONY looks out for previous customers by making batteries compatible instead of being greedy and making new batteries on future upgrades and incorporates a bluetooth transmitter for music. The WIFI is useless since it is so slow for the internet! My old unit went bad after 1 year would not read games discs!

Too light
5 Star Review   By Jillaya on Sony - Official Store - Jan 3, 2009   

I like psp, it's perfect with lots of games. But after my psp1000's wifi break, I decided to buy a new 3000. I've heard that 3k is light. When I got it, I feel, ohhhhh! Too light!!!! I even doubt: does the CPU or other stuff is still made of plastic? I can only treat 3k like my baby since I took my 1k like a self-defense weapon.

3rd one
5 Star Review   By josef on Sony - Official Store - Dec 31, 2008   

back in the day i had a fat 1001 model, it got stolen. the christmas after i got a new 3000 model, it was stolen. now im on my third one, so far it hasn't been stolen. these things are great media players and a fantastic game system, but no matter what you think, do NOT take it to school. because you may think "oh its safe in my locker" or "nobodys gonna go through my book bag" but some how people manage to steal them, moral of the story DON'T TAKE IT TO SCHOOL!!!! ive gotten off topic a little so lets get on with the review, these things are so good every time one got stolen i went right back out and got a new one, thats how great they are. so if you haven't already bought one or haven't played one (which im sure %99 of people have) get one, they're fantastic
